You are describing the Lock 10 message. Ford charge a fortune to resolve this - up to £200.
However you can fix it yourself with a bit of help. Contact these guys at this link.
They charge £3.50 to decode the radio itself but be sure to use the contact form to let them know the radio is also locked up as this requires an additional procedure to get the radio to accept the code.
They will supply the instructions you need to get it running again. Have used them several times.
Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: error message on my ford radio
Yes - there is a solution here.
The problem here is that you must leave continuous power to the radio. Any interruption causes the countdown or wait period to start all over again. The secret is to ensure the key is turned in the ignition to accessories point I or the first point on the ignition that activates power to the radio.
If the key is not turned in the ignition as outlined, the radio will automatically shut off after one hour which is a power saving feature (which is great) but it also has a side effect in this case of shutting off the radio before the time limit has been reached!!
Obviously - as you must leave the key turned in the ignition during the wait period (which may be up to 4 hours) please ensure the vehicle is parked in a safe location and well away from any opportunistic thief.!!
Hope it helps or for anyone reading this in a similar situation - this information applies to many vehicles and radio types as many manufacturers have a similar security feature - not just Ford.
Thanks for using FixYa,
