Engine Will Not Start - E-Brake Problem?

I recently purchased a 2000 Dodge Intrepid in very good condition.  After having it for about two weeks, I went to start the car and it failed.  The battery was working just fine, and you could hear the fuel injector buzzing.  However,despite this the engine would not turn over.
The following day, the car worked just fine, with no problems relating to the engine or otherwise potentially related.  Since then, this has happened twice, each time the car starting and running just fine after about 24-48 hours of letting it sit after discovering it would not start.
We believe it has something to do with an Anti-Theft feature that we may not know about or some programming related to trying to start the car with the emergency brake engaged.  
Any ideas?

Before getting into a bunch of electronic nightmares, remove and clean both battery terminals & cable ends. (use a small knife & or rough sandpaper. Additionally, make sure the other ends of cables are clean and tight at their connections. nothing in your electrical system will function properly without a good connection at the battery.

With all these codes present , without looking under the hood , I would think you have a wiring harness problem ! I have seen critters make nests in the engine compartment , they like to chew wiring ! Have seen air filter boxes full of dog food . Good luck your going to need it !

2000 dodge intrepid stalls out while driving and sitting in red light why


Dodge 2000 Intrepid stalling on Traffic Light - This is caused by either wrong amount of Fuel or Air mixing in Idle condition. Please check fuel pressure at Idle which should be at least 38 psi and should go up when you press the accelerator. If fuel pressure is okay then Clean out the Throttle body carefully. This should solve the problem if no Check engine light is on. If Check engine light is on then please confirm and give me the codes present in On Board Diagnostic port (Auto Zone or Advance Auto will read the codes free for you) and we will go from there.

Brake lights will not go off in dodge intrepid


It seems like you may have a bad Brake Light Switch, which is located on your Brake Pedal. The switch is activated when you step on the brakes it sends a signal to the Brake Lights to turn the lights on when the pedal is depressed, if it is defective it may be keeping the Brake Lights on. You can purchase on and replace it yourself, it is not very difficult.
