2001 eclipse GT 6cyl 5 speed jerks terribly when heater or headlight comes on

I have a 2001 mitsubishi eclipse GT model 6cyl.I noticed that when I put on all the electrical system i.e heat, headlight, radio, wiper etc, the vehicle begins to **** seriously and the tachometer RPM begins to go up and down.However once I switch on one of the equipments especially the "Heat" or "headlamp" the car drives normally. Don't know what to do anymore. I thought it was the alternator not supplying enough charge,so I bought a brand new alternator from PEPBOYS. Installed a 1000 amp battery which seem to work for about 1 day and then the problem started again. What do I do.Love this car so much but right now I'm thinking of selling off the car if I can't get this figured out. Don't have too much money to spend so someone please help.Thanks Ade

SOURCE: Volvo 240 wont hold charge

if with the volt meter the amps go down while running and at increased rpms than your alternator is not charging right

SOURCE: My battery drains overnight

Connect a 12 volt DC test light between battery cable & post on positive terminal.(remove terminal) (inline) When that light is on, there is a draw. Radio memory, alarm/antitheft systems, etc will cause a draw, so make notes & pull them first. Light will be dull on low draw, bright on high draw. Watch light closely & start pulling fuses, when you see it dim down,or go off you;ve found a draw. If no change, put it back in & continue. I usually start with the suspected draw spots like listed above, and accessories fuses.(like a cigarette lighter stuck in.) If all else fails, I've had to remove all the fuses then start replacing one at a time, until light gets bright, to point me in direction of major draw. Don't be proud, if you don't think it's labeled well enough for you to remember where they all go, make your own drawing & notes. Keep me posted of your progress.

SOURCE: 97 ECLIPSE JERKING AND POWER LOSS WHILE DRIVING

could be a number of things (throttle position sensor, crank position sensor, bad injector, faulty coil, bad plugs,etc) i would take it to a shop and have them scan it .If the scanner comes up with multiple problems and your forced to start "throwing parts " at it, remember most electrical parts cannot be returned once opened, so it could get expensive.shops sometimes have what i call "test pilots", properly working parts to put in to see if it corrects the problem through a process of elimination. this is one way a shop can actually save you money.

The slip disks in your automatic transmission and some synchronizers are worn out. Your transmission needs to be overhauled and repaired.

I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT Neutral light blinking


Could be a wiring issue if you already replaced the speed sensor. I believe there are 2 speed sensors on that tranny though, and both are usaully replaced at the same time.

How to replace a headlight bulb on an 2001 Eclipse


Under the hood and directly behind the headlight you are trying to replace the bulb in, there is a rubber piece that is circular with 2 flat "handles" on it. Disconnect the wires from this, then wiggle the rubber piece out. Behind this is a clip. Release the clip and the bulb should come out. Replace the bulb, close the clip, make sure the rubber piece is back on tightly, and reconnect the wires.

Best part about it : No tools needed.

I just did this the other day with my 2001 eclipse GT.

2001 mitsubishi eclipse gt


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.
