When there's frozen water inside the cable, none of those will do the trick. The question was how to get the moisture out, and what to lube with that won't freeze, like wd40, pb blaster, or kroil. The cables weren't rusty, or broke or any of that, they were frozen with water trapped inside. Those would be fine in the summer, and then the following winter, after the lube had evaporated. But in the winter, the lube freezes.
