Two things can cause this condition. First the piston in the caliper is hanging up, in this case replace it with a complete unit, they aren't that expensive anymore. And second, the rubber brake hose that goes to the caliper often times swell on the inside and cuts off flow, you can force fluid thrugh it by applying the brakes but it won't let the fluid return.

Seized caliper which is causing the brakes to be one all the time, and therefore overheats. Take it to the shop for strip down and lubrication.

It's more than likely one of two things.Either the brake caliper pistons seized and didn't let the brakes release, or you have a wheel bearing seizing up. just check it out ! good-day !

Emergency brake stuck on 96 plymouth grand voyager


usually if you grab the e brake cable just in front of the rear wheel and shake the hell out of it on each side of the van it will let go. later you should fix the problem because it will only get worse.

E-brake is stuck on 96 toyota tacoma


the rear brake pivots maybe seized. look at the back of the brake drums see where the brake cable meets the brakes, there is a leaver there that is suppost to pivot if it is seized. you will need to remove the drums unbolt the e-brake leaver and take it apart to clean the rust out. you maybe able to unseize it by spraying wd-40 into it and working it, but you will need to take it apart to prevent it happening again.
