I'm thinking of replacing the radio/cassette unit in my 1998 Ford Fiesta with something contemporary. I am wondering about radio codes. This is because a year or so ago the battery was stolen(!) from the car. After I had replaced it, there was no subsequent problem with the radio 'locking' or anything like that.
I bought the vehicle second hand, and do not know what the radio code is, if it indeed exists. I am a bit concerned that on buying and fitting a new unit, I may find (unlike when replacing the battery), that I will be asked for a code.
Do all 1998 Ford Fiestas have radio codes and will I need one if I replace the current unit? And, if so, does anyone have any thoughts about why I didn't need one to reset the radio after I replaced the battery?
