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.

Many thanks for your prompt and efficient service put the code in last night and the radio is back up and running.. Gary


Great service Thank you. Radio restored within 5 minutes of receipt of code. Local dealer was to be more expensive plus a round trip for me of 90 miles. I would recommend you to any of my friends who require such a service . Edna Simpson


Just a note to thank you for your superb service yesterday. Having (mistakenly!) gone to one of your competitors for a code for my Becker radio I was sold a code number, which did not work. I was assured that the number was correct & my radio must have been recoded & would have to go into a workshop for recoding at even greater expense. Fortunately I called yourselves before following this route & was provided with the correct number, saving me much time, trouble & money. I know where to go in future!! Many thanks again.
