  1. ESS Battery Charging?

    Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Issues And Problems
    I have a few questions about the ESS (automatic stop start) and the battery that it uses. I have a 2018 Pacifica minivan (Touring Plus) that has been idle for most of the last 15 months or so. It was started about every other month, except for maybe the last 5 or so. When I started it up last...
  2. Ess battery issues

    Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Issues And Problems
    I have a 2018 Paciifica with over 50K miles, I bought it as an ex rental vehicle last year, hence the high milage.

    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...
  6. ESS, Dead Battery and Rotten Egg Smell

    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. For the record the service department is very courteous but given this is my second time driving the car...
  7. Engine Start Stop (Auto Stop) not stopping

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I've done a search and can't find a previous thread discussing the exact same problem I'm having on my 2018 Pacifica. For the last few months I've noticed the Auto Stop is not working. The van runs just fine, no issues at all, but now it never shuts the engine off when coming to a stop. I've...
