First thing to do is visually inspect the front brakes ASAP and figure out what is going on.

One pad might be down to the metal or you might have a object stuck in there.

What do you mean when you say your brakes feel like they are locked?

It sounds like you have a tranny fluid leak. It could come from the tranny oil cooler (common problem).

Check if you still have oil in the tranny.

Take care of this quickly because you could kill the transmission.
