Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. Tell me when you turn on the ignition, does the red security light come on for about 3 seconds and then go off?

It does just as described
Expert:  Chris replied 5 months ago.

Ok, is it starting now?

Chris

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Did not. Tried, seemed like it was going to but died off
Expert:  Chris replied 5 months ago.

Ok, then I am leaning towards a possible fuel pump maybe. When you turn on the ignition, can you hear the fuel pump in the tank come on for a couple of seconds and then turn off?

Chris

Ok. I did get the car to start and I ran it about 2 miles. Gas gauge read out at 1/2 tank - I added about 3 gallons just enough to get it over half. I then took it and topped it off 8 gallons worth which is appropriate if it was over half full. Is it possible or probable that the pressure regulator in the passenger side of the tank isn't pushing gas over to the driver side?
Expert:  Chris replied 5 months ago.

Yes. I have seen that before on the Pacifica, and I think you will need to have the tank removed and pump(s) replaced. This is what I recommend at this point.

Am I correct that the 04 has the access panels under the second row seats? It looks that way in the repair manual
Expert:  Chris replied 5 months ago.

I don't think so, but let me double check. Be right back.

Expert:  Chris replied 5 months ago.

No access panels (sorry). But I have provided some info in that link below. Click on it to see it.
