Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse headlights start flashing.

The car has a keyless entry system but the horn stopped working in that respect quite a while back though it works when I honk the horn from inside the car. Now the lights will start flashing at random times when no one is in the car as if the panic button has been pushed. Does anyone know what is causing this to happen?

    mine has the same problem and I was able to cure the intermittent lights blinking by using the key to disarm the system by locking and unlocking the doors from the drivers outside lock. Still working on the horn thing too and I noticed in the fuse box under hood that their is a space for 2 small relays marked security. Only one is there now. I think at one point someone pulled the other one because they set it off and didn't know how to disarm it so they pulled the relay to stop the horn. Still working on it though.

The four button remote with keyless entry and remote start on my 2001 buick lesabre has stoped working. The keyless and trunk and horn functions all still work fine just the remote start has quit working. ...

it maybe that the relay in the alarm module for the starting function has stopped working. your best bet would be an alarm shop where they can test the connection for function. have seen this issue several times. Does the engine turn over at all? if it does then the time for cranking may need to be adjusted.

Horn will sound only after keyless entry system has checked all doors and sensors are in locked condition,

Does the 2001 eclipse syper come with a keyless entry key

It depends on what version you have. My 2001 Spyder GT came with 2. Unfortunatly they tie in with the radio and anti theft system and when the battery dies in the little stick remote (doesnt take long for this to happen) you have to get the codes off the radio, call mitsubishi, and get the exact right codes to make them work again

There is a large rectangle item in my 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse fuse box that is ticking. I have lost all power to the vehicle. What is the rectangle object. It has a the number MR 515944 imprinted on it.

I had this same thing occur with my eclipse with a battery that had been dead for a long period of time, so long that the security system was going off. The "fuse box" you're talking about is actually the relay box. Inside of it are a couple relays that are important: The "theft-alarm horn relay" and the "headlight relays". Most likely one of these are the source of the clicking. The good news is that if you hook up a new good battery, the anti-theft device will deactivate after a set period of time and the clicking should stop.

Wont start

Could be an electrical problem. Clean your battery connections. Sounds like you are not getting voltage to the ignition coil. Check fuses. Check if horn, wipers, turn signals are working. Try this test: turn on headlights and then turn ignition key to start. The headlights should dim if the starter solenoid is engaging. You did not mention if it is manual or automatic transmission but most cars have an interlock switch that prevents the car from starting if it is in gear.

If it's like mine, you should be able to find it sitting just to the left of the driver side headlight. Somewhere between the headlight and radiator. you may have to remove your factory air intake box to see it. I use a after market air intake so I can get to it with ease. Not hard to spot, should have a single wire attached to it. Hope this helps.
