I have a 2000 Ford F-150,4x4. The other day I went to back out of my drive way and the rear wheel on the drivers side locked up. Someone told me to change the ABS sensor in the axle. I did and it made a lound clunk and then broke lose. That was on Monday and I have had no issues since. Does anyone know if the ABS sensor really had anything to do with it?
I had that happen on my 99 Ranger, I tried backing out of the driveway and the darn thing would not move, then i gave it more gas a heard a loud snap, so I drove to work like an idiot, when I got to work i smelt this horrible burning and saw smoke just rolling out of the wheel, so like an idiot again i touched the wheel, **** it was HOTT. the parking brake got stuck on, so i towed it home and pulled off the drum and sure enough all the springs and everything in there was shattered, NEVER put on the parking brake again in that truck HAHA. just wanted to share my dumb-ace moment, i look back now and laugh at it
so I have my own question sorry to mess with your post, but i was told that if the parking brake is not regularly used from new its bad to start using it say after o idk 50k, is this true?????
