Vauxhall Serial Number's

Vauxhall 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 Vauxhall radio has been removed from the vehicle.

Examples of serials include:

Location of Serial No. on Vauxhall Stereos

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 Vauxhall radio fitted to the car.  Instead, take the serial number from either a label or an engraving on the top or side of your Vauxhall stereo, to ensure the supplied Vauxhall radio code is accurate.

More info about retrieving your lost Vauxhall code.

By using our online Vauxhall stereo 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 your vehicle registration or VIN number of the car itself, which is fine if you have owned your car from new. However, receiving the stereo 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 stereo 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 stereo codes have proven to be more accurate than main dealer's because of this.



What our customers have to say...

Many thanks for the excellent service, even though my code was not 'instantly' available I still received it in a very acceptable time, just over 24 hrs. The code worked first time and I had a working radio in minutes. I would recommend your service to anyone who has lost their code. Thanks once again . John Rowan


Just wanted to say thanks for your awesome service!! Having completely fluffed entering the code I received on line (wrong serial no. given by myself and wrong method of entry to boot) I gave your office a call expecting the usual computer says no... it's against our t&c's etc. regarding changes to info supplied on line so you'll have to purchase another code. Instead I received a very refreshingly polite & down to earth response along with additional advice on code entry method for my radio model. All sorted in less than 5 minutes! In my line of work I spend a lot of time dealing with call centres etc. If only I could I'd send you a list of them to go in and show them how it's done! You have genuinely restored my faith in after sales customer service! Regards, Chris Heard.. Chris Heard
