Hello everyone. I try to briefly describe the problem.
Wet parking lot, i pulled the handbrake (2 or 3 times), the anti-lock start lighting on and the car start having rpms fluctuation (1500 rpms to 500 or 2500, almost deing). As i stopped the car, the anti-lock turned off and the car has been back to normal. I have tried to move the car, and as i reached the first's gear idle, the problem appeard again: fluctuation and anti-lock light on. As i stopped the car again, anti-lock turned off and the car was running normally. I've tried to move again the car, and same story...Finally, i could move the car.
But...to see what was the cause, i pulled again the handbrake, and the problem appeard again.
So...please.Can u help me? Why the car has these symptoms when i pull the handbrake?
Thanks and sorry for my bad english.

Is the light turning on, or are the brakes actually locking up?

Have you checked the fluid level?

What fluid? brake fluid?
So: i pull the handbrake, anti-lock start lighting on, and rpm's fluctuating (jumps up and down, and the engine almoste deing). This is happening if the car is still moving. If i stop the car, all is going back to normal. If i try to move again the car, this symptoms reappears.

Problem solved. If the ABS is functional and u try making drifts, this is happening. Before making drifts, should be removed the abs electricty safety.
