Hello! You will need to contact a Mitsubishi dealership and provide your VIN, and possibly the S/N of the radio. They will then be able to tell you the default lock code.


Thanks for using FixYa!

My Eclipse Car stereo has a lock code on it AVN 7000 and I bought it from a Lady she didn't know the code she never got it from her can you help me I have all my info who I brought it from.


the esn is only active if the previous owner activated it. the user would of used a CD to be a key cd and that is how they are unlocked. if the cd is lost or damaged, Eclipse can give a code to unlock it. However the original owner needs to have registered the deck with eclipse and have some kind of ID like mother maiden name. there is also a second registration that can be done. which an eclipse dealer can do, it is for used cars with eclipse radios, and things like that.
They can be real strict sometimes about giving out a code, and the authorized dealer has to be the one calling, and somtime that means a lot of time on hold.

Lost radio code


Radio lock out codes are security related, and each code is unique to the car and the radio in that car, and that unique code was supplied with the original paper work when the car was delivered to the original owner to discourage theft, so they are not published on the internet, if they were what would be the point?? any thief could get the code after stealing your radio. Contact the dealer for instructions and what info u need to get your cars unique radio code. The dealer will require the serial number off the radio and proof of ownership of the car it came from.

Hi, i have 2002 mitsubishi eclipse... I had to change the battery, and now my radio locked... i dont have a code #, could u help me to unlock it?


Call the dealer and ask if they can help you with the code and procedures. Your owner's manual should have the procedure listed in it but the code should have been in the papers that came with your car when it was new. Again the dealer is your best bet. They will need your vehicle VIN and maybe even the radio serial number.

I had a starter relay problem on my 2001 Eclipse. Now my factory radio wont work. It asked for a code and I typed in a few random #'s and now it says OFF and wont work now. Do you know how I can fix this?


That's a bummer. The factory radio has a anti-thief device that keeps the radio from working if the wrong code is put in too many times. When this happens, the radio is on lock-down. No more codes can be entered.

Only the dealer right now can only unlock the radio for you. They can get the correct code by the serial number on the radio. But, you still need them to remove the lock-down in place.

My car radio was locked after I changed the battery. It's now asking me for a code and I don't have a manual. can anyone please help?


Is this an eclipse radio? If so you set the security with a specific CD you can put that CD back in and it should unlock. The radio is designed to lock if power is lost while in security mode. You may be able to get it unlocked at your local stereo shop but sometimes you need to prove ownership before they will unlock it

2001 mitsubsi eclipse enter car radio wrong code 3 times


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).

- you will also need to provide the serial and part number of your radio (takes about 5 minutes to take apart an eclipse dash...1 screw in the bottom of the HVAC panel) if you call the 1888mitsu2001 it will provide basic instructions on how to accomplish this.

- if your radio says "off" (meaning you entered the wrong code too many times) you need to put your key in the ignition and turn it to ACC mode for approx. 45min - 1hr and then your radio will say "code" at which point you can enter the code to unlock the radio.

Eclipse 5440 head unit locked


There is another solution to the radio being locked up you can try,,, If you look REALLY hard under the volume knob of your radio on the front there is a VERY small reset button. This worked for me last time, if this doesnt work then try calling them. If there originally was NO code number entered than this will work. Good luck, let me know how it turns out.
