How to find the car radio code for my Ford?

Published on September 18, 2023

Your car radio may lock when the battery of your Ford is changed. To unlock it you need a four digit code. If you have lost your car radio code or if the seller didn't give it to you, we can retrieve it for you.

How to unlock my Ford car radio?

If you don't know your car radio code, your car dealer can find it for you. However, many drivers complain about very high prices at their dealership. At CarGroov we can retrieve your Ford car radio code at a very low price. We only need the serial number of your car radio. That's all!

What I need first : the serial number of my car radio.

How to find the serial number of my Ford car radio?

There are two ways to find the serial number of your car radio.

If you are lucky, the first method will work!

All you have to do is simultaneously press buttons 1 and 6 or 2 and 6 on your car radio. Data will be displayed on your screen for about half a minute. Wait until the serial number is displayed. It usually starts with the letter M or V and is then followed by 6 digits (for example M217382 or V921828). You can also find another type of serial number which starts with C7E followed by 14 characters.

Note that we can't retrieve all car radio codes! Only if the serial number starts with M, V, or C7E.

If the first method does not work, then you'll have to remove the car radio from the dashboard in order to read the serial number on the sticker.

If I can't find the serial number in the menu, I need to remove the car radio and read the sticker.

How to remove my car radio?

If you can't find the serial number of your car radio in the menu, you need to remove your car radio from the dashboard.

You will find many tutorials on YouTube. Here is a short compilation:

As you can see, you may need some extraction keys (or this type) to remove your car radio from the dashboard. Once you've removed the radio, take a picture of the sticker or write down the serial number. You need it!

By removing my car radio I can read the sitcker and get the serial number that I need.

It must start with M, V or C7E for CarGroov to be able to help me 🙂
