A fifth drum brake assembly was added to the car, placed on the driveshaft. This was the emergency brake, so the car no longer relied on the rear brake assemblies if there was a brake failure. This invention was by a person not working for Chrysler, and was the result of a contest to identify a new safety feature. This 5th brake was added to other Chrysler cars as well, but did not survive for long and it was abandoned by 1963.
on the brake pedal bracket there is an acuator it may be adjustable or you may need to replace it
Lift the vehicle on a jack, remove the tire and put it aside, remove the brake shoe/caliper, and remove and dispose of the old brake pad. Put in a new brake pad, replace the brake shoe/caliper, replace the tire, tighten the nuts, and lower the vehicle to the ground.
More than likely the ratchet mechanism that causes the brake pedal to lock down is broken, perhaps due to a broken or disconnected spring. The "weird sound" could be the remainder of the mechanism brushing against the teeth where it would normally lock.
Bulb is probably defective. Replace it.

Lift the car, remove the tire, remove the brake shoe/calipers and remove the old brake pad. Put in the new brake pad, put the brake shoe/caliper back, put the tire back on the car, and lower the car to the ground.
I believe the brake light switch is at the base of the brake pedal. However, it takes a special tool usually to remove and replace it. It is a cheap part, easy labor, and worth the payment to a professional if they will do it for under $20.00 or so. You can strand yourself if you can't get the replacement on correctly. Mary
Brake calibers can be rebuilt, but my advice is to just replace it with a new one. Be aware that if one is sticking then more than likely your brake fluid has become contaminate with moisture. I would replace both calibers and not just one. Remove all the old brake fluid and install fresh fluid from an unopened can.
Brake light, on your 2000 Chrysler Concorde, by accessing it from the inside of the trunk. Take hold of the brake light, push in and turn. The brake light will come out.
