Most likely upon the power being unhooked if this unit was not equipped with a back-up power source or the back-up power source no longer held power then it could be that the unit has reset to a factory default code. Your best chance would be most likely to go to http://www.kenwoodusa.com/Contact/ and from there give as much information pertaining the radio's make and model to them and potentially explain whats going on. They could most likely be able to give you some idea's of what to try, or potentially give you the factory default code.

Another idea though is this. Was the radio working when you purchased the vehicle from them? Or did you not bother with testing it out to check that it works. It could simply be they let it go with the car because it no longer functioned for them, so it was of no use to them and they simply decided to let you deal with the issue.

Stereo wont come on


It's probably not a fuse problem. If you got a new battery or your battery went dead or was unhooked, that will make the Galant radio reset and quit working. You have to contact your dealer (or any Mitsubishi dealer) and get the radio code for that car from them. If they don't know you or have you on file as the buyer, you'll have to prove you're the owner. (It's an anti-theft device.) Then you put in the code they give you and the radio works!

Replaced stereo and loses presets???


Hi Welsh, It sound to me as if the constant live feed has not been connected or that the cables have been incorrectly connected. The set is fed with a constantly live connection which is live even when the ignition is off, thereby giving power to the memory circuit. I believe either that has been swapped with the ignition power on, or not fitted at all. Regards John

Stereo dont work


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.

Program a fob for a 1996 honda civic ex


If you still have the factory keyless entry for your civic, the stock radio is still located within the car. Most likely it is located behind the center console. There is a button on the radio between the AM/FM and CD buttons. Turn the ignition on without starting the car, hold the button down and push any button on the fob to program the fob.
