Question about Ford Escort
This will most likely happen.
If it is the original radio that came with the car you can give vehicle ownership and registration details at the dealer workshop and they will get it off the manufacturers computer/web site.
Not sure how you will go with a replacement radio purchased from a shop. You may have to contact the manufacturer/agent.
An option I have heard is that there is a cheap device you can plug into the cigarette lighter socket prior to removing the battery and will provide sufficient voltage for the radio as long as the ignition is only in the "accessories" position and nothin else is turned on, i.e. ceiling light, glove box light.
It would not do any harm just to stop at a mechanic and ask how they would do it. It doesn't cost to ask.
I would be interested to find out how you go with this.
