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.
Thank you so much for the code to my car radio, being a rover I didn't expect to be able to get the code but my sons girlfriend suggested looking on the web. I found your site and the rest is history.......... it took me longer to get the radio out of the car than it did you to find the code. great service at an affordable price. no more long silent journeys to work. thanks again..
