A common problem with Chrysler products is the Idle speed control motor failing. Chrysler calls this an air idle solenoid or AIS. You can purchase one for your vehicle at your local parts store for around 50 dollars. It is held in place by 2 t-25 torx screws.

Did you check the brake fluid level? You may have either a bad ring gear which the sensor picks up the signal from - or a bad sensor for the ABS - I'd pull each wheel and inspect for missing teeth on the gear the sensor reads off off - and look for bad wires on a sensor - perhaps one is not gapped right.

Seek service manual for propper gapping on the sensor to the ring gear. Worst case scenario - ABS accumulator/pump could be faulty. Be advised that whils this ABS light is alluminated - the ABS is not activated - you are on BASE brakes only and most likely your traction control (ESP or TCS) is disabled as well.

I highly doubt it's going to be anthing more then a wheel speed sensor or indicator (ring gear). Disconnect your cables battery to reset the ECU for 5 minutes, then plug it back in, that'll clear whatever codes you have, if the error returns... then you should really look into it.

Hope this helps.

it sounds like you have a vacuum leak on the brake servo system.
check the pipe between the inlet manifold and the brake servo unit is secure, and not damaged.
as it only happens when you press the brakes, it is far more likely that you have a faulty diaphram in the servo unit itself. the brake pedal can also feel unusually heavy with this type of fault.

hope this helps

That could be either a choke problem or a low fuel flow situation. Will it stay running after it warms up? If so, choke problem.

it could be a fuel pump relay located on the drivers side inner fender,fuel pump(should hear the pump run while cranking)as there is a 2 second prime when the key is turned on.it could be the pickup coil in the distributer(didn`t say what motor is in this).the computer could be the problem also but not a common problem.these need to be checked out before replacing the computer.when the computer is replaced there is a number on a tag stuck to the computer that is the computer number to get the proper one.

Here the good thing and this it will make it easy, The reason for that jumping tach meter tells you that there is spark and no fuel. Without fuel the spark KV voltage is 30kv. and it report to the tach. So you got spark and no fuel. If you had fuel the tach will show during cranking little tiny,tiny movement that you wont even see. So do this turn the key in the run position cycle it do you hear a humming noise from the rear you should that is the pump, they are sort of loud, If you dont you'll need a fuel pump. Even if you heard the fuel pump the fuel delivery may be low of pressure to start the engine. by the way try this have some one crank it and you hit the bottom of the tank may be you can shock it back.

First reach under the dash and locate the cable where it connects to speedometer housing. Unscrew the cable and lubricate with cable grease. Under the vehicle you can disconnect the cable at the transmission and do the same thing. Make sure that the cable engages the speedometer and the speedo gear in the transmission. If still no go, then the cable may be broken or the gear (plastic) is stripped. New cable and gear would not be too expensive but I don't know what the labor cost would be. Figure on about $150.00 for parts & labor.

I assume you mean the brakes? Make sure your emergency brake is fully released. This is assuming your transmission is not locked up. Also you make sure you don't have a stuck brake pad or shoe. They can do that if improperly installed or severely worn. Hope this helps.
