Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I purchased a Montero Sport JA4LS3IH8XP011871 from a Government auction. When I got the car battery was dead. I got a new battery started the car turned on the radio with no problems. Did'nt use the car for about three weeks, then I had to jump the battery to start the car. This time the radio did'nt come on, instead, it's requesting a code. Can you give me the code for this particular car, or tell me how I can get the code.

My best solution is to go to a dealer. Unless you can track down the previous owner if they put the code on there. The dealer is going to cost a little, otherwise you can just try a few simple ones, if it is still a factory one it is probably a simple code like"0000" or "1234". Good luck. I would definately go to a dealer or depending on how much the dealer costs and how good that factory radio is, just buy an aftermarket one, it is probably more expensive but it might be a better choice in the long run. I hope I could help.

Hi my radio is locked due to dead battery and i now need the coda however i dnt have a manual as i bought the car 2months ago off the auction. My serial number is M186662 please can i have the code.

Welcome to FixYa.

The problem with these security codes is that each radio carries a code that is unique and individual to the serial of radio itself. There is no master code for these radios.

Ford will charge £25 for supplying you with this code and this is why I always recommend this site which does them for only £5.99

Simply enter the serial details on site and you will have your code sent right back to your email or mobile phone. I use them regularly for radios that I repair and can confidently recommend them.

Hope it helps. Many thanks for using FixYa.

Installing an aftermarket radio in a 2001 montero sport, and can not get power to the radio. The only piece not plugged in from the old wiring is the small black plug (it looks like an "S" cable...

That almost sounds like it had a stock amplifier. Did you purchase the correct wiring harness? If you ordered one for your vehicle and didn't specify that it had an amp, it won't take that into consideration, and thus no way to plug it in. Check to see if a harness is availble for your vehicle. Hope this helps.

Where is the fuse for the break lights on a 2000 mitsubishi montero sport

Hi there,

Locate the "Engine Compartment Relay box" in the engine bay. Inside, you will find a Dedicated 15A Fuse (fuse # 8). Your brake switch is connected to this fuse.

Have an alpine radio. twice, it has gone dead, will not turn on, power up,etc first time, battery went dead few days later and when recharged radio came back. have has some electrical troubles with...

sounds to be a drain of sorts. Do you have a good ground to the radio? If so the radio may be sticking open in the switch circuit and blows the relay buzz fuse and then after the power is removed the ciruit resets itself. If this is the case there is a dead short inside the radio

Radio code for montero sport

The dealer can give it to you if you come in with title, registration, and photo ID. They may charge you up to an hour's labor to do this, so make sure they write it down and show you how to enter it.
