    Hi everyone. So im having a weird electrical issue that is affecting my idle a bit. I recently replaced with an ACDelco reman alternator and it was running so clean until after my first 60 mile road trip. Here's the symptoms. At idle, my fuel pump is obviously oscillating causing somewhat...
  3. Problem Reports
    I've got something going on with my Eclipse 4G, and I can't figure out what it is. I'm trying to avoid taking it to a shop and blowing 500% more money than what the repair is worth on mechanics time and repairing parts that aren't the problem. So I thought I'd ask here first. Here's the deal...
  4. Audio & Lighting
    My car didn't come with the center console power outlet. So I removed the tray and found the wires. I got a universal power outlet and the positive fits in fine but the negative won't fit in the slot given. I was wondering if there was any other to connect that piece. I can't post pictures...

    hey guys, after running my a/c for abut 45 minutes today the fan stopped. I turned the car off and let it sit for 15 minutes and it started back working. everything else works fine, you can hear the idle drop when ac is turned on, no flashing lights, all the fan speeds work when it does work...
  6. Eclipse Performance
    Hi everyone, I've creeped these forums for a couple of years since getting my Eclipse for ideas on what's working for others and what I should avoid. About a year ago I saw both the AWD Eclipse that's been created and a video on a Civic Type-R with in-hub electric motors on the rear wheels to...

    Have a 2012 (final month of manufacture) GL Sport 2.4l Auto that has a very strage electrical issue. The battery warning light starts to flicker within minutes of driving. The whole dash, lights, CD player, everything will flicker, sometimes all going out for a second, sometimes will settle down...
  8. Problem Reports
    2007 Eclipse GT. Just recently I've been experiencing frequent (but not always) low engine idle speeds when stopped. RPM's hover just above 0 -- it stalled once, but only once. But sometimes it idles fine. I've noticed that the low idle RPM's seem to coincide with what sounds like the AC...

    What's up guys? As you can tell from my pics, I have an aftermarket Blackout-3 front bumper from AIT Racing (close up pic of bumper is attached). Unfortunately, I can't figure out a way to get my stock foglights mounted in it (trust me... I've tried everything lol). My foglight wiring/internals...

  11. Problem Reports
    My 2006 eclipse door locks have stopped working, but only when the car is off. The fuel gauge has also stopped returning to E when the car is off and jumps around a bit when the car is turned back on before reading the appropriate level. Additionally the rear hatchback button now only works...
  12. Problem Reports
    I just noticed that when I put my key in the ignition and turn it to on my doors don't automatically lock anymore. Any clues why this is happening?

    So I had this wierd turbo noise like it's down spooling can't figure out what it is. Just so everybody understands unless somebody snuck in and turboed my naturally aspirated eclipse I'm pretty fucking sure I don't have a turbo. Needless to say the down spooling turbo sound has got me baffled...
  15. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hopefully you guys can understand this but the two plastic pieces that are underneath the front bumper basically guarding the front half the engine from I don't know dirt I guess. Do any of you actually still have that on or are they even needed? I only ask because on the way home last night I...
  16. Tuning and Electronics
    After a family emergency with my Grandmother passing away, I've been able to get back on the horse to start working on my car again. I bought glowshift's triple gauge pod along with a wideband gauge, vacuum gauge and a 12 volt battery gauge. Then we lost a coworker at the automotive repair...
  17. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Just recently started happening. No loss of power or codes being thrown, which Sabertooth said intake leaking would throw a code really quick. I have an OBD2 device in the mail to check live data with the car running, but here is a video of it happening. Only happens above 4.5k RPMs and gets...
  18. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hello 4g guys, I may be looking at buying me a 4g in the future and wanted to ask the owners some questions and specifics about the car. I will be looking only at 2012 GT 6 speed cars, yellow with leather, and sun and sound package. Under 50k miles. Nothing else. The car will be my toy/weekend...

So i jump started it with another vehicle and it ran fine while connected but then once i took the jumper cables off it runs...

    I thought my bulb had just burnt out, so I was going to replace it today, but then noticed it was actually just really dim. So first thing I do is try swapping it with the passanger side, same issue, so I know the light is fine. I check the wiring, turns out that the previous owner wired up some...
