Hey folks, first time posting here and maybe it’s a common thing. I’ve searched google and YouTube for days, replaced parts, and done the troubleshooting I know to do. So here it is, bear in mind, im no auto mechanic. I’m a jet mechanic/toolmaker. Lol my front pass brake locked up Friday, and the abs/parking brake light has been on since the dealer I got the truck from replaced the parking brake cable. I don’t hear a roaring, so I don’t feel like it’s a hub, but I do have some bouncing on the front end which leads me to think it may be an axel, which I still have to get looked at. parking brake and abs lights come on after a few seconds of driving, I hear brakes grinding, and I just replaced both front rotors, pads, and passenger caliper and abs sensor after it locked up; since it melted the abs sensor cable. brakes are bled properly and working, but they aren’t fully releasing. I’ve checked fluid, it’s not overfilled. Driver hub was previously replaced but not passenger for some reason. I considered ordering a hub for the passenger side just for that. Rotors are 305mm and the pads I installed are ceramic from brake best. Yes, the rotors get hot after a short drive, like too hot to touch. I’d rather not have these things lock up on me again. The only thing left I know to check are the piston in the master cylinder, or the passenger hub. Any ideas? If I’ve missed good reference material or prior posts please feel free to comment with a link and a nice “check here dumbass.” Lol thanks in advance.
I have a 2002 s10 xtreme I bought about 4 months ago, so I decided to put new pads and rotors on the front. I changed the pads and rotors and everything was fine except squealing on the left side, the a few weeks later the left side started to lockup and skid when applying the brakes after the brakes got hot, so I changed the calipers, lines and hardware on both sides. The left side is still locking up and skidding. It only lock up for a second or too and release then do it again if I still have my foot on the brakes. When it cools off it don't drag but it does not take long for this to happen after I start driving like a few minutes. I changed the pads and rotor again, had my old rotor turned and put new pads on the left side and it seems to be worse, its still squeling and dragging before I press the brakes to hard, it almost seem like it starts to pull the brake paddle a little. It my wits end been working on this for a month HELP
