Further information on decoding your Mercedes car radio.

Using our Mercedes stereo decoding system, you are not only saving money, but also time and the hassle which is involved. Most vehicle main dealers require you to book in your vehicle and take the car and proof of ownership along before they apply for the radio code.
Usually the code will be based on your vehicle registration or Chassis number which can mean you are not getting the code for the current unit fitted to the car, especially if the radio has been replaced at any stage in its lifetime.

There are a number of reasons why a radio code based on the vehicles chassis number or registration may not work, these include:


At Radio-Code, we provide stereo codes based on the unique serial number of the car radio, regardless of what it was fitted to originally.  Our stereo codes have proven to be more accurate than main dealer's because of this.



What our customers have to say...

Thank you VERY much. My car had to have its battery replaced at the last service, and despite making sure I had all the original paperwork which included the radio code, it just didn't work. It seems the previous owner to me had replaced his radio and not noted the new code. I travel from Fife to Glasgow for work on a regular basis, and the 2 hour journey with rush hour jams was becoming excruciating without and music to listen to -- or traffic reports to help me avoid the bad areas. Thanks once again for this valuable service. I now have music in my car! .


Thanks ! Your site was a great help. I did have the code for my radio , but couldn't remember how to enter it ? Kept trying, but had to wait every 4/5 days for radio to reset itself to try again ! Eventually came on here and 'whala'! Fantastic, great, super !!!! You don't half miss your music when it's not there ! Once again, Thank you Very Much, Kind Regards, Alex... . Alex
