Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse
I have a wiring and fuse issue with my 1996 Eclipse. Most of the things inside of the car have quit working. Including my radio, interior lights, turn signals, blower motor, hazard lights and more. My temp gauge instantly jumps to high when I turn the key on and my windshield wipers won't turn off. I knew the car had a charging problem, and I found the 120amp fuse under the hood blown. I replaced it and it instantly blew when I connected the battery. I unhooked the cables from the alternator and it didn't blow the next time I connected the battery, so there is a short inside of the alternator. Now I've found the 10amp "room lamp" fuse under the hood is blowing every time I connect the battery. I am in serious need of help with this issue. Thank you very much for any advice. I just don't know how several different things would instantly short out. I bought the car, and before hauling it home (bad clutch/flywheel) the previous owners jumped the car off and all of the interior things worked and the motor ran (although it idled at 3000 RPM which I assume is either due to the charging problem and the battery not having enough charge to control the computer). I hauled it 45 minutes to my house, unloaded it from trailer, and nothing worked inside except for a couple of lights on the dash, headlights and tail lights. Jumping it may have shorted the alternator out maybe, but why all of these other problems. Please HELP!!!!

I had a problem with my tow/haul button not working. I came to find out that the gear shift had cut the wire running to the button in two. You may want to check that.
