Look for a sticker on your trunk hinge but dont worry if its not there. I think that some Ford products had it in the dash compartment. Dont worry we will stay after it till we get it. Check out this site.

It is located on the keyless entry module located under the drivers side dash. There will be a five digit code on the side of the box facing the passenger side. Enter the code and it should unlock. Follow owners manual to change the code, it will store both codes at the same time and either should work.

I changed the battery in my 1997 Mercury Sable and now the radio displays the word "CALL" on it and doesn't work. How do I fix that?

It is the theft prevention system that newer vehicles have. When power is disconnected to the radio, it goes into lock mode and you have to enter a code and follow the procedure in your owners manual to get it unlocked. If you do not know the code, then take it to your Ford/Mercury Dealer and they will have it unlocked and provide you a code in less then 5 minutes. Most likely they won't charge you anything for it either.

Good Luck
