Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

Multipal problems I just got a 97 eclipse 1st is the radio, at first, it had no volume but it had power. It would turn on read cds but not one sound, and we know the speakers aren't blown. Now theres no power at all to the radio. We put in a new fuse under the hood because it blew, and still now power. Ok second, the dash board lights dont come on when I turn my head lights on like it should. Nothing at all lights up. Now what could be the problem???

As for the radio, there may be a second fuse plugged into the back of the head unit itself - you'll have to remove the head unit to check this. It's more common on aftermarket units than on factory ones, but it's usually pretty easy to pull the head unit out, so it's worth a shot.

As for the dash lights, at the risk of me sounding patronizing, did you try turning the dimmer switch up? You may have one that is labeled as a dimmer, or it may be that you turn a headlight knob (if you have a pull-out design), or you may have to turn one of the little rods coming out of the gauge cluster - try all of those and see.

Also, check inside the vehicle - usually down in the driver's footwell you'll have another fuse panel, and that's where you'd find illumination fuses if there are any others.

I have the stock RF stereo and my 07 eclipse will not read cds, how do i fix this?

If it will accept the disc but not read it, you will need to replace the stereo or have it repaired. Dealerships use a radio service to repair these to keep costs down, so if you are out of warranty you might try contacting your dealer parts department and ask if they would do an exchange unit for you.

This is a common issue with the 06-09 eclipse radios.
