Have the brake pads been so very work they are down to the metal? This could cause the caliper piston to extend too far and not be able to retract properly.
Calipers Fail mostly from a cut in the rubber boot around the pistion dirt and debris get in there and rust the piston and it cannot retract properly Do they retract after they cool Down? if so the brake fluid has "boiled" if brake fluid is not changed about every 24,000 miles condensation builds up and lowers the boiling point of the brake fluid causing this problem.
Tell me does it happen after a long drive or siting a long time in heavy bumper to bumper traffic in hot summer weather? I recommend a complete brake fluid flush an change the calipers with NEW ones ot rebuilt and use dielectric grease on all points of metal to metal contact between the caliper an the mount bracket and thee ends of thee pada n the slide points they ride on and the pins that go through thecaliper and thread into the mount only dielectric not regular grease it will cause sticking and a worse problem than you have now.

most likely a brake line causing problem. it is either the rubber hose or caliper sticking. the rubber hose will collapse and cause pressure to stay on the caliper

SOURCE: elantra rear brake replacement
hiya the rear disc brakes are as front disc brakes auto adjusting however the rear brake calipers pistons have to be wound back into the caliper to enable new pads to be fitted if you look at piston you will see they have either slots or holes in the surface this is for a sutable implement/tool to fit and then turned clockwise whilst pressing piston as you wind/rotate it back into caliper for your info there is a tool made for this purpose made by draper or seeley tools which makes job easy diy and cost £9--99 uk and can be bought from most auto stores ? however it is possible to manage with the spanner with horse shoe open end commonly supplied with circular hand saws the spanner is the one used for replacing blade? i have used this in past with success but now have the expensive univesal tool for the job hope this helps?

If you smell burning - the caliper might not be opening properly.. Break might be sticking..
Jack it up.. The tire should spin freely..
If not - try bleedingthe lines real good..
PS - one should never use cheep pads..
