95' Caddillac Deville Concours
This just started a few days ago I was backing out of a parking space when out of the blue it felt like my rear wheels were locking up. Took me a while to figure out that for what ever reason when I go in reverse my rear brakes engage. Also noticed today that it's not braking as well as it should be. Took a tight turn and really had to pump brakes. Should also mention ABS light has been on since i bought always had traction disabled light on though occasioanlly it would turn off for a few min then turn back on. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Brakes don't engage by themselves. Maybe the parking brake is not releasing and is dragging. You need to pull the wheels and have a look.

So if it is the parking brake is that why it only affects going in reverse?

I suspect maybe you only FEEL it in reverse. Jack it up and try to spin the wheel by hand.
