Radio Code for Ford Focus

If you have lost the code for your Ford radio and the radio is now locked and asking for a code, there is a very cheap way to decode the radio and have it back up running in no time at all.

Ford themselves charge £20 - £35 for this service but you can get this code here for just £3.50 with an absolute guarantee to work or your money back from this site. These guys specialise in Ford Radios only and I have used them on several occassions myself without a single problem.

By using this site you are verifying that you are the owner of the radio. This information is already in the public domain and you are entitled to it.

Most manufacturers nowadays have tied their radios to both the serial number and the VIN (vehicle identification or chassis no.) of the car they are in. This makes decoding more difficult and of course improves security. However as the legal owner of the radio it also means you are tied in to Rip Off dealership charges!

Ford however is an exception to this rule in radios up to year 2007. The absolute majority of these Ford Radios can be decoded by serial number alone and this removes the difficulty and requirement for dealership help.

First you will need to remove the radio from the dash and you will find the serial number on a sticker on the case. This begins with a letter which is followed by 6 numbers..

Example M123456 for M series radios

or A123456 for A series radios.

Only later Ford Radios (from around 2007) with a V prefix cannot be decoded via this method and the Ford dealership must be used for these at a much higher cost as stated.

All other serials with A,C,L or the most common M letter prefix can be decoded cheaply as outlined.

If you found this information helpful please do leave a vote for it.

Many thanks.

Need master code for radio in a 2000 ml320


Regretfully due to reasons of theft or piracy we do not pass the radio codes here at FixYa. If you contact your local Mercedes-Benz dealer they will give you the 5 digit code. (You must have your registration and know the complete serial number of the radio)
