Were having trouble finding the code for my ford ka 2012 is saying its a defective unit and it doesn't carry a code? But when switching on the radio it is asking for one.Can you help?

the code is an antitheft code installed in all new radios
it is activated when the power to the radio is cut
it is available from service centers and may even be written in the user manual in the radio operation section
most codes are entered using the mode button and station selection buttons but all that is explained in the user manual for the car

Ford Focus: Displaying "Locked 13". Bought the car

Give this a try. If your radio has a button AR or AS, when the ignition key is off, press and hold the AR or AS button throughout this process. Then turn on your ignition.

Press button 1 repeatively until the first digit of your radio code is displayed, do this for the second digit with button 2, the third digit with button 3 and the fourth digit with button 4. When all numbers are showing on the screen push button 5. This should reset the unit.

If the button fails to reset do not keep repeating the process or it will say Forever locked. There are several models and forever is not always what it means. To get your Code there is a site called and for $6.99 they will email it.

There is a Code reprogrammer called an E13. A technician or radio shop would need this tool to recover your radio to make it work. If you use your Browser you will see many questions but few answers for this problem except to take the radio in. If you are lucky to have the model of radio which can be reset by this procedure it will eliminate the trip.

I hope this works out for you, the success depends on the series of the radio.

When wiring the main 12v feed for the heated seats with integral switch buttons into the plug there are two wires (03 Street Ka): purple and black.

Which is which wire? I have assumed purple to ignition live and black to ground when wiring into a standard 1.3 Ka.

Is the button on position with the button out and red showing or pushed in?
