Apparently so, there is some wiring harness differences. One solution I could go with is to replace the Body Harness, but that is quite a job. I was considering that for my 2005, and just decided to drop it. I did have an offer from a Dealer service shop to replace the harness in 3 hours and install my NAV at the same time. Apparently they had a technician that did a lot of these in my neck of the woods and so that was going to be easy for that person to do. I also found the correct body harness for $680 new on the West Coast, so the total cost was going to be under $1200. But I did nto do it, even tjhough I did research it very well and was ready.
I am still trying to find out from Chrysler how to get the Mini-trip computer and the compass working on my EVIC - I am having a hard time considering that they installed the Tire Pressure sensors and not the Mini-trip computer and the compass? Seems quite idiotic. I checked the central fuse and relay box under the hood (power center), and it has all the fuses and relays for the pacifica installed, so it seems like a matter of determining what is the course of action to get additional features turned on - I think think with the body computer can handle whatever is installed and I need to find out what needs to be instaled to get the compass and the minim computer functions working. With the Mini computer, I think it is all in the sogftware as the computer is monitoring all the appriopriate data on all the vehicles, the compass may require the addition of the magnetic input - both are probably not very much $$ to install. Kinda wish my dealer had a Touring Model instock and offered me the same deal - oh well, I might just keep poking at some wrecked vehicles to get the appropriate components.
So just to see what it would take, I am going to:
Find out the differences between my body computer, wiring harness, AC, EVIC and one from a touring or limited.
Price out the components (wiring, sensors, etc)
Make a final judgement at that time of which ones I am going to do and which ones I am not going to accomplish and let eveyone here know.

OBTW, on my 2005 touring, i installed:
The Factory DVD player and display
The Factory Sirius Receiver and the Roof Mounted antenna
Auto Dimming Mirror
Chickened out on the Nav after reading about the concerns required whe working aroud the Passive Retraint system - I was very concenred that I might set off a trigger and then power everything up and get popped in the face with an Air -bag . So any body harness work, even though I can easily do it will be left up to a dealer where I can get a reasonable price.

Well I did a litle research and found out the Compass module is a module that is inserted into the Overhead Console. what I will try to find out next is whether or not the cable running to my roof is more than power to the console. If it is more than just power, then I may be abble to add the Compass module. I have heard that is where the mini-trip modulwe is also located but no verification as of yet. I will keep you all informed.
wish me luck!

Yes it is interesting trying to do this. Well I do have more info, the overhead console cost 1400 bucks new. The CMTC module cost another $240, so from my source it would cost a total of $1600 - 1700 to accommodate. They used my VIN to match up the part numbers. So the parts will work apparently. Another interesting thisn is that my car came from the factory with the cellular antenna on it, but sofar I have not been able to find out if I can add that back in either?. Oh well I am looking for a overhead console from a wrecked 2007 pacifica Touring or limited. and see how cheaply I can get that.

Well I bailed and traded my 2007 in for a 2007 touring and now i am happy. I verified that I needed a new Instrument Panel harness, a new body harness, and then the ATC head unit and the Overhead Console and CMTC module, total well over 3k bucks to add the desired components to the Base model - dunno if it also required a different body computer, the numbers are different I think. So I traded it in for a slightly used Touring - came out prety well , 1000 over what I previously owed, and lowered my payment by over 20 bucks per month. Spent $411 bucks to add auto dimming mirror, auto headlights and fog lights. Waiting for the parts to show-up. will install in a few hours. All will be good after that

#760 of 847 adding 6 cd changer and rear lcd for dvd
Mar 23, 2008 (7:20 am)
Hello everyone, Glad to see there are so many pacifica fans. I own an 04 that has no rear entertainment system or the 6 cd changer just the standard cd player,am,fm radio and remote steering controls. I have read the forums on adding various upgrades and I am still somewhat confused. I just want to add the 6 cd changer and rear LCD. There are multiple parts available on e-bay however I don't know what I should purchase. the early 03/04 systems sound like they will work best according to forums. I found a complete 05 system I am intersted in purchasing on e-bay will this also work? Also is the wiring available separately? If someone could please let me know asap. I would appreciate it.
