    Have you changed them recently? if you have did you use the wind back tool on the rear ones?

    As for all 4 corners locking on, this would seem an ABS issue to me, best get some pro help with it tbh.

    As said above. If all four wheels have locked up and are not releasing there is a problem with the ABS unit. Can the car be driven or are the wheels totaly locked up.

    did the wheels actually lock up when driving? or do you mean that when you went to drive it the wheels were locked?
    this time of year the pads can stick to the discs if you had, for instance, washed it the previous day and the water had frozen the pads to the disc. or, if it's been parked for a week or 2 after being driven on a salty road, the pads could stick to the discs that way because of rust.
