We are able provide you with the original manufacturers security code required to activate your Philips car radio after power loss.
Its fast and easy to obtain the radio code for your Philips 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.
Philips 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 Philips 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 Philips radio fitted to the car. Instead, take the serial number from either a label or an engraving on the top or side of your Philips stereo, to ensure the supplied Philips radio code is accurate.
By using our online Philips 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 the 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 the 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 radio code based on the 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 the 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.

Would just like to say what a fantastic service, I nearly fell off my chair when my local dealer said it would cost around £225.00 to retrieve my radio code and then I found you guys and got the code for next to nothing, quick easy service. Thank you for restoring my faith and radio.. Dianne Gough
Really pleased with your service, it saved me a lot of money and hassle. You gave me spot on instructions, even when I thought "How do I enter the number 8 when I've only got six numbers?" you answered my question before I needed to ask it, so thanks again. I will definitely recommend you to anybody who needs a code. Many thanks. Karl Roberts
