Front disc brake locked up. 2007 Chrysler Aspen 4-wheel ABS

Yesterday, the front passenger disc brake locked up while driving. I had the car towed, and when the car arrived at my house I cranked it up and the brake was no longer locked. Just as a precautionary measure I took off the wheel and tire and checked the the caliber and pads. Everything looked good, however, I noticed that the brake pedal now goes to the floor and I have very little braking power. I took the wheel and tire back off and can now see that when the brake is applied the caliber is not moving. At this point I decided to bleed the brakes. To my surprise, when I started to bleed the brake I was unable to get any fluid out of the line. I checked the master cylinder and it has plenty of fluid. Also, I hooked up a vaccum to try and drawn fluid through the line but that was unsuccessful as well. Any suggestions?

Could be a bad brake hose. take off hose and see if you can blow thru it, very common problem. But first take bleeder out all of the way to see if it is clogged.

Front breaks lock up,while driving,park for a few minutes,breaks are fine

Could be that the callipers are jamming or the wheel is running tight. Check for wheel spin with the front wheels off the ground, they should spin with minimum effort. Could also be something wrong with the master cylinder. It may not be releasing properly and slowly building pressure to lock the brakes. After sitting for a while, it returns to normal position and releases the brakes. Mt Ford had a dud wheel bearing which would intermittently start to seize. When this happened, the anti lock braking system thought that the wheel was about to lock and would throw the brakes on and off without warning... Check your wheel bearings too.

Front brakes locking up after driving once it cools off will unlock

Have you checked GM, as well as repair shop data base
Bulletins for those brake issues?

Have you checked with professional scan tool in the
abs module for codes?

Who is replacing those parts & why?

Would seem more like an axle tone ring,wheel hub
tone wheel inside bearing hub,abs module needing to be reflashed
with an update or wheel speed sensors.

Power train malfunction & ABS light on. Lot of grinding when put into drive or sometimes front end will lock up. I did replace the front hub bearings but still having the same problem, anyone kno

Can be any number of things, I will make a list of things to check. First jack up the front so the wheels are free to turn and fit safety stands. with the transmission out of gear turn each wheel by hand the should be free to turn . check for grinding noise, check the brake pads are not worn out . check the brake cylinders are not binding, check the drive shaft joints, check the brake discs, if there is air in the system you may have to take to a brake repair shop as ABS brakes are hard to bleed by hand..

2003 suzuki aerio passenger front brake keeps locking up. i have replaced the pads, disc and the caliper,??????? drive about 5 mins and they get tight, then when used they lock up, right front only this is...

this problem is only caused by one thing on this late model car, that is a leaking hydraulic control valve in the ABS unit, this allows brake pressure to be applied to the caliper pistons without any input from the driver.

2006 Town & country makes clicking sound when breaking. Sounds as if coming from passenger side. Checked the front brakes & they're fine. They were repaced with new brakes & rotors 2500 miles...

As Chrysler says You may experience the following when the brake system go into Anti-lock.....The clicking of solenoid valves. When they changed the brakes did they damaged the ABS wheel speed sensor. It is mounted on the front axle on the back side of the brakes. Sensor & harness are one piece & must be replace toghter
