Leave it SWITCHED ON...UNDISTURBED and it should automatically reset itself....usually within an hour or two.

After entering the code of my ford fiesta radio serial number m126966. It's asking me for a code again. Still locked

Your code is 7936

To enter this you must enter the number like this.

Press the 1 button until the 7 is shows up.
Press the 2 until the 9 appears
Press the 3 until it reads 3
And press the 4 until the number 6 is shown..

The number should then read 7936 across the display.! Then press 5 to ENTER and the stereo should come on.

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.

you need to wait 24hrs (radio swithed on)to see if you can re-enter the propper code if not a local i.c.e/radio shop should be able to bypass the code system.
