    Eclipse Head Unit

    In January of 2002, my friend purchased a 1997 mitsubishi eclipse GS from a dealer, "prestige imports" of california. His car came with an aftermarket head unit from eclipse audio (not mitsubishi ). About 2 months later, in March, we removed his negative battery terminal when installing a new battery, And the cd player stopped functioning due to a security code and , all it said was help!, and then after 3 days went dead. We contacted prestige imports, and they said it would require reprogramming from the factory, but that you needed an original owners receipt to have it reprogrammed!
    Anyone have any ideas as to how i would go about getting this head unit reprogrammed?

    Thanks, Matt.

    Contact your nearest eclipse (NOT the vehicle, Eclipse car audio) dealer personally, they can help you with the ESN issue.

    Just bring the vehicle in and explain the situation, there will be a fee, but you will have a working head unit again.

    All eclipse head units have trackable serial numbers, after explaining the situation to the dealers, they can have the unit traced to guarantee against a hot item, at which point they'll agree to work on it when the situation is explained and the unit's history is traced.
