Just changed oil and truck has no oil pressure and is making noise

Today my father-in-law called to tell me that my brakes were on. I parked my vehicle at his house and left it for the day. I assumed since it was broad daylight that he was mistaken and my brakes were not on. However, upon my return after dark, sure enough, the brakes were on. The engine was off as well as all lights. Got in the vehicle and did the dashboard diagnostic run through but nothing showed up. Can you help me? Shorty

I just had another front wheel bearing replaced (again) and the mechanic says that he thinks there is a problem with the rear differential, but he can't do it (not a Ford mechanic). He said to take it to Ford, but that the cost might make more sense to get rid of the vehicle. Any idea the price range of rear differential repair/replacement for a vehicle with 67K miles?
