Has anyone got a clue to the front brakes overheating on a 2000 Mustang GT, ive replaced with brand new calipers, new hubs and bearings, new hoses, various new pads yet still overheats and feels like they very gently drag, nothing is seized as everything has been replaced, at a complete loss now.

Yes its got abs and traction control, have tried disconecting the abs and still the same, abs light does come on when they overheat, no codes or faults show up on code readers.

Maybe the wrong brake fluid was added at one time causing fluid pressure to be trapped in the brake lines causing brakes to drag. So is front and rear or just fronts ober heating?

Front brakes only, also had a full fluid change several times.
