How to Decode your Car Radio

  1. First remove the radio from the car. Our removal guides should help with this.

  2. Locate the serial number, using the illustration(s) as a guide

  3. Enter the serial number into the radio code search

  4. If available, you will be given the option to purchase your code along with delivery information

Once you receive the code, you can use our Free Radio Code Entry Help section to assist you with entering the code.



Serial Number's

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 radio has been removed from the vehicle.

Examples of serials include:



More info about retrieving your lost code.

By using our online radio 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 the vehicle registration or VIN number of the car itself, which is fine if you have owned your car from new. However, receiving the radio code days later only to find that it did not work is yet another inconvenience.

There are a number of reasons why a stereo code based on your vehicle registration or vin number may not work, including:


At Radio-Code, we don't provide radio 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 radio codes have proven to be more accurate than main dealer's because of this.



What our customers have to say...

Quick note of thanks for excellent service. Radio was back up and running less than 1 hour from initial enquiry. Thoroughly recommended. Bruce Dempsey


Many thanks for the really prompt reply. It worked! I am so chuffed. Vauxhall wanted more than twice the amount you charge. It's funny, but it's the people who cost so much more than you that say to steer clear of websites such as yours. Well, all I can say is that I'm glad I gave it a go for the sake of L9. The after-sales help was invaluable and topped of a great service. Long may you continue and succeed.. Phil Joel


Wonderful, thank you, my radio is now working. Regards. Tom Hooper


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
