Ford crown victoria: My crown victoria 2001 experiencing trouble

Customer Question

My crown victoria 2001 experiencing trouble since last few days. Last month while driving it suddenly splashed check engine and F sign indicator along with some sound on accelerating . Later I checked a local mechanic, he cleaned battery terminal and check engine sign disappeared. He replaced on small part on engine belt and said if not changed, belt will slip down. After that car ran smoothly more than 1000km. Last some days Front ac panel stopped throwing air only leg side and dash board side getting air. Also car making a sound on accelarating and braking after***** Since yesterday that noise became regular and evening car rear tyres jammed completely. Car is not moving on accelerating.

Hello just so I understand you correctly the back tires are locked up?

Hi, yes back tyres are currently locked up

It sounds like your brakes are locked up. That will prevent you from accelerating. You will need to get the rear brakes repaired before anything. They can be frozen hydraulically or mechanically locked as they are park brake calipers. I would repair the rear brakes and re test for proper operation.

Can you give an idea about repairing brakes?
Also can you let me know the possible cause of this issue considering my narrative about the problem
Expert:  James replied 2 years ago.
The noise while trying to accept late is most like being caused by your brakes. The vehicle itself if the AC is blowing out of the floor and defrost only this is usually a vacuum issue. There are vacuum lines that going into your AC module that make the air switch directions. From the floor, vent to defrost. It sounds like you are getting vacuum if you are getting the floor but you might have a bad solenoid inside the AC unit not giving you vent.
