My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
From what you have described here this can be an issue with the brake calipers themselves keeping pressure on the brakes or an issue with the brake master cylinder as I have seen this fail before and apply pressure to the brake calipers when it isn't wanted.I don't have the exact info on how the calipers are removed on this model but usually they are held on with bolts to the hub assembly or axle assembly.
I would have the master cylinder and brake calipers checked to see if one is at fault needing replaced.
Thanks Pete
