Looks like I am having the same problem as everyone else. I have an 06 Pac. The break light will come up and will lose the radio for a sec. It bothered me but I the car was fine. Today all the instrument lights came up and the car just stopped while I was waiting at a stop light. I wonder if the burnt alternator cable is covered under the extended warranty I bought.

I have the exact same problem with m '06 Pacifica. I have had my car at the dealership several times and they can not find a solution to this problem. Were you ever able to get your car fixed and if so what did they have to do to fix it? Thank you.

Did you ever figure out what is going on with your car?
My 06 Pacifica started doing the same thing. The ABS and Brake light flash along with a ding...and the radio cuts out every so often. And all the interior lights flicker, so do the exterior lights.
The dealer said it was a bad battery, it was a fix for a week. another mechanic i brought it to said the code was low voltage from altenator, but it has a brand new altenator.

I didn't take it to the dealer but tried to see if I can do something at least. I removed my GPS which was connected to the battery cigarette lighter. I removed the battery connectors and tried to clean them.
So far, the problem disappeared but I don't think it is gone. I have seen the ABS lights come on one and every once a while I would see the lights flicker.
Talking to a mechanic, he said most likely it is a bad connector/wire. Or a wire about to get burned. In his point of view, keep driving it till it stops or to the point where we can produce the problem.
Good luck. Please keep me posted with your fix.
#101 of 131 Electrical issues?
Oct 26, 2010 (4:48 am)
I don't know if this is related to everyones electrical issue, but for about 2 years on my 2004 Pacifica, I was replacing lights, headlights, taillights, 3rd brake light. The headlights were the most at about a pair every 6 months. I tried $20 ones and even $50 ones. No luck. Had a new battery installed about a year ago at Sears. Car had trouble starting up. Took the car back to Sears to check battery. They said alternator was failing to charge battery but the battery also had a weak cell. So they gave me a new one. I bought a new alternator and installed it. There was a lot of dust build up on the old alternator which the technician at Sears said was probably the winding going bad. It has been about 8 months with new alt. and I have not had to replace a single light so far. After the fact, the lights were blowing out as a result to a surging voltage from my alt. Compare that to my 2001 300M, which has the original battery and headlight with 140K on it. Go figure.

By the way, I still have not been able to figure out my power seat issue. they still pulse when you try to adjust them but they don't move. Anyone?

Same problem Solved by wiggling the wires that go to the fuse box to the right side of the battery. I have heard that there are connection problems to the fuse / relay box. A couple of fellers actually replaced the main (red) cable to the battery.
The whole box comes off with four tabs two on the battery side and two on the body side. I would disconnect the battery first. Remove the box, lift up, remove and reset reset all of the connectors. There are a dozen or so. Seats work again and no flickering.
If you remove the battery you only have to release the tabs next to the body and the box is hinged towards the battery.

I do not have a problem with the ABS light....yet. I'm waiting though. I have had my 2004 for 3 years (bought it used). About a year ago, the alternator went (I always had a weak battery-figured that was why). Now it seems that my nice climate control and center console lights staying on and the key chiming with the the door ajar-with no key in it. LOVELY!!! Hubby ran a code, said "low voltage". Climate control center is going nuts! The blower runs in high constantly, if you shut it off it goes to defrost on high-without the center being on at all! Cannot adjust the fan manually either. I also noticed something when my hubby reconnected the terminals...my fog lights flickered....ummm that's not normal. I think my car is ready to have a massive computer breakdown! I had a Chrysler Sebring convertible and lost the dash lights. That computer cost 1200.00 to replace! I can ONLY imagine what this one will cost! I think all of us listing random problems are facing the inevitable...replacing the main computer...someone needs to save all of us "suckers". Hubby is going to try changing the blower module. I will keep you all posted. Good luck to all of you. I will NEVER by another Chrysler. I don't care what hubby says! I'ld rather drive my 69 Grand Prix in the winter first!
#105 of 131 Blinking / Flashing dash lights
Jan 21, 2011 (9:59 pm)
Ok, i have had this problem with my 2006 pacifica. The lights on the dash will start going on/off and start cutting out the radio. The way to fix it is the red wire cumeing off the battery term is bad. The one that goes to the bottom of the fuse box, it go's to a stud with a nut on it. It will have a black plastic block thing on the wire it self. That is were the wire is failing at. I just made a jumper with a 7.00 wire from auto zone and it was fixed. It was just a 40 inch new battery wire with terms. at the end allready on. It was a 15 min fix that no one else could figure out. Hope this helps
#106 of 131 chrysler pacifica 2006 running lights stay on ???
Jan 23, 2011 (11:49 am)
this pacifica the running lights stay on when ever the engine is running and I can't seem to find a way to turn them off. Had a guy at auto zone tell me that is normal????? I don't think so. It burns out the lights every month or so and starting to show burn marks on the light socket it's self. I'm an electrician but not for this. Does anyone have any idea why they would stay on or how do I fix the issue. I see the same pacifica's everyday and there running lights aren't on.???? You help is greatly appreciated.
