Sounds like an ABS issue. Turn the key and check that the abs light comes on and goes off. if it doesn't then the bulb burned out. (make sure the truck has abs first!)

I have a 2001 Sebring , brand new rear pads,rotars and calipers. Passenger side is sticking but has a lot of pad left. Driver side seems to work but half the pad is gone. Any idea why this is?


Seems like all the brake action is on the driver's side. If passenger side is sticking, it probably won't move in or out effectively. I would pull it off and check it, maybe you got it crooked when mounting it. Or just possibly a bad caliper. Also examine the brake hose on the passenger side for bulges, or anything wrong with it.

What is causing left front caliper to continually fail. Is it related to anti lock brake system?


The hose could be collapsed internally holding residual pressure and keping the pads applied. Also make sure that the caliper is sliding free side to side.

I got new ball joints(lower), new brakes (rotor, pads) and new tires but still front wheel keeps dragging at 60-80 kph. What's wrong?


It could be the brake hoses goig the the calipers. They deteriorate from the inside and swell Because you have several thousand pounds of pressure when you push the brakes the fluid will compress the calipers. But the hoses wont let them decompress, holding the brake pads to the rotors. This will cause a drag. And the hotter they get the worse the drag.

Brake on front passenger side continuously locks up (seizes). Have replaced the master cylinder, rotor, pads and caliper but problem persists. System was bled entirely and new brake fluid flushed througout...


Replace the brake hose. An internal tear in the hose can allow fluid to flow into the caliper, but collapse inside not allowing the pressure to release.

I have a 1999 lincoln continental and the front passenger side brake locks when driven for a while.


I just got a 1999 lincoln myself. And the front brakes locked up on it. Try to take off and it spit and sputter's. And floats around when try to stop. I replaced both brake calipers, pads, and one of the rotars. It had grooves wore in it. And changed the rubber hose going to the caliper. That is what the problem actually was. I noticed that the other side had already been changed beforre. But I wasn't sure. The caliper was rusted up where it got hot from rubbing. And it is posible for them to stick. Autozone $38 ea for calipers rebuilt. 40 for the pads. 20 for the rotar. And 35 for the hose. Now it drives like a dream.

Replaced rotar,caliper,and brake pads on a 2000 buick lasbre 3 and haveweeks ago and yesterday they went out again .have to replace all of it again what is causing this to happen


check and make sure calipers are not sticking, this will wear brakes pretty fast. check the hoses to the calipers for restrictions on inside or a collapsed hose. you said you put new calipers on so it may just be the rubber hoses causeing this.

The right front brake drags and gets hot


When it drags, loosen the bleeder, if it releases, the hose is bad, if it does not release, the caliper is bad.
