Q: Front tire locking up

asked by on

The front tire of my car locks up when I drive.

A locking front wheel can be catastrophic in many cases. Your vehicle may be experiencing failure in its ABS system. Also this can be a result of a ceased brake caliper. I would have a certified mechanic take a closer look at your tires and your ABS system to make sure that the correct repairs can be made.
