Hi,
Is the radio still original or has it been replaced with aftermarket?
Are there any modifications to the interior otherwise (LED lighting, GPS etc)?

No...all factory
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Thanks.
When the fuse pops, are you aware of -anything- identifiable that is occurring? Hitting a bump, using a visor, turning the radio up.... anything at all.

No. It was working fine both times. Get in the car the next time and it doesn't come on.
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Hmm.... I don't really have much to go on. Generally speaking when this happens we'll see either modification (like an aftermarket radio and the wiring isn't secured properly) or the ability to cause the fuse to blow like by operating a vanity light etc.
Without any obvious areas to look like modified systems and completely random/unattended popping of the fuse, there isn't any really positive direction to go here short of unplugging everything on the circuit and then plugging things in one at a time until the fuse pops again hopefully narrowing it down enough to isolate the issue.
Is there anything else noteworthy about the situation, like any recent water entry or any maintenance/repairs prior to this occurring initially?
