I just recently bought a 2005 Pacifica and the owner only had 1 key (key-fob combo). I checked with a couple of dealerships for cost of extra keys, WOW they are not cheap. I went on Ebay and found keys with fob and without. I bought 2 without and had to take them to a dealership to program them. Cost me $35.00 for both, not to bad.
If you have 2 working keys you can program a third key yourself (keys with fob or without) Most of the sellers on Ebay will send you the instructions on how to program the keys.
Also on Ebay they sell just the shell for the fob combo.
Hope this helped.

Took my 2006 Chrysler Pacifica to the shop a couple of weeks ago to find out why AC air was not coming out the front dash vents. The AC blower and controls were working fine, just no air out the front register vents. They found the cam had come loose to the damper that controls air to those vents. They said it was back on and everything seem to be working fine.
Two weeks later it is doing it again, is this something I can access fairly easily myself. Which side is this connector on in relation to the drivers side.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Hot in Texas.
#2599 of 2626 Brands of oil used on your PAC
Jun 21, 2011 (10:25 pm)
My 07 PAC Touring AWD has 102,000 miles on it, I have used Mopar 10/30 oil at the dealer from the very first. I use only 1 pint in 4,000 miles. So I am pleased. I was told told 4 years ago Mopar was really Mobile 5000 10/30 oil sold in bulk to the dealers. Recently someone told me Penzoil now has the contract for Mopar. Does anyone know anything for sure who supplies oil for Mopar now?
I considered using the synsethic oil, but Chrysler does not allow for extended intervals beyone the normal mileage in either schedule A or B. By the way no one can qualify for schedule A. Read the requirements for schedule A and see there is no way for anyone that drives any where to meet Chryslers requirements. Any thoughts on this ?

I have a 2004 FWD with currently 177,000 miles on it. I am using Mobil 1 in it and have so far had no problems. I have been using it since about 140,000 miles. I appreciate changing my oil less frequently.

There is no reason to go by the owners manual when everything is at your expense. My situation is much different, the 07 pac's came with the lifetime powertrain warranty, so I am certian Chrysler wants proof of all work done by the schedule. The Mobil 1 according to Chrysler must be changed just the same as tge 10/30 oil. That does not seem right but they make the rules. Do you have the 3.5L in your pac, and have you had any problems with the PAC? Many 04 owners have engine cradle rust problems and Chrysler has stood behind them.

One thing to consider when using Mobil One or other synthetic oils in your engine. Although the oil itself keeps its' lubricating properties longer, the oil still gets dirty at the same rate, which leads to engine wear. I was told by a mechanic that you can use synthetic oil longer, up to 15,000 miles, but you still need to change the oil filter every 5,000 miles to maintain the cleanliness of the oil in your engine. This seems to make sense.

There is no question that synthetic gets dirty.... supposedly, however, because of it's properties, it doesn't get the same kind of dirty, or at the same rate as conventional oil. That's how it can be rated so much higher in longevity.
I change it at about 7500-8000 miles as opposed to their suggested 15000. The key here is to use a quality oil filter.

n call Chrysler at 1800 992 1997 and get Service contract info. Chrysler hasa 3 year no intrest payment plan. I have bought three this way. My 2007 Pac Tooring AWD Max Care $100, dect. cost $ 2400. and it covers everything, wth the LifeTime to match the power train warrant. I have 103,800 miles ad Chrysler just paid over $ 1,000. for new fuel pumps because the fuel gauge was so far off it was unbeliveable. I have has a starter, swaylinks and the driver seat lumber adjustment fixed. The cost has already equaled what I paid.
Just for your info. the AWD Pac's have two tanks shaped like a saddle. The right pump sends fuel to the left tank and then it goes to theengine. I was dumbfounded when the Service Manager showed this to me.
