Question about Ford Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Have a ford escape that requires code input to get radio to work, have rang ford and given them the VIN number of the car. They have given me the code that should be for the radio but it would appear to be wrong. Is there any other options?

Hi, In need of a radio code for my ford fiesta 03 plate. Seriel no: m683890

If you have proof of ownership, A Ford dealer can probably help you with the code based on vin number. While I am not familiar with Ford vin numbers the number you have given is not likely to be the to be the vin number that is on your registration or the driver door mfg, plate. The Ford dealer will look up the vin on their system to find the radio code, most likely for free.

Radio code ford escape 2003

You need to take the radio out of the dash. Post up the serial number beginning with the letter M and I will give you your code.

If the serial begins with V this is a newer radio and you cannot get these for free anywhere on the net. I recommend this site for the newer V serials requiring codes. Its the cheapest and best around. Click here.

Hi I have a 2003 ford focus ghia, could anyone help me with the radio code? had to change a fuse now no music! please help asap thanx

You need to contact your Ford dealer for it. They will require proof that you own the car and may charge for providing the code, but it's usually free if you're a regular customer for sales, parts or servicing. usually they look up the code via your car VIN number but it can also be done using the radio serial number.

If you carefully check the original literature which came with the car, you'll often find the code written down somewhere. Sometimes previous owners will have written it inside the glovebox.

If the radio has been replaced since the car was made, then the VIN lookup won't work and the radio will need to be removed to read the serial number.
