Question about Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

HI, I WAS WONDERING IF SOMEONE CAN ASSIST ME IN FIXING MY 99 ECLIPSE. I WAS DRIVING ONE DAY AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE SERVISE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON SO I LIFTED THE CAR AND I FOUNG THE PROBLEM. IT WAS THE BATTERY CABLE THAT COMES DOWN FROM THE BATTERY AND CONNECTS TO THE ALTERNATOR BUT A DAY LATER MY BATTERY LIGHT CAME ON. IS THEIR SOMETHING THAT I DID WRONG OR IS THEIR SOMETHING ELSE THAT WILL MAKE THE BATTERY LIGHT SHUT OFF. THE CAR NEEDS TO BE JUMPED EVERYTIME I TURN IT OFF AND SOMETIMES WHEN IM DRIVING IT IT WILL EVEN SHUT OFF BY ITSELF.

My horn doesn't work all of the sudden in my mitstubisi eclipse 2000 srs. I'm a women can someone help me figure this out? Wondering if I need a new fuse??


Hello, depending on where the Horn is situated you may have corrosion on the terminals. It is quite common on Imports to have the horn exposed either under the front grill or fender. Be careful when removing connections as they may snap off? if this happens then your problem is sorted you'll need replacement possibly from a wreckers? Hope this helped?

I got a 2002 eclipse engine light is on took it to auto zone to get it checked but when they plug it up it gets no reading was told by a customer that there is a fuse to it wanted to know if that was true...


Hi there:
It really depends what the problem is, what caused the "Check Engine" to come on. It could be something really minor, but it also could be something more serious that needs to be taken care of as soon as possible. In worst cases driving with the "Check engine" light may cause more damage to the vehicle. If your check engine light came on, I certainly recommend to have your car checked out as soon as possible to be on a safe side.

If the Check Engine light is flashing means that the engine computer (PCM) has detected that your engine is misfiring. Driving with misfiring engine could damage your catalytic converter, which is a very expensive part. Often the misfiring could be caused by bad spark plugs and wires; if you haven't done a tune-up in a while, it might be a good idea to do it now for a start.

Yes, OBD link could be relaced with OEM parts with your dealer.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

BMW (e39 1999) eml and asc lights and in limp mode


Check the ABS brake sensors in your wheels, if they are not functioning properly. It will trigger the computer to engage the ASC auto stability control light as the asc uses the brakes to assist in control. I will also engage the EML engine management light to slow the rev point to limp mode

98 eclipse Engine stall but stars


Sounds like your IAC (idle air control) motor needs to be replaced. If you are driving on the Interstate/freeway/highway for a bit and then get off, the car dies when your coming to a stop right?
