Having problems with your 2002 Mitsubishi Galant ?
Car radio does not work recently after getting new battery It asked for a code ... I tried a couple... now it says OFF
Here is the answer to the best of my knowledge. This applies to any\015\012body that has the need to get the code from the dealership and requires\015\012to pull out the radio and look up the serial number. The process is\015\012very simple, just follow these steps and you'll be on your way to\015\012listening to your radio again. First of all don't think you need to\015\012unscrew anything. The wood panel sorounding your stereo snaps out by\015\012pulling on it or using a flat screw driver at the corners. Once you\015\012have taken the panel out, you can see that the radio is held in by 2\015\012hooks. Push up and pull forward slightly. You don't have to pull out\015\012the entire radio because you can see the serial number on the top\015\012surface very easyly. Write down the number next to where it reads s/n.\015\012Once you have the serial number, call the local dealership and give\015\012them your serial number. They will in turn give you a four digit code\015\012number that you will enter on your radio. One thing to note is that if\015\012you have entered the wrong code number 3 times, your radio would lock\015\012up and it would read "OFF". To unlock it, simply park your veichle in a\015\012safe place and leave the radio on for about 1 hour (no engine running\015\012just click the egnition switch to operate the radio). After one hour,\015\012the radio resetes and will aks you again to enter the code. start\015\012entering one number at a time using the first 4 buttons. Example, if\015\012your code is 4538, you would push button 1 four times to get to the\015\012number 4, you would push button 2 five times to get to the number five\015\012and so on.. After you have entered the correct code, push the cd button\015\012and there you have it. I hope this helps.
When you say "accessory on for one hour" what do you mean? Let the radio stay on for one hour with the OFF in the display. I have the code but my radio says OFF now that I have had the alternator replaced.
