hydro...you ever get brain lock...or is it hydrolock?
Mad guy...Disconnect the caliper from the brakeline. If caliper retracts you have an internally failed line (rubber hose). if it does not retract, caliper piston may be frozen, or the piston cocked in the bore while you were pushing it back in. If that's the case you can rebuild it, but the price on most reman calipers is low so you may consider replacing it.If the ont on the opposite side si balky, replace both.

I would replace the rubber brake hoses at the calipers. They get damaged internally when the calipers are left hanging while replacing pads. I've seen too many garages and shops do it not knowing what is going on inside the hose.

SOURCE: I have a 2007 Awd,
Disconnect the harness and then check the brake light switch near the brake pedal. It can be checked with an OHM METER for continuity. If its an open (OL) displayed in the meters window replace the switch. The brake light switch on the pedal area operates the 12 volt lamps at each side of the vehicle only. The upper brake light operates on a 110 inverter since the bulbs are 110 volts. Upon wiring the trailer harness wire the brake lights to the same circuit to the tail lamp circuit for each side. You probably had them wired to the directionals instead causing this problem
