Blocked? I am guessing that it has something on the display, like"SAFE"? If there is power going to it, and signs of some could be the car's radio alarm. When battery power is lost to the radio, it will trip an alarm. It requires a 4 digit code to work again.
If you have the owner's manual, you can find it in there. If not...
If you pull the radio, DO NOT disconnect any wires, and find the serial number on it, you can call a dealer and get the code for the radio.
Some cars hold down MODE and SCAN and the SAFE should change to 1000. This is where you input the numbers using the up and down to change number value & the first four station buttons to change to next number.
Good Luck.

The cd player for ford ka is blocked when i change the battery what i do please ? thank you

I suggest the previous owner or supplying dealer is contacted to discover if they have the code which should be part of the vehicle literature pack and be transferred with the vehicle along with the keys.

Usually a coded radio will not initially be permanently blocked, but after a wait a few further attempts to enter the code can be made but eventually the unit will be permanently blocked. Full details are contained in the audio manual which is also part of the vehicle literature pack.

The audio code can be found by removing the radio and noting the serial number. Providing proof of ownership and the details to the manufacturer's dealer and paying hard cash and they will provide the number.

There are cheaper online sources of code numbers but if the radio is close to being permanently blocked it will be too risky to enter any but the correct code.

If the unit is permanently blocked the services of a specialist will be required to decode or recode it.

Stereo dos not work

first confirm fuse for radio circuit is good, replace if its blown.
If fuse is good, and radio still not working, check power wires and plugs from back of radio to fuse block--check for broken wire, rubbing wire (worn insulation = short in circuit), loose connecting blocks, loose /broken wires in connection blocks. If that all checks out -- got to the nearest wrecker and get a 2nd hand radio OR by an aftermarket radio. OR pay an auto-radio shop to check your radio and maybe the wiring.
