why is my rear passager tire locked up

Asked by Jun 22, 2014 at 04:51 PM about the 2007 Dodge Nitro R/T 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I parked my nitro in the winter for three months with no problems. In the spring I went to move my truck in reverse and the rear passage tire is locked up just dragging. What could be the problem?

Parking brake might have rusted up and or the pads to the rotors.

Tom is right. For future reference, never ever set the parking brake when storing a vehicle. HTH. -Jim
