Are the back brakes fine? How do the front brakes look? Another thing to remember is that one of your wheel bearings may have seized up thus locking up your wheel.

SOURCE: front brakes stay locked up

You may want to replace your flexible feed lines to the calipers. Any little bit of **** in them will not let the brake fluid out of the caliper,

SOURCE: 95 olds cutlass supreme sl with 3.1 6 cyl. ABS and

you may have a ABS problem. I would drive it and attemp to skid the tires an dsee if the pump activates. sometimes this will unstick any valves inside the ABS unit. you may need to have a qualified repair shop check deeper. the ABS will have a code, and a scanner will be needed to check further.

Front caliper keeps locking up

If you changed the caliper and the brake pads are staying applied, check for a faulty hose. The hose can collapse internally and not allow fluid to flow back to the master cyl.
Also make sure the caliper slides on the spindle correctly.

Front brakes sticking on almost every trip. New calipers new master cylinders,new hoses, new fluid new vaccum valve to servo, new vaccum unit but still happening Where's the problem !998 806 Eden...

A few items you could ckeck, adjustment of the pushrod from the pedal to the master [ if it's set to long, the pistons inside the master Cyl. wouldn't retact enough to let the fluid flow back into the master Cyl, properly causing the calipers to drag. this would become worse when the fluid and master heated up.], - The proportening valve may be faulty and blocking the fluid from returning to the master from the front brakes, - If the vehicle has Anti-lock brakes it could be in that system.
Good hunting!

98 Wrangler Sport - brakes - the front passenger calipers

you could have a brake hose that has a piece of rubber making a flapper valve that causes brakes to stay on.or the proportioning valve has gone bad on you. if the brakes were notmush before you changed the hydralic stuff then perhaps bleeding was done incorrectly. just open one bleeder at a time and let it drip a few minutes then go to the next. make sure mast. cyl. doesnt go dry

Ford f250 diesel . front brakes come on when driving, don't have to use brakes. changed all calipers and hoses. if i bleed the calipers then they will start to release, sometime you can hear the brake...

sounds like a bad master cylinder, next time brakes are locking up , open bleeder screw and see if that releases brake at that wheel if it does then replace master cylinder, good luck.
