Hi Gino,
I can help you with this.
Please do not try to input any codes until we are ready, as the radio will lock itself worse from incorrect codes.

This is a 97 Montero full size, not a Sport is that correct?

Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Great. We are going to need to get some information off the radio itself. There is a white sticker on the chassis of the radio that will have a model number (MR######) and a serial number listed on it. I need both of those number exactly as they appear on the sticker.

Access is not too hard on this model. Looking at the radio area you will see the surround panel is all one big piece. There are two philips screws in the top of the panel going up into the dash; remove these two screws and you can then pop the panel off.
With the surround panel off, you will have a pretty decent view of the radio to read the sticker... if you can not see it still, there are four philips screws holding the radio to the dash, you can remove those and slide the radio out slightly for a better view.

Get those numbers to me and I can get you a new code for the radio.

I want to know, after the Code ,U will give to me,what button to press to enter that Code
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

The unlock button varies by radio, but it is always a program button... meaning either PROG, AMFM, CD or TAPE. There is no penalty for pushing the wrong one as long as your code is entered properly, so most people just try one after another.
For a 97 Infinity radio it is usually TAPE, though.

But of course we need to get the code entered first, which means we need that information I requested off the radio sticker.

The radio is in the car,I won't be able to reach the sticker. Is the sticker in the back of the radio
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Did you get my diagram showing the trim bezel coming off? This is necessary to get to the radio. If we can not get that information off the radio, I can't get you a code.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I only can see the front of the radio. Is it possible, I can send U a picture for the front of the radio,M.Doug
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

The front of the radio won't help. We must remove that trim panel I sent a picture of and get the radio accessible. There is nothing on the front of the radio that will help at all..... again if we don't get to that white sticker, we can't unlock it.

What I will do ,I will take the radio off one day,and I will contact U. What do U think. Is it ok
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

That would be fine Gino.
I will be here for a few hours yet tonight and I will be in to work tomorrow as well. Whenever you are able to get those numbers or even a photo of the sticker etc just post it here and I will get back with you as soon as I see it.
