I've experienced this bizarre phenomenon several times over the 81K of mileage in our 2005 T&C - it's not electrical at all; it's something in the footboard where the pedal passes through the floor. It literally seems to BIND the darned pedal in such a way 500 lbs. Of force won't get it to depress. Freaky, scary too.
All I do is jiggle the pedal with my foot - side to side a bit - and it seems to do the trick. Always has worked for me. No expensive price tag fix, just a "jiggle the handle" kind of fix.
