I would recommend that you either rebuild the caliper, or replace it. It sounds like you have some bad seals.

I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox LS and the drivers side front brakes keep locking up. Can I get some help with this problem. None of the lights come on when this happens.

Most likely the brake hose to the caliper is bad. They deteriorate from the inside and clog up, not releasing the fluid. A way to check is raise that tire pump up the brakes, release the hose at the caliper, if the caliper releases, the hose is bad, if it doesn't the caliper is bad or you have no brake pads left and the piston can/is cocked a bit.

What would cause there to be no brakes what so ever even after replacing all the broken brake lines and bleeding them all on a 2003 Hyundai elantra?

if this has anti-lock brakes it may be the HCU(hydraulic control unit) may have air in it. it may have to be activated to get all the air out.

Rear passenger brake dosen't work

Are there two brake fluid reservoirs? And are both full? This would be a split-diagonal brake system-front driver and rear passenger are one brake system. Front passenger and rear driver are the other system. You have the one system working-the front passenger and rear driver side works. You will have to keep bleeding the rear passenger side and the front driver side-always start farthest from the master cylinder, but if that wheel just won't bleed air out, make sure the driver front is working and bleeds good. If all else fails, there are pressure bleeder kits available, I don't know the cost, but they work great. They are also a one man bleeding job, as I understand.

I have a 1995 Toyota Hilux 4x4, 2.8 Deisel. Braking problem.. Bleeding my brakes, there is no pressure coming out of the front calipers. Bled from furthest wheel, to closest and the two front calipers...

Master cylinder could be bad there's also a possibility that the valve that allows the separate front to rear fluid pressures is not working properly disconnect the line going to the front brakes at the caliper then have someone lightly push down and see if fluid comes out that way sounds like it could be a bad Master but it's not always the problem

Driver side front brake keeps locking up we have changed the Caliper rotor and pads 3 times now, what do I look at next

Your MOST LIKELY problem is a defective brake hose. The hoses are made up of several layers. There is a rubber outer shell and a steel or kevlar reinforcement and a silicone-based inner lining that will resist the brake fluid and prevent the brake fluid from eating the other layers. What happens is that the inner lining tears loose inside and acts like a "heart valve" The liner will expand when dthe pedal is applied and allow fluid to be pushed into the caliper under pressure. However, when the brake pedal is released, the hose collapses and prevents the fluid from returning to the master cylinder.

The way to diagnose this condition is like this:

Raise and support the vehicle and remove the tire on the side that keeps destroying brake pads.
start the engine and press ******* the brake pedal and then release the brake pedal.
Turn the engine off and check to see if the caliper has the wheel locked up.
If it does, then open the bleeder screw on the caliper. The fluid should squirt out under pressure and the caliper will release the wheel. If it does, replace the hose.

I have a 1999 chevy k3500. the front drivers side break caliper locked on the rotor as if im stepping on the breaks. i have replacer the caliper with a Napa rebuilt one, and replaced thr ABS system with...

You might have a collapsed brake hose going to that side. It will be the rubber line from the caliper to the frame. You cant tell by looking at it but the inside of it might have collapsed not allowing the fluid to flow back, and only allowing it in. Ive seen this happen before.

No fluid come out when bleeding brakes drivers side front

Brake rubber flex line could be collapsed,,or kinked,,,i suggest loosening of the line at the master cylinder distribution block (this will give you the ability of loosening off one line at a time,,and have some one push the brake pedal down,,if you see fluid at this point then you know it has to be the line or the caliper.
if you get no pressure from the distribution block then its the master cylinders fault
