My 2000 Escort's battery went out when I left the lights on for 3-4 days over Thanksgiving (I was in to much of a hurry). I got it rebooted, but since then a friend let me know that my alternator wasn't working. We've ordered another to put in ourselves since money is tight. My major question is that the radio hasn't been working since then, a car repair person said that it needed a code to reset it. Is this true and where would I get that code, also how and where would I enter it? Also my automatic lock that I carry on my key chain stopped working. The same person told me that just by chance it's small battery went out and needs replacement. Does this sound right? One last question, Can a cigarette lighter be instaled? Thanks so much for the help. Money is tight all around these days, so you are a blessing!
