Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The only possible source of the security code would be:
the vehicle's manual wherein the number is attached as a sticker; and/or
the dealer. You may need to prove ownerships.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME, I'M A SINGLE MOTHER AND DRIVE AN HOUR BACK N FORTH TO WORK EACH DAY. MY CHILD HAS SOMEHOW GOT MY RAIDO IN LOCK MODE.. CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO TAKE IT OFF AND RESET THE RAIDO,...


  • Possibly a phillips screwdriver
  • Possibly a dental mirror
  • radio-code.jpg Step 1:
    If you see the radio of your Mitsubishi speaking "OFF" or "CODE" while you turn it on you have to unlock its anti-theft feature. If it is the case then turn the key to ACC for about 5 minutes with the radio on, as well as displaying "OFF". After passing 5 minutes the radio will automatically turn itself off. Now you have to turn the key off and after that back on again. The radio ought to now display "CODE".
    But if it isn't the case you the require detaching the battery for 5 minutes, and then go over the 5 minutes radio on displaying "OFF" with key in ACC until the radio automatically turns itself off as it is supposed to do. Now if it says "CODE" move to step 2. Keep in mind that the radio has to show "CODE" to enter unlock code.
    Step 2:
    It usually happens that several people have radio code but could not find them.
    Earlier than moving toward step 3 you first have to observe your car owner's manual, and glove box as well.
    Often a car is sold along with a small business card having the unlock code on it. It may be in the owner's manual slip cover, or otherwise between the pages, or in the glove box. You can easily find it in these locations if not tat it must be there in your car's paper work, finding it on your own will probably save a lot of time.
    The radio code is usually a 4 digit number such as 1304, 0897, etc. and it is individual to the radio's serial number, not the car's VIN number. So the VIN will not helpful in this way. The next step will let you enable to find the radio's serial number.
    Step 3:
    In most cases the radio's serial number is found on the left side of the case that is inside the dashboard. It is then required to remove the front that is around the radio cautiously to disclose it.
    In the majority of vehicle models you can simply make use of a small dental style mirror to watch the code exclusive of fully taking the radio out. But if are unable to see it you have to bring it out. Avoid cutting off anything and just pull it out enough to watch the numbers.
    Usually the model number begins with MNxxxxx, which is not the number you require. This serial will be an 8 digit number, having no letters at all. Mostly it will be similar to the model number.
    Step 4:
    After acquiring your serial number you can then call Mitsubishi Motors of North America at 1-888-648-7820, M-F 7am - 4pm Pacific time. In return they will provide you with your unlock code for free.
    DO NOT PAY ANYONE FOR THIS CODE IT IS A FREE SERVICE!!!
    Step 5:
    Once you got your unlock code you can use it by following some specific steps although Mitsubishi motors will also let you know about this procedure but you can easily understand it here. There are four buttons named 1,2,3,4 on your radio toggle up only ranging form the digits 0-9. In this way 1 preset button is the primary digit holder, and so on for the 4 digit code.
    If you happen to go very far you have to just keep pressing the button, and it will let you get back to 0, and eventually to the right number. For instance if your unlock code contains a 0 in it you should press the button one time to get to 0. It usually begins with a dash (-) which is not taken as 0.
    For example if your unlock code is 0873, in this case you will have to press preset 1 one time, preset 2 9 times, preset 3 8x, plus preset 4 4x. When you enter the correct number in the display, next press the "CD" button, and it will result in unlocking your radio. But if you did not insert the right number it will display "ERR1? sooner than going back to the "CODE" display. Try to do I in first other second attempt if you could not then things will become more complicated.
    // Tips & Warnings:

    • There are some local dealerships that intentionally want to charge for this code. As it is provided by Mitsubishi motors for free so don't pay anyone for this code it is a scam obviously. These people call the same number given above in the article and obtain the code for free. Although they made several people fool and got about $75 for a FREE service.

    • This is the same matter nearly with all types of vehicles that if their radio locks the car's manufacturer presents the unlock code for free.
    • There are some web sites as well that offer you to send the unlock code for a fee and do the same thing, but charge anywhere about $15 to $35, for an absolutely FREE service.
    • Once you have got your radio unlock code write down it to a clean paper and keep it with you in your car to use it next time if the radio get locked again.
    • However this free service is not provided with cars 2003 and newer because it was a bad idea at all which makes it free of cost.
    • If you are required to remove your dashboard panel or else the radio, be very cautious. First see how the panel is attached, plus avoid forcing anything. Verify that you have taken out all the mounting screws, and make use of a small and thin screwdriver to slide the mounting tabs loose, and hold panel pops up at the base where they tend to slip into the panel as a result you don't pull the pop out of the panel rather than the dashboard base.
    • Avoid entering random numbers while unlocking your code as after 3 failed attempts the radio got another lockdown mode, and unlocking it becomes complex.

    Lost radio code for mitsubishi galant


    Well your in for some hurt if you don't have the code in your owners manual. otherwise you'll need to remove the radio and get the serial# off of it, then contact a mitsubishi auto dealer and either pray the parts guy will do it without charging you or the dealer will usually hit you with the minimum charge I'm seeing $86 as the going rate on the net. My local Mitsubishi dealer **** Norris Mitsubishi in the tampabay area will do it for free for there customers according to there parts department but they stated they would not provide the information over the phone for others out of the area. The code apparently varies by serial# so its not one code for all.

    Need 1998 montero sport radio reset code


    GETTING THE RADIO SERIAL NUMBER: <BR>
    2000 - Carefully take the front panel off that surrounds the radio and temperature buttons, it will snap straight out. Wiggle the radio out about two inches, it is a tight fit. Get the serial number off the radio. It is on a sticker on the top, left side. Call a Mitsubishi dealer with the serial number. They will want proof of ownership, so have the title ready. After putting in the four digit serial number, hit the cd button and that enters it.The code is also written on an antitheft card that comes with the car and may be written in the owners manual in one of the back pages.
    <BR> 1999 - Carefully remove the cup holder by pulling it out, then you will see the sticker with the radio serial number.
    <BR> Other Years - I don't know an easy way to get the radio serial number, find a radio install savy person and ask them to help you. My dealership said they would do it for me and charge me for 30-60 mins worth of labor.. (At $75/hour) <BR> <BR>
    RADIO SAYS "OFF" OR "LOCK": <BR>
    Leave the "off" display on for 1 hour uninterupted, then it will automatically reset back to UNLOCK CODE.
    <BR> When you turn it back on again after that time has passed it will ask for "code". <BR> <BR>
    RADIO SAYS "UNLOCK CODE:" <BR>
    Call your local MItsubishi dealership and ask for the service department.
    <BR>They have a computer program where they punch in the serial number from your radio (you have to supply the number) and it will tell them the UNLOCK CODE for your radio. My dealership offered to give it to me free over the phone, if I knew my radio serial number. Enter the code using the buttons on your radio. And write the code down, this will show up everytime your radio looses connection to its power source - the car battery.
