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.



What our customers have to say...

Thank you very much for helping me get my car radio work. When I failed to get my code to work I telephoned you and one of your technicians took me through stage by stage until my car radio worked. Now I can enjoy my drive wherever I go because my music is back on the radio.. Nelson


I just wanted to say many thanks for your excellent service! The code you supplied worked first time, and I have now written the number down in a safe place should I ever need it again. So please don't take offence when I say that I hope I will not personally be a repeat customer! I will however, recommend your website to any of my friends who find themselves code less, and at the mercy of their local dealership. Using your service saved me 8 pounds! My local Peugeot dealer swore blind that they were the only ones who would be able to supply me the code, and that the cost of 20 + vat was standard regardless of who I went to. Once again, many thanks.. Robert Wakeford
