Hi the problem with getting the code is the age of the vehicle now if the stereo is original then it might have the code written on sticker on the case of the stereo so you need to remove the stereo and have a look.
If the code isnt on the stereo then if you still have the original hand book for the car it might be written in their but the chances of you having this is very slim.
The only other place you can get the code from is a ford dealers they have these code wriiten on computer for this problem.
What ill do whilst i wait for your reply is ask around people i know as im a car mechanic so ill ask around for you ok ill get back to you shortly

Since my battery went dead my stereo is asking 4 a code 2000 w reg fiesta

The safest and easiest way of no risk here is to contact a ford dealer and pay to get the code.Please note that you will get the same code that the car left the factory with and immobiliser and key codes which is better than some internet unlocks...If you have the owner's manual then you would normally have the code in it.
