Hello, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for providing my radio code. I left my lights on and had a flat battery which made me call out the AA to get me running again , then after I tried my radio it asked for the code I was confused until I came across your website. it was so easy to use and was so very reasonably priced, I removed the radio got my serial number and then in less than five minutes had my code from you, it went in strait away and my radio is back to normal. I had contacted ford who wanted me to book my car in for them to do it and receive a hefty bill. no thanks.. Radio code uk came to my rescue, 10 out 10 . what a great site .. thanks a million regards Steve Lindsey . Steve Lindsey
