    Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Issues And Problems

    I had to replace the OEM battery with the Optima DH6 H6 / LN3 800 CCA. Do I need to register /recode it with the on board computer? BTW it was not exact size.
  4. Nut size for battery

    Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Issues And Problems
    We've had trouble with the battery for our Pacifica almost since we bought it. In 2019 the dealer replaced the battery, but we started having trouble again this year. The dealer blames everything on us - we aren't driving the car enough. (A few weeks ago the side door wouldn't open for about...

  9. Service Stop/Start System / Aux Battery

    Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Issues And Problems
    I found out this weekend that the "service stop/start system" message had been occasionally turning on. Just rolled over 36k last week, of course. My OBDlink scanner couldn't find any DTCs, so I searched the forums and suspected the battery(ies). Put them each on my little charger for a bit...
  10. Replaced auxiliary battery but Stop/Start NOT working. What did I miss?

    Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Issues And Problems
    The local dealership ran their diagnostics and confirmed the aux battery was dead. They wanted to charge me an arm and a leg to install the new battery, so I purchased one from O'Reilly's and installed it myself. However, the stop/start feature still won't work, and the warning "A" sign remains...
  11. Battery life for long term owners

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica PHEV Hybrid General Discus
    I'm sure there are a lot of owners here who have owned their vans for relatively long term (1+ year). How's your battery holding up? Is there a battery life indicator for PacHy? Is it still at 100%? Did any of you have to get a replacement due to significant battery capacity reduction?

    Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Issues And Problems
    I must say I am very unhappy. So short version I got a service start stop system message. I took the car to the dealership (Jeep Chrysler Dodge Fiat of Ontario, CA) who had it for a few days.

  15. Battery Conditioning

    2017+ Pacifica PHEV Hybrid Batteries And Charging
    Is there a way to manually condition the battery? If not, I'm hoping FCA catches wind of this post and implements it in a software update.
