We are able provide you with the original manufacturers security code required to activate your car radio after power loss.
Its fast and easy to obtain the radio code for your stereo, simply follow the 3 simple steps on the right.
Once you receive the code, you can use our Free Radio Code Entry Help section to assist you with entering the code.
car radios will normally contain a 14 digit serial number which can be found either printed on a label or engraved on the side of the unit.
These serials are only visible once the radio has been removed from the vehicle.
Examples of serials include:
Never take the serial number from any printed paperwork or user guides, since this may not match the actual radio fitted to the car. Instead, take the serial number from either a label or an engraving on the top or side of your stereo, to ensure the supplied radio code is accurate.
By using our online radio decoding service, you not only save yourself money, but also time and the additional hassle involved.
Most vehicle main dealers will require you to book an appointment and take the car and paperwork (v5 logbook) into them before they apply for your radio code.
Once they do apply for the code, 9/10 times it will be based on the vehicle registration or VIN number of the car itself, which is fine if you have owned your car from new. However, receiving the radio code days later only to find that it did not work is yet another inconvenience.
There are a number of reasons why a stereo code based on your vehicle registration or vin number may not work, including:
At Radio-Code, we don't provide radio codes based on the car, instead we provide the code based on the individual and unique serial number of your car radio, regardless of what it was fitted to originally. Our radio codes have proven to be more accurate than main dealer's because of this.

Fantastic. Had a customer here with no radio code for his Y reg Rover. Within seconds had the code, customer and myself very impressed. Many Thanks.. Scott Crandell
Thank you, it was with a little concern that we paid the money for a code. We went straight to the car after receiving the code, entered the number and the radio started immediately. Good work, so much easier than driving 40 miles to the main agent. . Edna Sayer
