Chrysler Mechanic: Joshua Haynes,

You and I will get connected by a third party...the system is saying that there was a payment failure so you may have entered your card information incorrectly

Ok that's not working. So we will just stick with this. Have you heard of this issue before?

Is the parking brake actually stuck and applied, or is the light simply on but the car will move freely?

I'm sorry, I can't call without the system connecting it, it's against the rules

If you go under the shifter housing, in the storage area that is open to both sides near the floor board, there is an access cover. It can be popped out with a key or a screw driver very easily. There is a lever with a red pull tab on it, and it will disengage the parking brake

Chrysler Mechanic: Joshua Haynes,

There will be further diagnostics that need to be done if the parking brake sticks again, but you will be able to get it out of the parking mode using the lever until you can take it to a shop. Good luck and don't forget to leave me a positive rating!

I tried that... all it did was put the car in neutral and did not disengage the parking brake.
Chrysler Mechanic: Joshua Haynes,

Is there any thing else that you tried?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No just that.
Chrysler Mechanic: Joshua Haynes,
 replied 11 months ago

Have you checked to make sure that all of your doors and the trunk are completely closed? This can stop the parking brake from disengaging if one is open

Nothing changes when you push the parking brake button, correct?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No it just continues to flash
Chrysler Mechanic: Joshua Haynes,
 replied 11 months ago

oh, I didn't realize that it was flashing. Ok, you have a code in the body control module that is not allowing it to disengage. I assume that you don't have a way to read the code so I will have you clear it out by raising the hood and disconnecting the battery for approximately one minute and then reconnecting. You only need to remove one battery cable from the battery, not both.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Should that solve the issue?
Chrysler Mechanic: Joshua Haynes,
 replied 11 months ago

If there is an underlying concern, it may happen again. This will only reset it for the time being, but ultimately if the problem reoccurs you will need to have the codes read so that the problem can be identified. This vehicle (as I am sure you already know) is heavily controlled by electronic modules (computers) and it is almost impossible to know the area from which a problem is generated without being able to scan for the codes.

Chrysler Mechanic: Joshua Haynes,

However, if there was simply a set of conditions that were met that put it into a "lock" mode, and those conditions are not reproduced again, it may not be that there is an actual problem, it could have been a "fluke"

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
