Installed new gear shift 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse-car won't start

The heater core busted on our 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse. After removing the entire dash panel, console and gear shift to replace the heater core and then re-installing the new dash panel, my husband realized the gearshift was damaged in the process. Got one from a junk yard in A+ condition. After installing the gear shift, the car has no power and won't start. Any suggestion on where to start troubleshooting the problem?

    The battery was disconnected during removal of the dash. It has since been reconnected and tested and is not dead. Also the car is an automatic. The headlights/driving lights are working but when the key is in the ignition switch there is no power on the instument panel. Thanks for your reply!

just copy and paste this in the address bar. This is the manual for the automatic transmission.

do the same with this one. This link is for the engine electrical.

It sounds as if your husband knows what he is doing. The information in these two manuals is extensive right down to the last bolt if there is other info that you need just let me know.
I hope this helps

Where is the heater fuse located for my 2001 Mitsubishi eclipse


Have them flush your heater core. Often all of the gunk that runs through the engine settles in the engine core. Even after you flush the system,http://www.spobd2.com/wholesale/autel-maxi-ds708-original-spanish-version.html it regularly remains and re-pollutes, as you have experienced. It will continue until you either flush or replace your heater core.

Where is the heater core located on a 2000 Galant?


behind the glove box!
Inspect/Replace If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core.
Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

I need to replace the heater core in a 97 mitsubishi eclipse


Unfortunatly there is no easy way to do this. You have to remove the entire dash to get to it. After that it's pretty easy. But it is located close to the firewall behind the dash either on the passenger side or in the middle.

get your heater core checked out. the heater core is right by the blower motor and if its busted it will blow the smell into your car.

Dodge ram 2500 1999 heter core need to be reaplace


I have a 2000 1500, but from what I can see it is the same fix. You need to pull dash forward. 2 bolts behind kick panels one on either side. Screws along top windshield I believe there are 6. Detach steering shaft. (lay down on drivers side facing up. 2 bolts hold in place) This should allow entire dash to tilt towards seats. Heater core is passenger side. You will see 2 metal lines going through firewall. This is your heater core lines. Detach these from rubber hoses inside engine compartment.

Here's where you can follow the book, or do it the easy way... The book says you need to remove the ENTIRE dash and discharge A/C unit before removing.... I have a way better fix.

With a hacksaw cut the metal lines off the top of the heater core (its already junk so don't worry). Pull up on heater core to remove. Now the tricky part. With the hacksaw, cut through the plastic housing. Start far right and cut down until you meet the natural break in the 2 pieces of plastic. Now start another cut on the far left of the housing and again cut straight down. You are creating a door for the new heater core to install. ***Save this piece of plastic housing as you will need it***.

Install new heater core and then use JB Weld to fasten "door" back into place. This should save you about $300 and hours of time. Have fun...
