I was given an '04 AWD Pacifica last month, and knew that I would have to have some repairs done to keep it on the road. The possible showstopper is the lack of key-on check engine light - an automatic emissions test failure here in SE Wisconsin. I already have $1200 into this car, and the potential expense of diagnosing/repairing the light has me wondering if I should dump the vehicle before it costs me more than I am willing to commit. The vehicle passed a state of Georgia emissions test in March, and my daughter-in-law had been driving it until she left it with us in November. I did find a new, never installed o2 sensor in the rear under-deck compartment. I just wonder if anyone has had a problem where only the check-engine light doesn't work. All the other warning lights light up at key-on. Any thoughts or ideas appreciated.

I have a 06 Pacifica and the other day the passenger side locks and windows stopped working. Upon arriving home and walking around the car i smelt burnt wires. I do not have the money to replace the BCM at the moment and also cannot go without the car. I am trying to figure out how to go about cutting all power to those systems on that side of the car. I know they are controlled through the BCM but not sure if i disconnect those wires from it if that will correct the short or if i have a constant power supply wire i need to locate as well. please help me.
I had a problem with my dashboard completely lit up all the time and after 7 months of mechanics and the run around, I found a local old book mechanic that replaced my abs module as a whole unit instead of having to buy separate parts at a huge price tag. Instead of $1200, I only had to pay $350 for a used one that my mechanic took to be recoded with my vin # at the GM dealership. Also, I found out GM won't do anything about Pacifica's electrical problems until enough owners put their problem on www.carcomplaints.com Their representative says no recalls are issued until the problem becomes large enough to grab their attention...then fixes will be issued. So everyone write your complaints there and lets solve the problem once and for all!
I have a 2005 Chrysler pacifica with the 3.8 v6 with 107,000 miles. Last week my cluster went dark and windshield wipers quit working. After check the fuses and cussing up a storm everything started to work again except for the check engine light. The local auto parts store hooked up their computer and gave me 2 codes U140 "Lost communication with body control module" and U110C "Lost fuel level message". I have searched the net for information but can't find anything. Is this gonna be a costly repair or is it just something that happens periodically? I would hate to have to buy another car since it is now paid for but I am really not inclined to drop a huge amount of money of fixing a car and then worry about being nickel and dimed to death. Any suggestion or repair guidance?
