Not sure if its related but in my 2005 Eclipse, the display went blank (radio still worked) when the cigarette lighter fuse was blown. Check you fuses.

I have a 2002 Spyder. We first had a small leak on the passenger side after it would rain and it would run down the door and into the speakers. About a year ago, my daughter locked the keys in the car and called the insurance company who sent out Pop a Lock to open the car. Since that time the car leaks like a seive. After heavy rainstorms she has found as much as a half inch of standing water in the floorboards as well as all the upholstery is wet. It has shorted out the electrical system which we had replaced last week. We were told that perhaps the drainage system (?) was blocked but it was recommended that we replace the convertible top as all the stitching has worn away in the hot south FL sun. Does anyone have any other suggestions or know how to unblock this supposed drainage system? We have no idea if the pressure from the Pop a Lock experience might have caused the worsening of the problem or not but this whole idea of the car leaking at the seams has me freaked. This car only has 50,000 miles on it and is being driven by a college student.

I have a 1995 GST and truly enjoy this vehicle. Its very reliable and I have not had many problems with it. With the right maint. the car will truly be good to you.
I have not had a problem with oil or any of the problems I've read. changing the timing chain is a must. If it's a turbo check that out. but all and all I totally luv this car.

My clock/radio display recently went out on my 2002 mitsubishi eclipse gt spyder. When i turn the car on u can hear the cd player cycling through discs and you can put in and eject cds, but no sound comes through the speakers at all. i tore it apart and the speakers are hooked into the clock/display. Anyone know where i can get a replacement part or what to do to fix the problem? thank u so much!

That happened to me on my 2005 GT and it turned out to be a fuse on the side panel of the dash. A good garage can pull up the list of fuses and their location.

Did you ever get an answer to your wet floor boards issue and if so would you please share with me. I can't afford to pay what the dealerships want to charge to check it out. Thank you!
#476 of 496 Question about 1999 GSX Eclipse
Jan 06, 2010 (4:11 pm)
Hi everyone! This is my first post here so hopefully I'm in the right forum.
This is very remote and so far I haven't got much luck trying to find out what's going on so hopefully you'll have some idea's for me. My daughter brought her 1999 GSX with 28,000 miles on it in for a routine oil change to a very large well known discount tire store and basically immediately after getting the oil changed oil started spewing out of her valve cover( except we didn't know that's where the oil was coming from at the time ) so we returned to the shop to find out what was going on. First they said that there was a hole in the cover that didn't belong there, then they said no wait it does belong there and it's some sort of breather type hole. Today I call there and the managers is mysteriously out of the shop in a meeting the whole day. Feel like I'm getting the run around. I called a couple different Mitsubshi dealerships and they said that it sounds like they overfilled the oil creating too much pressure causing it to blow out the hole.
My question is have you ever heard of or experienced anything like this
Thanks in advance for any help or insight you can give me to this problem!
