Ford ka stereo

I recently left the lights on overnight in my Ford Ka and the battery ran down requiring me to get a jump start. The other fall out from this was that the stereo (the standard Ford Ka stereo) seems to have gone into some kind of lock-down mode requiring me to input a code (4 numbers) to get it working again. As far as i know, there has never been a pass code selected for this so i have come up against a brick wall. Is there anyway i can get the stereo working again with out the code?

My ford ka will not crank only clicks battery fully charged it will start with jump from other started car but when try to start it only clicks and brr sound dails jump on the dash

I had a similar problem with a Volvo ages ago. With a new battery, I paid to have an alternator replaced over and over. Finally paid to have the alternator changed over to a generator. Turned out - the new battery was the problem. It was ... broken from day one. Just a thought.

Hi I'm just wondering I have a ford ka 2000 and need to find were the fog light is located any help much appreciated thanks

Switch is usually located on the dash for fords on the left side of the driver. If not there then look for a rotary type switch on the signal arm or washer/wiper arm.

What is wrong when the milage indicator starts to flash on my KA car

It needs a proxy alignment in your local dealership, it can be caused by flay battery, leads being disconnected, a bad connection, being jump started or a faulty alternator, what happens is the ECU fails to locate certain systems due to one of the above mentioned and flashes the mileage to warn of the issue. Its a common fault in Ford KA's and easily rectified in your local dealership. Hope it helps.

My Honda Accord wont start even with a jump. The lights come on but wont turn over. No click, no sound, no nothing

IT's those short drives that burn down a battery! The starting of an engine requires mucho electric to get it running. The alternator then charges the battery, but slowly! If you also have the lights and stereo on it is even slower. Get the battery FULLY charged with a commercial battery charger. Then check to see if the alternator is charging up the battery after you start it. If not, replace the alternator. If the battery dies overnight or in a few days...replace the battery.

Hi, i need to put water in my Ford Ka because the light is flashing and havent done it for a while. There are three tanks under the bonnet, one says power steering fluid so i assume its not that one. Then...

Hi, I'm not familiar with the Ka,but did the light go out after adding water? There are only 2 car fluids that are red. One is auto transmission fluid and one is a type of coolant. The transmission reservoir is in the pan, so I doubt you could have seen red fluid in the transmission without pulling up the dipstick. You can also try disconnecting the level sensor on the reservoir that you added water to. If the coolant light goes on and off when you short the terminals in that connector together (use a paper clip), then that is the coolant reservoir. My guess is you got it right.
