I was driving my 2000 GMC Jimmy down the road and the rear tires locked up. The tranny was still in drive, but when i pushed down on the accelerator it didn't move and the rpms went up. I put it in reverse and it went back about 4 feet and the rear wheels locked up again. It seems like i can go 4 feet in either direction before the wheels lock up. I don't think its the tranny, because it was rebuilt 40,000 miles ago and i just changed the fluid. I think it might be something in the differen

2005 Hyundai Accent has the right rear wheel locked up. All other wheels appear to rotate properly on movement of the car but the right rear does not move at all. This condition was noted on start-up Tuesday and was not noted when the car was driven on the weekend. We did have the tires replaced last week but I would expect that any problems with the installation would have shown up during the weekend drive.

Have developed a loud humming type sound from the rear wheels of a 2007 Tucson. It seems to happen after driving several miles and is constant except when I touch the brake pedal when it momentarily stops. Somtimes a bump will set it off.

I have 1999 S10 Blazer. It is a 2 wheel drive 4 door with a rear hatch. The rear window electronic latch stopped working as well as the rear hatch lock. I have checked the fuses, I have swapped the relays on the two relay panels I found. On the relays, I swapped with the same type used for something else. Is there a comman thread that I can look for that may affect both? I tried getting schematics from DUY and it did not have this part of the circuits. Any ideas? Thanks.... Scott


I first would suspect the switch itself since it is affecting both. Secondly would be a broken wire. See if you are getting power to the latch when buttons/switch pushed. Test button/switch with a test light. You can also test power where the relay i ... Chevrolet Blazer
