Because you disconnected the battery the radio has gone into anti theft mode and will not work until the correct code is re inserted in the radio.. Find the code in the owners hand book or get it from a ford service centre of you may be able to get it on line

SOURCE: need radio code for 1999

Hi,

The serial number is on a label at the back of the radio. With this model you must remove the radio from the dash to find it.

If it is a European Ford the serial will look like M123456. You can try this site for the code once you have the serial as they are cheap and reliable for decoding Fords.

Otherwise your local dealer will get you this code for around £25.

See video below for instructions on removing the radio.

Thanks for using FixYa and please do leave a vote for the solution.

I HAD A NEW BATTERY PUT INTO MY 99 FORD ESCORT zx2 HOT COUPE AND I THINK THEY MESSED UP THE CONNECTER THAT ATTACHED TO MY BATTERY CABLE AND NOW MY CAR RADIO DOSE NOT WORK?


They didn't mess up the connector, you radio has an anti-theft code and it must be put in before the radio will work. IF they would have kept 12volts attached to the battery cables when they replaced the battery all would be well, but once the power is completely disconnecting from the car you must have the anti-theft code for the radio. If you are lucky someone wrote it down in the owners manual if not you will need the serial number off of the radio to obtain it from the dealer.

I have a ford focus 99 and put the original car radio so that appears locked 13! how do I can put the code?


Lock 13 means that radio is completely locked down due to too many incorrect code entries. When this happens the radio is effectively 'bricked up' and needs specialist attention.

The radio has to be completely reprogrammed by Ford now as it will not accept a code any longer. This will be costly but unfortunately there is no other way around it.

Your best option actually is to look out for a cheap replacement unit on ebay.

Battery died replaced battery but now the radio will not turn on a 2005 Ford Focus AM/FM radio with cd player. the fuse has not been blown, if I have to replace the radio does it need to be with a ford...


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!

Need the code 4 my radio its ford focus 1.6 ghia


There is a little utility/tool that is on the internet (can be found with a bit of searching). You put your serial no. in and it gives you the correct code. I have tested on three of my own units and correct code each time, as per the issued radio passport. I will not say where on internet, as I agree with what "emissionwiz" stated about how do we know radio not result of illegal activities.
