Question about 2004 Chrysler Pacifica

1 Answer

My 2004 Chrysler Pacifica won't start.

My car was serviced and they replaced the engine bolts that were bad. since then, the car was towed twice because it died once and the second time it just would not start in the driveway. Each time, the car started fine at the repair shop and they could not find anything wrong with it. Now it is sitting dead in my driveway again. The tow truck driver who towed it the last time thought that it might be the alarm. When you go to start it, everything electrical works, lights come on, etc. The repair shop asked me if there was any clicking noise when I try to start it, but there is not even one click. I can't believe that I will have to tow it again. I thought it might be possible to disable the alarm system and see if that is the problem. However, I have no clue how to disable it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks. You were somewhat correct. The engine mounts or bolts were replaced incorrectly.

Try grounding the engine, they may have moved, removed, or broken the ground straps.

Take a jumper cable from the black(NEG) post to a bolt or clean piece of metal on the the engine.
And see if it starts.

Also check the connection at the starter, in case they had it disconnected during the repair.

Hope this helps.

My 2004 Pacifica won't start


Connect a jumper cable from negative on the battery and the other end to the engine block. If it starts look for a broken ground wire under air cleaner box from engine to motor mount or directly in the center front of the engine. The ground in front has a wire attached to it.
Good luck

Pacifica won't start. Everything else works. What could be the problem?


Hook a jumper cable from negative terminal of the battery to the engine block. If it starts there is a bad ground. Look under air cleaner box and directly in front of engine. Replace with a # 10 copper wire and you should be all set.

It is for an oil change mainly and any other service your maintenance manual suggests at the mileage interval. It needs to be reset after each oil change to be accurate.

2004 Chrsyler Pacifica Won't Start


2 possible problem come to mind:
  • Bad ignition switch; faulty switch will occasionally make contact but not every time
  • Bad starter; less likely but possible; a bad starter will function when it's cold but when it heats up, takes much more power to make it work
I hope this helps with your problem and wish you the best of luck. Take care!
