2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Q&A
2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Question: Wire harness short-circut.
This a tough job to estimate with out seeing the car. Sometimes the harness can be repaired, sometimes it needs to be replaced. Damage may be limited to the harness only, or components connected to the harness can be affected. - Bret Bodas
As Bret said hard to quote with out seeing the extent of the damage and if wiring was modified for stereo, alarm, additional lighting ect... Fuses and fuse links should have protected most circuits. A new wiring harness is the most favorable option. If that is financially not viable perhaps a trip to a wrecking yard or looking on line for a wrecking yard that specialize in Mitsubishi you may be able to get a wiring harness from a car of the same year and equipment level to your car and splice in the needed harness using solder and "heat shrink" to properly restore the wiring. - patrick mannion
