Sounds like your front brake discs are faulty, causing the oscillation.
They require, if possible? skimming, or renewal, along with the brake pads.
You describe the classic symptoms of this fault.
Good Luck !

My Chrysler pacifica 2004 vibrate , shakes the steering wheel and brakes shakes when I. Push down on brakes after slowing down car . What is this problem?

If you are getting shaking when you brake then I would get your brakes checked. You may have a warped rotor or possible one brake pad that is worn unevenly or even broken. It is also possible that you have a caliper that is binding.

Why does it shake whenever i let off the gas and shakes real bad when i apply my brakes

If when applying the brakes the steering wheel shakes then your front rotors are warped and at the least need resurfaced and most likely the brake pads replaced. But more likely the rotors are too thin which has allowed them to overheat and warp which causes the shaking. In this case new rotors and pads are in order. If when braking tou feel the shaking in the seat of your pants then most likely the rear brakes are the issue. Same problem as the front, warpage, but your rear brakes are most likely drums. Again, possible resurfacing and new shoes; but more likely new drums and brake shoes.

But I wonder? Did this vibrating just start all of a sudden or maybe after a near accident requiring you to brake very heavily and possibly overheat the brakes. Or my main concern, to keep this from happening again, after pulling some type of trailer that you intend on pulling again. Pulling a trailer without its own brakes puts a much heavier load on your trucks brakes and just repairing them won't keep it from happening again if you ARE pulling a trailer. Higher quality rotors/pads/drums/ and brake shoes can help but if the trailer is too heavy for the truck nothing but installing brakes on the trailer or a lighter trailer will stop you from warping them again.

Lastly, in general when you let off the gas and the whole vehicle shakes the driveshaft/u-joints are common causes. Same with the steering wheel if it shakes when letting off the gas, but only on a 4x4 or AWD vehicle. So check your driveshafts and u-joints and make sure they are tight. But unless you find something obvious there I would wait until you have the brakes sorted out and see if that doesn't stop all the shaking.

Good luck!

Car started to shake, engine light went on

If the engine still runs this could be a broken engine mount. Easiest to check and fix. However it may be more serious internal engine damage. Sorry...

Steering shakes at low and high speeds and pulls to the right

If it only does it when you are using the brakes, I would check the brakes on both sides.
If it does it without using the brakes, I would look for a bad tire on the front. One of the tires could have a broken belt inside the tread.
Could also be a bad wheel bearing on the front.

Sebring 2007 shakes on uphill and reverse

Sounds like a Transmission Torque Converter Clutch
Try driving uphill with 1 foot on gas then tap the brakes at same time with other foot..
IF Engine does NOT rev up, the clutch is bad.

Sebring 06 had a shake when i pushed on the brakes . i put new rotors on an still have the shake help ..

use e-brake first and block wheels. raise vehicule of the ground. with an assistant, turn the steering wheel from one side to another half a turn quickly while one is looking at steering components like tie-rod ends. look for loose parts. look on both sides. it might also be the ball joints. lower the car enough to have the tires touching the ground enough and also give a good look at it. turn steering wheel again like before and watch for uneven movement. whichever looks abnormal will need to be changed on both sides

Brakesa are jumping when brakes are applied

i do believe you mean the service brakes, and when pushing the brake pedal the truck shakes?

Pad transfer will cause uneven brake discs with humps on em. Every time you then step on the brake pedal you'll feel the pads going over the humps, causing the shakes.

The best way to get rid of this is to replace the disc brakes with new discs.
Remember to change the pads too.
