If it needs a code it will either have "CODE" on the screen or 4 dashes "- - - -" If you have the handbook there is usually a card with the code on or sometimes owners write it on the outside of the radio but you will have to remove the radio! When you have removed the radio if you cannot find the code.....take note of the serial number because you can get the code from that! Look on Gumtree for Ford radio codes!
unscrew dash plate around radio use a magnetic screw driver because the screws are in the two front vents once thes removed the dash radio plate should pop off without force exposing radio behind unscrew that unplug wires pull rest the way out
now the advice
make sure if your replacing with aftermarket make sure your wire leads are connected correctly no splicing of main wires in dash thats nono trouble as wires now have multifunctions to them it should be simple as plug and play
go to a local parts store and you would need to get a radio removal kit. they are 2 flat peices that you slide next to your radio to unlock it from your dash, after that you shoudl be able to slide it out from the dash. Did you check the fuse panel to make sure you didnt just pop a fuse?
THIS IS A FUSE LINK PROBLEM THAT YOU HAVE BLOWN, YOU MUST VERY THEROUGHLY INSPECT THE ENTIRE POWER DISTRIBUTION NETWORK OF FUSES AND LINKS ALSO CONNECTORS, IM SURE UPON THIS TYPE OF INSPECTION YOU "WILL" LOCATE THE PROBLEM. ALSO REMOVE THE ALTERNATER AND HAVE IT TESTED WELL, REPLACE "IF" NESSESARY. I CAN NOT EXPRESS ENOUGH THAT YOU NEED TO LOOK VERY CARFLLY AT THIS AREA OF THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM.
To remove the radio you must gently pry out on the trim around the radio. Then you can access the two bolts that hold the radio in the dash. You can then remove the radio by unplugging the two harnesses, antenna and unbolting the ground wire.
all you gotta do is carfully pry the dash panel off (prying from the far left end is easiest) completely remove panel. then there are 2 clips that hold the factory sterio in place. push on the both clips while pulling the radio out. simply disconnect the wiring harness from the back of the radio. using an adapter avaliable at your local radio shop (scosche p/n gm02,mdarb andgm1483b) wiring harness, dash install kit, and antenna adapter. then simply match the colors on the new radio's harness to the adapter harness, crimping each connection with a "but plug". then simply follow the instructions included with the dash install kit to assemble the kit.connect the antenna adapter to radio, plug in all cables. test to see if everything works properly before the final install. install sterio into dash install kit, re installing kit where origional radio was. then simply put the panel back in its place by firmly pushing on it untill it snaps into place. then enjoy your new radio!
I just replaced my radio on my 97 olds so im thinking it should be the same. You have to completely remove the lower dash. this involves popping many of those lock things but be careful cause they break easy. Also you will need to remove multiple screws from around the lower dash, then it will just drop down and you can remove the radio.
This is not a fuse problem, it is a burnt out display backlight bulb, you have to pull the radio out of the dash and remove the top cover of the radio, you will see a tiny bulb socket, twist it out, replace that little bulb.
