Are you sure its locked up or just rolling and not responding to pressure. I had an Mazda MPV 4x4 and the wheels would NOT lock up ABS kick in in foul weather, wet roads, snow etc and I would just glide most the time. I could not tell what was going on. No friction or grip sensation from the tires whatsoever. There was some so or fault with the ABS system or proportioning valve system and pressure would not apply to the shoes/wheels braking system. I eventually disabled the ABS after many close calls (going through RED lights right across the interest, into the back of many vehicle only missing because I steered of into the sidewalk or ditch, and not making some turns). I got rid of it at the end of the warranty. The never were able to fix or isolate the problem but with ABS disabled I was ok in the last year. I know its a terrifying experience.
