The FORD code entry instructions are 

Ford Code Entry Instructions

Once the unit has been turned on the display will show ' CODE - - - -'

Press preset [ 1 ] repeatedly for the first digit
Press preset [ 2 ] repeatedly for the second digit 
Press preset [ 3 ] repeatedly for the third digit
Press preset [ 4 ] repeatedly for the third digit
 
To save the code press the [ 5 ] key to accept. 

The set should now operate
============================================
If you require your code to be checked then the radio will have to be removed from the car in order to find the SERIAL NUMBER, usually found on a label on the casing....and it should begin with M****** or V or L or C
Then POST A NEW QUESTION 

quoting this Serial Number and your code will be calculated for you.

==============================================

Here is a video showing how to remove your radio from the dashboard. A pair of extractors are required (available from Ebay , Halfords ) but these can be made from 2 pieces of bent, wire coat-hanger or 4 small drills(using the blunt end) or 4 small Allen Keys or 4 small screwdrivers or 4 nails or even 4 darts.

An assistant is useful to pull the radio out whilst you are releasing the 4 securing clips

My 1998 ford escort stop running no lights


start with the battery. needs at least 11 or 12 volts to start the car. By no lights, do you mean nothing, absolutely nothing comes on? no lights on dash when you turn key to on? If so, need to check battery connections. are they both tight and clean? Is battery fully charged? Before you can diagnose the car you musthave a good battery that is fully charged. Then you can try and start it. If it still wont start or crank over you may have a main fuse out that would be under hood near battery.

Reset code for a W reg ford escort flight radio


just a thought, many ford I've had had the reset code written on the radio in permanent marker... about 40% of them have it written on by previous owner or fitter, since the radios were not super desirable and pretty unlikely to be nicked and really annoying when you removed the battery or blew a fuse. pull out the radio and look for a number.
