Here are the necessary steps to find your Ford car radio code
Without dismantling the car radio

Ford 4500 RDS car radio serial number
This radio model displays the serial number by pressing buttons 2 & 6, which displays an "M" serial number.
With disassembly of the radio
It's very easy to remove your Ford car radio. You will need a set of unlocking keys (PC5-132). These are inexpensive (between 3 and 5 ).
Once you have the Ford radio's unlocking keys, push them into the 4 holes in each corner of the radio, apply light pressure and the radio will exit the dashboard. The radio label will be affixed to one side or the back of the radio.
The serial numbers start from V/M/BP/C7 for example V123456. The Ford TravelPilot model is slightly different, for example C73F0961 C 0536857.
