You have a broken diaphram in your power brake booster (the large flat canister under the hood in front of the driver seat). It is usually the problem as when you apply the brakes, the engine vacuum would be exposed to the atmosphere. To verify my solution, remove and plug the vacuum hose from the master cylinder and then start the engine then use the brakes. It shouldn't die. Good Luck!

If it is parked facing down a grade, such as a driveway, you have to mash ******* the foot brake with the engine running to yank the selector out of park

The selector and the foot brake are interlocked to prevent putting the Chrysler in drive without a foot on the brake

My 1999 Chevy Lumina shuts down while driving and will not start immediately. It may start after a while but will shut down again. When parked, it starts and idles for a while and may or may not shut, but...

it sounds like your ignition module is failing, when the car dies, take off one spark plug wire from the coil and crank the key, see if there is spark. one other issue may be the crank position sensor which can also stop the module from firing a spark
