The only thing that I can think of doing is to open up the zerk fitting ( bleeder ) and trying to force the inner pad inward ( which will compress the piston and release the pressure ). I hate to suggest a big flat blade screw driver to use as a lever, but there is not much room in there to do the compression. try and be careful not to mark/nick up the disk as this will/can cause pre-mature pad wear. if both sides are locked up -- just repeat the same step on both sides. after things get freed up it will be important to figure out why so much pressure is building up in the brake lines,, you might try and flush brand new fluid all the way through the lines and see if that fixes the problem.

Wher is the thermosat in 2005 GMC canyon pickup

Follow the lot hose to the drivers side of the engine. The thermostat is the part the hose is attached that is bolted to the engine block. You will get the thermostat housing assembly when you purchase the new one. Removing the drivers front wheel inner liner will help make the repair easier.
