Need some help asap! No idea what went wrong!?!
Hey everyone. I very recently got a 2005 jeep grand cherokee , 3.7l v6. 4x4 (standard). This morning i was pulling out of my driveway (reverse), and as soon as i reached the end of the drive way at the street ( about 10-15 feet from the parked position) all the sudden the jeep came to a complete stop! Never happened before. I was not giving it any gas what so ever. I was simply letting the jeep roll (in reverse position). The engine did Not shut off nor did i get any kind of message or notification on the dash. I put it back into drive and it whent normally back up the driveway and i parked it. I tried to reverse again following the same exact steps and it didnt do it again. But when i got i to the lane and put the gear into drive and slowly took off, i noticed a sound that cMe from the front left aide of the jeep. Any ideas? I parked it and havnt tried to run it since. Help anyone ?? Thanks!
To give it some more detail, it felt like all my tired locked or something. The feeling was as if i suddenly slammed my breaks on. The tires even made screech in the pavement. No leaks are apparent, i briefly inspected beneath the jeep (visually) and nothing seemed out of the norm. Trucks got 133,000km's on it. Very good condition inside and out. As soon as i felt this i just parked it and had to get to work , any clues??? Thanks again to all!
I'm going to also say ABS issue. I think I've seen this before. It's the electronic thing on the wheel hub isn't it? Electronics on a braking system frighten me worse than a fuel injection system and I'm glad I don't have to mess with either one. It's good that you were caught by a stuck brake instead of a jammed brake that stopped working entirely in fast traffic or on a hill. At least you and the Jeep escaped that nightmare.

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....
