2004 Chrysler Pacifica Q&A
2004 Chrysler Pacifica Question: 2004 Pacifica will not start!!!
my wife drove our car the other day, and the next, it wouldnt start. all it did was click a couple of times and...nothing. i disconnected the battery to let it reset, and when i checked it again, the same thing happened. i tried to jump it with my car, but nothing. i checked the battery, and it seemed fine, i was looking for the starter switch, but cant find it, i was looking for the fuel filter, cant find it. i dont have a manual for this car so i dont know where anything is. what the heck is wrong with this car? can someone please help??? - devilhater
First thing is to make sure the battery is charged, A battery with one bad cell will turn on the lights but won't start the car, Same thing happened to my 67 gto I jumped it once then it died, So I went to Napa Auto parts and bought a new battery and now it starts every time, Start with a fresh battery then if it still dosn't crank its probably the starter. - hemicuda
to all pacifica owner's , I was having similar problem's started with the obvius battery, alternator starter etc. After everything checked-out fine my mechanic was giving up and getting ready to refer me to an auto electric specialist. Thank god for the computer age someone had offered their advise on this sight stating that after people with similar problems and thousands of dollars later that itwas a faulty ground from engine to the transmission. all my mechanic did was replace a 16.00 dollar ground wire from battery to exaughst manifold. My wifes car has been fine ever since!!!!!!!! - miyagi
Parts mechanics are funny. They always think that throwing batteries and starters and alternators will solve their laziness problem. You should have learned everything you needed to know to diagnose an automobile in high school physics. Don't just check the voltage of the battery just sitting there, check it with the key turned over (this is called "load") and always... always check your connections, the battery might say 650 amps but it won't push that through an inch of corrosion! A little bit of brain will save you a lot of dough! - Visitor

Who ever comes across this problem again. Get some jumper cables and connect the negative of one end to the negative on the battery, then connect the other negative end of the jumper cable directly to the the engine somewhere metal (there is a ground wire braid between engine and radiator fan. Your car will probably start now. If it does start there is a broken ground wire on the back of the transmission behind the left front tire, there is a big bolt that should have a terminal lug on it. This usually breaks if your upper motor mount is broken allowing the engine to rock back and forth. Sorry if this has been discussed already, just wanted to help someone with something I found. - us4phil

2004 Pacifica: Weird combination of Codes: P0032, P0461, P0700, P0562 ( I know what the codes refer to ) 1) Check engine light is on 2) all other gauge behavior is normal ( temp/rpm/gas/oil ) ...
If the engine is hard to start or if it cranks but does not start in freezing temperatures, a new idle air control (IAC) motor and software update to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) may be needed.
