Battery recently died and caused cd radio to turn on and off. Caused the cd's to sound like they were shifting around as the battery also caused the alarm to go off. Now radio display blinks on and off and goes to the AM setting once it stops blinking. Radio works but cd player screen display says "initializing" or an error message. Cd's will not eject or load. I went to local Ford/Lincoln/Mercury dealer and they are lost and say it has no code that I need a new radio.
Is this true or does it have a radio code? I bought the Monterey new in 2007 and can not find anything in the owners manual.

I would start with a COMPLETE scan of your ENTIRE computer network.
I would also take a HARD look at the battery and charging system.
I have seen things like shorted battery cells cause symptoms like you are describing. Especially if you are getting false error codes. There will usually be a "low voltage" code or "communication error" code stored in one or more of the modules if this is the problem.
Please note that it is common with later model vehicles for a bad battery to have the power to crank the starter and then not have the power to run the computer systems and keep the engine running. Bad alternator diodes can be the root cause of such things. Bad diodes can cause the computer to set all kinds of false codes. It will also wreck your battery.
Then again, it may have absolutely nothing to do with your battery or charging system. This is why a complete scan of your computer network is necessary - to help eliminate possibilities.
PO 300 is multiple misfires detected
PO 301, 304, 305, 306 are misfires in cylinders 1,4,5,&6
PO 053 is HO2S Bank 1 Sensor 1 Heater Resistance
PO 106 is MAP/BARO CKT Range / Perf
PO 316 is Misfire detected 1st 1000 Revs.
On a misfire, I usually push towards the spark plugs, plug wires, and coil packs / distributor coil.
You have PO 106 and PO 053 that need to be inquired about at nearest AutoZone.
They can give you an idea as to what is the problem on these.
Did a MAP sensor **** out and cause all the misfires ?
Did a misfire cause the MAP sensor error?
You see what I'm saying ?...Something caused all the misfires...thinking MAP...but not that familiar with the function of the MAP.

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