Afternoon all,

Had a flat battery thismorning, called AA out who popped a new one in. Obviously this has reset the radio, which needs code to unlock it.

Just wana make it clear that im NOT requesting a new code here as i know that is forbidden. What im after is the serial number of my radio unit which i know is located on the unit..but i dont have the special keys in order to remove it.

Someone said that i could get the radio serial number to display on the unit by pressing the 6+1 buttons on the radio. I tried this and it scrolled through several combinations of letters and numbers...apparently the last set of numbers is meant to be the radio serial number. The last set of numbers/letters which displayed on my unit was ACU CFG 820108. But i thought the serial was meant to begin with either an M or V as my focus is a 2005 2.0tdci Titanium (sony radio unit). So is this my serial number?

cheers

No, as you said the serial begins with a V or M.
The keys are available on eBay for very little.

Halfords dont sell the keys needed to remove the stereo on my focus (its the Sony 6CD). So i spoke to one of their audio specialists who said they do have the keys but for Halfords use only, not for sale....so i slipped him a fiver and he removed the stereo for me which enabled me to get the serial number and therefore generate a new code online to unlock the unit:-) sorted
