Ford Radio Code Generator
All radio codes are unique and not generated by special software, they are static and do not change during the radio’s lifetime (unless manually re-coded). The original code is assigned to radios when manufactured.
Example: To generate a Ford radio code you first need the serial number for example “M123456” (Visit our Ford page to find your serial) the only code that would work for this radio is “2487".
The decodes we provide will always be the original for your system.
In some very rare circumstances codes do not work, this is due to being manually re-coded in the past. This is done by connecting a computer directly to car and overriding the system, doing this without the specialist knowledge will lock your radio system. Having your car manually coded is also expensive averaging over £60.
