Question about 2002 Ford SVT Focus

1 Answer

Radio locked Hi there I'm driving a 4 door Ford Focus. I took out my battery and when I put it back in again it asked me for a code. I called Ford dealers in N1 city and they said that I should come in and get the code there by them. When I punched in the code my tape locked. When I called them to tell them they said that I to bring my car ib and the tape has to be taken out because the radio's CPU is outdated. I found this very annoying as they were the one's giving me the wrong code in the first place. I want to know now what I can do. Regards Deidre

Unfortunately they (the Ford Dealers) are the keepers of the codes.

What is happening is that your radio has a anti-theft feature to make it useless for someone to steal your radio. When you replaced your car battery your radio must have thought you were stealing it and disabled itself. The code they gave you must have been outdated as they get changed from time to time to stay ahead of the thieves.

Bottom line is that you will need to go to the dealer to get it rectified.

You must write down you VIN number. Also you may have to remove the radio to get the serial number and model number and write it down. Call the dealer or you may have to go to the ford dealer and provide this information and prove you own the vehicle for them to relenquish the information. At this time they will tell you what you would need to push in order to bring the radio back to life. Hope this helps.

Hi everyone i just needed a code for my ford focus stereo which is asking for a code after changing battery.its 6000 RDS E.O.N serial number M232818 .would really appreciate it.thnx


you have to contact the dealership who will call in for the code this is an ( Anti-Theft / Deterrent) you get 3 try's to enter the code before it locks you out for 1 hour before you can retry entering the code again .

Otherwise its possible the previous owner wrote the code down in the Owners Manuel or on another paper and put it in the Glove box look there 1st
