do not take the serial from a user guideNever take the serial number from any printed paperwork or user guides, since this may not match the actual Ford radio fitted to the car.  Instead, take the serial number from either a label or an engraving on the top or side of your Ford stereo, to ensure the supplied Ford radio code is accurate.


Note: The Ford 4500 RDS Unit found in late model fiesta's does not need to be removed from the vehicle to obtain the serial number, simply turn on the radio then hold down button 6 and tap button 2. The serial number will be shown on the display

Further information on decoding your Ford car radio.

Using our Ford radio decoding system, you are not only saving money, but also time and the hassle which is involved. Most vehicle main dealers require you to book in your vehicle and take the car and proof of ownership along before they apply for your radio code.
Usually the code will be based on the vehicle registration or Chassis number which can mean you are not getting the code for the current unit fitted to the car, especially if the radio has been replaced at any stage in its lifetime.

There are a number of reasons why a radio code based on your vehicles chassis number or registration may not work, these include:


At Radio-Code, we provide radio codes based on the unique serial number of your car radio, regardless of what it was fitted to originally.  Our radio codes have proven to be more accurate than main dealer's because of this.



What our customers have to say...

Just wanted to say thanks very much for the head unit as it works a treat and I finally have a car radio! I really appreciate all the help that you have given me. . Johnny


Thank you for my radio code ,, it worked first time ... Excellent service. Martin Gooding


. Monica Santucci


I just wanted to say many thanks for your excellent service! The code you supplied worked first time, and I have now written the number down in a safe place should I ever need it again. So please don't take offence when I say that I hope I will not personally be a repeat customer! I will however, recommend your website to any of my friends who find themselves code less, and at the mercy of their local dealership. Using your service saved me 8 pounds! My local Peugeot dealer swore blind that they were the only ones who would be able to supply me the code, and that the cost of 20 + vat was standard regardless of who I went to. Once again, many thanks.. Robert Wakeford


Hi thank-you for your replies ,ive left my car running for 4o minutes entered the code you gave me and got a radio playing in my car again thank-you very much for your help.Will definitely recommend you to my friends.thanks again keri sims.. Keri Sims


Steve, Just a quick note to say thank you for all of your help yesterday. You demonstrated that there are still people out there who actually know what they are talking about, and aren't just a set of 'Blaggers'. I should be sending the unit away in the next couple of days if all goes well. . Steven Hay
