Hot spot,grease or rotor warp in this case you will need it checked.This model was good for the rear brake pads rusting and binding as if the caliper was stuck on and not releasing,mistakenly diagnosed as a caliper problem but in fact is the rust build up under the pad clips pushing up on the pad making it bind. Look through the wheel opening with a light to see if the rotors are a blueish color this indicates hard use or heat build up that will warp the rotor causing your pulsate or shake when brakes applied.

This could be bad rotors or bad bearings. Check to see what a brake shop would charge you to get them done. Then go to an autoparts store and see what new rotors cost. They are easy to change and you can then decide. If you want to know if the rotors are WARPED, you use a dial indicator to check them.

SOURCE: 2006 town and country rear brake rotor removal

yes the e brake shoes inside the rotor tend to create a lip that will hang them up just bake them off a bit and you should be able to pull them off fairly easily also check to be sure that the stock assembly line retainer clips have been removed from the front of the rotor they are just thin looking washers that are pushed on to the lug nut studs to hold the rotor in place on the assembly line a pair of side head cutters work well to remove them and discard after removed.
Hope this helps.

Only the front brakes on my 2008 town and country appear to be applying


Have the proportioning valve checked on it. This valve reduces braking power to the rear brakes under hard braking to keep the rear brakes from locking up due to less weight on rear wheels. When malfunctioning it can cause the rears to not apply at all.

Why is brake and ABS light on in town & country 2008


Highly likely that your vehicle may not stop next time you press on the brake pedal. Either the master cylinder is failing, the ABS module is failing, your brake servo is failing, or you have lost a significant amount of brake fluid due to a leak. IT IS URGENT THAT YOU GET THE VEHICLE TO A REPAIR SHOP IMMEDIATELY TO HAVE IT LOOKED AT. IT IS DANGEROUS TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE IT WHEN THOSE LIGHTS ARE ILLUMINATED SIMULTANEOUSLY.

I have a 2008 chrysler town and country van. It has a warning light with a ! in the middle. In the upper left corner. What does that mean? Thanks, Brandi


that sholud be a brake light due to a parking brake engaged or not fully released it can also com on if there is a abs malfuntion or brake fluid is low. You need to get your brakes checked. If fluid is not low brakes are good and parking brake is not on you may need a brake switch.
