    Try going to a dealer, especially if you have a relationship with one. Some BMW specialty shops may know how to get your code also. Hope this helps.

There is no way of hacking the code, call the dealer with the serial number of the car and offer proof of ownership, there should be no charge.

Radio code

take the radio out and write down the serial number reistall the radio and take the car to a mitsubishi dealer and they will give you the code after showing them the serial number and that you are the registered owner of the diamante. i have done this many times even with honda. they might want to charge you for the code but dont pay beacuse they usually do this service for free.

Disconnected battery on my 2004 Saturn Ion to replace the starter and activated the radio theft deterrent feature. Pressed radio button 1 and 2 and the code 2566 appeared. I called my local GM dealer and...

Unfortunatly,unless you have it written down in the owners manual that's where you have to go. I think a personal appearance might help your cause. But GM charges unless you go dirrctly to parts and ask for the manager.

Is there a sticker anywhere on a 99' Mitsubishi eclipse that has the radio code or is there anyway I can get the serial number without removing the radio and if I have to remove the radio how do I do it?

there is NO sticker for the code on the radio.if you havnt got it,you will have to have the radio recoded by a specialist or some dealers put the code into the makers service mainframe so you will have to PAY for the code.if you enter the wrong code it will die for 12 hours if left on.also there is NO default code number.the code came on a bit of card in the service book.but some bright sparks take it out to pis... us off.(nearly ALL cars have coded radios now)do not buy a radio unless you get the code and are sure its the right code.......(ebay,etc).would like to be more helpful but.....

Car radio

Firstly check the service book. There was originally a card in that with the code on. Check the radio book if you have it. Personally, i write the code on the radio, so maybe pull it out and have a look.
Failing that, you can pay peugeot about 30 quid to release the code to you if you have the car!

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).

Mercedes radio unlock code

The only way without removing the radio and paying for code search is to go to your Merc dealership with the Log Book/Title proof ownership/identification they will be glad to give you the required code.
Good Luck!

After a major repair, the radio on my 1998 Chevy Malibu is locked. I'm aware that there is a code to unlock the radio. However, the dealership will charge me about $45 to "unlock" it. My stock...

look up the manufature of your stereo once you find that look and download the users manual for it. it should tell you how to unlock your stereo if you forgot your code. Or send me the specs and i will do it for you.
