Can't remember my code.

I connected the stereo in my car about a year ago and I put a code on it, now that I want to change the stereo into my pick up, it is asking for the code and I cant remeber it. I tried many but I can't seem to get the right one.Would any one know if I could reset the code and how?

Radio needs code . ford focus 05


Hi i take it your going on about the security code for the stereo due to the battery being disconected, right now the problem you have is that the only place you can get this code from is the main dealers, so your going to need to take your car and owners documents and some id with you to your nearest main dealers so that they can give you the code.

but before you do that have a look in the owners handbook if you have had the car from new then their should be a piece of card inside the owners hand book with this code written down on, if you dont have this piece of card or you have not had the car from new then have a look inside the owners hand book and check if its been written down anywhere the usual place is inside or behind the front and back covers of the hand book so check their first.

The reason you can only get the code from the main dealers is due to security reasons, years ago you could just ring up and give them the reg of your car and they would give you the code over the phone, but they stopped this as thieves were nicking the stereos and ringing up with the reg and then they would get the code so to stop this happening all car newer than 10 years can only get the code if you take the car or owners documents and some id with you to your main dealers.
Dont ask the main dealer to put the code in for you as they will charge for this service just ask them for the code and ask them how you enter the code into the stereo if they say to you they will do it for you then just say to them your having some work done in a few days and will need to put the code in then and this way they will tell you the code without charging you to unlock the stereo for you.

so im sorry their is no easy fix but its all to do with security issues with stolen stereos

Free unlocking code for kdc w3037a


Unfortunately Kenwood codes are only available from the Main Dealer or by using a Radio Decoding Service who will connect a laptop to read the working code inside your radio`s memory chip (EEPROM)

Lost radio codes


Not familar with your car but I had same problem many years ago with a Vauxhall Astra and did same as you, disconnected battery and re-connected, radio didn't work - but my display kept flashing for security code to be re-input, which I didn't have.
Yours could be the same if radio not worked since disconnection - solution: if you dont have code & not in any documentation you got with car, then the radio will need to be re-coded by a dealer (expensive) or enquire with local car spares shops - they normally know a cheaper source. Mine cost about £18 (5 years ago) to get re-coded & I had to remove & reinstall myself.
