Re: Complete brake lock up

did you feel any hear any extra motor noise or vibration on the brake pedal, when pressing (when ABS motor kicks in, it makes the the brake pedal keel like your pressing on a fast rotating square bar)

do you have a handbrake(old style) in the middle consol (between seats or on the dashboard?)
if on the dash then it should be full electronic handbrake, or is it small grab handle type???
is it manual or auto gearbox?

were there any ABS errors on screen?

if the handbrake is ALL cable from the calipers to the handbrake then it might not have been the brakes, did you drop it out of gear (freewheel) was it still slowing...
