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.

Water Leak Due to HVAC Case Not Sealed at Bulkhead

If the HVAC (heater) housing is not properly sealed at the bulkhead (firewall), water can leak into the passenger compartment. Foam sealant should be used to seal any gaps and the evaporator drain tube can be modified to prevent further water entry.

Static Discharge May Cause Problems With Seat Memory/Heater and Adjust 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.

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.

This Chrysler recall number is E04.
