I changed the battery and did not have radio code. can i get radio code. Radio S/N :TQ1 AA 032 9 38549


From your serial I can see this is an Alpine unit and I assume this radio is in a Chrysler?

Chrysler codes are not available for free anywhere on the internet. This is why I recommend this site which is cheap and reliable for Chryslers - click here.

I use them regularly for radios I repair. You will also need to supply the part number for the radio to be properly decoded as it appears to be an older unit.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I need the radio code for a 2000 ML 450 bought used and code card is not available. the vin # 4JGAB72E5YA179735

According to your requirement you have to purchase radio code or you can use car radio decoder software to decode your car radio. If you have experienced a dead battery, disconnected the factory radio harness or disconnected the battery to the vehicle then you must need radio code. Better to purchase a radio code. Before purchase determine of your radio type and do the following steps. The radio must be in LOC mode NOT in INOP mode. Turn the ignition ON. Press and hold presets buttons 2 & 3 or 1 & 4 for approximately 10 seconds. The radio display changes from LOC to a three-digit number. Write this number down. You will then have fifteen seconds max before the next step must be performed. Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one. You now have a six or four-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 3 and the last three digits are from STEP 5. If you have a four digit number, it will show all four digits at the same time. Then purchase the code mentioning your car model and unlock the radio. You can purchase your code from by credit or debit card.

Since i changed the battery the radio says 'safe' but wont work!

usually if a radio says "SAFE" then it is one of two things
1. a factory theft deterrant
2. a power spike tripped the internal surge protector (common if having battery or alternater problems)

here are some possible solutions for the respectively numbered problems
1.) google search (or whatever your favorite search engine is) for a factory reset code for your specific
radio manufacturer this may be model specific if your vehicle has the OEM (stock) radio then you
should be able to find the code by searching for (vehicle make and model) audio reset code or radio
security code

2.) remove the fuse for the radio and any aftermarket audio devices you may have the
power button on the radio (if it has knobs then turn it on for a moment and then back off) replace

Resetting radio after changing battery

Unfortunately you EITHER must take the car to the dealer and have them re-enable your radio at a cost.


Pull the radio a small ways out and write down the serial numbers. Also write down the VIN number of your car then call the vehicle manufacturer and they can give you the unlock code.

NOTE: You may wish to call the auto dealer first to ensure they are willing to do this to save yourself the hassle. This must also be a factory installed radio, the original. If this is an aftermarket radio please take the car to the place you purchased the radio and they can unlock it.

I have mitsubishi mirage 2000 my car stereo is antitheft it needs a code to go back on i bought used and cant get contact from the person i end up buying it from can you help me.

I recently changed the battery in my car, and now my radio display indicates 'CODE' or 'OFF' and the radio is not working. What do I need to do?

As part of the radio's anti-theft system on some older model year vehicles (2002 and older), the radio resets itself whenever it loses power from the vehicle's battery. Radio security codes are associated with each individual radio unit rather than the vehicle identification number (VIN) (since a vehicle could have the radio replaced). The radio security code must be input in the radio in order for the radio to work.

When you purchased your vehicle, you should have received a card that lists the four digit security code for the radio. If you are unable to locate this card (sometimes owners find it inserted in the Owner's Manual or glove box), the radio will need to be removed so that you can locate the Part Number and Serial Number for your specific radio. The Part Number typically begins with the letters 'MR' and the Serial Number is generally a string of digits and both numbers can be located on the audit unit's chassis.

Please contact your local Authorized Mitsubishi Dealer if you need assistance removing the radio. Once the Part Number and the Serial Number are in hand, your Dealer can access the security code for that radio. You may also contact our Customer Relations Call Center at 1-888-MITSU2011 (1-888-648-7820) and one of our agents will be happy to provide you with the security code and steps to reset the radio as long as you have the Part Number and Serial Number for your radio unit. Agents are available Monday-Friday 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. (PT).
