well I would suspect a bad master cylinder on the dakota assuming there wasnt any leaks other than the master cylinder which may or may not so any signs of leaking or previous work done to the brake system that would allow air to be in the system.
on the horizon 1 and 4 would be possible but would also suspect frozen emergency brake cable, or leaking wheel cylinder.
I would assume the same on the mustang.

If the Dakota has abs the bpmv may be bad.The Horizon could have a bad rr brake hose.The Mustang may have budget pads and shoes installed.These are just to add to Bejay's list.

Well, on the Dakota
Air in the hydraulic system is possible but something else caused it. You have to find that.
By "brake wire" I assume you mean electrical-forget that
#3 and #5 seem to be the same thing
The basic fact is you either have a leak or a bad master cylinder

On the Horizon- all your choices are possible

On the Mustang
#1 is only possible if the caliper is contacting the rotor because it fell off.
#2 , #3 and #5. are NO
#4 is the most likely
