Wheels lock up after a few feet in reverse?

This has happened twice in the last month. The first time i thought I hit something along with the second time. The rear wheels lock up( i think just one of them does actually) and i come to a stop. I put it back into drive or park and then back into reverse and all is well.

Any ideas what may be happening back there?
thanks

Yep, I'd look at the parking brakes. They are just like little drum brakes with adjusters and springs, both of which can break and make that kind of thing happen.

Yep, you were both right, on the drivers side back wheel one of the pads rotted off. There was a pin that fell out and was tumbling in there, once inwhile it would get lodged in between the brake pad and rotor and lock the wheel up. Other times it would sit there partially lodged and make the light squealing sound i have been hearing for the last month.

I had to bring it in today and was guessing you guys were right. I was leaving my parking spot from work and it started sqealing like crazy so i came to a stop. Engaged the e brake and then released it, the squeal went away. Got about half way to the shop and it came back but not as bad. $200 later with all new pads, kits and labor its done

Amazed how they would just rot out like that, i mean it was in like 5 pieces when he showed me.

The materials they use these days are NOWHERE near what they used back in the day. I see you live in snow country, those type things are very prone to happen on todays vehicles much more rapidly than you'd expect. Thats why it is so important to wash all that winter road salt off your vehicle EVERY chance you get.

My dad used to roll his cars through the local car wash and get the "undercarriage special" to get all that crap off...amazingly I had to put a clutch in one of his vehicles after living many years in Northern New Jersey and I had NO trouble getting any bolts/nuts freed...because he religiously had the undercarriage cleaned...FWIW.
