Not unless it was written down in there by the oridginal purchaser so you will have to write VIN# down and phone the dealer and they will be able to give you the code along with how to do this also it must be a factory sterio hope this helps

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!

1995 mitsubishi galant will not engage in any gear but park does keep it from rolling. Would this be because of the torque converter?

You have a 7th generation mit galant. These are great cars but they have one major weakness; the auto transmision dies. Generally you have to have the trans rebuilt or many owners swap ion a manual trans. There is a great web site for owner's of the mits galant. lots of great information about galants to include hwo to swap the auto trans for a manual. You want to go to and scroll down to 7 generation section of the forum Galants are great cars; I own 4 of them, all 7g

I own a Mitsubushi/Galant, battery died and was replaced. The radio requires a code and I am unable to remove the radio...what should I do????? All I need is the code and instructions as to how to enter?

Hi, the only place you can get the code from is the main dealers the problem is you have to take the car to them as they wont give the code out over the phone in case the stereo is stolen. So it is a pain their is no where else you can get this code from as they never publish them anywhere but the plus side is they dont usually charge for this.

But before you go their have you checked the owners manaul as if the car has had work done on it before and had the battery removed then you might find someone has got the code before and if they were though full they would have writ it down in the owners manual if not then the only option would be to go to main dealers. Make sure you write this code down in case you need it in the future ok.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

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.
