Ford radio code

The majority of manufacturers, including the Ford brand, secure the factory radio or car navigation with the use of a code. Paradoxically, the security, the aim of which is to protect the car radio from theft, can cause many problems to the vehicle owner.
In many models, disconnection o the battery cause the blockage of the radio and display of the “Enter KeyCode” message on the radio display. In order to restart the radio, the user needs to enter a 4-digit PIN code. This password can be found on the Key-CODE card provided with the car radio instructions. The problem arises when such a code is lost.

How to recover the radio code?

Regardless of the car model, the easiest and fastest way to recover a radio or navigation code requires reading the serial number. Each radio code is assigned to a unique serial number stored in the device’s memory. The serial number (SN) is also printed on the label glued on the radio casing. The radio code cannot be read from the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number).

How to get a serial number without removing the radio?
Reading the serial number without removing the radio requires activation of the radio service menu. The serial number will be displayed on the radio display by simultaneously pressing and holding (approx. 3 seconds) buttons: [1 and 6] or [6 and 2]. Among the displayed numbers, the user will also see the radio serial number. Exemplary serial number of Ford radio (6000cd and others):

  • M series: M133675
  • V series: V095844
  • Travelpilot navigation (Blaupunkt): BP--------, C7--------

Note: in factory Ford radios (produced by SONY), the serial number can be displayed in the following format: SN: SOCD1XxVxxxxxx

Another method of receiving a serial number is a little more difficult. In order to read the serial number from the radio housing (photo), remove it from the dashboard. Depending on the model, special keys may be required for this purpose, but ordinary tools are usually sufficient. The serial number can be found on the label glued on the radio casing, and in the latest models (with a separate radio display), this number may be on the inside part of the radio (casing) panel. Having a serial number, you can generate a 4-digit code necessary to start the radio.

Free radio code generator

Knowing the serial number (read from the display or label on the radio), practically all models (including 6000 CD, Sony) can be unlocked with the use of special programs – decoders. These calculators calculate the radio code encrypted in the serial number by performing a series of mathematical operations based on appropriate algorithms. Decoding older models of Ford radio (serial numbers: Mxxxxxx) is not a big problem. In newer models with the serial number beginning with the letter V (Vxxxxxx), the radio was secured with the use of a different algorithm.

The list of popular Ford models, where factory radio is protected by code (V-series):

  • Focus – starting from the 2nd generation (Mk2 facelift)
  • Fiesta –from the 6th generation (Mk6 since 2005/06)
  • Mondeo –from the 4th generation (Mk4)
  • Fusion – produced after 2005
  • Kuga – all generations
  • C-Max – models after 2006
  • S-Max – all generations
  • Transit – produced after 2006 and 2007
  • Radios Visteon, 4500, 5000rds, 6000CD, 6006e and SONY –produced after 2005 and 2006.

Unlocking the V-series radio requires the use of appropriate software or reading the code from a special database. The full database contains 1 million unique serial numbers and corresponding codes.
