How can we help? What year is the car? What brought you to the conclusion that it is a right side issue. What did you do in checking the brake hose and why did you replace the caliper. You were not wishing hoping,pushing poking where you. Don't throw parts at anything till you familiarize yourself with the system your working on. If your referring to the ABS Module you'll need some professional help with that and it's not repairable by you.

2005 Honda Civic hybrid front right brake keeps locking up I've replaced pads and rebuilt the caliper. The front right side is the only one locking up

check the brake flex hose on that side for an internal problem with it like separating and not allowing the fluid to return/release.

196 Tacoma wheel feels like it is locked up

Pull the hand brake. Block the rear wheels and transmission in neutral. Jack up the front wheels, first rotate the right wheel and if it slightly resists, its normal.Similarly check the left wheel also. If any one of the front wheels is hard to rotate, remove the Tyre and service the caliper assembly by greasing the pins with graphite grease. Also check the piston of the caliper assembly if it is not stiff. If so, free it up or replace the caliper kit with a genuine one on both sides. Always service both the front and rear brake system simultaneously.
If both the front wheels are jammed, the probable cause is the brake master cylinder assembly which need to be replaced with a new one.
If both of the front wheels are found to be normal, lower the front wheels and lift up the rear wheels. If any of the rear wheels are found to be partially of fully jammed, readjust the rear brake system or hand brake cable.

Overheating brakes

I think the problem is the brake pad or caliper, brake pad are too thick or the caliper are not good casted.
First try to confirm if you get a right brake caliper ,then confirm the brake disc ,brake pad, if they all ok, tear down the bracket of caliper, put into brake pad, then put into brake rotor.

My right front wheel brake is jammed while driving

Could be a stuck caliper, a bad flex hose at the wheel, a faulty antilock brake hydraulic control unit (depending on how your vehicle is equipped).

Possibly a right caliper not releasing, either a frozen caliper, or a bad rubber brake hose on the right front. After driving the vehicle, put your hand on or near the center of both front wheels and check for differences in temperature. If the right side is hotter, start checking caliper and hose.

you don't lube the piston only the studs that hold your caliper it have to slide freely on them some times rust, dirt or using the wrong tools for them cause them to drag or jam i hope thats your problem otherwise i recommend to have it checked by a specialist as you may have issues with the antilock valve body or the splitter !

this sounds like the rubber flexy hose is breaking up and blocking the line, see if you get fliud flow if you release the hose at the caliper, if it is not gushing out when you press the pedal then loosen the body end and try again, if it then flows well change the flexy pipe (or both to be safe) then re bleed and road test

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.
