How do I find the serial number for a Ford stereo?

How do I find the serial number for a Ford stereo? I have a radio/cassette in my 1998 Ford Ka and need to get a code.

Before you get a code, you need your radio serial number. To get this, turn on your radio and hold the preset buttons 1 and 6 for two to three seconds, the cycle will begin, wait until your serial shows and make a note. It should start with a V or an M.

If it doesn't display try holding down buttons 2 and 6.

Once you have your serial number, you can get a code here: www.radiocodeford.com/honest-john

Excellent drive. Strikes a fine balance between handling fun and ride comfort. Plenty of used ones around. Peanuts to run if you find a good one.
