You brake HOSE may have deteriorated, and is not allowing fluidto drain out of the caliper piston. I found out after a piston, caliper, two disks. The wheel would LOCK UP it got so bad.

It can be rebuilt, but it is easier and cheaper to buy a new one. these usually run about 15 bucks. not worth your time trying to fix the one you have. replace it.
