Hey, you're in the vehicle / car zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Cars / Trucks / Vans Category: Brakes

Problem:

Brake grab/lock occurs with your brakes.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

Solution:

If your brake system experiences brake grab/lock, in which a wheel acts erratically different from all the other three wheels by unexpectedly stiffening and stopping to a halt on its own, the following may be probable causes of this vehicle problem that you should consider checking:

  • The tires may be under-inflated or over-inflated per the tire manufacturer's instructions;

  • The brake pads may be worn out, glazed or otherwise their integrity is compromised because of contamination  with debris;

  • The wheels/tires may be out of alignment and out of balance;

  • A wheel cylinder piston may be stuck;

  • A caliper piston may be stuck;

  • The automatic brake adjusters (ABA) may be malfunctioning; or

  • Brake discs or drums may be damaged and malfunctioning.

Any one of the above can be the cause of your vehicle's problem, so it would be best to pay attention to the above probable causes when attempting to diagnose and fix the problem.
