Further information on decoding your Audi car radio.

Using our Audi 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...

Just to say thank you for your help!! Wonderful! Worked straight away and saved me some money than going to the dealership or a private radio decoder! I will recommend you to all my friends! Many thanks. Janine Plimbley


Hi Sam Thank you for a fast and efficient service I am very pleased and I am now enjoying my music in the car again! For the readers of this recommendation we are not in the habit of doing things like this but in Sam's case at Radio-code.co.uk I have made the exception, as we have found him to be the exception. Thanks. Antony Colton


Hi I was sceptical about this working on my Vauxhall CDR 300 but I have to say it worked perfect. Even the code given to me by the main dealer didn't work but I guess that is because it says 'radio code 6184' and the bit that says 'cd code is blank'. I think it must have had this unit fitted as an upgrade. Anyway it worked so great stuff and thank you!. Keith


Excellent Service Paypal makes it quick to pay and my code came back in seconds and the instructions where very easy to follow even unlocking the radio after I entered the wrong code the code supplied worked perfectly I would definitely recommend this service to friends and family. Mike McCabe
