Unfortunately, VIN number will not help us. We really need to get the serial number and the make.

The radio's serial number is on the left side of the case that is inside the dashboard. You will have to remove the fascia that is around the radio carefully to reveal it. In most models you can use a small dental style mirror to see the code without completely removing the radio. If you can't see it this way you will have to take it all the way out. Don't disconnect anything just pull it out far enough to see the numbers. The model number starts with MNxxxxx, this is not the number you need. The serial will be an 8 digit number, no letters. It will be close to the model number however.

If you already have the serial number, go to this website to get the code.

    Also review your owner's manual. When you purchased your vehicle, you should have been provided a card with the stereo lock code. If your car is pre-owned, check the glove box or under the ashtray for the code. The previous owner might have placed the code in an easily accessible yet discreet location.

    Alternately, you can call Mitsubishi
    Motors of North America at 1-888-648-7820, M-F 7am - 4pm Pacific time.
    They will give you your unlock code for free, and they are even very
    pleasant about it!

    Good luck!

Do you know what the code for the radio of a 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport.

The security code for your radio is specific to that radio. You can sometimes find the code for the radio in the owners manual, hopefully written in the back by a previous owner. If you have a separate radio owners manual it may give you a number to call to get the code. Otherwise, it may require a trip to the dealer. If the dealer is going to charge you, you may be better off buying an inexpensive aftermarket receiver.

The only place you can get the radio code if it is not in the owners manual is to call the dealer with the vin number and possibly the radio serial number.

I have a Mit. Montero Sport 1999

Your code is 4886.

Use preset button 1 to scroll through the first digit, preset button 2 for the second digit, etc.

Once the correct code is displayed, push the unlock button to unlock the radio. The unlock button varies between models, but it is always either CD, AM/FM, or TAPE. There is no penalty for pushing the wrong one as long as your code is correct.

Need code for radio

If it's the factory radio, you should be able to take the car to a Mitsubishi dealer. They will check the VIN and should be able to give you the code.
