If it was sensor.both side,s would do it,not just one,check the line,undoit from caliper,have some one mash brake,should see a lot of fluid come out,if not i think the line is bad,

T_S_T is right. Check those things and also did you lube the caliper pins and slides? It could also be the proportioning valve?
