Question about Eclipse 5440
I really wish they would pass a law to retailers regarding this issue
The problem is that "code" is only available electronically inside the actual radio
With the original owners manual and paper work that came with your vehicle
that being said... if you go to your local Jeep dealer and tell them your situation and PRAISE the Jeep product they may hook up the scan tool and retrieve the code for you for free
Tell them that if you have to spend $50+ to retrieve the code you will just go buy an aftermarket radio

1. First, you need make sure your stereo is off, then hold down the 1st & 6th preset buttons for the radio while turning the stereo back on.
2. A batch of 8 numbers (your stereo's serial code) will appear for about 20 seconds. Write them down.
3. Contact your local honda dealer and let them know you need the 5-digit code to unlock your stereo and then give them the 8-digit serial code you got from the 2nd step. They will give you the 5-digit code that you can then enter into the stereo by again turning on the stereo and pushing the according preset buttons.
4. The stereo will give you 10 tries before it locks you out as a saftey feature and then you will have to wait an hour or disconnect the battery and try again. Hopefully you can enter the code in fewer than 10 tries anyway.
