^^^ agreed. @Tsnor , the press release stats that it will be restarted again once the engine turns back on after cold start.

Thanks for your link though, I found this MOPAR ESS system on other vehicles. It is "safe" to assume that the Pacifica uses the same set up... yes, but probably with more advanced tech.

reading up on the ESS system on the 200, here are the ways you can deactivate ESS if you wish (to go to extremes on some approaches lol): "The system does not work if the driver is not buckled in or has their door open; if the battery is too hot or cold; if the car is on a steep grade; if the cabin is too hot or cold; if the defroster is on, with the fan on High; if the battery is not fully charged, the engine is not warm enough, the hood is open, maximum a/c is set, or if the brake pedal is not being fully depressed."

Disconnecting the "hood closed" sensor seems to be the easiest thing that would affect little else. It might mess with the alarm system/locks, so that would need to be tested.

That would certainly disable the remote start system as well.

I finally have my Pacifica and can give you my initial impressions with ESS.

First it is hardly noticeable unless you are watching the tachometer. It starts back up quickly and really causes no delay in accelerating from a stop. I also noticed from the outside when remote starting that the starter is extremely quiet. Much quieter than any previous vehicle I've had.

.Congrats on the new arrival! I see you already updated your avatar

It's great to hear that Chrysler seems to have done ESS right in the Pacifica. Keep us posted as you get more use out of it!

Thank you. I've already noticed some other things that seem to have been addressed as well. I will be posting on those too.

Can you provide pictures of where the extra battery is and the ESS button? My vehicle was built last week and just downloaded the window sticker today. The online owners manual has not been updated to include ESS. Did your owners manual cover the ESS feature?


If you do a YouTube video you will be the first to cover the Pacifica ESS!

Page 337 of the 6th edition describes the ESS.


Here are the pics. The aux battery is right next to the regular battery. It's just much smaller.


I'm not much of a youtoober so you'll need to settle for pics only.

Oh and I can confirm that each key cycle turns it back on if you turned it off.
