Sounds like your piston for your caliper is shot. leaking around seal onto brake pad and or ground. remove passenger tire look behind disc that is the one that will be glazed. look for wet around metal should be dry if looks like it was recently sprayed with some kinda oil its leaking. you need to replace caliper.

I have a 2006 Chrysler Sebring GTC and the passenger side rear brake is sticking. I have replaced the pads, rotors and caliper twice and bleed the brakes but the problem still persists. after about 15

Take it for a 10 minute drive. Jack up that wheel and try to spin t by hand. If it is hard to turn crack the bleeder screw and allow a little brake fluid to flow out. Tighten the bleeder screw and now turn by hand. If it turns easier than I would suspect a partially collapsed or collapsed brake hose.

Good luck and let me know what you find.

I'm having trouble bleeding the brakes. I get pressure, but then when I turn the engine on I lose all pressure. I've gone several times around the car doing the traditional routine of pressing the brake...

It sounds like
  1. you need to check your cap and
  2. keep your car running when you bleed the brakes.
  3. SHould be 3 medium speed depressions to the floor, holding the third one.
  4. slowly open the valve until the fluid has no bubbles.
  5. Start at the wheel closest to the master cylinder, Should be on the driver front side.
  6. Then do passenger front, driver rear, passenger rear.
  7. You may need to repeat a second time....
  8. Also check your master cylinder for leaks by cleaning it with break cleaner and checking for fluid leakage,

Install new brake pads and rotors all 4 wheels. Replaced front 2 calipers. Bled brakes. New clean fluid coming out. pedal is still soft and goes to floor. 200 Seebring.

Are you losing any Brake Fluid? Is it visible anywhere at the four wheels? Is it visible anywhere else?
The Master Cylinder may be defective. When you bled the Brakes did you maintain proper Brake Fluid Level in the Master Cylinder? If you didn't: and air entered into the Master Cylinder there maybe air within in the system in the Master Cylinder. You can bleed the Master Cylinder by removing the brake lines, adding more fluid, pumping the brakes, bleeding the air out of the system.
Are you losing Brake Fluid and can't find a noticeable leak? Then there is a good posibility that the rear seal in the Master Cylinder is leaking and the Fluid is going into the Brake Booster - which is the large wheel shaped drum located on the fire wall. In this case both the Brake Booster and the Master Cylinder will have to be removed and replaced. The Booster contains seals that Brake Fluid is very caustic to and will ruin these seals- causing future failures.
If no Brake Fluid is lost, no leak found: Check the Brake Booster Vacuum Advance. This should be connected to the outside of the Booster, attached to a hose, with the hose going to the engine. Check to see if this is working properly. Replace if needed.
