If you get the make of the radio and the serial number I MAY & I stress MAY be able to get you a code as I do have software to decode for Ford radios but not all of them are in there. The fact that your vehicle is over 10 years old you may have a shot. Anyway reply to this and fixya should email me or you can email me at with the info and I will TRY to help if I can.

2003 Lincoln ls v-8 cruise control won't engage. Light won't come on or anything when I hit the button. Everything else work fine.

My 2001 Lincoln ls cruise control will not work. Put in a new clockspring and that did not fix it. radio controls and horn work but the air bag light stays on continually after starting. The lights on the cruise side will go on an off -I have bought that part to replace but don't want to put on if that is not the problem.

2004 lincoln ls keys wont program to cluster

OUCH! Electrical problems are a B but maybe this will help. It seems to me that I was looking at switching out the multifunction switch on a 2000 Park Avenue or an ignition switch on some vehicle but I was advised by my local, friendly, and knowledgeable auto wrecker that it was highly likely I would have problems with the car starting, turning on, or something like that because of the vehicle's security system set up. So, being as it was my wife's car I just got divorced instead and she traded it and the cash I had to give her for a Hummer. Haha, just trying to lighten things up a bit for you. Anyway, short solution long is that you might want to see if getting the related security items (steering column? ignition and/or multifunction switches, computer stuff, PCM) and who knows what else, from the same LS that you got the dash. Still a pretty ugly situation and I have NO IDEA why my junk car guy would know this yet neither your mechanic nor the Ford Motor company. Ha, I think I would call the Corporate offices and complain until you get to the design people who should know the answer to your problem. Maybe that's the way to go!
