Radio displays locked


You may need the owners manual for this. The dealer can provide the steps too.
If the display says LOCKED you have to unlock it before it will accept the code. On some models you turn the radio off, press the number 6 or the select button, then turn the radio back on. Once the display is all lines or dots, you can input the code by pressing the number one button for the first digit and so on.

"Safe" keeps displaying on radio, locked out


You need to remove the radio back up fuse for at least 2 minutes (yeah, I know they say 30 seconds, but it hasn't always worked for me), then reinstall the fuse. It should show 1000 or something similar on the digital display. You need to have the 4 digit code to unlock the radio and depress a couple of buttons after entering the code.

Remember that you push the radio pre-set station buttons to enter the code; button 1 for the first digit, button 2 for the second digit and so on. You will then need to push another button on your radio to enter the code. The button that you need to push will depend on which type radio you have.

If you don't have the radio code, look on the trunk floor to see if the radio serial number or code for the radio is there. If the PDI was done correctly and the radio wasn't replaced, then there should be a sticker on the trunk floor area with the serial number of the radio and/or the code. If it isn't there, then the radio needs to be removed from the vehicle to see the code that is stamped into the metal body of the radio. This plus the VIN number are input into the VW information system (done at the dealership only) to obtain the radio code.

The instructions for inputing the code should be in the owners manual or radio suppliment as supplied by VW, when the vehicle was sold new. If you have the code but aren't sure about how to input the code, see the local dealership, they can do it on the driveway in a manner of a few moments.

If the radio requires to be pulled to obtain the code, expect to pay between .5 to 1.0 of labour at the dealership's posted labour rate to obtain the code and input it into the radio to make it function. They used to do it for free until they ended up doing something 10 or more of these a day, because everyone else was charging up to $120! to unlock and programme the radio!

Radio locked no code


Unlocking the Delco Radio Theft-Deterrent Feature After a Power Loss

If you know the code that was used to lock the radio then use the following instructions from the owner's manual to unlock the radio.
Quote:
Enter your secret code as follows; pause no more than 15 seconds between steps:
1. Turn the ignition on. LOC will appear on the display.
2. Press MIN and 000 will appear on the display.
3. Press MIN again until the last two digits agree with your code.
4. Press HR until the first one or two digits agree with your code.
5. Press AM-FM after you have confirmed that the code matches your secret code. The display will show SEC, indicating the radio is now operable and secure.

If you enter the wrong code eight times, INOP will appear on the display. You will have to wait an hour with the ignition on before you can try again. When you try again, you will only have three more chances (eight tries per chance) to enter the correct code before INOP appears.
If you don't know the code that was used to lock the radio then you will have to use the dealer's unlock procedure as follows. The dealer code changes over time - the one listed is current as of this posting. If it doesn't work try 08359 or search the forum for messages with a more recent code.
Quote:
1. Press and hold presets 2 & 3 for about 10 seconds until the first three digits of the display code are displayed.
2. Write the numbers down.
3. Press the AM-FM button, write down the next three numbers.
4. Call 1-800-537-5140. When asked, enter dealer code 202108, press the * button, and enter the six digit code from the radio. You will get an unlock code, write it down.
5. Go back to the car, press the HR button and set the first two numbers, press the MIN button and set the next two numbers, then press the AM-FM button. The display will show SEC, indicating the radio is now operable and secure.

To remove the code, repeat step 5. you should see --- on the radio face indicating the code is now out of the radio."

Ford Focus: Displaying "Locked 13". Bought the car


Give this a try. If your radio has a button AR or AS, when the ignition key is off, press and hold the AR or AS button throughout this process. Then turn on your ignition.

Press button 1 repeatively until the first digit of your radio code is displayed, do this for the second digit with button 2, the third digit with button 3 and the fourth digit with button 4. When all numbers are showing on the screen push button 5. This should reset the unit.

If the button fails to reset do not keep repeating the process or it will say Forever locked. There are several models and forever is not always what it means. To get your Code there is a site called Fordcodes.com and for $6.99 they will email it.

There is a Code reprogrammer called an E13. A technician or radio shop would need this tool to recover your radio to make it work. If you use your Browser you will see many questions but few answers for this problem except to take the radio in. If you are lucky to have the model of radio which can be reset by this procedure it will eliminate the trip.

I hope this works out for you, the success depends on the series of the radio.

Wrong code was entered and now radio is in off mode how do i


You need to leave the ignition in the ON or ACCESSORY position with the radio displaying "OFF" for at least one hour.

After the display turns off in about an hour, you can turn the radio back on and CODE will be displayed again.

Then enter the code using the preset buttons 1-4 to scroll through each digit, press CD when your code is ready.
