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

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.

Thank you guys, My original Ford 4600 radio from my Ford Mondeo Guia is back working since I had to change battery. Ford asked $90,00 US dollars to retrieve the code which wasn't a good deal, for this price I'd buy a new one, but for less than 10% of this price Radio-Code.co.uk did the job. Thanks! . Erik Vianna
