Put the key in the ignition and set it to "accessory" setting and leave it there for about 45 minutes.
After that remove the key and put it back in and you should be able to enter the code again.

call 1888mitsu2001, choose option #4, then hit * (star). give the operator the last 8 numbers in your vin and they will provide the radio code for FREE!

DO NOT PAY FOR THE CODE ONLINE OR GO TO THE DEALER (they will also charge you).

- you will also need to provide the serial and part number of your radio (takes about 5 minutes to take apart an eclipse dash...1 screw in the bottom of the HVAC panel) if you call the 1888mitsu2001 it will provide basic instructions on how to accomplish this.

- if your radio says "off" (meaning you entered the wrong code too many times) you need to put your key in the ignition and turn it to ACC mode for approx. 45min - 1hr and then your radio will say "code" at which point you can enter the code to unlock the radio.

SOURCE: radio reset

If you don't have the code, you probably will have to pay a dealer to get it for you. My dealer said it was on the back of the radio and he had to remove it to find it. I have no idea if this is true.

As to the other problem of entering the code 3 times, and it now showing "off" instead. Simply put your ignition in the accessory position for approximately one hour. "Code" will magically reappear.

This applies to the 2000 Gallant. My code is 7357 if you wish to try it.

2005 mercedez benz 350 slk radio will not come on


Hi Gennea, If the battery runs flat and the radio looses its anti theft code it must be input again before the set can work. The code may be written into the user manual, if not you may have to visit an agent. Regards John

I have a 2003 mercedes ml 350 I need to type in security code but I cant type the code in because it says wait


  • When you get a message that says "wait" it is because the wrong code was entered incorrectly. Each time the word "wait" appears the wait is a little longer. The radio must be on during this "wait" time. When it goes away then enter the code correctly and you will have no problems.


  • Hope this helps.

Muted on display no sound comes from radio


This happened to me just last year! I removed the battery connection for about 5 min and replaced it. Fortunately, it didn't ask me for a radio code when I put the battery back on. What ever the problem was, it reset itself and the mute is now unstuck.

It's the old power down and reboot solution. Works every time!

Thanks and good luck!
