Hi just bought a 2009 focus just getting used to it but dealer put new battery in it but can't get radio working as need code is there anyone I can contact to get it
Hi there good afternoon to you and sorry for the delayed response Ok in order for me to generate your radio code i will need the serial number of the audio unit as there is no other way to generate the code Most ford audio units have a serial number self read function built into the unit If you press and hold buttons 1&6 or 2&6 (most 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 WILL need to be removed /popped out to read the serial number from the side of the unit Kind regards ***** ***** Brian
Hi there good morning to you Did you Manage to retreive the serial number from your audio unit Regards ***** ***** Brian

Hi tried it like you said and still no joy is there an enter button or a button I press at the end of the above process sorry to be a nuisance but didn't get radio manual with car only normal handbook
Hi there good morning to you
No worries
Ok depending on the unit it may differ
Can you put the code back in and press the centre small circle button (this is the later audio unit type )
I assumed you has the earlier one as it's an 09
