security code for radio in EF falcon

just brought the EF and the battery died, so after replacing the battery i then needed the security code. Down to the ford dealership i go to get the code, only to be given the wrong code but on their system my vin number has that code for the radio, so now i keep getting a ERR signal

Is there a way around this (without buying a new radio) how do i find out the right code and clear the ERR message on the front screen?!

the err code will go away.. every time a wrong code is entered in it takes longer and longer to go away..

as for the code, i would of done the same thing.. bummer they gave u the incorrect code... do the people u got the car from have the code still..

I suspect the radio has been replaced , try the dealer again and take the rego papers , it helps

the other option is to take the radio out and take it into ford as there is some numbers on the radio they can cross ref to get the code

Re: security code for radio in EF falcon

If the radio has been replaced, there is a good chance the code is written on the case...many wreckers do this.

Cheers

Re: security code for radio in EF falcon

give them the serial number of the radio, it will be stamped onto the case and also on a sticker. They will 'assign' that radio to your car on the Ford computer system and then they will be able to give you the right code. I used to do this all the time when we fitted replacement radios under warranty at the dealership I worked at.
