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 497 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!
#477 of 497 95 eclipse stalling
Jan 13, 2010 (12:09 pm)
So I have a 95 automatic eclipse that I love. Recently it has been acting up my RPMs will jump up and down and if I hit the gas pedal my car will jerk bad. The engine light comes on and then when I slow down it will stall my break pedal locks and I can't stop unless I pull the ebrake. I don't have the money to buy a new car I want to fix this one up. First I need to know what the problem is I have been told many things and I have replaced many things like spark plugs and wires including the distributer coil pack. When I had the code read for the engine light it goes back to the coil pack but i have replaced it 2 times in the last month it can't be that anymore. Someone please help me this car is my job and my life im 20 and its all I have anymore.

Look it up in the blue book to see what it's worth first. I have a 2001 eclipse and I have a wet floorboard on the driverside every time I use the airconditioner or go through a car wash!

It is located on the driver side of the air box behind the radio. Look from the top of the gas pedal up at a 30 degree angle to the fire wall, at the edge of the carpet is where it goes though the firewall. The air box is a black plastic box that fills the lower part of the dash behind the radio to app. 2 inches above the floor. The drain line is at the bottom corner of the box nearest the gas pedal exiting the firewall. The drain tube is fixed and is not removable. If it leaks the whole box has to be replaced or a new drain made and the lower part of the box modified to redirect the condensation to the new drain. In the engine compartment the tube barely comes though the wall, maybe a quater of an inch and can only be seen from underneath on a lift. Personally I thought this was poor design due trash accumulation in it from the road and cracking due to not having any flexibility filling the floor board with cold clear water while driving. I have since modified mine after pissing away $100 on two shops(one was the local mitsibishi deal repair expert) that would not listen to the issue I descibed and tried to tell me it was ok and I had a leak from rain and car washes. My floor has not been wet since my modification.
