2002 Toyota Camry LE 4Cyl2.4L - Brakes
What can cause one rear wheel to lock up?
My wife parked the car in parking lot in the morning. She started the engine in that evening without anything abnormal to her. When she tried to drive, the car moved very slowly and skidding in a slant direction. Also the ABS light came on. She later realized that left rear wheel was locked up and didn't spin at all while the other three wheels seemed to function normally. We called a flatbed truck to tow the car to a mechanic closeby with the bad wheel on a special dolley. But when the mechanic checked the car, it drove normally and no problem was found after tires, wheels, and brakes were examined. His theory was that the brake might have reset after the tire was lifted off the ground. We are still uncertain whether it may happen again. It'll be disastrous if it happened while we're driving on the highway.
