Calipers not retracting
Calipers not retracting when brake pedal released, have cleaned exposed area of caliper pistons but did not dismantle anything. Bled at combination valve and master cylinder but probem persists.
Do not believe this model is 4-wheel ABS.

    Several possibilities; faulty brake caliper (replace the caliper), dirty / contaminated brake fluid (replace / exchange the brake fluid in the system). Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; or for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the brake caliper from around $47.00 for your vehicle.

    Easier to pin point if you tell a little more . Is it one caliper doing it or just the front or just the back or all 4 ?
