Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer
Making the assumption that you have fitted standard size tyres (wider or higher profile tyres can scuff on guard ). If that is the case chances are your suspension needs to be looked at - check the tyre for scuff damage - where ever it is scuffed that is where it is rubbing if the suspension has sagged like a broken spring there is just not enough room for the tyre.

The Selectable Four Wheel Drive (S4WD) system uses an actuator located on the right side of the engine oil pan to engage and disengage the front drive axle. This actuator, or the mechanizm that it connects to is probably malfunctioning. If your light is coming on, most likely the problem is NOT in the transfer case.

first thing i would advise you to do is call the place where the brakes were done, then if they ask you to drive it back, i would be very careful driving it back, since "BRAKES STOP WORKING WHEN THEY OVERHEAT" the best way to help them diagnose the problem is if you can take a little sniff/smell from each wheel you would narrow down the possible causes to the problem. on those models they have brake hoses that swell-up inside and won't let the brake fluid pressure back, so the brake caliper won't release the brake pads from the brake disc. causing the ugly smell, like rubber, sort of makes you want to throw-up? so don't smell too much please. a brake hose restriction would most likely be on one wheel only. if your brake fluid is contaminated with some other kind of fluid i.e.transmission fluid,power steering fluid or any other kind of fluid it would cause more than one wheel to overheat and the brake pedal would have a hard time going all the way back up. (check stop lamps if staying on, or battery would be dead in mornings) if fluid contamination exists. i strongly recommend that all your brake parts be replaced, except the brake pipes - pipes are made of steel - SAFETY FIRST!!! it's your life and everyone else's on the road that are in your hand - or foot in your case.please keep me posted of progress

Something on the break system is leaking, maybe a pipe or even the caliper, every time you push pedal you are pushing the fluid out of the system. There are two types of pipes, a flexible and a copper one, check both for leak, take wheel off first. ( Put it on axle stands not on bricks)

You may have a stuck brake shoe. The smell is more likely a burning carbon smell, which would be the break pad itself. You will need to crawl under and see if any visible burn marks or burned wires are present. Outside that, move to the actual break. 1 possible sign would be large amount of "dust" on the wheel and around the actual break, more than with the other 3 wheels.
