    lets back up now i know that you front caliper are sticking you need to get the pads to release from the rotors first of all. remove caliper, remove you brake piston with ultra fine sandpaper make the outside of the piston shiny silver. lubricate it with hi temp grease. re-install.
    reassemble. the bleed brake line very well to get any moisture out of the brakeline fluid should be clear.

    i hope this helps shack

My break wont push in so i can start my car

I would be checking the battery and having a load test done on it to check for a dead cell.Clean the battery terminals to shiny clean and make sure they are tight.. That may fix the dash lights problem first. The brake action will be stiff unless you get assistance from the booster which you will not have unless the engine is running

Got a guy to change break pads for me on my car. breaks now drag

i assume you mean the front pads, because the back are probably it both front wheels or just one? if it is the front brakes locking up, its either the hose to that caliper is collapsed or the caliper it self is faulty. if its the rear brakes, its possible they were put on backwards...little shoe goes toward the fron and the bigger one goes toward the back...maybe they were put together say if this guy that did your brakes, cant figure the problem out, then he shouldnt be doing brake jobs!

Poor breaks

When you open the breaking system you allow air to enter the break lines and that will cause squishy or weak breaks. You have too "bleed" the air out of the lines now. The way to do this is to have someone help you with this process. They will need to pump the break pedal until the break pedal is stiff and hold pressure on the pedal while you open the valve on the caliper or wheel cylinder(disc or drum) until you have a steady stream of fluid with no air. To ensure you get all the air out you need to start from the passenger rear tire,then driver rear, pass. front, driver front. Make sure you slip one end of a hose over the bleeder valve and the other end in a container so that you don't allow the break fluid to contaminate the new brakes,
