Look at the pistons in the caliper. If it is a cup type piston there could be several reasons for this, (requiring researching technical manuals). But if it is a solid piston with what appears to be 4 raised tabs around the piston in a + configuration this suggests that you may need to screw the piston back into the caliper turning it clockwise. Sometimes this takes quite a bit of turning. Otherwise the pistons are stuck, or you might need to open the bleed screws and compress the pistons as some vehicles have one-way pressure valves in the system. . To add a '96 cutlass caliper piston has to be screwed in clockwise with also applying steady pressure
