Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse
I had a new battery installed, and now my radio code doesn't work,nor my clock or CD player. It worked before they replaced my battery , so what's wrong?
Did you enter the code correctly? Typically you would power it one, and when you see "code" use the first 4 preset buttons and just toggle through each one (0-9) to choose the right codes and then hit tape. Like someone said, you may have to take it to the dealer to override the lockup, or call the Mitsubishi number for further instructions. See this link: Mitsubishi Owners Radio Codes Mitsubishi Motors

A bit of info....if you try to enter codes three times, you radio will go to lock...as far as I know, only a dealer can help you with that problem...

You will have to call Mitsubishi for the code if it's not in the Owner's Manual (like my wife's wasn't). Call Mistu with the VIN# and Serial# of the radio at hand.
To get the VIN number, check the bottom of the front window.
For the Serial # from the radio: Remove the two screws under the center console. There is one on each side of the console (you may have to lay on the floorboard to see them clearly). Then pull out the two air vents from the center console (this will help you get a good grip for the next part). Hold the edge of the top of the console and the air vent for either side and pull it towards the rear of the car. I had to wiggle the console pretty vigoursly to get both sides out. Be sure not to pull it too far from the dash right away because you'll need to disconnect the hazard light switch prior to completey removing the console cover. Once that is disconnected you can safely move the console cover. This will expose the mounting braket. There two screws on the side of the mounting braket for the radio. Just unscrew those and you can remove the radio and see the serial number on top of the radio (you may also be able to see it if you just look in the space above the radio while it's still in the mounting braket but I wanted to make sure I had all the numbers/letters correct and didn't have to go through this again). Just do everything in reverse (don't forget to plug the hazard light switch back in!) to get it all back together.

Call 888-648-7820 which is the Mitsubishi "hotline".
What they'll need from you is 2 sets of numbers located on the radio. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver and a butter knife. Underneath your radio you will see 2 screws, take those out and life up the plastic cover that surrounds your radio. Take the butter knife and gently pull out your radio. On the top of the radio are a bunch of number/letter codes. Just write them all down and call the number above. You will be on the phone for maybe 5 minutes giving the person your information, but at the end you will have your code!
I had to do this when I bought my Spyder. Hope I helped somebody!

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.
