Abs light is off. I drove in snow for about 4 hours yesterday to get home. Plow guy clear a way into my garage and I drove in, this morning I knocked a lot of snow off the from and back wheels. I am a women don't have a clue about why it is doing this.

ok if we talking snow ,then yes pour water or buy deicing spray can from local parts store be better and spray behind the wheels if you have any

even if you but in reverse to back up from garage and give it a little more gaz it want budge , you can press ur foot on brake while u giving it gaz to keep it in place in case the wheels got loose and you are not flying back wards ,if there was any issue in braking system you will have warning lights on and you don't at this time

the wheels might have to come off if that does not work and see ,are the calipers stuck on the disc ,,or the E brake cable froze even though it is released in cab ,but not releasing rear wheels is a possibility

?

do that let me know
