You need to disconnect the battery for half hour or so this often resets the radio LOCK.

Hi rds 5000 radio in fiesta i used the radio code finder and entered the code but it didnt unlock there is a sticker on the radio saying it has been recoded but company wants 25 quid to tell me the code...


The code for this radio according to that serial is 2 3 7 3

IMPORTANT: However, if the radio has been recoded as you say then this code will not work as the factory code will have been changed. In this case you have no option other than to send it in to a decoder to be reset by specialist software. It has to be physically connected to software to do this - so they cannot tell you the code when the original code has been changed without using this equipment.

Sorry but there is no other way around it!!

It may well be worth your while to put the 25 quid towards an aftermarket radio. You can pick up a decent Sony from Halfords for 50 pounds for example.

Might be worth considering if the code I have given you does not work due to the previous repair.

Need radio code for ford fiesta car,serial number M 329118, 5000 RDS E-O-N ,please help me

When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect itagain, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your carradio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. Ifyou do not have this code you need to go to your Ford service centre andget them to enter this code for you.

New battery on my fiesta radio reset but original code wont work tried 8 code variations any help serial M092042

You need to be very careful with this as if you keep entering incorrect codes the radio will lock up altogether and you will have a very expensive repair bill from Ford.
I have checked your serial for you and the factory code for your radio is 8 9 2 9
When you have 8929 entered you must press preset button 5 to save the code and get the radio to accept it. For correct code entry instructions for Ford please view this link.
Please let us know how you get on. If this code does not work right away at the first attempt then your radio has been completely recoded and the factory code no longer applies. The radio will have to go to a specialist to be recoded in this instance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

2011 ford fiesta diesel. I removed the radio fuse from my car and although the radio switches on it won't go past the initial start up screen and doesn't ask for the radio code. Please can you...

Find the person who bought this car new, take that person and the car to a Ford dealer. They will fix it for free, it is under warranty. Now that you know you have no business monkeying around with anything except the ignition key, the pedals, and the steering wheel, stay away from other things on the car.
