Are you saying the brakes locked up when your driving? When exactly do they lock up? Is the pedal hard?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
it happens while in motion driving. Like someone is stepping on brake. When you pull over and stop you can't move car for 30min or more then it's fine for days. When they do this the pedal is hard.

Are you there
Expert:  Brad replied 10 months ago.

When it happens again you will need to jack up each wheel to determine which one is locking up. When you find the wheel then you will need to loosen the bleeder screw and see if it releases and allows it to roll.. If it's a front caliper I would advise to replace both fronts..

Already replaced.

Which wheels are locking up?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Seemed like all of them .
Expert:  Brad replied 10 months ago.

I will need to know which ones are locking up to get an idea on what's going on. You will need to jack up the vehicle and spin each one to determine which ones are locked up

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Have to get back to you. So far unfortunately this has not been a help. I'll check wheels next time it happens.
Expert:  Brad replied 10 months ago.

I can't help unless I know what's going on... I will need to know which wheels are locking up then I will get an idea on what is happening..

Glad I could help,
