2005 Chrysler Pacifica Problems

Ticking Noise From Engine

The engine may develop a ticking noise, often caused by a broken retaining pin on the rocker arm shaft. When the pin breaks, the shaft can spin blocking the oil passage the rocker arms (which causes the ticking noise). The rocker arm shafts, rocker arms, and pedestals (sold as a kit) are commonly replaced in order to correct this condition.

Check Engine Light Due to Carbon Buildup on Valves

Carbon buildup on the valves may illuminate the Check Engine Light, indicating "Multiple Cylinder Misfires." The combustion chamber must be cleaned of carbon. There are updated valve spring retainers that will help prevent a recurrence.

Static Discharge May Cause Problems With Seat Memory/Heater and Adjustable Pedals

Static discharge and/or loose wire connections could cause problems with the front power seat memory, seat heaters, and adjustable pedals. Revised seat modules are available that resist the affects of static discharge.

2005 Chrysler Pacifica Recalls

The Engine May Stall Due to Fuel Pump or PCM Fault

The fuel pump module and/or the powertrain control module (PCM) software may allow the engine to stall under certain operating conditions, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will reprogram the PCM and in some models, replace the fuel pump module to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin on November 21, 2006. The Chrysler recall number is F44.

One or Both Headlights May Fail

Vehicles equipped with halogen headlamps may experience an intermittent and eventual total loss of headlamp function. This could impair a driver's visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the low beam bulb and wiring harness on both headlamp assemblies. This recall is expected to begin on March 28, 2005. This Chrysler recall number is E04.

I have had my Chrysler Pacifica for 9 years ant almost at the 100k mark. Overall I love the space and the way it drives. Has enough space to travel and transport dog.

Gets about 20mog and hasnt failed me ...

My daughter bought this SUV in 2009 and had 86,000 miles on it, now it has 180,000 on it. The only problems that she has had with it is brake pads and rotors which is normal and a thermostat stuck on it. But I think it has a broken motor mount now. But actually this has been a pretty good vehicle. Knock on wood she's been lucky compared to others.
