Question about 2004 Ford Focus
I need the pin code for the radio cd on my 9/2003 ford focus c-max. I don't have a serial number for the radio as it is incorporated into the dashboard. I only have the serial no of the car: WF0MXXGCDM4K666421. Thank you.

Unfortunately you need the serial number of the radio in order to unlock it. You must remove the radio from the dash and you will find the serial on a sticker on the case. There is no other way round it as the serial of the car is not relevant with these Ford radios unlike some other manufacturers.
For European Ford radios the serial begins with a letter then 6 numbers e,g M123456.
It is this number you must find in order to have the code processed. The radio can be removed from the dash with special tools which you can obtain from the likes of Halfords for around £5. Halfords staff will usually be happy to assist if you need them to pull the unit out for you.
This diagram illustrates the radio removal process for the Ford Focus.
There is no other way to decode the radio. Even Ford themselves need the serial of the radio to retrieve the code but will charge £20 to £35 to provide this.
One alternative is to use this site which does the codes for £3.50. I have used it a number of times for these Ford radios and they are very reliable and cheap compared to Ford.
Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

the dealer is the only place to get that code and they might make you prove the car is yours
