LOCK13 means that there have been at least 13 wrong codes attempted to be entered.
There is no D-I-Y method to reset it.
Unfortunately , to unlock it , the unit will have to be taken into a Decoding Specialist who will unlock it using specialist equipment.

Inote: If the display had shown LOCK10 (ie..just 10 wrong codes) then there IS amethod to reset it.

Ford fiesta radio locked13

Lock 13 is the final code entry on ford radios! You will have to remove the radio and take it to a car audio specialist to have the code entries reset and read the correct code, if you have got to lock 13 the code you are trying to enter is probably wrong!

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

My 4000rds radio is showing locked 13

LOCK13 means at least 13 wrong codes have been entered previously and your radio is well and truly locked.
The only solution is for it to be taken into the Ford Main Dealer or a Decoding Service who will unlock it using specialist electronic equipment.

There is no D-I-Y solution.

note: If the display had said LOCK10 then there IS a D-I-Y solution
