Seems that to resolve a problem you had created another.
When reinstaling the brake switch, the free travel between the pedal and push rod had been misadjusted resulting in the push rod pushing against the booster and this would result in partial application of the brakes at all times. When driving, the brake fluid would heat up resulting in the seizing of the brakes.
If the brake pedal switch is adjustable and has a lock nut, loosen the locknut, disconnect the wire socket. Loosen the brake switch till it is not touching the stopper on the pedal. ( Ensure stopper is in good condition). Slowly turn in till the switch central pin is almost fully depressed. Retighten the lock nut and test free travel. There should be a little clearance ( 3 to 8mm) before the pedal pushes the push rod forward.
If the brake switch is non adjustable, you need to loosen the locknut on the push rod and turn the rod anti clockwise (looking from pedal side) to get the desired free travel.
