I have a 2009 Ford with the following radio ID: V023619 can anyone tell me the code to unlock? Thanks

  • Take the radio serial number and your VIN to a Ford dealer, they should be able to sort you out, there may be a charge or may not. Have you checked the handbook or is there a tag on the keyring? – Solar Mike Oct 1 '18 at 8:27
  • There are plenty of web sites which can give you the code for modern radios (and 2009 is certainly modern enough) - but you usually have to pay a few dollars to get it. If you search motoring forums, you might find one where a member who works for a dealership will give you the code for free - but don't ask whether or not that is legal! When you have got the code, write it on the metal case of the radio with a marker pen, so it will never be forgotten again. – alephzero Oct 1 '18 at 11:06
  • This trick works on some Fords - Jaguar with radios up to 2009, but may not help you... Enter any code 3 times so that the display shows "PLEASE WAIT" , Then Simultaneously press ">>" "PTY" "A.MEM" should only take 2 or 3 seconds and the radio turns on. – Solar Mike Oct 1 '18 at 14:40

    This is not within site scope because it is not maintenance or repair, it is a phone call/visit to the dealership – Rory Alsop Oct 2 '18 at 17:05

This site was useful - http://www.freefordradiocode.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1617&p=42282#p42282.

To Rory Alsop that commented above, this was a maintenance question! I swapped the battery on my car yesterday and wished to get my radio working again. The whole point of this site is to empower people to repair and maintain their vehicles using the free knowledge and help of others and avoid dealerships!
