A few points:

- You say that you are checking the square of the prices for
heteroskedasticity, but are modelling the returns?

- Also, while the PACF is a visual indicator, you need to perform
actual tests, like the Box-Ljung type portmanteau tests on the squared
residuals to be able to say something statistically definite. You
might wish to start here:

- You need to say what your model specification looks like.  You have
not told us your model selection device -- have you tried adding
further lags to your volatility equations?
