Frequent questions

The most common doubts based on what the people ask us by chat.

Although it is a frequently asked question, it is not possible to use a Ford stereo without the required code, and this code is the only way to make it work again.

For some units, such as the 6000 CD, the process to enter the code is like this: If the first digit of our Ford radio code is 3, for example, we press button 1 three times. If we had to enter a 0, for instance, we would have to press the button ten times. We do the same with the rest of the code using buttons 2, 3 and 4. To confirm your Ford stereo code, just press button 5.

Locked warns us that the audio unit is blocked due to too many failed attempts. Radios in Ford cars get stuck after ten unsuccessful attempts. In this case, we turn on the radio and keep button 6 pressed for ten seconds. With this, you have another three tries, which if you run out, your unit will be permanently locked with the LOCKED 13 message.

"Wait" appears on display after entering a wrong Ford code. To get rid of this status, you must leave the unit on for 30 minutes (in some cases 60 minutes). After that, you will see "Code" or "Enter code" again.

All Ford stereo units have their serial number engraved on the rear label, which is visible only when the radio is removed. However, if the stereo model is a 6000 CD, SONY or 4500 RDS E-O-N, the serial number can also be seen on the screen by pressing buttons 1 and 6 or 2 and 6 (for the 4500 RDS model for example). See the exact steps here: How to find my serial number.

It is not possible to obtain the ford radio code from the VIN, reg or other number other than the serial number of the radio.

All stereo models manufactured for Ford Europe and Australia are compatible, such as 6000 CD, Sony, 4500 RDS E-O-N, 5000C, 3000, 4000, etc.
