2001 Toyota Avalon - Brake locks too easy

Left front brake locks up while driving with no pressure applied. replaced calipers and pads abs control, bleed the lines etc. still did it after this was done. burned up new pad on left front wheel second time. any help would be greatly appreciated

If you had this work done by a shop then contact them . If you did this work then have a dedicated brake shop see if they can solve the problem . With winter not the far away you don’t need a brake on one wheel locking up on slick streets.

Replace the left front brake hose, I think it has failed internally.
