Unhappy Lock code for Ford Figo TDCi Titanium

@Mods: I have searched the forums and could not find a similar thread, so posting a new one. If there is an exisiting thread, request you to merge this one. Thanks and apologies for inconvenience.

Hi All,

Car: Ford Figo TDCi Titanium
Head Unit: Ford Figo Stock Music Player with BT and USB connection.
Issue:-

Yesterday for some reason I had to remove the battery from the car. When I put in the battery back, the Music Player asked for a key code.

I referred to the Music Palyer Manual and it does not specifically read of any deafult key code (for obivious reasons!). It only describes how to enter the key code and they have taken an example of 1234. Tried that key code and now the head unit shows "Wait for 30 Mins". (Also, if you notice the point number 6 in the manual is incomplete!!!! )

I wanted to know if any one of us have faced this issue and what key code was entered. I will be speaking to my Showroom contact as well for this.

Also, the other issue is, once I remove the key from the car, the counter on head unit resets to 30 Mins, which is very irrirtating. Is this an expected behavior?

Cheers!

Each vehicle has its own lock code. This will be supplied to you when you take a delivery. Usually they write it in back of of your vehicle user manual. Car's audio manual is general! You won't get the lock code there. If you didn't find the lock code, ask dealer to retrieve it.

The lock code of the Unit was mentioned on the small plastic sheet that was covering the facia of the unit. there was a instruction on the unit that the sheet to be removed by the customer only and the sticker was to be attached in the manual booklet of the stereo.

We have the exact same problem with my friend's Fiesta since the last service at a body repair shop. Still searching for the lock code . Whenever its turned on, it gives the wait for 30 mins and a countdown starts. Since it's pending service, waiting to take it to the service center and try to fix it there.

It would be advisable to take your car to the showroom/ dealership. They will be best to help.

^ Guess that is what I would need to do. :(

Why does the counter has to reset itself everytime? Bad thinking.

Cheers!

Try searching for it in the glove box. The fiesta has it pasted inside the glove box to the side.

Yes, Even My figo has a sticker with the code on the outside surface of the Glove box. I've had to use it a couple of times too, when the SA had disconnected the battery to check something.

In the fiesta, the 4 digit code was pasted in the stereo section of the owner's manual.
I do remember that you have to wait for the 30 minutes.
What i dont is whether this waiting was done after entering the code or before it.

And anytime you shut it off without waiting out the 30 minutes, its going to get reset to 30 minutes.
Have you waited it out yet?

Ps:quite sure it wont be "1234"

My Fiesta has it written (in pen) on one of the pages in the CAR's user manual. Somewhere towards the end, there is a page with four boxes [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] where the code should be written.

Just had a word with Ford Customer Care (FCC) and my car dealer.

FCC gave me jitters saying that if you enter it more than three times incorrectly, you will have to get the HU replaced!! :O

Then I called my Dealer and he mentioned that sticker to be either in the glove box or on the car's service manual. Pretty much the same as many our members have mentioned here.

Will have to wait to get back to home and then try searching it once again. Will only try this once, if it does not work, will straight way go to the service sation and get it fixed.

I hope, it works without the visit to service station as I will will have to visit there in a few days from now for the second service!!

Thank you for all your replies!

Cheers!

If that is the policy, then its stupid and exploitative.
I am sure that even if you manage to lock the HU, the Fomoco guys will be able to unlock and fix it.
best not to take the chance.
Because i am sure the unlocking in that case would be chargeable.

It came handwritten in the Fiesta's Owner's manual in a black permenant marker (this was ages ago, in 2006, maybe systems have changed now). In case you face problems, take it to the dealer. This service is not chargeable.

If you have to get it attended during the service, please ensure you specify in writing in the job report.

For anything that goes wrong with the company fitted stereo / CD Player, the answer is "isko chennai bhejna parega".

There is a lock code for all Ford HU's and it is normally pasted in the glove compartment. In my Fiesta it was there and I had personally removed and pasted in the audio manual. I will be needing it when I return back to India and connect the battery. I had ensured that I had noted the lock code in my personal diary too before I disconnected the battery.

I took delivery of my Figo yesterday and the HU lock code is available in the very first page of the HU user guide. There are two stickers with the code and it is mentioned to keep the code safe.

This is not correct. The HU manual mentions that it is 10 times before the unit gets locked. And even after this, I don't think the HU gets permanently disabled. After the first 3 attempts, it starts a timeout of 30 mins before you can try again. And after another 'x' (don't remember how many) attempts, the timeout becomes 60 mins.
