#64 of 133 electrical problem
Sep 21, 2008 (4:08 pm)
Went out to the pacifica the other morn...found the radio playing, a/c blower blowing, trouble lites glowing, all like the key was on b4 start. The key was in my pocket with the switch off. Tried to start (still had a little battery), started for 2-3 seconds and quit, did the same 2 more times after charging battery. Any ideas would be appreciated
#65 of 133 Instrument Cluster Dark & Remote Lock Failure
Oct 19, 2008 (8:06 am)
I have a 2005 3.8L Pacifica bought new in July '05 (out of warranty) with only 27k miles. I've had a remote lock and instrument cluster failure twice now a few months apart. They way I notice it is when I go to remote lock my vehicle I don't get the horn and light confirmation. I get back in the vehicle and power it on and the instrument cluster is dark, no illumination or display. The vehicle still starts (luckily) and everything else seems to work fine. After it sits for awhile, the instrument cluster comes back on and everything appears to work fine again. The last time this happened the check engine light illuminated so I finally got some fault codes to troubleshoot this problem. I did the 'on acc on acc on' trick to get the fault codes to pop up on the odometer. I got two fault codes u110c (No Fuel Level Bus Message) and u0140 (Lost Communication With Body Control Module). Has anyone else experienced this glitch? Anyone know the possible cause, solution? Since my vehicle is out of warranty, I don't want to waste an expensive service fee to troubleshoot this intermittent problem. I can't seem to find a TSB or Recall that specifically addresses this problem. Thanks for any help.

I just got that problem today. I have a 2005, i believe a 3.7, im not sure about the ltrs. I do have a warranty, so when they hopefully find out i'll be sure to let you know. I took it to get an oil change at Midas, they gave me a report on the car. It said that our years have a problem with the speed sensors, so if you feel your ride getting whack when slowing down thats probably what it is.

Newer instructions indicate that 07 and later models use a different slot but already have a fuse in it. So you should be ok.

I have the exact same problem with my 2004 Pacifica. Here's a synopsis of the circuit. The fuse in the power distribution panel under the hood feeds the circuit breaker--I believe embedded or under the power distribution panel. The power then goes to the seats control modules I believe in the door panels which are then connected to the seat position memory function.
When my seats stop working, I pull the fuse for about 10 minutes and then replace the fuse. The seat movement function is restored. I've also disabled the selection for the memory. My hunch is that the memory function is sending a signal through the control module to one of the motors which then are at the extreme, and do not cut off. This in turn causes the circuit breaker to overheat and "pop" which then cannot reset because it remains overheated.
We need to post this complaint on the NHTSA website under the vehicle complaints.
(If this continues to be a problem for me, instead of paying the outrageous dealer labor charges and parts costs, I will wire (14 gauge wire) a fused circuit from the battery to the door switches and cut out the entire circuit as designed.)

#70 of 133 Heater and defroster problem
Dec 15, 2008 (6:29 pm)
I have a 2007 PAC touring with 16,000 miles. I cannot get heat to the floor. Heat only comes out of dash or defrost. I repearedly tried different settings on heating control but heat will not blow to floor. Very cold In Chicago and feet are freezing. Also windows freeze constantly with any cold and moisture. Winter is miserable with PAC.
#71 of 133 defrosting/ fogging problems
Dec 27, 2008 (7:50 pm)
Help! I'm having difficulties with my 2004 Pacifica windshield fogging up. If I vent a window, the fog will disappear (but it gets a little cool at minus 20 celsius!). If I do not vent, but opt to put all the air flow on the windshield, it will eventually freeze up and reduce my visibility greatly. My dealership can not get my vehicle into the shop for another month. Suggestions?

I had the same problem when i came out to start my car at night. It didn't look like my left bulb was burnt either. After trying for a long time to get my light bulb, i went to the dealer and asked how i would get it off. They said it would take an hour to get being that you had to take off the bumper. I was ******* pissed, so i go and buy a new set of bulbs in case the other one decides to take a crap on me. I went to my bros and he tells me that I just gotta take the two black screws off that are under the hood. They are just above the grille, after that loosen the headlights fastening screw. Pull out the light, don't be scared, the bottom of the light has a pin type mechanism that slides into a groove on the body.so when your putting it back on look under the light and see if it matches up with the groove. If not you'll be rigging your lights. Oh yeah another thing, Remember how you took your bulb out of the socket, it took me a while cause the locking device was snug. Hope all works out for you. Overall, it only took me 30 min. tops. Damn retarded dealers," Take off the bumper" HAHAHAHAHAHA
