Sounds like on reassembly , not enough care was taken and the brake pad has become dislodged( installed incorrectly with the metal back facing the disc ) allowing metal to metal contact with the rotor
take it back for rework before serious damage is done to the rotor

SOURCE: Front Brakes

Interesting, disc brakes don't normally stick. Since there is no tension pressure against the pads like drum brakes.

You indicated you replaced the right caliper and the master cylinder, but no mention of the disc or the piston (Some caliper assemblies are all in one, some are not.)

Here are some thoughts:

Disc is contaminated with oil, grease, brake fluid etc, when you brake, it is absorbed by the pad, gets hot and sticks.

You didn't replace left caliper, piston isn't working well, sending all pressure to right side.

You didn't indicate, new, used or rebuilt caliper. If used, get anew/remanufactured SET of calipers and either semi-mettalic or ceramic pads, and new rotors (I used to get rotors turned, but new replacements are now generally cheaper that turning old ones. When working with brakes I always recommend you work them as a set, regardless of how good the other side looks.

Make sure you clean the rotors with a solvent to ensure any grease or anti-rust agent is removed and dry will with several paper towels.

When installing pads, ensure you do not touch the braking surface of the pad or the rotor, body oil can contaminate too.
Make sure that the siding surface of the caliper is lubricatred with silicone grease designed for calipers (little packets are available at your parts store) On my GM Cars, it is the bolts that mount the caliper, but this varies by caliper design

Hope that is

SOURCE: brake light switch

In the 04 models there has been a recall on a part in the brake lights. You can look it up and it gives you a number to call GMC. If you truck is one of the affected models they will replace it for you.

SOURCE: THE BRAKE LIGHT WARNING LIGHT COMES ON AND THE

well here's a start towards ur problem, due to the auto circuits u have an open return to the negative side of the battery. Have you done anything with the vehicle's systems before this started? the reason fo the strange lighting is that a positive voltage is being applied to what normally would be return side. You will need to get an electrical diagram if possible to pin point area if as previously asked didn't occur.

SOURCE: abs

Disconnect the positive lead on battery wait about 30 seconds and reconnect. Take it out somewhere where you can floor it and go through the gears a couple times. This will clear error lights and establish a new acceration curve. If the error comes back then start looking for loose connections or alignment problem for abs stuff.

Intermittant screeching noise by rear passenger side


Your description makes me worry. If you have a strange, unknown screeching noise coming from the right rear wheel and now there is a burning smell. Please stop using it and have it looked at as soon as possible. There are a few things that could be the cause of these symptoms. Wheel bearing failure, seized brake caliper or frozen caliper sliders, damaged brake line, seized E-brake cable, or improperly installed brake-pads. In any case, if you continue to drive this car, with these symptoms. You may cause a break-down (requiring a tow), or cause a fire. Let me know if I can answer any other questions or how the repair goes, good luck.

Tail lights are not working correctly


I have to believe that with all of the "non related" issues happening that there is a wiring harness problem. If you track the harness back from the tail lights you will probably find a nick or a break in the line. If nothing shows then check the connection point which should be somewhere around your fuel tank. It will be a male/female fitting that will pull apart and you can check at that point with a meter if it is working to that point. If not it then you will have to work your way all the way up to find the fault point.

    Hi, I'm trying to change the rotors on a 2006 GMC Canyon and we can't seem to get the piece in front of the rotor off. Is there a schematic for them?


    Is the piece you are referring to the piece that holds the brake pads? If so there should be two larger head bolts behind that piece that holds it on to the front axle.

    Screeching noise coming from driver side tire


    The high pitch sound may come from the brake pads as metal parts hit the disc to signal the owner that it needs change. The metal parts gets exposed when the pads have worn out. The brake also has a hub to cover the disc. See if the metal plate is hitting it but this issue would appear when the wheels are in motion. Check if it is the belts, have the tension checked out. Other than that the bearings are the other items on your wheel that could cause a high pitched sound when you car is in motion.
