How to Plug in the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid–At EV Charger or Home Charger


Are you a proud new owner of a Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid looking for some guidance on how to charge your vehicle? Look no further. I’m Thomas Smith and in this blog post, I’ll walk you through the charging process, using my own Pacifica to demonstrate.

Here’s a video that I made showing the full process. This works both for your home charging station and at a public charger.

Finding the Charging Port

The first thing you need to know is where the charging port is located. While regular gas-fueled vehicles have their fuel tank opening towards the rear, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid’s charging port is located at the front of the vehicle.

To find it, look for the port on the driver’s side, just ahead of the side window. It should have a small ‘E’ logo on it. Once you’ve identified the charging port, you’re ready to move forward.

Opening the Charging Port

To open the charging port, you simply need to press on its side. It should pop open, revealing the actual charging port used for the charger. Now that you know where the charging port is and have it open, it’s time to charge your vehicle.

Charging Your Pacifica Hybrid

Whether you’re at home or using a public charging station, you’re going to plug your charger into the charging port in the same way. Take your charger and insert it into the charging port, making sure to press it in until you hear a click.

You should then see the charging indicator come on, showing that your Pacifica Hybrid is currently charging. It’s that simple!

Detaching the Charger and Closing the Port

When you’re ready to drive away, there’s one more crucial step to follow. Before disconnecting the charger, press the button on the charger to detach it from the vehicle. Then, pull the charger straight out.

Now that the charger is no longer connected, you can close the charging port. To do this, simply press on the door’s side until you hear it click. This ensures that it’s fully closed and isn’t going to open while you’re driving.


Charging your Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is easy once you’re familiar with the process. Knowing the location of the charging port, how to open it, and how to charge your vehicle are essential for any Pacifica Hybrid owner. Be sure to follow these straightforward steps, and you’ll have a seamless charging experience. Happy driving!
