NO- every radio has it's own unique code to prevent theft. serial numbers will allow you to get a code from the net or take the car to a dealer and see if the code has been recorded

Not sure exactly what you have but if you hooked up LED's directly to a 12V power source, then more than likely you need to add a diode inline (Load balancer) so the voltage doesn't surge up and down. I would suggest cruising the internet search engines for "how to load balance my LED's" or This might help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTlsswwm4Ew Or maybe you just bought some low quality LED light's off E-Bay.

Hi there, I'm Al the owner of Big As Auto Repair

If you've never changed a head gasket before and you do it wrong it can be very costly to you. Because if you fail to set up the timing correctly you can bend every valve in the head costing you big time money. BUT, if you are still wanting to do it yourself go to my website, click on "Contact Us" and give me all the information about you car. "Engine size, Make, Model, Year and VIN number and your name. I'll help you step by step, BUT, understand I will not be responsible if you miss a step and bend the valves, but if you listen carefully and follow instructions we should be able to get you through. It's up to you, my website is below. Have an awesome day! Auto Repair

First off.. If you have a check engine light on, Find someone with an OBD2 READER or buy one yourself(very good tool to have) and that will give you the code(s) to your problem..

If not.. Check ALL your fuses..

If those are good and you DO NOT have a sealed tranny.. Check your fluid..

If all the above check out good.. It's gonna be 1 of 2 things..

1. Your overdrive is either turned off and/or damaged.. (Over drive on: uses all 4 gears/Over drive off: uses only 3 gears)

2. Your shift silonoid pack is damaged, which normally when this happens your car goes into a thing called "dummy mode" and keeps the tranny ONLY in 2nd gear..

Now assuming your car shifts into every other gear just fine.. And the fact that normally reverse is the first gear to go out.. I'm gonna say it's your overdrive or a relay that runs with your overdrive..

Let me know what happens or if you have anymore questions..

2 things; If you jack up one front wheel, stick it in gear, does it try and turn the engine? If it does then the trans is turning. Did you check the trans operated in all gears before you fitted it?

Next, is it possible the clutch friction plate is in backwards. If so then the raised side that holds the damper springs is hard up against the fly wheel and causing the drag that prevents the clutch from releasing.
I cant help with info as to whether the trans is a fit but while you are underneath the hood, look and see if the clutch arm appears to move the right amount when the pedal is pressed. The only other thing I can think of is that the trans is seized somehow. You can test this while its jacked up by starting up on idle with it in gear, the raised wheel will turn.. Try this in all gears but BE CAREFUL with it on jacks, better to have jackstands under both sides.

If you go online and search the images for your car there are all sorts of pictures of timing marks. I put in "99 Mitsubishi Eclipse timing belt" and it all pops up.

Check the crank shaft positioning sensor. Had same problem with a 94 model. Also in a jeep. Replacing it should fix the problem.

remove the part and take it to a dealer spares department and ask for a better one of these.. Tell then where you got it from in their parts break down. Saves a lot of trying to explain.
