Hi everyone.
I changed my tires today and installes winter tires. For some reason the rear wheels are locked and the car is not moving. Anyone has any idea how I can fix that?

Thanks.

Silly question... Did you take off the electronic Emergency brake off?

Wow. Very strange. Maybe you should call roadside assistance.

If the tires/wheels are just a tad bigger (i.e. diameter) the onboard computers may sense that. In old cars it would have the effect of gearing the car up. In the electronics age that may be enough to make the computers shut things down. Though I would think this less of an issue with a FWD car. Maybe you knocked one of the brake lines?

Hoping that this is not a troll message. Make sure the left and right side are the same size/diameter.

I have never heard of this. Are there any lights on the dashboard ? Did your mechanic play around with the brakes at all ?

Sounds fishy. I'm always suspicious of people who makes just one post and of a negative nature with no other facts or data to back up their claim. I'm going to ignore this thread.
