2005 Honda Civic hybrid front right brake keeps locking up I've replaced pads and rebuilt the caliper. The front right side is the only one locking up

check the brake flex hose on that side for an internal problem with it like separating and not allowing the fluid to return/release.

What woud make the breaks lock up 1989

That's such a safety issue. Pencil in a repair date and take your car in for a complete inspection of the brake system.

Manufacturers, at least a lot of them, used a split diagonal brake system lay- out, meaning two separate brake systems, one for the left front and right rear, and one for the right front and left rear. Thinking was, in the event of brake failure, only one system went bad, but the other brake system would still work, with brakes on both front and rear of car, but diagonally, was a safety feature of the time. If you have two brake fluid reservoirs, you have a split brake system, whether split front system with disc brakes and rear system (a smaller reservoir) for drum brakes, or split diagonally as I described.

Nonetheless, both systems work off the same brake master cylinder. I would want a brake specialist to inspect the whole brake system, especially if it has anti-lock brakes. Somebody needs to test all that old, old stuff.

When applying brake pedal in a quick stop seems the front right wheel is locking up what could be the problem

Sounds like the right front brake caliper is locking up. Make sure they change the brake hose, when you have the caliper replaced. Both sides should be done at the same time, along with the brake hoses and pads. They will also have to check the rotors, due to the heat from the brake locking up, they warp and may not be reusable.

Front brakes locking up

Sounds like the front brake hoses went bad on you. Fluid goes into the calipers and builds up pressure, and applies the brakes, because the fluid can't come back out of the calipers. Usually when hoses go, they tear on the inside, creating a one way valve type of flap. I hope that this helped. Best wishes to ya.
