1999 Mitsubishi Radio unlock when stuck in "oFF" mode. I found this somewhere else. So many had the answer but with not all of the variables. Sometimes the CODE is written on top of the radio, or you can go to the dealer with proof of ownership and they will get the radio code from your VIN #. Your radio probably says "oFF" right now because you probably tried three different codes that were wrong. Remember you must hit the "TAPE" button to engage the code. After 3 wrong tries, the radio will go into off mode. You will need to leave your key in the first position with everything off except for the radio, in 2 hours or less the radio will change to "code". you can now put in the code that the dealer gave you. If it says "ERR" after you try the code that they gave you----do not try again !!!! Remove the radio and bring it to the dealer or you can write down the letters and #s from the top of the radio and the dealer will have to get you the radio code from those #s. Migaleenne..p.s. Have fun taking it out!

How do you Fix your radio in your 1999 SLK230 that is stuck in WAIT mode?

You need the 5-digit code for the radio. The system locks when power has been disabled or the radio removed from the vehicle. Call a MB dealership. I have the same problem with my '99 SLK230. I know the code too. The book says if power has been interupted and the code has been entered incorrectly more than 3 times, the system will lock itself out. However, the book also says that once the radio is on again it should reset itself in 10 minutes or so. I have let my car run with the radio turned on for more than 30 minutes and it didn't reset so I could enter the code. Now, does anyone know how to fix this?

Was there a recall on the ignition of a 1999 Chrysler Sebring JXI convertible?

Don't know...but there are problems with the ignition lock tumblers wearing. Quick fix for a stuck key is to tap the lock while trying to turn the key. This will allow tumblers to fall into place so the key will turn. This fix will get you home, but not fix the problem. To fix permanently, disconnect power to car, remove dash trim below the steering wheel and remove enough screws to lift upper dash around steering wheel to expose key lock. Turn key to on position and depress tab in lock cylinder collar and pull lock cylinder and key out of car. Take lock cylinder to locksmith for new tumblers ( it cost me $12). Replace lock cylinder and put dash back together.
