Your Mitsubishi radio code should be on a red card inside your owner’s manual. If you can’t find it there, you’ll need your VIN, radio serial number, and radio part number in order to look it up online. 
Car trouble can be a total hassle, especially when the battery dies or needs replacing. After you take your Mitsubishi into the shop, pay the final invoice from your mechanic, finally get your keys back, and—what’s this? Your Mitsubishi reads “CODE” or “OFF” on your radio display screen. 
If this happens, you’ll need your radio code before you can get back to using your sound system. Otherwise, you’re in for some long and silent car rides. 
But don’t worry—

Why do I need a Mitsubishi radio code?

Your radio code is a part of your Mitsubishi’s anti-theft system. Whenever you disconnect or replace your Mitsubishi’s battery, you’ll be prompted to enter a code before you can use your sound system again. 
When you think of most-stolen car parts, a catalytic converter is probably the first thing that comes to mind. And you’re correct in thinking so, they get nabbed pretty often—but your car’s stereo system is also one of the most commonly stolen vehicle components. That’s where the radio code comes in: no radio code, no using the radio—and what thief would want to take a radio that doesn’t work?
That said, if you’re the one in need of the radio code and can’t find it, you could be the one stuck with a useless radio. Not to worry though, we’ll show you how! 

How to find your Mitsubishi radio code 

When you first purchased your Mitsubishi, it would have come with a small red card that reads “Anti-Theft System” and usually it’s usually fixed to your owner’s manual. Those four digits are your key to getting back to jamming out to your favorite tunes—once you enter them, your radio will unlock. 

How to look up your Mitsubishi radio code 

But, what if you can’t find your owner’s manual? Don’t worry, you won’t have to ensure a lifetime of silent car rides—you can still find your Mitsubishi radio code, but you’ll have to hunt down a couple of numbers first. 
In order to get your radio code, you’ll need three different numbers: your
VIN (vehicle identification number)
, your radio serial number, radio part number. On all Mitsubishis, you can find the VIN on your insurance card, on the dashboard near the windshield, or on the driver's side door jamb. 
How you get your radio serial number and radio part number depends on the year of your Mitsubishi: 
  • For Mitsubishis from the model year 2002 and earlier, you can look up the radio serial number and radio part number with this
    form
    .  
  • For Mitsubishis from the model year 2002 and later, you’ll have to remove the radio from the dashboard to get the serial number and part number printed on the back of the unit.
Now, with all three numbers ready to go, you’re now ready to get your radio so you can get back to your favorite tunes. You can find it using Mitsubishi’s
online lookup tool
or by calling 1-888-MITSU-2022.
