Try adjusting the push rod on the brake pedal so there is more play. It could be too tight and causing your problem

SOURCE: My 2007 Kia Optima has

I had the same problem with my 2007 kia optima. Replaced the pads at about 30k, The pads tend to get stuck and not fully release from the rotor. I took mine to the dealership at around 45k and they replaced the calipers and pads under warranty. According to the dealership the rear brakes are suppose to be serviced every 15k to prevent this from happening

A few hunderd possible causes - sticking pistons, frozen slide pins, loose pads, worn pads, offset/loose/missing bolts - caliper, worn hub bearing, defective master cylinder, malfunction in the master cylinder vacuum boost bellows. Anybody's guess

SOURCE: brakes lock up after driving 10 km

Eighter you have problem to the to the anti lock brake modelue like a connection .Or there it a stuck valve inside BPMV witch is the molelue likely a dump valve witch is suppose to release the pressure .Unpluging the vacuum hose to the vacuum booster control will just disable the power brakeing mode .Try to figure witch wheel or wheels are not releaseing because the anti lock feature should not come into play unless there are extreame brakeing conduitions .See if its not a problem with a caliper sticking

Check that the calipers can slide freely on the mounting pins. Check brake pads for wear. AS the front and left front brakes run different circuits for fluid ,check for problems in the master cylinder.

Front brakes lock up


your brake calipers are stuck! replace the brake calpiers and won't hurt to replace the hoses at the same time.

Replaced the brake booster how do you adjust for


Possibly the Proportioning valve. its where the lines go after the master. it has a bleeder screw of some sort on it. The pins inside wear out and stick causing uneven pressure. Replace or rebuild it if that be the case. Also chect the master for fluid leaks at the end of the piston where it connects to the booster push rod. If its leaking rebuild or replace it.

Brakes locking up


Similar problem on a Toyota truck. Turned out to be a combination of items.

Bad valve in the master cylinder.

Contaminated brake fluid.

Basically the heat in the rotors was boiling the brake fluid cause it to expand and lock up the brakes.

Not sure if the fluid contamination was caused by the master cylinder or the other way around. (it is the whole chicken or the egg argument.

My recommendation is start at the right rear wheel. Drain the fluid until it is at the bottom of the reservoir. refill with new fluid. Bleed the entire system. working your way around the truck from longest run to shortest. (Distance from master to the wheel)

Take your time and don't rush the job. After you have flushed and bled the system, go for a check ride. If the condition continues, you likely have the defective seal in the master cylinder.

Good luck, let me know if you need any other info.

Front calibers keep locking up on my 96 dodge dakota 5.2


I would replace the rubber brake hoses at the calipers. They get damaged internally when the calipers are left hanging while replacing pads. I've seen too many garages and shops do it not knowing what is going on inside the hose.

Front brakes locking up...


I have a couple ideas for you. first make sure you bled out all 4 wheels making sure to get the air out. also check your abs module and see if it has a bleeder screw on it and bleed it. The second thing is after you drive it, does it seem like the brakes don't release after braking? is it ok when it's rolling? you may have a collapsed brake hose from your body to the calipers, allowing pressure through, but not back. This also makes sense after a few miles, when your brakes are just getting warmed up. after it starts locking up, jack it up and see if the wheel will spin. then see if the caliper piston will go back in. if it doesn't want to go in as easily as it should, or not at all, open the bleeder and see if it goes back. if it does, there's your problem, the hoses.
good luck!
