Question about 2004 Chrysler Pacifica
Hi- When the power rear hatch goes up or down, there is supposed to be a sound like a truck's backup alarm. It used to do that well, then it got softer and softer, and now it only sounds on occasion. Does anyone know where this beeper is located, and can it be fixed? It's somewhere near the rear end, I think. Thanks!
First try to understand if there is a parasitic drain.
Once you exclude the drain, replace the battery, a battery with shorted cells can cause the drain.
The firmware has nothing to do with drainage, unless the unit is factory defective.
To measure drainage remove ignition key, connect the amp meter between the battery positive wire connector and positive terminal.A couple of milliamps drainage is normal, and is caused by instruments, car stereo memory, ECU etc.
Start removing more fuses , and open the wiring at different points , trying to locate the problem.
Remove the fuses and see if you have drain by connecting a meter to read amps on battery, if you have drain with no fuse, then the problem is insulated to wiring harness before the fuse, with something shorted between the battery and the fuseblock.
Also check car stereo and car amp HU, the HU can keep a unit on when the ignition key is off, causing drain.

Sensor is located passenger side of the intake and mounts facing the firewall .It takes a torx bit to remove .NOT a philips as screw is hard to see from the front.I use a bit with a 1/4 in socket as a full size screwdriver will not fit.Remove screw and use a set of pliers to twist and pull back.

There are some possibilities which you
will have to check in this case:--
1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.
2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.
3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.
4) The other thing to check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.
5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it’s a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

SOURCE: where is the alternator located
The alternator is hiding under the engine cover. You must remove the engine cover if you have one. Locate the power steering fluid resevior. The alternator is right behind it.
