How to fix a starter on a 2006 Chrysler pacifica


Hello A. J. Arland,

Most folks find it more economically reasonable
to simply replace the starter...
(see below)

You can check VERY reasonable prices at ROCKAUTO.COM ..

It is important to note... Your STARTER MIGHT be fine...
Your SOLENOID could be causing the unit not to operate correctly...

There are multiple test procedure...
I am ASSUMING you have already performed... because your question is merely REPLACEMENT...

First... single and most important step...
DISCONNECT THE GROUND wire at the battery...!!

Remove wires from starter.
(always tag where the wires connect... perhaps even a picture).

Remove bolts from Starter...
(always track where the bolts come from)

Reverse above steps...

Happy motoring.

HI, I have a White Rodgers model 1F89-211 thermostat. All I did was move it to the opposite side of a wall into another room and now it runs backwards. I heats on cool and cools on heat. Help?


Phillip...

The SECRET is to connect it exactly as it was (before).

The screws on the control are color coded

R,W, Y AND Green... TYPICALLY that MATCHES THE TERMINALS OF THE SAME COLOR inside you heater controller.

Yes ... Red, White... Yellow...

What you need to do is look at the picture you took... or the notes you took BEFORE disconnecting those wires...

ELSE...

Go to where the HEATER CONTROL BOARD IS...

Pull the front cover... Snap a picture for your memoirs...

and write a TRUTH TABLE

AT THE HEATER... TAKE NOTES...!!

RED SCREW = (for example red wire)
Yellow =
Green =
White =

BACK AT THE Thermostat Screws:

RED = (
SAME COLOR WIRE as at the HEATER)
Yellow = (SAME COLOR
WIRE AS THE HEATER)
Green = (
SAME COLOR WIRE AS THE HEATER)
White = (
SAME COLOR WIRE AS THE HEATER)

You should be fine...

Parking sensor wiring / reversing light wiring


Pretty much universal is the color coding on vehicle lights. Brown, or another color with a brown tracer/stripe, is always the running lights. You wont see an all brown wire on these newer vehicles. Always another color with the proper color tracer. Brown=run & tail-tag lights, green is right turn and brake light, yellow is left turn and brake light, and black is the ground wire to the lights. Inside cab and under dash, You need look closer for these colored tracers.all ground wires are white. This is what I've found.

no brake light or blinkers.


you've lost power to your rear wire harness.
use a test light.
1.check test light at battery first to make sure the test light works(test).
2.remove seat and find each wire going to the rear section of the bike.
it should be a plug in type connector, I believe its a 5 wire connector.
3.unplugg this connection and test the side coming from the front of the bike.
to test it, turn ignition on. hold tester to one wire at a time. When test light comes on, that
is your power wire. note the color.
this power wire is for your tail/tag/and or any running lights

turn left blinker on, then hold tester to other wires to see which one blinks. note the color.

turn right blinker on, then hold the tester to wires to see which one blinks.note the color.

step on brake pedal, then hold the tester to wires to see which one comes on and stays
on until you release the brake. this is your brake light wire only and comes from a brake
pressure switch.
the brake switch should have constant power to one side always. when you apply the brakes
the pressure in the switch make contact to other side of switch which sends power to your
brake light. note the color

the wires running under the fender make be broken from scrubbng the tire.
fix the wires or replace them.

4. if you had no power at all, then check your battery is fully charged
5. if no power with a good battery, check fuses.
6. if no power with a good battery and good fuses, then you'll have to trace the wires in the wire
harness to find where the break is.
7. to test any ground wires, simply reverse the connection on the test light.
hook the clamp to the positive side of the battery.
Now test any ground, by touching the tester to it, even the engine and frame should be
grounded and make the test light come on.

As a mechanic, i know time is important, and this test will only take approx and hour or less to perform.
i am color blind and i have to test every wire all the time to make sure i know which wire is which.
once i find it i label it.
works for me everytime.
takes longer to find it then to fix it.
Hope to be helpful.
Best Regards
Big Al
