I have a 1998 Honda Accord coupe and both front brakes are not releasing any ideas why

both calipers could be seized or collapsed brake flex hose, although for both to go at same time is extremely unusual. the master cylinder is not clearing the port for the front brakes holding pressure in the system.

Left rear brake wil not releas

check the brake caliper if its disc brakes. the caliper maybe seized in the on position. check to see if the sliders are seized. most of the time the calipers are seized and need replacing.

Honda jazz 2006 (left abs sensor fail)

left what? front?
that is the folly of seeing a DTC and just guessing?
first off the ABS brain has no idea at ALL what part is bad.!!!!
it only reports,d. a test that failed, or as called monitors.
the tech (pro) looks at this as only clue (its real) and checks the whole system.
1: sure bad sensor (rare undamaged), sure, (look) full of dirt clods , for sure. bashed to death? sure. visuals are a top thing.
2: damage to wires at sensor or connector , look for corrosion too. in conn...
3: brakes bad, !! oops, it warning you early and saved your bacon....
think for a moment, if the ABS fires off, and attempts to slow a wheel
and the brakes are weak or sticking (locking up too) then it has no
idea on earth why? only that it IS wrong, and it dont know if the sensor is bad (rare if no damage seen) or brakes are Fubar.
i'd have taken off the wheel.
1: and a full visual on brakes, and sensor.
2: bad pads, bad caliper pistions (sticking) or air in system. or caliper slide pins seized, or rotor warped or Gawd forbid cracked,
3: wheel bearings loose (bad) or seizing (double bad.),

just focus on wheel RPM, what can make it wrong.
LOTS !!!!

if rear wheel?, add ebrake to ploy. all you said is left.

some cars are even more complex. 4wd.

I have a 2004 Mazda MPV with some wierd brake issues. I found what appeared to be a bad caliper on front passenger side, and replaced with a new one, yet this same wheel continues to seize up. What is...

If the caliper is seizing and it is not the caliper it is the module that controls how the brake fluid is distributed. I don't have my book in front of me at the moment but when you look under teh hood on teh drivers side you will see a block that has the brake lines coming out of it. That is part of teh ABS system is one is installed and is a master brake control hub if it ABS isn't installed. being that new I would assume it was equipped with ABS. There are a couple of ways you can test if this is teh problem. If I remember correctly the MPV brakes with all 4 brakes, that means you can, as a temp test, switch the lines to see if the caliper problem changes to the different caliper. If it does then you know for a fact it is that unit and not the caliper. Also, something to consider, the caliper that is locking maybe locking because the problem is actually the caliper on the opposite side. If the caliper on the left front is stuck in the open position, on occasion that will cause too much fluid pressure to the right front giving you the impression the problem is the right side and it isn't. This is rare but certainly a possibility. As a general rule you should always replace Calipers in pairs. If you replace the right front you should replace the left front, same with the rear calipers.

I have a 1999m dodge dakota pu 6cyl and both front calipers donot retract after applied

hi, sometimes rust seizes the operation of calipers, and the caliper PISTONS seizes solid. rectification is to replace BOTH CALIPERS ALWAYS. because if the left caliper works, but, the right do'nt then it will throw your vehicle into trafic or vice versa. you will need to take off the brake fluid pipe,but, if you use a BRAKE PIPE CLAMP and do one side first before undoing the caliper. the bleeding of the brake system is minimal it do'nt leak out so much. gerry

I replaced my front brake pads and one caliper and rotor, when i went to test the brakes, the car would not roll forward...they feel like they are seized...what can i do to fix this?

Open the bleeder valve and see if that frees up the wheel. If it does your rubber brake line to the caliper is defective. Its pretty commonLee

Just replaced new pads and rotors, know both rear calipers are seizing. How can both calipers go bad at same time?

Do you live near the sea? Do you use the car to launch a boat ?. The third idea is, how often do you replace the brake fluid. I absorbs water very quickly and corrodes the alloy parts in the callipers. As you pump brakes, it pushes impurities out to the end of the lines. Fronts are closest then rears.

Brand new, front passenger caliper and rotor.... still have major pull to left when braking. what could be the problem?

Most possible reason is a seized piston in the right hand caliper, did you just replace the one side or both?

It also sounds like a more likely problem is a seized caliper on the left side. If a caliper seizes, the braking system transfers the pedal pressure to the other caliper thus, the working caliper locks up. Pull both front wheels and look carefully at the wear on the pads. Both wheels should have the same amount of wear. If one side is worn more than the other, the side with the least wear is seized and needs to be changed.
Never heard of a hydraulic repostioning valve, but maybe with ABS there is one. I do know of a proportioning valve which apportions brake pressure front to back and also blocks braking to front or back in the event of brake line failure. Maybe see which he is talking about, should be able to explain the difference. Hope this helps.
