2001 mitsubishi eclipse head light problems?

I have a 2001 mitshibishi eclipse that is driving me crazy. When i turn on my low beams my driver side headlight gives me a high beam but when i switch it to high beam then the driver side light gives me a low beam. I tried moving the 3 cable that go to the bulb around but always got the same result, i don't know what to do. I would be grateful if someone could help.

SOURCE: Adjusting Headlights w/2001 Eclipse?

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

Passenger side headlight won't work


This sounds like a wiring problem. I know it has been documented that the '01 eclipse headlight connectors have had issues with arcing and this problem sounds like the wiring may just be shorting instead of arcing. I would recommend starting at the bulb socket and working backwards along the wiring, looking for shorts along the way. It would also be important to note if your low beams do not work at all, versus working occasionally or even sometimes flickering while driving.

Passenger headlights only do not operate.


check the bulbs first and also the fuses theres a fuse for each side and for low and high beams, start there, good luck.
