When you are installing a new stereo or radio into your Eclipse, it can really help to have a Eclipse Stereo Wiring Diagram handy. The Eclipse has enjoyed a long production run that started from 1989 that spans four generations. Widely recognized for it’s appearance in the Fast and Furious movie franchise, the second generation Eclipse is still a popular modified vehicle.

Powered by the legendary turbocharged 4G63, the first and second generation Eclipse sport coupes have a similar single DIN setup. Because these generations also shared a platform and stereo system with the Plymouth Laser and Eagle Talon, you can use this Eclipse Stereo Wiring guide if you own those cars. If you are installing an MP3 player, CD player or aftermarket stereo, the car audio wiring guide on this page can help you get it done.

Today I’ll be showing you the car stereo wiring schematic for all years of the Mitsubishi Eclipse. We will begin with at the beginning as we do with all of our wiring How To DIY articles and car stereo guides.

First Generation Eclipse Stereo Wiring – 1989-1994

With it’s wedge shaped exterior and a robust turbocharged engine, the first gen Eclipse is still one of the best bang for buck modified cars available. Sold in AWD and FWD configurations, the center console is open and easily accessible for car stereo installers.

From the factory the Eclipse shares the double DIN setup with a single DIN pocket. If you are installing a stereo into the first generation you can remove the pocket to install a double DIN radio or navigation unit.

The first generation Eclipse Stereo Wiring can be accessed through the side kick panels, on the driver and passenger side. These panels also cover up the Eclipse ECU, so take care when removing your Eclipse radio. When removing these panels there’s just one screw to to hold these in place.

Second generation Eclipse Stereo Wiring – 1995-1999

Although the 2G Eclipse stereo layout changed slightly due to the interior redesign, the single DIN and double DIN setup remain largely the same. Like the first generation Eclipse radio, you can access the mounting brackets through the side kick panels. These panels snap into the center console, and the Eclipse ECU wiring is on the driver side. Take care when removing these panels, especially on the driver side.

The 2G Eclipse has 6×9 speakers located in the rear passenger panels, and speakers up front in the door panels. Removing and upgrading your speakers is easy to do.

If you happen to own a Eagle Talon of this similar year range, our Eclipse Stereo Wiring will also apply to you. If you are installing a double DIN stereo or a MP3 player, you can remove the single DIN radio pocket below. Shown above is the factory radio from Mitsubishi.

This generation was the last for the 4G63, which made it’s way eventually into the Mitsubishi Evolution. You can also install a car stereo amplifier into the trunk of your Mitsubishi Eclipse by running the wiring under the center console. Shown above is the factory setup removed for a double DIN stereo.

Third Generation Eclipse Stereo Wiring 2000-2005

This version of the Mitsubishi Eclipse also made an appearance in the Fast and Furious movie franchise, although without a turbocharged four cylinder engine. Powered by a 2.4 liter and 3.0 liter V6, the third gen Eclipse featured a completely redone stereo setup.

These changes to the interior of the third gen didn’t do much for the single DIN and double DIN fans however. Much like the previous versions of the Eclipse, the third gen Mitsubishi car stereo could accommodate the single or double DIN aftermarket radio.

If you are installing a double DIN stereo into this generation Eclipse, you may need a new mounting kit. Now we move onto the last generation of the Eclipse to finish our Eclipse Stereo Wiring schematic.

Fourth Generation Eclipse Stereo Wiring 2006-2012

The last version of the Eclipse is the only one you will need a stereo install kit. This is because the factory stereo is mounted into the center dash. Most aftermarket stereo installation kits will feature a plastic trim to replace the center console.

This generation Eclipse is the hardest one to install an aftermarket stereo because of this fact. It’s not overly difficult to remove the center console and climate control section however. Don’t forget that you will need an install kit to fit a single DIN stereo into your 4G Eclipse.

When you own a 4G Eclipse most stereo installers can’t find the factory amplifier. If you are installing a Eclipse radio but can’t find your amp, you are not alone. The Eclipse amplifier is located behind the glove box and will require you to remove this compartment to reach it.
