Ok man, the same thing happened to me when I put in my system. Don't enter in the wrong code more than three times because the radio will shut off and it will be no good trust me I did it. I was going to put in a new radio anyways I just had to do it a lot sooner than I want to.

Re: 97 galant radio code

hey guys, i did the same thing, i tryed to enter the code 3 times, and it locked. You can unlock the radio by leaving your keys in the ignition and turning the ignition to "on" or maybe its "acc" not sure which. Leave it there for about one Hour and the radio will go back to the "code" stage.

I retrieved the code for my radio by getting inthe phone book and writing down all the Mitsubishi dealers phone #'s. I then went down the list until i found one that transferred me to the Parts dude. He was nice enough to just take my SN and give me the code.

Thumbs up Resetting Mitsubishi Radio Code after 3 Times, and Radio is Set for "Off"

Hey Everyone... I am new here to the Automotive Forum, but Wanted to Post a reply based on the 97 Galant Radio Code Problem. I searched on Yahoo for a resolution to my problem about the Radio Code, and it directed me to this Forum. I had the Same Problem today with my 97 3000 GT, and decided to try it, and it Worked, just what rainfever said.

So I guess, if you have a 1997 Mitsubishi Galant or a 3000 GT with a Stock Radio, this Trick works great. I forgot my Radio Code, but found the Card with the Code later on after I tried to input the code and failed. So, what I did was This:

1. Put the Key in the Ignition and put it to the "On" Position
2. Turned the Radio On, and the "Off" Prompt was Showing on the Display, then I walked away from the Car for an Hour.. Exactly 1 hour
3. I came back, and the Display was Powered on Still, but no Message. I then Powered the Radio Off, and then powered it Back on, and it Prompted me for the Code again

I input the Correct code, and it worked fine... no doubt if I had taken this to the Dealership, they would have said "it will take an hour" and charged me for the hour while I waited in the waiting room.

Thanks Again, and I hope that from reading these Posts that no one has to deal with going to the Dealership to have their Radio Reset
