Most likely no, you could have a bad caliper, collapsed brake hose, too much moisture in the brake fluid causing steam in the caliper locking it up, a pad worn out and binding in the slide. Just a few things to consider.

You are going to have to flush the entire brake system, double check the brake hoses as they do collapse internally.

Plus replacing the sensor wiring.
