Call your local Ford dealership or better yet stop in with the car and be prepared to show your vehicle registration in your name. One they've verified it's your car, they should be able to look up your code (using the VIN number). Good luck!

Thanks. Good advice. I was hoping there was something on the car. Oh well

For security reasons such as theft protection you won't find a code in the car. Dealerships provide the codes to owners when first buying the car, but if you've lost it or bought the car from someone else your only option is your local Ford dealer since they're the only ones who can look it up. Just had another thought -- but it might be a long-shot. You might want to try a local car stereo shop -- they might be able to help get it reset. I'd call first so you don't waste a trip.
