When you changed the battery ,the radio read it as being stolen and placed a code lock into the system. This code can be obtained from the ford dealer if you can provide proof of ownership which you can enter into the radio via the control knobs. IT has nothing to do with fault codes but seeing as to how you have disconnected the battery often you may have to use a code reader to reset the CPU to obtain proper performance again. If you are doubtful as to how to set the code have the dealer service centre do it for you and write down the code in the owners hand book for the next time.

    I called ford and they said that it might be the radio fuses but I checked my fuse box and there wasn't any fuses there but I'm not sure if when battery died it blew the fuse off.

SOURCE: Changed car battery and radio-code will not work to get radio back on. It's worked in the past. Any suggestions?

Hi Diane:
You will need to visit the Honda dealer to obtain it; the radio unlock code is unique for each VIN vehicle, so no one can be offered via Internet.

Simply present the vehicle's VIN to get it; sometimes you have to make any payment to the dealer to request this information.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Why Is the my heat not coming on in my 2011 ford fusion


Make sure you have the temperature set to maximum, try again... May still not come on until the engine is warm. Other than that, the bump thing may mean a loose connection somewhere in the wiring. Does the display work?

Ford fusion radio code


I had the same problem. jumped the battery and then the radio didn't work, just said "ford fusion" on the display. you need to locate the fuse box down by the brake pedal to the left, very difficult to get at. once you find it remove the plastic cover and then remove the radio fuse (look in your owners manual for the fuse number and location). using a needle nose pliers works the best. once you remove the radio fuse look at it, the small metal wire inside should be broken. replace it with an identical fuse. my fuse box had spare fuse slots with same color and number on them so I just used one of those.

Try disconnecting your battery for 10 minutes and see if it comes back. May just need a reset or reboot.
