Siemens VDO Serial Number's

Siemens VDO 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 Siemens VDO radio has been removed from the vehicle.

Examples of serials include:

do not take the serial from a user guideNever take the serial number from any printed paperwork or user guides, since this may not match the actual Siemens VDO radio fitted to the car.  Instead, take the serial number from either a label or an engraving on the top or side of your Siemens VDO stereo, to ensure the supplied Siemens VDO radio code is accurate.

By using our online Siemens VDO 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 radio 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.

Hi Sam, Thats excellent thanks for that, I did put the serial number in wrong, This is the 7th code we've got from you know so we'll keep using you in the future, Thanks again.. Graham


Thank you so much for your very efficient service, I haven't been able to use the radio since it was disconnected by a mechanic and I realised I didn't have the code (it's a second hand car). I had no idea getting the missing code would be so quick, painless and cheap! Your free code entry instructions were also very helpful. . MARGRIET REARDON
