Hi there thanks Ok as this is the correct code for the serial number you gave I suspect there is a different unit in the vehicle In order for me to generate your radio code i will need the serial number of the audio unit Most audio unit have a serial number self read function but into the unit If you press and hold buttons 1&6 or 2&6 (older units the unit will run through a self test and should run through various displays and display the serial number The serial number will look like this - exampleV015638 or M048725 If you can get back to me with this number I will generate your radio code immediatelyIf the self test function doesn't work and the unit doesn't display the serial number then the audio unit needs to be removed /popped out to read the serial number from the side of the unit Kind regards ***** ***** Brian

Nooooooo - that's the other code I've got written down in handwriting in the book - I said so in the original question. It doesn't work either! I'm going crazy here.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Actually no I didn't it must have been somewhere else I gave both codes. This one has been added by hand but as I said, it doesn't work. What am I doing wrong??
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 1 year ago.
Hi thereOk if the serial number that came up on the unit is V087581 then the correct code for the unit is 0978After you enter the code most ford units use Button 5 to store the code If it is a Sony unit use the centre button If you are unsure of the type of unit you can post an image so I can verify the setup Kind regards ***** ***** Brian
