Quick and free fix sir or maam.The radio locks up when the battery is removed on today's cars.I don't know who decided to start it but it is somewhat stupid...I think anyhow.All you have to do is call a Ford dealer and they will give you the code and method to unlock your stereo.Write it down because your battery may get disconnected for many other reasons than a dead battery when repaired.I am pretty sure they just need the VIN.You can put aftermarket stereos in too if you ever want to.Good luck!

If you are talking about the security code that is used on some manufacturer's radios which will appear after battery has run dead or has been disconnected, then you will need to take the car to the dealer. Once they verify you are the owner, they will give it to you.
