Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. you have an abs fault which also causes the trac light and brake light tio sometimes come on. the only way to find out what the abs fault is to have the abs module scanned for fault codes. a generic codes reader will not read abs codes. you need to find a shop that has a scan tool that reads the abs module. it probably a wheel speed sensor but you need to know which one

Thank you, ***** ***** that may be the case,but we thought that we would check and see if this was a common issue with these cars. We've had some electrical issues, had the alternator replaced, now the fan for ac only works on high, the back window has separated from the convertable top, and have a wet floorboard, on passenger side front. We bought the car last year, because it was such low mileage (73,000) thinking that we wouldn't have so many issues with it, man, were we wrong!

I totally understand. My number advice to all of my customers: never buy a chrysler product.

for the fan only working on high, replace the blower motor resistor module
