You'll need the following;

Mk6 fiestas are usually all fitted with the same wiring loom and if something hasnt been fitted the wiring for it is normally still there just hidden/taped up. Remove the steering wheel cowl and have a look look for the connection you should find its somewhere there

Can you see any loose connectors anywhere? It my be set right back into the rear of the steering wheel-follow the wiring back. You also tend to find there will be a connection at the rear of the stereo-again this might be taped up out of the way/not immediately obvious
