Further information on decoding your Volvo car radio.

Using our Volvo 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.

I would like to thank you very much for successfully finding the radio code for my vehicle. Ford took the battery off when they serviced the vehicle. not having given me the code in the first place when the previous owner purchased the vehicle - from new - from Fords in Lincoln . They then had the cheek to say that they wanted 15.00 +VAT for finding my radio code. Many Thanks and will be recommending your site again. Regards . Steve Walker
