The code should be in your Owner's Manual, if not go to the dealer and ask them for the code, don't pay for them to give you the code.

How do you reset the monitors for the evap and oxygen on a 2008 cobalt

You need a scan tool, or you can disconnect your battery, but disconnecting your battery can lock your stereo if it is the factory stereo. If you don't have the code to your stereo, a $50.00 scan tool at AutoZone is cheaper than paying the dealer to unlock your stereo.

How do I change a starter

Remove the battery's negative terminal

Take note of wiring connections on starter, then disconnect it's wiring.
Take out the two location bolts, and then remove the starter.
Installation is the reverse of those instructions.

Note: Before removing the battery negative lead, turn off any alarm systems and be sure you know any security codes for the stereo if it requires any as you will reset it and will need the codes to boot it up again. If you are not sure if it requires any code, then you will need to provide a separate battery power to the stereo by splicing into it's power and earth leads before disconnecting the main battery.

I want to reset a stereo of chrysler town and country 2010

Most modern OEM stereos require coding changed to accept an ipod. Dealers can do this so can decent garages. To reset the unit try disconnecting and reconnect the battery but be prepared to lose learnt data, this means the car may require a re-learn / drive cycle afterwards

Cd jammed won,t eject


Try pressing repeatedly the eject button on the on dash player while turning on the stereo at the same time. If that does not work disconnect battery terminal for one minute to reset the electrics and try again pressing eject repeatedly on startup. Make sure that you have the stereo anti theft code if needed before disconnecting the battery.

If that does not work, then the unit must be disassembled. The car stereo must be removed from the dash. The unit must be disassembled removing screws at back and bottom and undoing metal casing clips. That will reveal the CD drive allowing to remove the disk.

I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 hemi. I have to replace the EGR since erasing codes numerous times has not helped. Do I need the PCM flashed after replacement? Thanks

Hello! No, not at all...After you change the EGR, disconnect the + battery terminal for 3-5 minutes...Reconnect...And if the EGR was the cause of the fault the code will clear...Make sure you have the stereo code...If not, connect a regular 9 volt battery to a cigar lighter plug (pay attention to polarity)...Plug it into the cigar lighter socket before you disconnect the battery...It will maintain power to the stereo...Guru...Saailer

Need code number for 2000 mitsubishi eclipse to turn radio on

this is quite a common fault which i hear, the only way to obtain the code is to hope the previoous owner or the person who fitted stereo is wise enough to write it down in your handbook. if it a factory fitted stereo then the manufacturer keps a log of it and will provide it to you for a small fee.
