Most likely, the caliper is stuck on its support pins and fails to slide on these anymore. (The amount of sliding moton, when the brakes are appplied, is very small.) When the caliper is frozen" on the pins, one brake pad wears much more than the other, and puts undue side thrust the rust on the rotor. This is a common problem in the "rust belt" where road salt is present (and yes, it can happen over just one winter season). If everything else about the caliper assembly is ok, the fix is to install new pins, bushings, pin seals, and brake pads. Also, lub the pin parts with appropriate grease at assembly.

Brake Caliper will not release

The only things I can think of is ether a kink in the right side brake line or the proportioning valve is clogged or stuck or the ABS valving is clogged or stuck. Its possible the system has become contaminated with moisture???

Renault Traffic 1998- Front passenger side tyre had a vibrating sound thats comes n goes when moving in straight line. It sounds like the brake is slightly on. The vibration stops when cornering.

If your brake is not releasing you could have a stuck caliper. What I would try first though is the brake hose going to the caliper. As the hose gets older the hose walls tend to break down and weaken so they collapse when the pressure releases not allowing the fluid to go back.

I have a 2001 Hyundai accent I recently just did my breaks and now its locking up and smells like burning rubber could this be because of my abs fuses

ABS fuses causing wheels lockup???
You REALLY need to read these two articles!

Where's The Fuse?

What Else Could Be Wrong?

If you pushed the piston back into the caliper without opening the bleeder screw, you may have damaged your ABS unit...but this would not be the result of a fuse.

The most likely cause would be dirt in the caliper. It is common for the pistons to get stuck if they are pushed in over rust and corrosion.

It could also be caused by damaged brake hoses - especially if the calipers were left to hang from the hoses when they were removed to replace the brake pads. The weight of the calipers can pull on the hoses and cause them to come apart internally. They can act just like a heart valve. They will let fluid into the caliper, but will not allow fluid back out of the caliper. You cannot "SEE" this from "LOOKING" at the hose. To diagnose this condition, open the bleeder screw on the caliper and if it frees the stuck wheel, the problem is the brake hose.

Brake pedal all the way to the floor...Possible abs module?

Im going to assume that a mechanic has already checked for the most simple causes like making sure the brakes have been bled. If the abs module is faulty it will default to just a no abs state, but that wont cause the pedal to go all the way to the floor. I agree that replacing the caliper is probably gonna fix the problem, but I might try to bleed the brakes first and see if that solves it first...

Changing 4 calipers and there is no oil com out when try to bleed

The master cylinder supplies the pressure to the brake fluid that travels between the maste brake cylinder resevoir and the brake caliper pistons (through the brake lines. If the master cylinder fails there will be insufficient compression of the brake fluid to make the calipers operate as designed. Leaks in the brake lines and/or cylinders is a possibility, and unrelated to functionality of the master cylinder. Also, pistons located in the brake calipers can form a corrosion ring on their inside walls if there is breakdown in the brake fluid or moisture that gets into the lines. Operating the vehicle when there is insufficient brake fluid in the master cylinder resevoir can also lead to air getting into the brake lines, causing bad working brakes. Air compresses more than brake fluid, and the master cylinder isn't designed to compress air in the brake lines. Sounds like a bad case of "lack of maintenance", as opposed to bad advice from the mechanics. That said, there's no excuse for bad installation. But, it's tough to improperly install a brake line since they are nothing more than hollow metal tubes. There should be no rubber connectors installed in the brake lines. When bleeding the brake lines one must remove all of the trapped air before you will see any fluid appear. If the valves in the master cylinder are not properly operating the master cylinder will not allow the brake fluid to get into the brake lines.

Hope this helps.

92 f150 XLT Left front brake drags,ABS & brk lght stays on

The ABS is only a sensor and won't effect the brakeing even if the light is on. the only thing I can think to check is the steel brake line that connects to the rubber line. May be it's pinched and isn't letting the pressure off when you let off the brakes.
