Leave the radio switched on for 1 hour it should reset. If you start car, switch off radio or switch off ignition you must start your hour again

SOURCE: ford fiesta 02 plate - radio code reset after flat

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,

My radio /cd player won't allow me to put the code in


If the wrong code has been entered too many times the radio is likely to be permanently blocked.

Each time a code is entered wrongly or the wrong code is used there will be a waiting time before the code can be tried again and each time that waiting time will be longer; up to several hours.

It is important to enter the code and activate the radio precisely so check the procedure in the manual before starting then if the code won't go in assume you have the wrong code.
The correct code can be purchased from the dealer or various internet sites offer "find your code" services. Alternatively it is possible to have the radio re-coded or decoded. Bear in mind the radio could be permanently blocked and effectively useless..

Radio not working showing word SECURE


look inside your book owner manual
somewhere it supposed to have the code and a way to enter the code ,
or a manual of the radio !
somewhere in those books the code is printed like a ink pad label !
when you change the battery you need to inter the code each time,
open the radio with the number pad enter the code
you must do step by step like the manual of the radio say !!!!!
or the car dealer could help you
if you dont have the code the radio is useless

Problem with entering anti-theft radio code for Honda Fit: The radio screen says: "Enter Code:" I enter the confirmed correct code, but when doing so when the actual code (all numbers) turn into letters or...


when you use the "preset keys" (the keys on the radio with numbers on them) to enter the code, each time you press a code number, a letter appears [c, o, d, e]. once the word is spelled out, from entering the correct 5 digits, the radio is reset, ready to go.

BUT if you miss a number, enter a wrong number, whatever, each number pressed, still makes a letter appear from the word "code". once the word is spelled out, by entering ANY 5 numbers, if ANY of the 5 is wrong, the radio displays a message "Error" and then a number 1 thru 10.

When you see the word "Error..."

the next preset button you push, starts the whole thing over again. The radio says "Enter code". That is when you enter the 1st of the 5 digits, the letter C appears, enter the next digit, the letter O appears, enter the next digit, the letter D appears, enter the last digit, the letter E apperas, the radio is reset, ready to go, if you got the 5 correct numbers entered.

you have 10 chances to enter the right 5 digit code. Each wrong try of 5 digits yeilds a display of "Error 1", "Error 2", "Error 3", etc 'till you get to 10 incorrect tries of 5 digits each.

If you dont get it right in 10 tries, you have to leave the radio "on" for an hour, then it will let you start the 10 tries over again.

Good luck!
