When pulling out of driveway my car felt like brakes were engaged as I turned. Drive straight and it was fine but as soon as I turned the wheel any the brakes seemed to engage and lock and car would not go normally. Felt like when you're stepping on brake and gas at the same time

    4x4 is activated, may not show it on the indicator! Switch it to 4x4 hi then back to 2wd. See how it does then!!
