    Car Radio Unlocking

    Car Radio Unlocking 7th Feb 05 at 7:43 AM
    Highly specific this one, but when you need it it can save a lot of money.

    Following a repair for accident damage my radio was left locked. On contacting the dealer I bought the car from I was told that they had no record of the radio code and that it would cost £25 plus VAT to get it for me (nice little earner for them this one, which I refused to pay on principle!).

    Anyway I went radioless for a few months, but had a trip to do and wanted the radio. So after a bit of a search yesterday, I found:

    http://www.dekodes.com/

    This allows you to enter your radio serial number and for a CC payment of £5.88 (this was for a Blaupunkt radio) it will immediately tell you the code. Worked very well indeed. You need to register and provide a 'company name', though I just put in 'no company'.

    The only problem I had was extracting the radio itself. In the end I found some help using a google search, but essentially there are 4 grub screws that I needed to extract using a tamper proof screwdriver bit (you can get a set of these at screwfix for £9.99, but probably an allen key would work). Removing these provides 4 holes into which you need to insert 4 small screwdrivers or similar (I used some wooden kebab sticks) whereupon you can pull the radio out by pulling carefully at the cassette slot.

    Hi everyone,
    I was just wondering if someone could help me get the radio code for my 2008 Ford Ka.

    The serial number is V018043.

    Thanks!

    Ford Fiesta radio model 3000 Traffic. MPD5DP303255 are the letters and numbers I found when pressing buttons 1 and 5 together and holding them down. Its a W registration with first registration in 2000. Would be grateful as I inherited the car from my old Dad who passed away a few months ago and the radio is probably worth more than the rest of the car!

    That is not the serial number.

    It will be a M or V followed by six numbers.

    Sometimes pressing buttons 1 and 6 or 2 and 6 together will display it. If not the radio will have to be removed to find it on the label on the back. It will be a M or V followed by six numbers.
