Front brakes lock up

My front brakes lock up and the pedal will not go down. The pads brun. I have replace rotor pads and calibers, but still have the same problem.

Stuck piston(s) maybe?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

ell, I had it happen to my 2000. A guy on here just had it happen to his second gen. What was happening in my case is that the brakes would start to gradually apply themselves until the front locked. I cant clearly remember (it was 8 years ago), but it might have been the brake booster. The guy on here that had the same thing happen said he took it to the dealer and thats what they told him.

My 2010 Sport was washed in the late afternoon to get the dust and mud from the body and the undercarriage. I also shot a stream of water at the inside of the wheels to get the dirt off the inner rims and front rotors. I drove it about 501 and parked it for the night. The next morning, I could spin the rear tires but the truck did not move in 2WD, 4H or 4L.
By the time the tow truck showed up that afternoon, I guess things had dried out. The dealer found nothing wrong and said they have a similar problem happen when they wash vehicles and leave them overnight.
