    you may have some brake fluid on the friction surface of the pads or a caliper issue after pushing back the piston or an internal brake hose problem, which you cannot see.

    just had disk re-surface today saturday, no brake fuild of any other type of fuild on disk. I am assuming at this point caliber piston is malfuctioning in some way. next process I will do is to do a bleeding of brake system in front to check for any restriction on this - unless I am not seeing something that will jump out at me, I will assume a enity has taken over the brake system some how.
