Vincent240s 3-Key FOB Receiver - You will likely need to transfer this little receiver from old console to new console but it just has two small screws holding it in place.

Any trick to disconnecting this one? Either mine is stubborn, or I am just not smarter than it. Thanks!

Yeah, that $99.99 one sounds like it. There were two cup holders on top and two that slid out at the bottom back. The center opened up with a decent sized storage compartment and the whole top slid back to open yet another large compartment. As I remember, there was a latch at the back that you could release to remove the entire console since there were no wires to disconnect. I wish it would work on the Pacifica but it did not go all the way to the firewall like ours does. The one on our Touring-L has a cubbyhole storage and a pull-out cup holder for the second row seats, but no closed storage which I miss. The T&C also had two generous glove boxes on the passenger side, more storage than any other vehicle that I've ever had. The Pacifica's pull-out drawer in the center of the dash helps, but doesn't replace the ones we had in our T&C.

I still have to stop by the dealer to take a look at the "super console" then price it out to see if it's worth changing.

What did you end up doing? Switching to the Super Console? If so, yourself or dealer? If you don't mind me asking, costs?

Thanks

Not yet, but when, and if, I do, I'll take photos before and after, plus costs. Just been too busy to inquire. I really miss the console we had in our 2014 T&C...

There's a sliding drawer in the rear with cupholders. They are not optional though. I'll take a photo with them extended. The holders probably are removable, but they're setting in a molded cavity as part of the drawer.

Ah, thanks for that insight. I'll be sure to check out a Limited at the dealer to see a Super Console before I try to buy one to change out ours.

I'm still mystified why they couldn't keep the design from the T&C, two very large storage compartment plus four cup holders. I've always have been of the opinion that a engineer should be required to use the products that they design before the bring them to market, and engineers should never be allowed to write instruction manuals, they know too much about the product and tend to skip details that they think everyone else knows.

Alternatively, I'm thinking a USB extension cable with a 90 degree plug could come from the rear of the dash cubby hole next to the USB jack and just plug in (see thumbnail). It could be unplugged from time to time and coiled up in the cubby hole if something else needs to plug in that front jack. The other end goes into the floor super console top box as you suggested. This approach shouldn't have warranty issues.


Either way it needs to be "professionally dressed" and easily removed or tucked/hidden during trips to the shop.
much easier to add a cigarette lighter and connect it to a 12v source then plug in a usb cig lightr so you can have usb, this can be hidden under the seats
