Over time the seals in the master cylinder begin to break down....

Best Answer Mark helpful

I thought of that, but I assumed that when the master cylinder went bad you would not have any brakes.

it can cause retention of pressure in brake lines, thus locking them up..

I believe it may be in the brake hoses going to the caliper. They will brake down internally and collapse.
