I was recently in an accident where I hit another vehicle hard enough to break the transmission motor mount and now both of the brakes on the front end are locking up, why would it happen?

Either your hoses or master cylinder were damaged, and or your ABS system is activating when it's not supposed to happen. Get this checked out ASAP as you don't want to crash the vehicle, hurting yourself or others.

jack all 4 wheels up and check for brake equalization , making sure the rear brakes are working the same as the fronts. you could have a kink in the line to the rear brakes and your only stopping with the fronts. have somebody step on the brakes and hold it ,take a pry bar and try to turn the rear wheel, if it s turns check your fluid pressure to that wheel by opening the bleeder screw, tighten it while the brake pedal is all the way down & repeat if necissary.

And your vehicle was repaired by a profesional facility?? Have you brought this to thier attention? How long between the collision & the problem? Something overlooked during the repairs? Contact them for an inspection. Call your ins. co for a reinspect if you don't like the answer.
