Weak cables or out of adjustment.

My 95 acts like the cables are broke. It doesn't work at all...

It's a mustang thing guys. I've driven about 5 different mustangs and none of the e brakes grab super tight. I have friends with mustangs too and they say the same thing. Lol

When I got my car I had the rest calipers and cables replaced and even with all new parts mine is weak. Keeps the car from rolling but that is about all it's good for.

Hmmm idk. I tried to adjust mine in my auto shop class and even my teacher wasn't able to make it tight. I guess it's just the way it is. Lol

Call around to some of these aftermarket brake companies and see if they sell a upgrade kit for your year stang, id get ahold of wilwood or baer and see what they have, you want a piston type brake not a screw in type.
