Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

All of the lights in my center console and in both the driver and passenger door are not working (power windows and lock switches). Do you have any idea why this is happeneing and what I need to do to make them all work again? I have checked the fuses and all of them are good (providing I didn't skip one) and also the cigarette lighter is working so is the control for the power mirrors (which is also located in the center console) so some kind of power is running into the console so I'm at a total lose so any help would be great! I was thinking maybe a relay is bad but I have no idea which one it is or either a plug in the consule has come off. Thanks in advance for the help!

    I checked both under the hood and on the side of the dash and didn't find a bad one.

    Also every mechanical windows, locks and mirrors are working it's just the lights in or around them are all out.

    Any idea what relay controls these lights?

    Thanks for the help.

  • evan20x Aug 01, 2009

    I did not check the bulbs cause it made no logic that all the bulbs in both doors and the center consol would all go bad at the same time.

    I'm assuming either a relay (if anyone knows which one it is tht operates these light that would be a HUGE HELP, or a wire either got cut cut or a plug came out cause I bought the car used and it has all the sighns there was a system in it before I got it especially since not all the screws are in holding the consol down.

    But if anyone know what relay to check please let me know other than that I just need to go on a hunt for a wire that is cut or a plug that has been pulled out. What a pita this is going to be I think I'd rather my engine explode than trying to track don an electrical problem lol, they are by far the worst!

    Thank you ALANBR for all your help so far but don't leave me yet cause so far your the only one giving me direction as to what to look for. thanks everyone and anyone that can help cause it is really driving me nuts not having the lights on!

Sometimes there are fuses in more than one spot. There are usually some under the hood and some under the dash on the drivers side. Specifically look for power windows.

    It is not usually a relay, only a fuse or fusible link. The button switches on the door aren't stuck are they? I am sure you have probably checked the bulbs as well? I hope that you don't have a wire cut somewhere?

  • Alan Barben Aug 01, 2009

    If there is one light that comes on it may be your easiest source to fix this, if not it has to be only a couple of things 1) fuse that you can't find 2) switch on the door not coming out and turning the lights on. 3) check to see if you can find a fuse that is labeled as interior lights or something that you suspect would run the lights and check to see if power is getting to the fuse with an electrical tester set on 10V. 4) If you have power to the fuse plug it is between the fuse and the lights, if there is no power to where the fuse plugs in, then you have a problem between the fuse and the battery. From there it would be find the wires that are on that circuit and find out where you wire is cut. Hope this helps a little.

I have a 2007 Cadillac cts my key stuck my Windows stuck my flashers flashing and my car starts up so what's going on


Your key is stuck ? It won't move , it won't come out of the lock cylinder ? Can you shift it from park to drive , neutral etc... Are there any lights lit on the dash , yellow wrench light , service vehicle soon light ? any messages on Driver Information Center ? Your Cadillac has numerous electronic features controlled by modules - computers ! If your not familiar with electronics an these things I suggest you take it to someone who is . Does you Cadillac have console fool shifter ?
Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.
Linear Shift Assembly: If the vehicle is equipped with a column mounted gear shift, it has a linear shift assembly on the steering column. The linear shift assembly has a cable that runs from the linear shift assembly to the ignition lock cylinder case. The purpose of this cable is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in gear and the vehicle may still be moving. The linear shift assembly cable contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.
The windows are no exception , they are controlled by modules in each door an are connected by a serial data communication bus !
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door window can be operated, either from a power window switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA) , or, from a power window switch mounted locally on its associated door. The driver door window can be operated only from the driver door power window switch built into the DDSA.
When the driver door module (DDM) receives a driver door window switch request from the DDSA, the DDM examines the request and inspects to see if it has received any messages from any of the other vehicle modules prohibiting the movement. If no prohibitive messages have been received, the DDM then applies power and ground to the driver door window motor to move the window as requested.
When a passenger door module, passenger front door module (PDM), LH rear door module (LRDM), or RH rear door module (RRDM), receives a window switch request from, either the DDSA or the window switch mounted locally to its door, the passenger door module examines the request and inspects to see if it has received any messages from any of the other vehicle modules prohibiting the movement. If no prohibitive messages have been received, the passenger door module then applies power and ground to its associated window motor to move the window as requested.

The passenger side brake light, and passenger side (front and back) window control doesn't work is it a fuse?


Well, the short answer is no.
The lights and windows are are different fuses.
There's a slight chance you have a problem with a ground wire on that side, but I doubt the two problems are related.
I would check the light for power and ground, and look at the window switches for power and ground. The windows are powered thru the driver switch on most cars.

Doorlocks dont work except from passenger side. mirrors dont work. windows dont work from anywhere


First, check all fuses to make sure that none are blown.

If the door lock switch works on the passenger side, then the drivers side door lock switch is probably faulty. Use a multi-meter to test the Drivers Side Door Lock Switch (Black and Pink/Light Green wires unlock the vehicle, and the Black and Pink/Yellow wires lock the vehicle)
If the switch is tested and found to be operating properly, you may have a faulty Body Security Module or Drivers Side Door Lock Actuator.

If neither of your Power Mirrors are working, you probably have a faulty Exterior Rear View Mirror Switch, Power Mirror Module, or blown Central Junction Box Fuse.

If none of your Power Windows are working, you probably have a faulty Accessory Delay Relay or a blown fuse in your Central Junction Box or a faulty Master Window Adjust Switch (all of the Power Window Switches feed through this Master Window Switch). If the Power Windows didn't stop working at the same time, you may have faulty Window Adjust Switches, or faulty Power Window Motors, this is very unlikely though. It would also be a good idea to inspect the wiring for any obvious damage.

2005 Honda Accord, all three passenger power windows stopped working. The drivers window works and the window lock is not on. When I try the switch on each of the passenger windows i cvan hear a clicking...


you most likely have a power/ground/switch issue in the drivers door. the power for the other three doors must first travel through the switches in the driver door before it goes to the passengers. hence the reason why when somebody rolls down a passenger window and you push the up button on the driver door the window stops moving. the wires can break inside the rubber boot in the door jam. you can also have an internal problem with the driver door switch unit. you would need a wiring diagram to diagnose this concern.

Rear side windows


This may be just a case of inadvertently hitting the window lock out n th driver door window switch by mistake. Check that first. Here's some background on window operation

Principles of Operation
The driver power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the master window/door lock/unlock switch (and its integrated "auto down" module). Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The driver power window regulator motor is a reversible motor that is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The passenger power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the passenger power window switch and can also be controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The passenger power window regulator motor is a reversible motor, which is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The power rear quarter glass is also directly controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. The power rear quarter glass power latches also utilize reversible motors. The power rear quarter glass power latches are operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to open the window, and then reversing polarity on those same leads to close the window.

try taking apart and cleanig all contacts first. make sure you are getting power to switch. Sounds more switches are going bad. They usually last about 5 to 7 years before they start going out.
