The radio/ cd unit, for your model Jeep, has a built in security code. When disconnecting the the battery it activates the security. The reason for this is to discourage someone stealing the radio, as it renders the unit useless. To re-activate the unit you will have to enter a pin number, which should be supplied with the vehicle when bought from the dealership ( check in your operating manual). If you don't have the pin number, contact your Jeep dealer, who can supply the required pin code. Usually the dealer will re-activate your radio/cd unit free of charge.
You need to enter the ford audio units security code into the audio unit. Because the battery was out for a long time, the audio unit has forgotten its security code. The code is in the manual that came with the car.
These codes are anti theft security codes and each one is unique to the car VIN number and the radio chassis serial number. The code was give to the original owner along with entry instructions to reset the radio whenever the battery has been disconnected. What you must do now is contract the dealer for instructions on how to retrieve the code to unlock the radio. There may be a charge for this and you may also need to remove the radio from the dash, it varies by module and year.
When you disconnect/replace a car battery, your radio anti-theft security system will be triggered: consult your car user manual on how to reset the anti-theft security for your particular radio/audio system: you will need to enter a specific 'security code' that should have been provided when your car or car audio system was bought.
It probably needs a four digit pin number. most car radios will require this security code in case the set is stolen. disconnecting the power supply to the set (Either by stealing a radio or by disconecting your battery) will activate the pin code request. If you are lucky then pin number may written down somwhere in the servicebook. if not, then you need to remove the set and note down the seriel number on the sticker on the casing. (Some people have been known to write the pin number here as well!!) . Your local dealership will be able to provide the pin number if you have the seriel number, but they may charge you.
If you have proof that you own the vehicle and the radio the dealer will give you that info. If it was easily obtained anyone with a stolen radio could get it and it would not be a security feature anymore. In the future, you can get a small device called a setting saver that plugs into an accessory port that eliminates the need for re-coding on battery disconnects or service.
