Ordered mine pluged it in and it works on high weather the switch is on or off or anywhere in between I have a gt and guy told me at t the dealer p/n mr513289 would fix my problem any suggestions? ?
I also have a GT, but mine worked. However, I'm still trying to get the two screws back in. Removal was a breeze, replacement was a nightmare. After I changed mine my light on the a/c knob was blinking, so today I got something called EZ Chill to recharge my a/c system. It worked like a charm, but now my Low Side Schrader Valve bubbles. I'm thinking it must have a small problem or leak. *sighs* I still have to put everything back together, so I'll repost after that adventure tomorrow afternoon.

If I were you I would make sure to check fuses and what not. Yours sounds a bit strange comparing it to the rest of us. Post back.

I just registered on this forum to say thanks.

I just replaced the resistor in mine. i ended up using a rachet and a screw driver bit to get the pieces out. There really is not much room to work in there at all. took me an hour and a half, including a trip to home depot to get a small rachet. I also removed the motor for the fan in order to make some more room. I put it all back together and everything works!

Once again, thanks for the help.

Sorry for the thread necro, but I've got a 2008 Eclipse SE that seems to have a similiar problem as what's been described here, but I don't have any heat or A/C at any setting. I'm not a car guy, so could a blown condensor resistor cause this problem as well or am I looking at a different problem?

Blower Motor Not working

probably a problem in the switch or the wire harness or possibly a fuse or relay. if you are comfortable pulling you dash covers off you can look and see if you see anything, otherwise, you may be stuck w/ a trip to the shop.

good luck, wish I could be of more help.
I have a 2009 GT Spyder that started out intermittent where air/heat/defrost didn't blow out. After trying the knobs and switching between the settings, it came back on and worked for a couple months. Then it decided to go out again but fiddling with the knobs it came back on for a day. Now it is not working and will NOT come back on. The heater is working and the air conditioner is working just nothing blows out. Also the green "AC" light on the fan speed control stays on AC all the time and can not be turned off. I replaced the resistor (actually has transistor) pack and it started blowing air for a couple minutes. Switched the car off and had no air blowing, but the fan speed knob could be controlled again and you could push it in turn turn ac off/on. Next day, the fan speed knob that is push for AC no longer works again and just stay lit solid green AC when turned on. SO I am back to SQUARE 1 and desperate to get this thing fixed as we are having frost now! Any suggestions or advice on testing would be very much appreciated.

I had a heck of a time getting that screw to the left out. Took me about 25 minutes to get the screw out and 10 minutes to take everything else apart and remove the part. May be taking the fan out to get the part back in!

OK dumb question but should you disconnect the negative on the battery before you change the resistor? I just got mine yesterday and will install it tonight after work.

My symptoms were green light on 1,2 and 3 but no fan, blue light on 4 and the fan worked

I know this is bumping a topic that is very old, but I would like to hopefully contribute something so that this can continue to be a resource for future web users. I found this page through Google.com and would like to thank the original poster for all of his pictures!!!

My sister drives a 2003 Dodge Stratus SE (a coupe).

My sister's A/C quit. She told me she needed a new blower motor (probably advised by my dad) and asked if I could install it. I said yes. Decided to buy a new resistor (for a 2003 Stratus ... NOT the SE) at the same time, which according to Google searches is a common issue for this vehicle. I spent like 3 hours trying to figure out how to install the thing, comparing what I was seeing under the dash to diagrams I saw online and was SUPER confused!!! Where was the resistor? I got these parts from RockAuto, so I knew they were for the right vehicle... Right?

Anyways, some searching around revealed that the Stratus SE coupe is a rebadged Mitsubishi Eclipse, same with the Chrysler Sebring coupe. Meaning, the 2003 Dodge Stratus resistor I bought did not fit the 2003 Dodge Stratus SE (which required a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse transistor). Super easy fix once the part came.

Oh yeah -- I replaced the motor, nothing worked ... Double check the fuses... D'oh! There's a blown one. Should have checked that before buying the motor ... Check the fuses before you drop $45 on a new motor!! A/C and heat worked on setting 4 (high), but no others after replacing the fuse. I installed the new motor anyway, since I bought it already, and she just needed a new transistor.

Hopefully anyone trying to fix their heater/AC on a Stratus SE can find the info here!! Thanks guys.

I have the identical problem as originally posted by visionsaul, which is green light and AC working on fan setting #1, but blue light and no AC working on fan setting #2, #3, #4 while the fan blows fine.

This is the fix for the ac/fan problem. I too had the compressor work only on speed 1 and but the fan didn't work. Then the compressor turned off for speeds 2, 3, and 4 but the fan worked. I found this thread, ordered the part, and it was an easy install. The one of two screws on the piece itself was a pain to get too but as long as you have a 'stubby' phillips you should be good.

Had the same problem as many. Green light on setting 1 with no air and blue light no fan on setting 2-4. Found this thread followed the tutorial dude made and now enjoying ice cold a/c again.

Here's mine installed. New shiny resistor from Mitsubishi for $28. The right screw was relatively easy to get out/in. Used the smaller screwdriver as suggested. But that left screw was a monster to get out/in. Managed to get the screw out most of the way but couldn't get my thumb and index finger in to grab the screw. Not enough space at all. Had to have my girlfriend stick her tiny hand in there to unscrew and pull it out. To get it back in I had my girlfriend set the screw for me with a few turns then I managed to get it in the rest of the way with a small philips. Arm is now swollen/bruised from trying to get in such a tight spot but well worth it.

Props to the guy who made the tutorial. Made it much easier.

Subscribed. My AC went out for the second time in like 5 years but since I'm out of warranty, I'll be using Dookman's guide.

Sorry, I didn't post sooner to this thread. I wanted to let everyone know that on mine, it WAS the blower resistor. It is a $40 part from Mitsubishi. I also ordered one from discount Mitsubishi parts for less, but it took a long time to get. The dealer delivered it to my work in two days. The internet place took a week and a half. So you are better off getting it from the dealer.. it's quicker. Anyway, I had the dash apart for two days. (I followed the other member's directions for the most part.. thank you to him). This takes some time. There are a lot of bolts and screws. I put them all back in the holes with everything removed so that I knew where everything went upon re-assembly several days later.

One point I want to make is this: Make SURE you purchase this resistor from MITSUBISHI. I had previously gotten an aftermarket resistor 2 weeks prior and it did NOT work which really added some confusion.

Anyway, it is difficult to get to the resistor. I actually had to "feel" around to make sure I was onto the right part. It is up near the right side of the center console toward the firewall in the back (on the passenger side). As soon as I plugged it in and screwed it down, I started the car and adjusted the AC knobs. It worked PERFECT!! What a relief since it was 90 degrees that day and most of the week. Good luck to everyone with this issue. I highly recommend you take your time and do this repair yourself. You will save yourself some $$ from the dealership or local shop. :bigthumb:

Do somebody know the part number of the resistor? I only found for Eclipse 2008-2010 models. Is it same for 2007?
Thanks!
I replaced mine last night on my 06 GS and it fixed my ac issues and my blower issues. If you are looking for the resistor, not the transistor, it is available from your local advance auto parts and is part #RU944. cost is $32.99 + tax.

'07 Eclipse GS Blower fan doesn't work

I've read this thread a couple times and assumed the popular solution would work for my car as well. My fan blower works off and on. It seems to not work more when its really hot outside. But its recently gotten cold and the fan mostly doesn't work still. I can turn my a/c on and the green light comes on and the compressor comes on as well, but no air is coming out of the vents. No air comes out on ANY setting (1-4) with the a/c on or off. If I go for a drive sometimes the air will finally kick on after a couple miles. Other times it doesn't work at all. So I assumed my issue was the blower resistor like everyone else. I ordered the part and just installed it. It did not fix the problem. Anyone have the same issue or know what the problem may be? I've checked all fuses and everything is fine there.

2007 Eclipse GS No air coming out of vents

My problem is that no air comes out of my vents on any setting (1-4) with the a/c on or off. Sometimes when I drive for a couple miles then the air will finally kick on and work just fine. Other times I'll get in my car and the air works just fine from the start, but usually it doesn't work at all. The a/c light comes on like normal and the compressor kicks on as well, but no air moves. I assumed my problem was the same, and I ordered the blower resistor part and just installed it. The problem is still there and hasn't changed at all. Please help!

I've checked all my fuses as well and nothing is wrong there either.

I'm not sure which system you have, but on the GT all controls can be set in auto, all you have to do is adjust the temp. But I'm sure our controls are much the same.

COLD weather: Heater Postion the fan will not come on until the engine reaches opperating temp; in other words, the fan will not come on until the engine is warm, normally around 2 miles. Once your heater reaches its temp (Medium), the fan will slow down unless you increase the temp again.

Same thing with your A/C it will not blow cold air if the outside temp is equal to that of your setting.

But it's also possible that you might be having problems with your control knobs themselves. So you should heat your engine up and try your test on your controls again, and try to give us some more detailed information so we can narrow it down for you.

Longhorn, I encountered the same situation.Put a new resistor in and the blower didn't work. Happened to be a bad resistor !! It was purchased from Autozone. I bought a genuine Mitsubishi resistor from the online discount parts site, re-installed it and evertthing worked like a charm. So I'd recommend installing a new Mitsubishi resistor.
