    Similar problem with my 2001 Elantra....rear tire on drivers side locked up while driving.....if I went in reverse it would release....this happened a couple of times until I was able to get to a garage that was close by....they couldn't find anything wrong and re-adjusted the brakes anyway.......this was over a month ago and everything has been fine since.

Check to see if one of the caliper bolts came loose or one of the bracket bolts--could also be a twisted brake line

yes baby it to him and replace both calipers and rotors as they will work better with your new brake pads. Do Not Do a half a job when it comes to brakes. its your family you are dealing with. calipers are cheap rotors are cheaper and pads are also cheap. its 3 hours labour to do a complete front brake job and rear brakes take 2 hours. with new shoes turn drums replace wheel cylinders and new rear brake hardware price in Canadian for front brakes under 400 price for rear under 250 American parts prices slightly different but labour times the same

96 Thunderbird, soft brakes at slow speed otherwise brakes work just fine. All new pads. 2 new calipers and rotors 4 months ago, problem started last month. Could it be the master cylinder going?


Where the rubber brake flex hoses changed ?

Was all rust removed from caliper slides & all
moving parts lubed ?

Sounds like the job wasn't done quite right & then
there is still air in the system.

The wrong brake pads could be an issues also

The master should be okey, but should have been taken
apart & clean out the moisture around the piston

The brake hose is clogged. When under pressure from applying breaks, the piston is forced tight to the rotor. When released the fluid will not return through the hose because there is no real pressure. Replace the hose.

Master cylinder and/or brake booster could be the problem. A tiny bit of air in the system will effect your braking abilty. A fault in the ABS system would prompt the computer to trigger the ABS light. If you have brake shoes on the rear, make sure they are properly adjusted. Hope this helps.

Front brakes are sticking on and off on 2005 vibe,when the brakes stick brake pedal becomes hard??both sides start to heat up,calipers seizing?master cylinder problem?or?????


Ok Have you recently replaced the pads? Do they act normal after they cool down? Are the pads in good condition, pads that are so worn that the caliper pistons come out beond their normal limit may stick there due to excessively worn pads. If so make sure they are at least factory grade quality Good are bendix, the only thing that can cause your symptoms is a bad master cylinder because it affects BOTH front calipers equally if it was a caliper it is likely to affect only ONE. Let me ask you this happens after driving in heavy traffic or after along drive?
If So there have been countless cases of boiling brake fluid, Old Brake Fluid gathers moisture and its boiling point is lowered, Fluch out ALL the old brake fluid and have new put it.

also is there any chance even the slightest chance that something other than brake fluid even a drop or two is enough to do damage. has been added to the master cylinder at any time? If so you need to replace EVERY PART IN THE BRAKE SYSTEM INCLUDING THE ABS CONTROLLER THAT HAS ANY RUBBER PIECES IN IT CALIPERS HOSES WHEEL CYLINDERS,MASTER CYLINDER just for your information.
I believe you have a bad master cylinder but do not buy a rebuilt one only bran new and preferably from the dealer.
Please contact me if you need more help and would you give me a good rating if you feel my information is helpful.
Thank you ,Randy
