    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.

    Code for Ford Focus 6000 CD player
    the dealership gave the car's previous owner the wrong code. I've looked online and it says to hold down digits 1 and 6 to get the Ford radio serial. When I do this, several sets of number come up so I'm not sure which is correct. Here they are...

    FB050102
    BL020202
    070019

    Could anyone please help me out with finding the code?

    Thanks

    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.

    Thanks for the quick reply... I'm going to have to remove the radio as 2 and 6 doesn't work. Will check back soon.

    Thank you G.Ayrton for the radio code. Unfortunately it did not work. When I removed the radio I noticed some stickers showing it had been repaired in 2006. Maybe this had some effect on the code?

    Thank you anyway for your help and time.
