alright so I bought my 2000 Eclipse GT about a year ago from a dealership and when I bought it none of the electronics work until I turn the key to ACC or ON, and it has been a recurring problem since then. It's not much of a big deal , just a nuisance, seeing as how I can't save presets, and I have to reset all my settings. Also the clock resets, so when I'm driving I have no idea what time it is lol. Well I tried fixing it by checking the under the hood fuses and quite a few were either missing or not in the right place. I moved them back to where they're supposed to be based on the diagrams and now in order to stop it from running all the time I have to pop up the yellow box with the two 10A fuses. That's just to turn off the engine, with the keys out and everything lol. I do have an aftermarket Sony Xplod stereo that was in when I bought it, and it's wired for Subs but the dealership took them out. Any help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated!



And just to be clear, I have looked through practically all of the threads on this site looking for a solution on my own and this is my last resort before just saying screw it. Haha

Probably not wired correctly. The head unit should have two sources. A constant on (to retain memory, clock, etc) and a switched source that actually turns it on. My guess is whoever installed the aftermarket head unit just wired the two to a switched source. Your going to have to pull the head unit out and see how it is wired. Normally it's a yellow wire (I think) that gets wired to a constant 12 VDC, and the red wire to a switched 12 VDC.

Not sure about having to remove a fuse to shut the car off.

I'm going to look at that here in the next few days when it's not below freezing. But would this effect the clock pod and a few of the dash lights? My seatbelt light and brake light always stay on along with the clock pod and stereo. I'm also going to take a look at the wiring for the subs when I get a chance to check and see if I can tell what's gone wrong.
