Your welcome. I don't want to see any one in any fix, if they in any way are not telling you or giving you advice, that helps you feel they care, keep on checking around. After Chrysler has been so down, they just closed and put many dealers on restriction. If all brakes are locking, your safety in a driving situation is a major concern to me. And I have been giving Chrysler everything I have since 1981. Now no one is happy with Chryslers service. Here in the east, they have closed 2 thirds of their dealerships, forcing all the experienced service people to seek work else where.
I know that its tough to find help. If I thought for one minute, that forcing the pads to unlock was all that was wrong, you would know. This is not because of a fluid issue. This is not a normal situation. If gassing it, locked up would help, you never would have wrote.
Your speaking with a person in service, but any technician knows, ABS is not prone to applying pressure. Any rust or dirt would free right up with horsepower applied. Keep calling around. A brake shop m, ay know more then a dealer whetre at one time, the brake shop brought their ABS work. Since I can't feel it, I would rather be safe than sorry. If ABS locked up constsntly, I would have seen 1 in all these years. I hope there is not a transmission problem, as it is difficult to tell the difference on the ground. It has to be off the wheels, where a determination is proved. Safety issue.
If you have no warning lamps on, and you are secure, try and free them up, I'm sure you have. If just rears, ok but all wheels, no. Its has its own diadnostics, computer, and many valves, fluid problems would cause insufficient braking. You spoke with someone who is un aware of how it operates.
