Default Radio Needs a Unlock Code?

hey guys, i got a friend who owns a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant, Her car Battery died, and after she got it jump started it runs fine. but now her car's radio doesnt work because it needs and Unlock Code? she said that the radio needs a 4 digit number to unlock it, in order for it to work again?

The first thing you need to do is remove the front face from the console around the stereo. After that, look at the stereo, there should be a label with a serial number on it. (I have an Eclipse and the label was right on top of the stereo near the front so I didn't have to unmount it, hope you're as lucky). Call your local dealership and they will ask for the serial number. I have heard that some places refuse to do this over the phone, but my dealership just gave me the code. Once you have the code:

1) Turn on the stereo (CODE should appear in the display).
2) Use the radio preset buttons 1-4 to enter the code (press each button enough times to cycle through until you get the correct digit)
3) After the code is entered, press the "AM/FM" or "CD" button (My Eclipse uses the AM/FM)
4) The stereo SHOULD come on. If you entered the code incorrectly, ERR1 will appear. Be careful...if you get it wrong three times, it will LOCK and you will be forced to bring it in to the dealer to re-program it.

Hope this was helpful.
