Some 2005-2006 Mustangs built prior to 10/1/2005 may exhibit park brake cables that freeze in cold weather due to water intrusion, and subsequently not release. Under some conditions this could lead to dragging rear brakes. The rear sealing boot on the cable (located at the rear caliper attachment) could deteriorate prematurely which may permit water intrusion. In freezing temperatures this could bind the cable inside the casing, and not allow tension to be released from the caliper.
Inspect the park brake cable and system components. If the rubber sealing boots show signs of deterioration, replace both rear park brake cables.
Inspect the park brake cable rubber sealing boots for deterioration.
Rubber sealing boots show signs of deterioration, go to Step 2.
All other go to Workshop Manual for normal diagnostics.
Refer to Workshop Manual, Section 206-05 for park brake cable replacement.
