why has it been in the shop for 28 times???
My wife's Pacifica is 17 months old with 11,000 miles on it. The driver's side window mechanism broke and was replaced. Other than that it has been oil changes and lots of gas.There isnt really any action in the Pacifica area, even though I see tons of them on the road each day!?!
Anyway, If you have had a issue fixed on your Pac, or have a problem, and want to figure it out before taking it to the dealer, post your things here!
Personally, If anyone has a issue with their pacifica, and wants some help figureing it out, and seeing what needs to be done, feel free to contact me. My pac has been in the shop 28 times since I got it, so i have experanced alot of things with these cars. I will be able to help with alot of quesitons about the Pacs, but anyone, feel free to post answers and questions here!
How much difference could the "official" 05 have compared to the model built 2 weeks before? Woudn't they still use the same parts, built by the same people?well...mine was made 2 weeks **BEFORE** the "official" switchover from 04 to 05 was, even though mine is VIN'd as an 05...
My 2004/2005 pac has:How much difference could the "official" 05 have compared to the model built 2 weeks before? Woudn't they still use the same parts, built by the same people?
I had something very similar to this on my 1999 Intrepid ES, not on my wife's Pacifica. I am very anal about my cars, do most of my own work and am very in tune to how they sound feel etc. What caused the problem on the Intrepid was turning the ignition key too far back after starting the car. This car is 6.5 years old and the ignition mechanism is just a little bit sloppy. I realized that I was turning just a little too far back. The car still ran, but all of the idiot lights came on.I knew this would happen....
Today, My wife and I went back to the same Furniture store.
MY Pacifica still had the engine light on for U0110 and U0140...
Went into the store, came out started it up. and Poof! no codes, no more engine light. :huh:
I'm glad I retrieved the codes when the light was on, even though they seemed erroneous.
But this little hiccup has still got me perplexed, as it would anybody who just forked over $26K for any car!
I think I'll wait until the next oil change (or Failure!) before I waste a day trying to explain this to my dealer. The Servicewriter would probably just shrug and say "What do you want us to do? The car isn't broken now!" :blink:
I'm thinking I like the "hiccup" answer. I'll just buy my pacifica some mor fuel and the hiccups will go away???
