2007 Chrysler Town & Country Question: If I drove w/my ER brake on & then release it, can my rear brakes lock up?



aadawson, Renton, WA, July 02, 2011, 20:51

I drove about a 1/4 mile with my emergency brake on by accident, I noticed released the ER brake a coarse right away. My back rear tire was smoking really bad, dropped off my husband off at home, ran to the grocery store, & it seemed like it was still smoking, now I'm very worried that the back rear brake is locked up or something. What do I do? Is it going to be OK or do you think something is wrong with my back rear brake???

    they will overheat badly. they will hang up if there is a problem with releasing.
    have it checked at a shop to be sure.
