It sounds like your calipers are wasted. I had the same problem with my 91 amigo I end up getting new calipers . check your e brake cable to make sure it's not sticking ,which causes the brake to be on 24/7 . oops dead caliper!

Some Isuzu caliper pistons need a special tool (http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/Product/tf-Browse/s-10101/Pr-p_Product.CATENTRY_ID:2004106/showCustom-0/p-2004106/N-111+10714+600009601/c-10614) to compress them.
