is ther a rear brake equaliser on the rear axle? this is usually spring operated that pulls up on the rear brake limiter depending on load in vehicle may be stuck in the vehicle loaded position when the vehicle isnt carrying much weight worth a look , just jack up rear end and look for spring device centre of rear axle attached to a device with the brake lines entering/exiting if there get vehicle as high as safe to do then put blocks under rear wheels then slowly lower jack and look to see if the spring device moves down with the vehicle if not this could be the problem as is exerting pressure to rear brakes so causing them to over heat keep me posted
if it is only the front brakes locking up then i would say master cylinder but i have also seen where one of these fast lube places accidently put power steering fluid in the master cylinder and it will make all of the rubber seals swell and lock the brakes up but usually only after the vehicle has been driven for a while and you can pull over and let it cool down and take off again.they make a kit to check and see if the brake fluid is contaminated. good luck and let me know if this helped you .....................
You are not suppose to open the bleeders when replacing the brake pads.After pad removal you compress the pistons into the calipers and install new pads after cleaning and lubing the slides.Then just pump the pedal til it comes back up.Usually takes about 3 or 4 pumps.Make sure you didn`t break a brake line.If there were any problems with the anti lock brakes the light would come on.Hope this helps.Let me know.Good luck.
brake caliper is it seated properly or is it binder and pressured on??some how and do you have anti lock brakes?? if so be sure that drive shaft has the sensor ring rite close to the cv boot! if you installed one with out that ring that will lock it up to! and do you have the obs light on in panel if so be sure to check that wheel sensor hope this helps
The brake tech may have done something wrong or damaged a wheel sensor, take it back, if the problem started after the work on the brakes it is a safe bet they did something to cause the problem, one note as long as those warning lights are on the ABS and traction assist are disabled, no problem in dry weather, winter another thing.
