It is going to be one of two things,to test this,just follow these instructions,get the brake to lock up,then find the bleeder screw on the caliper.Break open the bleeder screw,and the pressure on the caliper will release,if the caliper does release,replace the brake hose going to the brake caliper,if the brake caliper does not release,then the caliper is at fault,and will have to be replaced to solve the problem.I hope this was helpful,if so,please let us know,thank you.

If the caliper is not defective, it could be the rubber flex hose going to the caliper.

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 have a 1989 Chevy pickup 1/2ton and can not get the brakes to work. I bought the truck a year ago and drove it to work and the drivers front brake locked up and cause it to melt the caliper so I replace...


the brake lines leading to the calipers could be broken someplace, i suggest checking all your brake lines including the lines comeing from the rear end

Passenger side front brakes locking up


There are a number of problems that can cause that. It could be a bad caliper which is either hanging up or not returning correctly. It could be a bad proportioning valve or ABS motor. It doesn't have to be the passenger caliper that is bad. If the driver side isn't moving then all the brake pressure will go into the passenger side. Check your pads for excessive wear also. Metal on metal contact will cause that or a heat cracked pad could be causing uneven pressure. Check your rotors for glazing as well. If the pads don't grab until high pressure is applied then the brake could lock up. Pads rotors and calipers should cost less than two hundred dollars and if you replace all of them then you shouldn't have to worry about them for another twenty thousand miles or so. Take out the ABS fuse and drive it first and see if it does the same thing. If it does, then it's not the ABS motor. To me, it sounds like a caliper hanging up. Good luck.

Front driver brake locking up


Either the caliper piston is rusted and binding or the brake hose for that wheel is collapsing internally and preventing the caliper from retracting. Check both.

Brake sticking on new caliper


If install done correctly, proper lube etc, and still sticking, I'd change flex line to caliper.
