What is a Sony Radio Code?
A radio code or also called keycode is a 4 digits number required to activate a Ford Sony radio after a car power loss. Normally this code is provided by the dealer when you buy the car. If you can't find it, you can unlock it online by providing your Sony unit information.
Find your Sony serial number
There are two Sony radio models, Sony MP3 and Sony CD132. Depending on the model you have, there are two methods to obtain the serial.
Ford Sony MP3
This radio is normally equipped on recent Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo models. To get the serial, power ON the radio unit and press and keep pressing the buttons 1 and 6 for few seconds. Several types of data are displayed on it. Wait around 16 seconds before your serial is shown with this format: SOCD6XV123456. Note that only the final part (V123456) is your serial. Be aware, your serial will be displayed only for a few seconds.

Once you see the sticker, copy your serial which starts with V or M letter followed by 6 digits. Example: V110390 or M930990. This is all you to retrieve your Sony radio code using our generator.
