How do you reset the antitheft radio for an 1999 Oldmobile Alero after the battery died?
There should be a factory reset code in the owners manual of your car. It should be located under the radio heading.If you are not the original owner, The first owner had the option to change the code so no one can use it if it was stolen.In this case, you will have to take the car to the dealer or you can take out the radio and get the serial number off the back and the dealer service department should be able to give you the factory code over the telephone so you will be able to change it back.

Your 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse battery died when I jumped started it the radio display read OFF The radio will not power up Although it responds to the onoff button by making the display cut on?
The radio has an antitheft feature that locks the radio any time battery power is lost to the unit. You will need the security code to unlock it.

How do you remove the dash board and console to access the radio on a 1995 Mitsubishi Diamante or is there an easier way to access the radio?
The owner's manual as well as the Workshop Manual both state that three consecutive incorrect attempts at disabling the anti-theft system will render the radio inoperable and that it must be replaced. This is absolutely not true! There is a very simple procedure which will restore your radio to operability. It does not involve removing the radio and requires about 30 seconds to complete. In the past we had chosen not to publish the code…
What is wrong if the starter clicks but won't start if the radio works so it can't be the battery and it has a new starter?

I've just installed a new car radio, and even though it is switched off (and the face has been removed) with the rest of the car completely off, the battery is flat 2 days later. You have a dead cell in the battery or something else is on draining the battery. A radio that is not on will not drain a battery in 2 days or even 2 weeks.
