We purchased a Chrysler 300C on 9/05/2006. On 9/6/06 I accidentally touched the parking brake & the light came on. I checked my manual & attempted to release the brake by pressing down as hard as I could, then pulling the brake release. The light remained on. According to the manual, this indicated a brake problem so I contacted the dealership. On 9/8/06 I took it in to the service dept.who said to press all the way to the floor, release the brake & lightly lift up on the foot brake. On 9/10/06 I again touched the brake causing the light to come on.on 9/11/06 I took it in to the service dept. & spoke to them & the general manager. Both gentlemen agreed it should be corrected, but they are not able to fix a manufacturing defect. So I called the Chrysler Corp. Customer center. The man told me it is not a defect just because I am not able to press the pedal all the way to the floor any more than it is a defect if I am unable to open a door! I am not a 100 pound woman ! I tried with both feet, got out & tried with my hand. He told me if the light remains on & something happens to the brakes that I am unaware of and causes an accident, that I will be responsible. This is not acceptable.
