93 Buick LeSabre brake not releasing

I have a 93 Buick Lesabre Limited which has been working fine for about two years with the ABS light is on. Now recently after i replaced my brake pads and rotors, my front left brakes are not releasing from the
rotors. I believe its just the left side because when I stop and get out, only the left brakes are very hot, much hotter than the right side. Also there is a weird burning smell coming from the left front brakes. Does any one have any suggestions.

Yup, and /or frozen slides or bad brake hose.

I second that - I haven't seen the "check valve hose" effect myself but I come across a lot of reports. I had a Volvo eat a pair of pads in less than a month because I neglected to lubricate the slides. Oops....

probably caliper, slide pins, maybe...........could be ABS module keeping pressure on line. probably not, but easy to check first. open bleeder on L/F brake and see if it has pressure with foot OFF brake pedal......probably caliper as mentioned by another post.

flexible fluid hose--check for a kinked hose! If found, unwind the caliper and hose. s

I will check all of your suggestions tomorrow morning, I have just noticed today the the screech pad for my F/L brake pad is already in contact with the rotor when I just replaced the pads about three weeks ago. Also is there a way to get the ABS codes from the ECM? I unfortunetly bought a code scanner (CP9001 by Actron) for this car and then a day later found out that its a 25 dollar jumper for the A to M contacts on the ALDL. But, the book that comes with the scanner does not list my car being capable to display flash codes for the ABS.

bad brake hose. rubber gets bad by time and it doesnot let fluid pass through.

Well the brake line to the F/L caliper was fine, not twisted. I took the caliper off and greased the boots and so far the F/L brake has been working fine. Any knowledge about the ABS system?
