  1. 2018 Pacifica S auto start/stop issue

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    Stop/start has almost never worked in our Pacifica. They replaced both batteries (main and ESS), and updated the computer, but it still only works after a few hundred miles of a road trip. Around town, it almost never works.
  2. 5000 mile road trip

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    I say the same thing every time I cross the Rockies. Being able to select gears would be amazing.
  3. 5000 mile road trip

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    Same here. Mine never gets out of 7th gear on the highway at those speeds. It’ll sit at around 2000 rpm, and with ACC set to 85mph, I averaged 22mpg on a short 320mi road trip yesterday. It’s not like there were a ton of hills, either, as it was through eastern Kansas.
  4. 2 remote-start limit is infuriating...

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I have the block heater, but it literally only helps keep the block, oil, and water warmer. Does nothing to help with ice or snow on the rest of the car. It it is nice to be able to start the car when it’s -8 outside, and the oil and water temps are in the mid 70’s. Gets to operating...
  5. Need a new van - Touring L or Limited??

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    For 2020 you DO get a pano roof if you option the 8 seat option.
  6. Owners with ESS post here

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    The “restart after shifting to park” is how mine works, when ESS works. It’s very annoying. The easiest flash would be “ESS disable when park distance sensors active”.
  7. Why does the Pacifica even have a 9 speed?

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    The return trip showed largely the same behavior in terms of transmission gear, never getting above 7th while at cruise. MPG was, however, significantly better than the trip west. Once out of the mountains, with ACC set to 80, we were seeing 27.5mpg on the flats for several hundred miles, with...
  8. Brakes on hybrid same as gas?

    Tires, Wheels and Suspension
    After getting stuck on an embarrassingly slight hill in the snow this week, I’ve decided I want snow tires. I’ve currently got a 2018 Limited gas with the 20” wheels. My original plan was just going to get some 245/50R20 Blizzak DM-V2’s for the stock wheels, then get a set of Spider Monkeys...
  9. Dashcam installation

    Electronics
    I did my dash cam install just before Christmas, and noticed that the plastic covers frequently got “in frame”. I ended up mounting mine just to the left of the GPS antenna, which is far enough over to not get much in-frame, but still allows full field of view of the road. I’m using the Roav...
  10. Why does the Pacifica even have a 9 speed?

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I’m not expecting Prius mpg, but you are getting 6mpg better than mine. That seems like more than noise. Yours also sounds like it shifts into 8th. As far as I can tell, mine never has.
  11. Why does the Pacifica even have a 9 speed?

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    We just wrapped up a 650 mile road trip leg through the flat mid-west in our 2018 gas Limited, and only averaged 22mpg with no traffic and 100% flat open highway. ACC was set at 80 (75mph limit). At 80, it’s sitting right at 2250 RPM, which means it’s not shifting above 7th gear. I really...
  12. Terrible gas mileage

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    This is amazing to me. My 2018 gas Limited gets pretty awful fuel economy from what I expected on the highway. ACC set at 75, and it’ll do 22mpg through flat Kansas. It also never seems to shift above 7th gear, so it just turns 2250RPM’s at 80mph all day long. We got it in May, and just...
  13. running boards

    Appearance & Body
    Does anyone know if the running boards are available pre-painted in Copper Pearl?
  14. Owners with ESS post here

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    We have about 5k on our Pacifica, and the ESS system has not functioned in months. The EVIC reports the system is not ready because the battery is constantly charging. I expect the ESS battery is dead. On the one hand, i hate ESS so it doesn’t bother me. On the other hand, it SHOULD work, and...
  15. Improved brakes?

    Towing
    I’m betting this is a long shot, but has anyone swapped to different brakes on their Pacifica? We have, in addition to our Pacifica, a 2014 Durango. It will need brakes soon, and I’m very likely going to install a set of SRT Brembos. This leaves me with a set of Durango calipers. The Pacifica...
  16. 9th Gear Club

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    I’ll have to recheck the math on it. ACC set to the 75mph speed limit, it’ll sit happily at 2000rpm through the flat Midwest. I’d thought that was 7th gear, but maybe it’s 8th. I hit 9th for the first, and only, time on a recent trip coming down from the Rockies. ACC off, 70mph, after a few...
  17. DVD menu tips. How to click play???

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    We resorted to my wife just leaning back and pushing Play on the screen. Not ideal.
  18. Using Apple TV in Touring L Plus

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    Yes, using the outlet will eventually drain the battery. But you said you will be driving 15 hours, and driving keeps the battery charged.
  19. Using Apple TV in Touring L Plus

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    You SHOULD be able to use it, so long as you either tether it to your phone for internet access, or have set up the cars WiFi hotspot. I’ve been looking into installing one permanently (after modifying to run on 12V DC) if there were a way to plug it into the HDMI port under the seat instead...
  20. Poor highway MPG ???

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    I just made a quick spreadsheet to plot engine RPM vs speed. It seemed odd that I would sit at around 2000rpm at cruise on relatively flat ground. By contrast, my Durango readily shifts to 8th and happily plods at along at 1500rpm in MDS (4-cylinder mode) at 70mph. Granted, it makes a little...
