Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

Replacing a aftermarket stereo in my 2000 eclipse gs

When we pulled it out we lost power to the sunroof, headlights, windows and dash lights, we replaced 4 fuses that where blown and this fixed everything except the radio, reading lights, clock and sunroof, we took it to advanced auto and the checked all the relays and they where fine, they couldn't find out why the sunroof lost power.

i really need help, i am having a local stereo shop re-wire everything for me in a couple of days, hopefully that takes care of everything. they said the could get my sound system and music working, but they would have to look at the sun roof and clock and reading lights

    did you cut the wiring harness? I had the same thing happen to me and its because the stock wiring harness was cut. So what I did was go to a junkyard and pulled out a stock stereo harness it cost me $3 bucks. You can find one online for $12. But I replaced the harness and then replaced the fuses under the hood. I replaced 2 of them the radio and the interior lights. if you look at your manual its fuses 2 and 3 i beleive. After that everything worked for me. hope this helps

Mitsubishi eclipse electric

Have you been under the dash or hood recently?
If the fuses are all OK it sounds like a multi pin plug/socket is partly displaced, maybe on the back of the fusebox?
The fusebox cover tells you which one does what.

How do I clean the inside lamp haze from my 2000 buick regal gs?

Unfortunately, these headlight pods are sealed units, and there is no easy way to separate the lens from the reflector--at least, not if you want to put them back together again. If you are dead-set on trying to clean the inside of the lens, you can remove the pod from the car, pull the bulb, and use a rag moistened with window cleaner on a stick to try to clean the worst of the haze off the lights. However, you won't be able to clean the entire lens this way, only the areas that you can reach.
The preferred way to get your headlights nice and shiny again is to replace the headlight pods entirely. Aftermarket, i.e., non-GM pods are dramatically cheaper than ones you get from the dealership--I recently purchased a set of new OEM minivan headlight pods on eBay for $50, when the official GM replacement part cost $278 per side ($556 for a matched pair). Note that aftermarket parts may be made of thinner plastic and may not fit quite as well or last quite as long--but for the price, you can afford to replace them a bit more often.

I replaced the stock radio with an aftermarket one and my tail lights and dash lights dont work now

Most likely you got the illumination wire for the stock radio grounded. The stock radio has lights in it that are connected to the dash lights to illuminate the dials of the radio. Most aftermarket stereos don't have a hook up for that. The wire may have got hooked up to ground. I would check the fuse to see if it's bad. Also you might want to undo the new stereo, replace the fuse, if it's bad, and check the wires for battery when the headlights are on.
