Notes: NOTE: Jeep vehicles that use a gray ignition key have an immobilizer system that needs to be bypassed when remote starting. Use DEI part number 555C or 555U. *1 Use orange/black and pink/black at the drivers door lock switch to lock and unlock the drivers door. Use orange/purple and pink/purple at the passengers door lock switch to lock and unlock all of the other doors. *2 The dk. blue/pink will flash the hazard lights. They will flash even with a latch input to the wire. The parking lights can be activated by using a 1300 ohm resistor to ground on the yellow headlight wire. *3 Use a 330 ohm resistor to ground for headlight activation. Use 80 ohms to ground on the same wire to operate both the headlights and parking lights. *4 There are 4 separate door triggers wire, one for each door. Use all 4 wires and diode isolate each together. The drivers door is tan/red at the drivers door lock switch. The passenger door is tan/red at the passengers door lock switch. The drivers rear door is tan/orange and the passengers rear door is tan/yellow at the BCM. WHEN USING A 455J INTERFACE MODULE, IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO USE THE SEPARATE TRIGGER WIRES. USE THE YELLOW WIRE AT THE UNDERDASH LIGHT FOR DOOR TRIGGER. *5 Factory alarm disarm requires a 463 ohm resistor to ground on the wire at the drivers door lock switch, you MUST use a relay. *6 The 4.7L motor has a separate coil for each cylinder. Go to any coil and use any wire that is NOT dk. green/orange. On the 4.0L motor use any of the tan/stripe wires at the coil pack, or go to one of the fuel injector and use the wire that is NOT dk. green/orange. *7 Can also use DEI part number 455J door lock interface control module. This will control door lock, unlock, arm, disarm, dome light supervision and more.

In my 2003 Galant, I was trying to replace the radio, which still works, but I wanted something new. After noticing that I'm not getting any power to the radio I checked the fuses but they are good....

Did you check all of your fuses? There should be two fuse boxes, one under the dash somwhere or in one of the kick panels and one in the engine compartment.

If I disconnect the battery to reset the check engine light, will I need to reset the code on my radio? If so, where do I get the code since I bought the car used.

If you have a radio that is "anti-theft", you will need to enter the radio code after a sustained power loss. You can find the radio code in the owners manual. If you don't have the owners manual, you will need to contact a new car dealer with your vehicle information.

I just bought a 2005 Honda civic type s and the stereo is locked, i have pressed buttons 1-6 and power and have the numbers U3003L1390, can you please help, ...

I discovered a very easy and FREE way to fix your radio. Make sure your radio is OFF. Hold down the preset buttons 1 and 6 at the same time. Turn the radio on and your SERIAL NUMBER will appear. 4 numbers first and then 4 more. Write them down (obviously) then call (800) 999-1009. Make sure you have your VIN number handy because they will ask for it. They will ask for your name and approx. mileage, and your radio's serial number. They will then give you your radio unlock code -- WRITE IT DOWN....hope that helps
