Just as an aside, I don't mean using the brake line to hold the caliper. That would not be smart. I just meant that the caliper would have to be held by something (bungy cord).

you can buy an inexpensive OBDII scanner for $50 or so. These will also allow you to erase the codes to see if the problem is re-occuring.
