Look under the hood and on the driver's side at the booster behind the master cylinder. Check to make sure that the vacuum hose is still in tact and not damaged. If this is fine, replace the booster. What this item does is amplify your push by using vacuum to pull a diaphragm and push the rod into the master cylinder. If the diaphragm is damaged internally(no vacuum), you will need to push on the brakes like an old world war 2 duece and a half to stop. Let me know if you need anything else.

Testimonial: "Checking the hose is something other information sources missed. Thanks for your help! L. Ledford"
SOURCE: excessive heat front wheels
I would go with the possibility that no lube was used
on the caliper abutments,slides,pads,etc,unless you
did all the work yourself & removed all rust & lubed it
It would seem, assuming the new master isn't the cause,
that the ABS Hydraulic Unit may be corroded inside &
not releasing the brakes or the ABS Electronic Module
for the HCU is somehow not working correctly
Was the problem there before all the new parts
Did you check for codes?
Not just with a code reader,need a professional scan tool
that sees manufacture codes,not generic like a code reader

Testimonial: "It seamed as if the front brakes were working more than the rears, that's because I did not use a C-Clamp to reset them. Now I know that every time brakes are done you have to push pistons on calipers all the way back, so when everything is installed back and you pump the brakes the caliper pistons adjust evenly against the rotors. Now my wheels get heated up the same due to same brake friction. Thanks very much for your help, regarding the ABS I will monitor it to see if its acting up."
