    Not long ago on my 2009 FLHTC as I squeezed on the front brake it seemed to freeze and would not move. Just the opposite of no brake fluid. The rear brake kept me from going from a small side street into a main street with lots of speeding traffic. Whew!

    It seems this is a symptom for a broken ABS module. After having it towed to the dealer, they replaced it in short order. Some say this is not common but it does happen.

    Sorry if this has been covered before.

    Glad you are okay from that experience.

    Me too. I was sweating a lot and praying the rear brake would work.

    That is the first time I remember hearing that problem.

    That is why I wanted others to know about the problem.

    My dealer told me right away that from my description of the stuck brake handle it was probably the ABS module.
