How to get my Ford radio code?

  2. The code used to unlock your radio will be displayed instantly.

How do I find my Ford radio serial number?

  1. On the front of your radio, press 1 & 6 simultaneously.
  2. If the serial number still does not show, try pressing 2 & 6 instead.
  3. Your serial number should now be displayed on the display.

If you are unable to retrieve the serial number from the display, you will need to use Ford Radio Removal Keys to be able to access the label on the top. Ensure that the curved edges face the center when using these. Using the wrong way will cause them to get stuck in the slots.

How to enter my Ford radio code?

Please note that it is important that the radio is fully plugged into the car when you enter the code. Some radios are known to reject codes if they're not connected in the car.

  1. On the front of your radio, press the '1' button until the first digit of your code is shown on the display.
  2. Repeat step 1 for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th digit of your code.
  3. Finally, press the '5' button to apply the code.
  4. The radio should now be operating as normal.

Is my radio compatible?

This website will generate codes compatible with the following radios: Ford 6000 CD, Ford 4500 RDS EON, Ford 6000 CD RDS, Ford Sony CD132, Sony CD3XX, Ford 4000 RDS and Ford 5000 RDS. There may be others, but as long as your serial number starts with an 'M' or a 'V', then it will probably work.

What about radio codes for other vehicles?

I'm working on coding the algorithms for other radio codes. If you have access to algorithms or code lists, please contact me at

Around November 2019, Google decided to rank this website high on the search results which means a significant increase in traffic. I now get between 10 and 20 emails a day asking to help unlock various radios. I am unable to help in every occasion, feel free to email, but please don't expect a timely response to these requests.
