    It's 3779. Can't believe the main stealers charge for that.

    cheers for that but thats the number i already had but it isnt working. It keeps coming up "Wait- 30 mins"

    Is there another way to find out the serial number other than the audio guide?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,720 ✭✭✭Hal1


    It sounds like the anti theft thingy has kicked in because the radio was incorrectly programmed 3 times (not sure how many tries it gives you). Only other option would be to disconnect the - negative on your battery for 30 minutes and try again. This might mean reprogramming your key fob though. :o

    i think i know what it is. The Audio Guide says radio model is the 5000 series but on my radio it says 6000 cd model. The radio must have been changed before. Ill have to take out the radio to check the serial number.....could i do this with coat hangers?:D


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,793 ✭✭✭chillywilly


    i just made radio removal tools out of coat hangers with the help of some wire clippers and pulled out the radio:D.....The serial number and code was on top!! Sorted!!

    Cheers for your help Hal!:)

    hi guys,

    sorry if this isn't allowed, had a look around but couldn't see anything.

    Is there any way of getting the serial number of a 6000 rds eon radio from a 00 fiesta without taking it out of the dash?

    changed battery recently and need the code to unlock the radio and i need the serial number to get the code... Or is there another way around this?!

    any help greatly appreciated,


    thanks

    Check your owners manual for the code, or it will have to be removed to get the serial number.

    Never got the manual with the car, thanks for the info though

    You definitly need the serial number. I had a 00 fiesta before and paid €50 to get the code. If you can get four long screws and stick them into the four holes it should pop out the radio and you can get the serial no.

    You could remove that radio with a coat hanger. You will need a pilers and cut two 15cm lengths of it into this shape. Pic here. They will fit the two holes on each side of the radio.

    take out the ashtray and look underneith it the code sticker could be there or behind the interior light pop it out and the sticker could be stuck up there.

    If not pull the stereo out like was said above and ring your Ford dealer and give them the info they need off the side of the radio they shouldnt charge you for it if they try to just ring another dealer.

    Jesus 50 euro for a radio code--We dont charge at all.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,720 ✭✭✭Hal1


    There is an 'APP ' that someone posted here a while back that gives you the code once you enter the serial. These threads are 1 a month now. :p


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,070 ✭✭✭ScouseMouse


    Pull the stereo out and on the top should be a number starting M........

    Post the number here.

    We will get you sorted.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,638 ✭✭✭zilog_jones


    I paid €30 in a main stealer for the code for my Fiesta radio. Then a few days later I noticed the code was on a sticker in the boot, just underneath the lock :mad:

    Not sure if this is a common thing or just something a previous owner did (I believe the car comes with a sticker or two with the code on it).
