the warning light thats on sounds like the brake system warning light. it is a circle with an exclamation mark in it and has parentheses on the outside of the circle.

If your wheels are locked up you might have serious brake problem. Do you know if you have rear drum brakes or rear disc brakes? A rear caliper could be hanging up. rear brake cable could be stuck. You probably need to take the wheel off and see what is stuck back there.

I know a bunch of male and some female mechanics and I don't believe any of them have ripped someone off because they were female. But if you are worried about something like that happening why don't you have your brother take it in for you? Look far a place that will check your brakes for you for free. get an estimate on what they say it needs and then you could go somewhere else and get a second opinion. See if they match up or not. And what the differences are between the two estimates.
