Where are you seeing this pink wire ? I'm looking at a wiring diagram and I see a pink wire at the (RIM) rear integration module . It goes to the park brake relay A ,control side . The RIM supply's a ground on that circuit energizing the park brake relay A . There is another park brake relay - B . Are you familiar with the RIM module .
The park brake system is a mechanical and electrical system which operates on the rear disc brakes. The system is activated by depressing a foot pedal lever assembly, which sets the rear brake caliper via cables. The park brake is released by shifting the vehicle out of park or activating the manual release.
Park Brake Release
The rear integration module (RIM) controls the operation of the electric release park brake. The RIM uses serial data messages to determine if the correct conditions exist to release the park brake. The park brake is released under the following conditions:
• The engine is ON.
• The gear shift lever is not in Park or Neutral.
• The park brake switch is closed.
When all of the above conditions exist, the RIM releases the park brake by simultaneously activating the 2 park brake solenoids. After 2 seconds, the RIM deactivates solenoid A. The RIM continues to activate solenoid B while the above conditions exist, which prevents the park brake from being set.

How To Install Repair Replace Parking Brake Release CableHandle ... or replace a broken or worn out parking brake release cable handle.
What kind of chrysler? It should release with the brake release handle. Is it a floor mount park brake or a console mounted park brake.Is the brake released with the handle but seems like it is still on/
Moving the shift lever from park should release the parking brake.
If it fails to then there is a very small lever under the dash near the parking brake pedal and hood release that should also release it.
There should be a manual release. Reach up along the parking brake pedal. Ford has a manual lever that you pull toward yourself to release the parking brake. Hope this helps our with your problem. Best of luck. Greg

The automatic (vacuum) release-type is standard equipment on all vehicles.
The automatic vacuum-type parking brake system contains the following features:
A parking brake release control motor (2A843) with mounting bracket bolted to the parking brake control .
The vacuum-actuated diaphragm within the parking brake release control motor which is connected by a rod to the upper end of the parking brake release vacuum hose (2B653) .
The parking brake release vacuum hose which connects the parking brake release control motor to the engine manifold through a vacuum release switch at the steering column tube (3514) .
The parking brake release control motor which is actuated to release the parking brake whenever the engine is running and the transmission is in a forward-driving gear.
The automatic parking brake control which has a manual release feature that releases the foot parking brake control by applying force to the parking brake control pedal in the "apply" direction to the point of initial application.
The parking brake control will return to the full-release position after removing the force.
adjust the park brake cable first (3 pedal clicks and brake should start to engage the rear wheels) then lube the park brake ratchet release parts (under the dash) with WD40, this should take care of the problem.
