Question about 2006 Chrysler Pacifica
When i break i feel the pedal stock hard and doesn't stop so it could be the front sensors
I don't think hard brakeing is affected by the ABS system. ABS only kicks in during a panic stop. Hard brakeing could be caused by many things, but the system is really pretty simple. I would check the pads (or shoes) first to make sure there is adequate material for the brakes to work properly and there is no contamination of the rotors or drums. If those look good, it is probably a problem with the master cylinder. Brake jobs are not fun, but well within the scope of a weekend mechanic. A master cylinder is on the border of what you should tackle. Remember, these things stop your 2 ton car for you, you need for them to work properly.
Try your library for a repair manual on your Pacifica, and look into the brake section for more info & troubleshooting ideas. Libraries used to have a large section of auto repair manuals, they were in great demand at one time. If you come up short at the library, try the internet. You could always try to buy a manual from Amazon too.

you need to check for voltage to sensor from module or a broken wire,also with a multi meter check for resistance from sensor from turning wheel

Hello, First, you have to clear some of the Codes with a scanner or wait after 25-35 start-ups for the information to cycle out of the system.
Next, make sure you have replaced the correct Bank or lower or upper sensor when there can be 4 sensors on the exhaust.
The wiring running to your sensors may be bad. Also, if anyone has fooled with the wiring to the sensors, some have cooling tubes which are embedded in the wiring. Sometimes people rewire the connectors to fit different O2 sensor plug-ins and the cooling tube is cut. When these plug-ins are manipulated this way the sensors overheat.
I can't say offhand about how your PT cruiser has its wires configured into junction connectors. They may be replaceable junctions or may be moulded into the housing of the O2 control unit as 1 piece.
You will need to ask at an Autoparts store or go to a Salvage yard and try to find a harness you can use. It is not impossible that the sensors you purchased could be bad. You should be able to get some sort of continuity value from the prong connectors on the O2 sensors to see if you have a circuit in the part.
I hope my solution is helpful, perhaps a Chrysler mechanic will answer you.
