you  need to replace the speedo cluster!



EXACTLY the same thing happened on mine (Known as a Colt here in the UK)



its a fault somewhere on the printed circuit on the back of the clocks!

The problem is in the blue plastic PCB of the cluster. The Ign + trace will crack and cause your gauges to stop receiving power. This will happen where the PCB tucks into the tabs of the housing. You can find the crack(s, scratch to the copper, and solder them. You can also buy a new PCB at a Mitsubishi dealer.



The reason it quits with heat is because the traces expand and lose contact.

Expertise

I have been working with (and driving) a first generation Mitsubishi Eclipse for several years. Anything that could go wrong with an Eclipse has probably happened on mine. Fortunately, I have gained a lot of knowledge from experience in repairing these problems myself.

Experience

Identifying and repairing problems in mechanical and electrical areas. Plus, I have learned many ways to enhance performance to the incredible engine Mitsubishi put in their early model Turbos.
