This just worked for me. Leave the car ignition and radio on but engine off, first position, for 2+ hours until it says code. Hold the preset 6 down while pressing the volume and power button at the same time to turn it off. Keep holding the preset 6 button. Then while still holding the preset 6, push the volume and power buttons again and that should solve the radio problem.

You have to have a dealer or authorized repair facility contact the mfr to get the code. you will more than likely need proof of ownership.

I unhooked the battery and upon replacement of the battery the radio is not working


If the stereo has CODE written across the screen you need to enter the security code which is usually on a plastic credit card style card which is found in the owner service and manual pack. Or it may just be written somewhere in the pack.

if it was a shop that installed it, they unhooked the battery for sure, the next time you start it, turn the key to the on position, and wait for the lights in the instrument cluster to go off, about 45 seconds or so, then start it

2008 Mitsubishi eclipse radio not working after battery change


Unfortunately in newer vehicles, they sometimes need to have the computer re-flashed IF you unhook the battery with the radio on. It's a crummy deal. The dealership will probably have to re-flash the computer. You could try turning the stereo off, then disconnect the cables on the battery for a minute, then re-connect and POSSIBLY it could reset the system and it may work again. Don't get your hopes up, this may not fix it.

Stereo is asking for code


That means it needs a pass code to be entered to operate. It is a security feature to deter theft of the stereo.

If you do not know your pass code, check the user manual for a factory default one.
If you cannot do that, then try this to reset it;

Put key in the ignition and turn to "run" do not start it.
Leave it in that position for 30 minutes. Check to see if it is no longer prompting you for a pass code.

Theft system


unhook the battery for about 15 minutes and hook it back up... that should reset it... if your stereo is anti-theft as well... make sure you know the code for it and how to enter it.

Looking for 96 Honda Civic Radio Code


You just have to go to a dealer and get one, they shouldn't charge you for it. Every time the battery is unhooked the stereo will need the code again, so try and get them to give it to you and not just put it in for you.
