Finding the Serial - Ford 6000 (Silver or Grey):





You will first need the serial number. This is found 2 ways: either by looking at the number on the sticker on the top or side of the radio, or by turning the radio on and holding the buttons 1 and 6 for a few seconds.

The radio will start cycling through various codes and numbers.
the one you need will begin with a 'V' followed by 6 digits, example: V123456
Make a note of this number.

Finding the Serial - Sony:
With the radio powered on, hold buttons 1 and 6 for three seconds.
the serial is displayed as a long number, you will need the last seven digits, starting with V



Generating the Code:
On your android or apple phone or tablet, go into the appstore and search for "Ford Radio"
Download one of the code generator apps, The app i use is "Ford Radio Code" by Uncle Soft.

Enter your serial number beginning with V, and the code will be instantly generated.

Entering the Code:
To enter the code into the radio, you will need to use buttons 1 to 4.
Pressing button 1 repeatedly cycles the first digit on the radio from 0-9.
Button 2 does the second digit, Button 3 the third digit etc...

Press button 5 to confirm when you have entered the code.

If the Radio shows "LOCKED"
Turn the radio off.
Hold button 6 and turn the radio on. Keep holding button 6 for 10 seconds.
If the radio shows "Locked 13" the radio will need to be replaced, or taken to ford for £££.

Finding the serial- Ford Travelpilot Series


To find the serial, you must remove the unit from the dashboard and find the sticker that displays the long serial number:



If you need a guide on how to remove the radio - there is a youtube video here:

Generating the code

I have only found one app that can generate a code free of charge for the Travelpilot on the Android Play store.
Look for "Ford radio code generator" by Car Radio codes.

Are you planning on adding some more info above in your reserved post?

I'm going to Sticky this and close it for comments before it gets spammed, if you want to add some more info just let me or one of the other mods so we can open it for you to add your comments.
