Because when your moving, air is moving at the radiator, cooling it down, thus cooling your coolant down, thus cooling your motor temperature down causing the coolant temperature sensor to pick up a lower reading and relaying it to the gauge. Depending on how high it is in "Park" you may have poor circulation, a broken or missing fan shroud, weak water pump impellers, low coolant, inactive coolant fans or a bad fan clutch.

How do you fix a stuck rear passenger parking brake on a 2000 Plymouth voyager?

Sadly, I'm answering my own question. What I did was cut the cable 6" from the brake drum. Important note: the parking brake cable NOT the brake line. After I cut the cable I removed the 6" section of cable and the spring from inside the drum, then sprayed a liberal amount of PB Blaster which allowed the brake to release. Now my P.O.S. drives again. For now....
