    You could probably get one from the manufacturer, or a generic multi-brand remote might also work.

    The manufacture may charge you an arm and a leg for a remote. You may want to check ebay, or check out some universal remotes like Penguin Man said.

    do standard universal remotes have codes for car audio? Did not know that, don't think they do.

    If so, then great! if not, get your credit card and call the mfg...

    Car audio, I dont know. Some may work, but it's hard to tell. I, myself, in most cases would prefer an original remote rather than a universal. I used to work at sears and i remember someone saying that one of the mitsubishi remotes was $80 from mitsu. I could be wrong, it wont hurt to check with the manufacture.

    If you want to be creative, get a learning universal remote and go to a store that sells that unit and has a remote on display, then teach the codes to your universal. But a universal may be pretty big to keep in the car...a thief might think you have a big screen poping out of your dash or something...lol
