Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Passenger side headlight won't work

I have had my eclipse for about 6 months and have driven it 3000 miles with no major problem except that my passenger side low-beam will not come on (with high beams it works just fine) and I have looked at the relays, the bulb and the socket (all have been replaced, or checked out as fine). I am only getting 1 volt of power over at the bulb socket with the low beams, but 12 when the high beams are on. any ideas?

This sounds like a wiring problem. I know it has been documented that the '01 eclipse headlight connectors have had issues with arcing and this problem sounds like the wiring may just be shorting instead of arcing. I would recommend starting at the bulb socket and working backwards along the wiring, looking for shorts along the way. It would also be important to note if your low beams do not work at all, versus working occasionally or even sometimes flickering while driving.

One low beam head lights will not work, high beam works though


check for a damaged wire for the low beam. Also wouldn't hurt to check the ground wire as the high beam will try and ground through the low beam but not visa verse

Water on floor on driver side front seat


It could be the heater core. Usually it leaks on the passenger side, but it could be running down to the driver side. With you stating it has overheating issues, that's why I think the heater core. If this is the case, usually the whole dash will have to come out.

1996 CAMARO BLOWS HEADLIGHT EVERY 6 MONTHS


ive had 2 camaros and both did this. remove the headlight and take the bulb out of the back of the sealed beam. be careful not to break it as its glued in, but it is possible. just be gentle and patient. replace the bulb with an aftermarket 9006 bulb (hi beams are 9005) and silicone it back into the housing. i haven't had one burn out yet after doing this
