I had taken the stereo from the gst and put it into the n/a, and i finally called to get the stereo code. Well i called one of the dealers ashal mentioned (thanks man), and got it. So the stereo seems to work fine but no sound is coming out of the speakers. Does anyone know if this is a general prob? Cuz the stereo itself works perfectly fine, when i put a cd in it reads it and all but no sound. I'll try to play around w/ it a little more today as well.

Any help is appreciated!

Did you make sure everything in the back is plugged in? You should check all of the wires and make sure they are matched up.

Yeah, I think that it might be a short in one of your wires. You should check to see if your wires have power in them.

Ashal(ashah000), a while back, posted a few dealers that will do this for you. I personally called Moran Mitsubishi (248-353-0910). The guy only asked for my serial # on the stereo and 2 mins later he gave me the code... FOR FREE!! Other places might ask for the vin too.

If its not a short maybe its a bad fuse?

If it was a fuse, power wire, or grounding wire then the stereo wouldn't turn on at all.
I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure that the stereo code should be under the stock player.

i guess that you used the stock connector of the car (the white one with all the cables for the speakers and everything), but don't forget to connect the one that goes to the amplifier under the passenger sit (is a black cable with a connector similar to the ones of the old pc keyboards) , if you don't plug that one you will never hear anything.
And if you cut the cables of the N/A to put the same "white" connector of the gs-t check the pingout again.

I've never used the one under the passenger seat and all of my stereo's worked fine. I was under the impression that it was for power seats or something like that.

UPDATE:

This thread is from a while ago but if you can beleive it i havent got it fixed! Yup ive been driving around with no sound for a while now. I have a question about something someone told me. I talked to one of my automotive instructors about this problem. The thing is before i put the code in i had tried several other times with random # and after the 3rd try it said error and wouldnt let me try any more, unless i unplugged the system and replugged it.

My instructor told me that if you entered the code wrong 3 times that the error would occur and it would burn a fuse so that the player wouldnt work whatsoever!

Has anybody ever hear of anything like this? Any help is appreciated!

Well my friend, I want to say that your auto instructor is wrong. Entering the code wrong 3 times will only "lockup" your headunit, then you would have to let it sit untill it resets itself again, but if it allows you enter the code again and you have entered the right code then your headunit will work.
One problem I see and it has also been mention several posts above, you said you took out the headunit from your gst and put it in a n/t. I believe the headunit in the gst is the "premium" system right, that means it has the double din headunit connected to an amp connected to the speakers. If you moved the headunit to your n/t without the "premium" system, meaning if the headunit isn't plugged in to the amp then it'll have no power to power the speakers, and that might be the reason you can't hear anything.

thanks for the reply wuman. hmm..... your explanation seems to be the problem exactly. So is the only fix to also transfer the "premium" part of the system to, or is there a quick fix i could do?

you can take the amp out of your gst and put it in your GS. Or get an aftermarket headunit.

I would definately go with the aftermarket head unit. You will notice an improvement and it will be nice and easy to use as well.
