Re: fitted new rear caliper

Hmm I dont believe that it has anything to do with what you did. What kind of car is it? Does the wheel actually lock up when the brake is off?

Re: fitted new rear caliper

How is your brake fluid level? The brake light serves 2 functions in vehicles. One is to indicate the park brake is engaged. The second is to monitor the brake hydraulic system. It does that one of 2 ways, either by monitoring the pressure with a switch, and/or the level in the master cylinder resevoir. Make sure you are full up on fluid and the brakes are bled.
