Question about 2002 Ford Explorer
The parking brake on my 2002 Ford Explorer does not release all the way. It appears to be releasing just a bit when I pull the release handle. The pedal does not come up with much force. Also, even though the brake shoes are brand new, they do not stop the car from moving when the brake pedal is fully pressed. Help???

SOURCE: I have a 2002 Ford
The Mustang driver has the answer to the problem. There is a switch on the brake pedal, which must be engaged before the shifter will move out of Park.

Very common problem do loads. You need to lubricate the handbrake linkage under the rear seats ( the bit ur bum goes on). If you have a estate car then the seats will flip up but if its a saloon car then you will have to remove 2 13mm nuts for either side seat. When ur under there, u will see a little black panel in the middle, remove it 2 8mm self tappers and a 13mm nut. right you should now see the linkage where the cable splits to either side of the car. Get a load of wd-40 and spray whilst some else operates the handbrake 100 times or so. sorted! Dont forget to adjust the handbrake at the wheels after, go all the way with the adjust and back off two clicks either side.
Hope this works and good luck1

since the new pads are alot thicker than the old ones,the brake needs to be set properly.
something is not right for sure.
the retainer for the park brake cable may be not in the right spot.there is two places it can fit.

The disc brake pads are NOT used for the parking brake. The parking brake uses mini-drum type shoes inside the rear disc rotor.

handbrake jammed on somewhere ,could be front cable ,because the rear cable is pulled by the compensator so if it was the rear one then i would expect only one cable siezed and that is normally the kerbside one.
