Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

The battery on our Ford Falcon was drained and the radio display stated 'code'. After a couple of failed attempts at entering the correct code the display now just states 'err' flashing on the display. We have tried disconnecting the battery andleaving it disconnected for an hour but the display is still the same.

Radio code is specific for each and every car. It is specific like anti theft code. You can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in authorized dealership. Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car.

I need the code for the stereo it's a ford ba falcon 2004


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

How to insert the code for the radio of my golf3 /1996



ENTERING SECURITY CODE

Most vehicles are equipped with Heidelberg V or VI radios that are equipped with a theft protection program. When the battery has been is disconnected or if the radio has been removed, the radio will lock-up electronically and cannot be operated until the security code is entered. On the Heidelberg V, if the proper code is not entered in six attempts, the radio will lock-up permanently and cannot be repaired. On the Heidelberg VI, two incorrect attempts will lock the radio for about 1 hour.
The Heidelberg V may have a code assigned at the factory or a personal code created by the owner. The Hiedelberg VI has a code assigned at the factory and entered by the dealer during pre-delivery inspection. New radios come with the code printed on a sticker but not entered into memory. All codes are 4 digits. To code the radio:
Heidelberg V

  1. Turn the radio ON . The radio should display the word SAF. DO NOT attempt to eject a cassette with the radio in this mode.
  2. Push the AM/FM and SCAN buttons at the same time and hold them until the display changes, then release them immediately. The number 1000 will appear for about 3 seconds, then the display will go blank. Release the buttons then.


NOTE If the buttons are held too long, the radio will interpret this as an attempt to enter an incorrect code.
  1. Use the first four station selector buttons to enter the code. The first digit of the code is always 1. Each time the other buttons are pushed, the number in that position will change.
  2. When the code appears correctly in the display, push the AM/FM and SCAN buttons at the same time. When the radio plays and displays a frequency, release the buttons.
  3. If the code was entered incorrectly three times, momentarily disconnect the battery and try again. If the code is entered incorrectly three more times, the radio cannot be coded and cannot be repaired.

  3. If the code was entered incorrectly two times, leave the radio ON for one hour and try again. This can be repeated as often as required.

My radio is showing lock10


You are inserting the wrong code. Check the serial number and let me know what it is? If you get a lock 13 it cannot be unlocked so make sure you have the correct code. Meanwhile, this will give you another 3 attempts,
If your radio is showing lock 10 simply hold down the button 6
on your radio whilst switching your radio on.
this will give you 3 extra attempts to enter the code to activate your ford radio

The serial number will begin with a "M" followed by six numbers.
Your Code is: "Enter the correct code here"
Insert the radio code by repeatedly pressing button 1 until the first number of the code appears on the display. Press button 2 until the second number of the code appears in the display. Repeat the process on buttons 3 & 4 to complete the code. When the code is entered correctly press button 5 and the radio should unlock. It works very well for me. Let us know how you get on.
(Please note that each serial number has a different code, if you require a code for a particular serial number then please post and someone on Answers may be able to assist you).

I have lost my radio code for my ford can you help.


Late Four Digit Ford Radio Codes (no SELECT button) ie. Ford 3000 Traffic, 4000RDS, 5000RDS, 6000RDS, 6006E, etc Switch the radio on and the word CODE should appear in the display Repeatedly press button 1 until the correct first digit of the code is displayed.
Repeatedly press button 2 until the correct second digit of the code is displayed.
Repeatedly press button 3 until the correct third digit of the code is displayed.
Repeatedly press button 4 until the correct fourth digit of the code is displayed.
Once the code has been correctly selected on the radio's display, press button 5 to enter. If "LOCK 10" is shown on the display, please contact us for guidance. If the display shows "LOCK 13" code entry will not be possible, and the unit will need to be electronically decoded by a car radio servicing specialist. Early Four Digit Ford Radio Codes (units with SELECT button) ie. Ford 2005, 2006, 2015, etc Switch the radio on and the word CODE should appear in the display. If CODE does not appear immediately, press the SELECT button momentarily, and CODE should then appear on the display. Repeatedly press button 1 until the correct first digit of the code is displayed.
Repeatedly press button 2 until the correct second digit of the code is displayed.
Repeatedly press button 3 until the correct third digit of the code is displayed.
Repeatedly press button 4 until the correct fourth digit of the code is displayed.
Once the code has been correctly selected on the radio's display, press the "SELECT" button to enter. Three Digit Ford Radio Codes ie. Ford 2000, 2001, 2005, 2007, etc Switch the radio on and the word CODE followed by three dashes should appear in the display. These three dashes should be flashing. Enter the three digit code by repeatedly pressing station presets 1-3 until each digit is correctly displayed, followed by preset 4 to accept the code. The unit should then function normally. If, after switching the radio on, the three dashes do not flash, then 3 or more incorrect code entries have been attempted. If a number 10 appears in the display, then ten incorrect codes have been tried and the unit will need to be decoded by a car radio servicing specialist.

How to reset the raido


Hello,

There is a trick to the procedure. You have to turn the key to position 1 or the first stop on the ignition. Turn on the radio and wait between 2.0 to 3.0 hours for the radio to reset and ask for the code. From the owners manual. My 97 takes between 2:25 and 2.5 hours to reset. Every radio is different.

To enter the code:

After installation or when the set has been disconnected from power, the set displays "codE" when it is switched on.
Enter the 4-digit code using the preset buttons. If the correct code is entered, "on" is displayed and the set is ready to use.
If you enter an incorrect code you must enter the correct code again from the beginning.

Incorrect code

If an incorrect code has been entered "rPt" is displayed. Enter the correct code.
After three unsuccessful coding attempts the set will lock and remain locked for two hours.
"OFF" is displayed.

During this waiting period:

the battery must be connected
the ignition key must be turned to position I
the unit must be turned on
Make sure the headlights are turned off to help prevent battery drain (please refer to page 2:6 for information on turning the headlights off). Enter the code again once this time has elapsed.

Goodluck!
