I'm sure you're right....but that's why I joined a great F150 forum, to learn from you folks!!!!

Also, I meant to say some FORD DEALERSHIPS and not generalize Ford with my negative comment!!!
I've now had a few people tell me their local Ford dealership pulled the code numbers for free.

Glad to hear you got it all taken care of. I miss this option. Had it on my '02 150, but opted not to when I purchasded my '06 150.

Like others state, to make money. These scans are usually how they recoup the cost of equipment so quick. And these machines aren't cheap.

I understand they need to pay their equipment, but isn't this sad?!
Now that I know this, I will NEVER take my truck to them for anything. I'll drive further away to another dealership

I dont know why they charge.. it really makes no sense.. of course its still not as bad as honda.. honda has some anti theft crap on their radios where if the power is disconnected from the radio it locks up and you have to enter a 5 digit code to turn it back on..

This happened to my aunt when the battery in her CR-V died.. The dealer ship told her to bring it in and they would reset it for $80..

Refusing to let her pay that much i got on google and found out you can open the glovebox and the code is on a sticker stuck on the inside of the glove box.. i found the code easily and fixed her radio...

And of course Honda didnt even think to mention the sticker

The radio thing is to protect the owner, if your aunt would have read her owners manual right when she got the vehicle and set a code, she would have known it, i understand not everyone reads the manual, however igorance can be costly. my silverado had the same crap. if you are gonna waste time stealing a stock deck, you ain't much of a crook, lol

As for the code, i have heard that some dealerships take out the white card and toss it if you don't have the keypad on the door stock, now that is BS, it should be left in there, it should be up to the purchaser if her or she wants to toss it.

My aunt got it used last year its a 2002.. so she didnt get the owners manual.. the previous owner had lost it or just didnt give it to her.. and also while looking on google i found out you can pull the radio out yourself and get the serial number off the back and call the dealership with the number and get your code for free...

So even if someone had stolen it they could call any dealership and get the code by giving honda the seiral number off the back of the radio
