Default Hot rotor?

Replaced the passenger side, rear, caliper, rotor and pads and now it is VERY hot after even a short drive. No warning lights. I am worried that maybe the EPB is not disengaging. Can these get out of sequence?

Appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks.

did you bleed the system? It sounds like your caliper is pushing the pad against the rotor

Well obviously the caliper is pushing against the pad if its getting hot. did you not place the spring clip properly? or is the ebrake cable not adjusted properly?
