The left rear brakes are locking. The pads and rotors are ground down to the point of needing replacement. The pads and rotors were replaced and components cleaned. The problem is still occuring. The ABS, antilock, and service vehicle soon lights will come on after start up. They will stay on until the engine is shut off and restarted. The vehicle will not start. The starter will crank, but the engine won't start. First visit to dealer: Fuel pump was replaced. Second visit to dealer: Oil pressure sensor was replaced, third visit to dealer: Vehicle theft deterrent codes appeared in computer. Dealer does not know how to fix yet and problem still persists. The problem is intermittent. Occasionally the care will be hard to start requiring taping the accelerator to start it. If it does not start then, it will not start no matter how long it sits (recommended by mechanic.
