2010 Ford Ranger pickup recalled due to issue with parking brake cable

2010 Ford Ranger

Ford has issued a recall on certain 2010 Ranger pickups built from June 8, 2009 through February, 2, 2010 equipped with a manual transmission. The recall concerns an issue with the parking brake cable that can become disconnected from the right rear actuator during cold weather.

“This may occur when the parking brake is released if wet parking brake shoes have frozen in the applied position,” NHTSA said in a statement. “If the right rear parking brake cable becomes disconnected, the pedal will have extended travel and may not fully apply the brake.”

To fix the issue, dealers will install a revised right rear parking brake actuator to prevent cable disconnection. Owners can contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332 for more info.
