My rds 4000 says locked 13 what do i do


On a Ford radio there are two levels of security lockdown.

Lock 10 - this means that the radio is locked down through 10 incorrect code entries but there is a secret way of getting it to accept 3 more code attempts - does not apply in this case unfortunately.

Lock 13 - Radio is totally locked down after 13 incorrect code entries. A radio in this state can only be reset by either Ford themselves - warning - expect a 300 (pounds sterling) fee from Ford for this!! Or you can try a professional decoding workshop - charge is usually around 50 pounds.

A radio in Lock13 condition cannot be reset by anything other than specialist software and must be physically connected to a special interface that recodes the unit. Sorry!!

You may well find it is cheaper to source a second hand unit from a breaker or ebay or just buy an aftermarket unit.

Thanks for usinfg FixYa.

My car radio is displaying "LOCKED" on the screen.The car is a ford fiesta.The unit type is FDB200 and the serial number is M036699.I was wandering if you could help me unlock it?

Does it say LOCKED 10

or LOCKED 13

or just LOCKED.

If just LOCKED then leave it switched on for as long as it takes to automatically reset itself

This may be an hour or more

Ford ka radio displays locked 3

If it displays LOCKED 3 then leave it SWITCHED ON UNDISTURBED for as long as it takes to automatically reset itself.

Make sure you have the correct code

However if it says LOCKED 13 then your radio is fully locked (due to 13 or more wrong codes being entered previously ) and can only be reset by the Main Dealer or a Radio Decoding Service

The radio is locked,when i bought the vehicle there was no manuall or code for the radio.I need too unlock and put the code in the radio. The Model is 203 with code(756)MB Audio 10 Radio/CD/RDS

If the radio is locked up due to inputting the wrong sequence for the radio code it will say "wait" on the display. If this is the case then you need to leave the ignition on along with the radio in order for it to reset. This could take up to 24hrs. You can contact the dealer and give them the vin for the vehicle and ask for a VMI printout for the radio code. Some of the C-class 203 chassis didn't need a radio code.

I entered the wrong code on my ford 600 rds radio it now says locked 13 i now have new code but cant enter it wot can i do to fix it

LOCK13 means that your radio has had at least 13 wrong codes entered previously and  is now completely locked and can only be unlocked at the Main Ford Dealer or a Decoding Specialist.

If you had stopped at LOCK10 (ie 10 wrong codes )  thenyou could have reset it yourself
