Try bleeding the brake system .. It sounds like one or more of your calipers are locked up... Open all the bleeders an see if the fluid starts to drip constantly by itself.. Do Not Press The Break Pedal while all the bleeders are open.. If you do, you will have a lot of air get inside the brake system, an then you will have to bleed the entire system.... Also if you changed your brake pads, or shoes recently, make sure they are the correct ones.. Sometimes they look the same, but they maybe a little to thick... An if you do have rear shoes, make sure they are adjusted correctly.. If they are too tight, you will have a hard pedal... And last but least, make sure your Brake Booster is good.. If you press the brake pedal, an you hear a little air hiss from it, an then the pedal gets hard, then it's probably your brake booster.. I hope this info help... Good Luck

I replaced the calipers on 2001 mustang GT I'm having trouble getting the brakes to adjust I've bleed the rear, and the front but the front pads won't adjust

The front brakes calipers do not adjust. If they are locking down all the way,and will not release the brake caliper hoses are at fault,replace them. If they are not moving in to brake the wheel then bleed the master cylinder and then the brake calipers.

Gearshift sticks in park 2004 gt mustang 40th annv

Sounds like the interlock is out of adjustment. There is a switch on the brake pedal lever which sends a signal to release the shifter by reading the brake light signal. Often this switch gets hit by the Drivers feet and has either moved or broken. Your shifter will act up if the Ignition switch rod has slipped out of adjustment or if the ignition switch has slipped on its mount on the steering column.

99 mustang wont start when I press the brake pedal but if I just pull e-brake it will start. Have new battery. Also dome light goes dim when I press brake pedal.

You have a short in the brake system wires. Id start disconnecting everything one at a time until the dimming goes away. Then that component will be your issue. Whether it has failed or the wires going to it are shorted will depend on diagnostics and what it shows.

Got few problems arising in my Mustang GT 2008: 1)

1. Brake booster diaphragm may be torn.

3. Likely lifter noise. Change to better oil and oil filter.
4. Hood stops need adjusting.

You need a mechanic.

2000 Mustang GT No brake lights. fuse good, switch good, bulbs good. What else should be checked?

If all those were good, they would work. Check fuses 33 and 41. You need to verfy if voltage is at the switch and going through the switch while pressing the brake pedal.

Bleed the brake lines

start at the passenger rear tire, have someone PUMP up brakes and hold pressure on them, release pressure by locating small bleeder screw, loosen screw 1/4 turn, brake fluid/air should come out, after brake petal reaches floor tighten bleeder, repeat process until only brake fluid comes out. go to driver side rear repeat, go to pass. side front repeat, go to driver side front repeat, after each bleeding make sure you check brake fluid in reservoir.
