  • I checked the exhaust tip again at Walmart. It is the Pilot PM552 for $12.42. It is a Super Walmart which just opened in Prescott Arizona in the past two months. Maybe the smaller or older Walmarts donot carry the Pilot PM552.

    I found an exhaust tip at Pep Boys for $6.50. It's 9" long for a 2-1/2" pipe, tapered on the end, and is such a tight fit that I didn't have to use the hold down bolts. I just epoxied it on. It stands out further than the stock pipe, but it looks very good.
    I also had the driver and passenger windows tinted to match the other windows, and that visually ties it all together.
    The last addition is a scuff pad from chryslerparts.com. It doesn't look as clean, but it definitely is more functional with the pad protecting the rear bumper.
  • Has anyone installed a remote starter on their Pacifica? If so, any recommendations or feedback?
  • Thank you OHPACIFICA! I tried making my own molex connectors, but ended up having to buy the factory wiring harness as the pins were too small for anything Radio Shack sold. We already owned an 8.9" widescreen Toshiba DVD player that we hooked up to a tape player input (rather poor sound quality though) so we were thrilled with not having the $700 - $1200 option for the installed DVD player. After two (yes 2) trips in the Pacifica to FL from Pittsburgh, I thought "Wouldn't it be nice if my wife could switch DVDs without doing the momba to remove the player from it's spot hanging between the front seats while speeding at 70+mph down I95?" I bought the in dash unit off EBAY for $385 (no screen)and fooled around with many different connectors before finally caving in and ordering the factory wiring harness for $70. I spliced into the one end just as OhPacifica documented and added an RCA out cable to the back. I fished this wire under the armrest and tested the whole setup last night. It was awesome! I didn't even realize that the steering wheel controls work on the DVD player! Note: I already had the 5.1 sound system, I did have to splice into the right lighter power in the dash to get juice to the DVD player and my portable DVD player came with a cable for RCA inputs for the video. I've loaded it up with concert DVDs that I don't need to watch to appreciate and our next trip will be even more enjoyable. Thank you OhPacifica!!!!
  • Hello all,
    Was wondering how long it took those of you who ordered the Nav upgrade to receive the new DVD?
    Thanks for any info!
  • Took about 2 weeks or so...
  • Hi,

    I was wondering whether either alisac, cs668, or anyone else
    could give me more information regarding purchasing the wireless headphones and remote for the Pacifica on ebay. I bought the 6 disk changer and wired up a 14" screen that I jury rigged between my seats. Its working great, but a remote and wireless headphones would be great for the kids and my piece of mind.

    From earlier posts, I should be able to use these even if I don't have the overhead screen. If this is so, what brand did you purchase, and what was involved in getting the 6 disk DVD changer to work with the headphones and remote? I assume that the brand is not the same one as Chrysler provides?

    Thanks,
       Dave

    They ones I bought of of ebay were the Chrysler/Mopar unit and they just worked.

    Nothing special needed to be done. You hit the button on the remote and the rear speakers turn off. The front ones are controlled by the in-dash radio and the remote controls the changer.

    I bought the same set off of ebay that comes with the pacifica - the 2 wireless headphones and remote in the original packaging - My dealer wanted to charge me almost $200 per headphone and I bought the 3 for about $80 Canadian. I think it is mostly rental car agencies selling them on ebay - from caravans, town and countries that come with the screen but that they don't want to give to the renters.

    Hope that helps and hope they work! :-)
  • For those of you that have installed aftermarket DVD screens. How do you control the DVD Menu that comes up when you input a DVD movie (the settings such as 'play movie', audio, scene selection, language...). I realize you can change tracks with the factory controls. But it appears you cannot get the movie playing...no ENTER button. In reading the manual it appears you can only make menu selections via the remote control ENTER button or the ENTER button on the side of the factory flip down screen(not an option of you do aftermarket screen). Apparently there is no ENTER button on the 6 disc DVD unit. This is ridiculous...what if your remote breaks or batteries go dead? I plan to do an aftermarket 10" screen but the fact that almost every DVD requires you to select PLAY from the DVD movie menu and this can only be done from a remote control bothers me. Thanks for your help.
  • Anyone seen this before? Go to the news section and scroll down. Seems as if the Germans are one of the first to start modifying the Pacifica.

  • sounds great but the pictures are not a modified Pacifica. saved the pics and upped the brightness and the rear bumper is stock as well as exhaust. it would be sweet if they come up with a turbo or supercharger for the Pacifica and the dual exhaust built into the bumper like originally in the concept pacifica ....
  • Just got mine in the mail. took a little over 2 weeks.

    The Original DVD number was 56038 642AE.
    The New DVD number is 05064 033AA

    I asked for 56038 642AG to get the ability to enter the NAV menu while moving slower then 10 mphs but got the AA release. I am guessing the 05064 means its a newer release. Before I open it, does anyone know if the AA release allows you to enter the FULL NAV menu while in motion not just fully stopped ?
  • Spoke with Alpine Customer Service Number and it looks like 05064 is the newer series and 033AA is the LATEST release. it fixes the AG release. It was the AG release that is missing some Texas points of interest data (not maping data).

    They plan on returning to the 05038 642XX series after this interum 033AA release (it was a patch release). The next release should be 05038 642AH.

    FYI - and the AA release should allow you to enter then menu in motion as well :-)
  • On the Canadian and U.S. Chrysler sites it shows chrome body side moulding. Looks nice (I want it!) but I cannot find it during the build process or as a Mopar accessory. The moulding is shown on the U.S. and Canadian sites on the color pallet page. (inlcuded links below.)I am wondering if Chrysler is going to start adding it? Does anyone have info on this moulding, part numbers maybe ?

    In response to #152 by bjbird2. I maybe mistaken, but I believe that foglights are standard on all models. To turn them on, you pull the end of the light stalk out. The headlights must be on for the foglights to come on. There is a green icon that will light up in the instrument panel when they are on.
  • ramzey28ramzey28 Posts: 130
    Only on AWD, FWD they are not standard.
  • maxmommaxmom Posts: 62
    My fwd does have foglights and I didn't special order them.
  • ms_mayorms_mayor Posts: 113
    I've got the foglamps too, standard on my FWD model per the window sticker.

    Maybe they became an option later in the build year?

    put in backup sensors, dealer took better part of the day to install. They said they never installed this before because it is usually a factory option. love the system when backing up, never realized how much space there was behind due to the high belt line.
  • bjbird2bjbird2 Posts: 647
    I think foglamps are optional on the base model, whether it's FWD or AWD.
  • bjbird2bjbird2 Posts: 647
    I've also installed a backup sensor that always lets me know how much space there is behind me. My wife.
  • ramzey28ramzey28 Posts: 130
    Can let us know how much it cost and what it entailed. Anything in the dash. Any eye sores from it or the design of it (inside or out). Thanks
  • kmoykmoy Posts: 2
    cost about 300.00 plus 1 hr labor. 4 sensors placed above the rear bumper. A small monitor is placed inside the right side rear, has leds green, yellow and red. Makes beeping noise as you get closer to objects.
  • I'd like to replace the stock foglamps with a couple of aircraft landing lights. Did this years ago on a Ford Van I had and loved them.
    They were not built in fog lights but seperate lights in sharp looking holders. Anyway anyone living out in the country would know how good a aircraft landing light would light up the road.
    NOT TO BE USED WHEN MEETING ONCOMING VEHICLES!
    I've got a feeling that the current foglams bulbs might be smaller than landing lights.
  • ruskiruski Posts: 1,566
    buy an airplane.
  • the fog lights are 880L bulbs (29 watt) I think

    I put in the newly released Sylvania Silverstar 880L bulbs. about 10% brighter and much whiter (not a blue white but clear white) closer match to the HID bulbs in the Pac low beams...

    was going to thy the 889L but didnt want to risk melting or blowing a fuse with the higher wattage.

    also replaced the high beams out with Phillips most Premium bulb (much better then stock), brighter and whiter.

    those Xenon bulbs are bunk. look brighter but not actually brighter out on the road (lots of tests on the internet showing that they actually put out less light)
  • from what I read, if we have the HID light option on our Pacifica it is a Xenon gas light system.

     I think they are brighter then anything else on the road.
  • the HID is high intensity discharge lights (much different then the HALOGEN Xenon Gas bulbs) ...

    the xenon bulbs are those fake blue bulbs you find in many auto parts stores that say white like HID light bulbs and super bright ... ect ect ...
