Having an issue with my front driver's side brake caliper not releasing after driving and braking for a few miles. This started after having to make a quick stop on the interstate to avoid hitting a car. After that quick jab on the brakes, it locked up. Since then we have replaced caliper, pads, brake line, rotor checked and also a brake flush. Honda service dept says they can not find anything wrong. After leaving the service center, we drove about 5 miles and it did it again. Also check engine light came on, threw codes for the catalytic converter and also ABS code 61-1, 68-1 and 121-1. Needing answers since Honda service center claims there's nothing they can find.

Since the caliper is not releasing my focus would be with the caliper...seen some defective or mismatched remanufactured calipers / caliper bracket, caliper lube, contaminated fluid or an installation issue

If you are getting codes for the antilock system there may be a problem there. Also the pins on the calliper could be rusted and holding the brakes on. Ask around and find a good brake specialist in your area. Many good mechanics are leaving dealerships because the pay is just too low. Let us know what you find.

It drove fine after disconnecting the battery cable and reconnecting it until yesterday. We replace rotor and still doing it. Overheating and smoking.
