Ford Fiesta CD Radio Code

If you have lost the code for your Ford radio and the radio is showing CODE---- on the display there is a very cheap way to reset 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. Fast friendly and reliable service. Click here.

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.

i have lost my radio code for my ford can you help.


Late Four Digit Ford Radio Codes (no SELECT button) ie. Ford 3000 Traffic, 4000RDS, 5000RDS, 6000RDS, 6006E, etc Switch the radio on and the word CODE should appear in the display Repeatedly press button 1 until the correct first digit of the code is displayed.
Repeatedly press button 2 until the correct second digit of the code is displayed.
Repeatedly press button 3 until the correct third digit of the code is displayed.
Repeatedly press button 4 until the correct fourth digit of the code is displayed.
Once the code has been correctly selected on the radio's display, press button 5 to enter. If "LOCK 10" is shown on the display, please contact us for guidance. If the display shows "LOCK 13" code entry will not be possible, and the unit will need to be electronically decoded by a car radio servicing specialist. Early Four Digit Ford Radio Codes (units with SELECT button) ie. Ford 2005, 2006, 2015, etc Switch the radio on and the word CODE should appear in the display. If CODE does not appear immediately, press the SELECT button momentarily, and CODE should then appear on the display. Repeatedly press button 1 until the correct first digit of the code is displayed.
Repeatedly press button 2 until the correct second digit of the code is displayed.
Repeatedly press button 3 until the correct third digit of the code is displayed.
Repeatedly press button 4 until the correct fourth digit of the code is displayed.
Once the code has been correctly selected on the radio's display, press the "SELECT" button to enter. Three Digit Ford Radio Codes ie. Ford 2000, 2001, 2005, 2007, etc Switch the radio on and the word CODE followed by three dashes should appear in the display. These three dashes should be flashing. Enter the three digit code by repeatedly pressing station presets 1-3 until each digit is correctly displayed, followed by preset 4 to accept the code. The unit should then function normally. If, after switching the radio on, the three dashes do not flash, then 3 or more incorrect code entries have been attempted. If a number 10 appears in the display, then ten incorrect codes have been tried and the unit will need to be decoded by a car radio servicing specialist.
