Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Cadillac STS 3.6.. When turning a
corner like turning into a gas station or a
neighborhood sharply with a little bit of speed my
front rim and tire stop completely as if slamming
on the brakes.. If I turn the opposite way does the
same exact thing as if the brake system is locking
up when I turn the steering wheel to the left or the
right can anybody help me with this situation and
let me know what to do

sounds like one of the wheel sensors is detecting a problem and your ABS is activating at low speeds. Either the sensor itself is faulty or dirty, the wiring is compromised, or the tone ring is rusty and cracked. I'd bet it's the tone ring.
