Q: Stiff brakes, cannot be pressed - 1997 Suzuki Sidekick

asked by on

My car has ABS and lately I've been having problems with the brakes. When I'm driving and need to decelerate, the brakes become so stiff that I'm unable to press it. They keep getting stuck. I'm unable to drive as this is a major safety problem. What could be making them stuck like this?
