Bad earth circuit, check that the battery is grounded, and any other ground connections. ( ground = chassis/body of car) Asmost of the electrics are "switched" on the + side and the indicators are switched on the - side then the grounding is "forced" through the indicator circuit, giving you on/off electrics, check all connections and clean any rust, re connect and cover with vasaline to protect.

My 02 eclipse shut off while driving and wont start now. I turn the key and it tries to start but wont. My friend said it might be the fuel pump or the relay but we couldnt find the fuel pump relay.


- to check fuel pump/relay- with drivers door open - radio off - insert key and turn from OFF to RUN-not start- should hear a hum from under car back towards tank- relay is under hood in second fuse/relay panel
? did you hit a bump just before car shut off? - if so look in manual for location of EMERGENY FUEL CUTOFF- usually in trunk area- large red push button- can trip sometimes with a hard enough jolt

My 1999 Eclipse gs engine light came on, DTC P1390.


P1390 - Timing belt skipped one tooth or more.


the engine is an interference engine so if the timing belt skipped, it should be fixed before starting the engine again. otherwise you run the risk of bend/break valves from piston to valve contact
