AGM battery information:
https://batteryuniversity.com/index...._glass_mat_agm

under 'limitations', in the article it mentions must be stored in a charged condition. So for those Pacificas that have sat and not been started for a prolonged period of time, the battery was probably degraded.

Oh, I’m definitely watching this thread. I would love, LOVE, if someone said removing the ESS battery disables that function without penalty. My LIMITED is pre-ESS and we decided NOT to buy lifetime warranty because we were already planning to trade in for another Pacifica around 2019/2020 when all the bugs were addressed but I just don’t want ESS. Having a gas engine shut off at traffic lights during rush hour just gives me the creeps on rental cars I drive. Idling at traffic lights is where I guage my engine’s health, haha. I do have a friend with the DVD but it is pre-ESS and might not be relevant to your question even for the regular battery which is mounted directly next door to ESS battery so, like you, I am waiting for a more knowledgable 2018 owner to answer before chiming in. Interested for sure.

I have a Hybrid, so no additional insight.

Thank you @stop-eject , this is what I have been wanting to see. And as I thought, it is slightly more complicated than a 'traditional' battery change. I had also wondered is the corner brace needed to be removed.

This should be stickied and added to the knowledge base of the Forum.

Maybe we will eventually have someone do a step-by-step with pictures/notes and tools required.

I don't see anything complicated here. Air intake in the way so remove it, then it's just disconnect it, remove tie down, replace battery and reverse disassembly.

I'm curious it would be beneficial to figure out a way to channel more air to the area someway, as heat will kill the batteries before anything.

Thanks. I saved the PDF as I will replace the Mopar replacement battery at 2 years rather than my usual 3. I will use my "go to" Exide from Home Depot and get back on a 3 year schedule with it.

Here's where I hooked up my oil extractor which is where I would jump it.

I just replaced the battery today on my 17 Touring L which was a rental in its prior duty (I bought it with 46k miles earlier this month). I went with an Interstate at Costco at $143.99. The procedure was pretty cut and dry- I was worried about the intake thingy but it came off without a problem. 10mm on all the nuts.

The van had died a week after I bought it. Since I knew the van was on the dealer lot since May I put it on a tender until fully charged but that did not seem to help as it was very inconsistent with doors opening when the ignition was off and the horn was muffled when setting the alarm from the keyfob. It also had a hard time turning over at start.

Thanks for giving me an idea of a battery that might work. I'm expecting that mine will need replaced sometime. Date of van manufacture? (on driver's door edge) ESS?
