Question about 2004 Chrysler Pacifica
My 2004 Chrysler Pacifica will NOT start. I put the key in the ignition and it does NOTHING. It does not even turn on the lights. There is a clicking sound that comes from under the hood even with the power turned off. I found a relay labeled "EA ext relay" in the fuse box under the hood clicking. When I removed that, there was still a clicking sound inside the car even w/o the key in the ignition. I disconnected the battery 15 minutes trying to reset the system. As soon as I reconnected the battery, the clicking started again. This time when I put the key in the ignition, the red alarm light flashed inside one time and the hazard lights flashed as well. FYI, it is NOT the starter or battery. Battery is less that 4 months old and again, no lights on inside at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Pacificas, like many modern vehicles, are battery hogs. When the key is turned off, the seat moves back and the interior lights come on and stay on for a while so you can exit in brightly lit comfort - and there are a great many lights inside the Pacifica. Clicking instead of starting usually means that insufficient power is reaching the starter and that problem usually means loose or corroded battery terminal connectors or a half dead battery. I got tired of jump starting our Pacifica and installed a small trickle charger (bought at Altra-Battery for about $20.00) and a short extension cord (14 gauge) so I could simultaneously attach the block heater and charger to a single plug protruding from under the hood. In the summer time I just unplug the block heater from the extension cord and plug the car in for several hours about once a week or overnight. Under the hood, there is a perfect place to stuff the excess cords between the battery and the windshield. I don't think I even used a zip tie to keep the cords contained. Problem solved and the battery lasts longer too because it doesn't get so discharged over time from short trips.

Mine did the click, click and the timing chain had snapped. If any of you have 2.7 litre engines plan on an engine rebuild or a replacement. Look up the 2.7 engine size along with oil sludge and timing chains. Grab yourself a towel to sop up the tears. This car is 100% garbage and I'm shopping for another non Chrysler product this week.

1999 CONCORDE: check the battery terminals probably they are not tight enough...something like that happened to me just the lights turned on and the car seemed to be dead, the battery is still ok since then. I just needed to buy new terminals.

Is this the original battery? Have u had it tested? The no crank, clicking noise is classic dead battery symptoms, lights can still work, but not enough power to turn engine over. If it's the original battery, it's at the end of it's life cycle, and should be replaced. U can get the battery tested for free at any parts store.
