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:

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...

Have Ford/Blaupunkt Radio, Ford dealer could not get code, not the right number on it they told me. About to throw the unit away. A google search lead me to your site. Job done in minutes, also got another code for my sons car, he's well happy now. Both at a price I was happy to pay. Thank you. Bryan Le Blond


Thank You. Bought this Zafira 2 years ago with no radio code, but you have brought it back into service. Great Job, and so easy. John Finegan


I'm astounded! I removed my ford radio last year to use a different one and when I went to put it back to sell my car I realised I didn't have the code. Thought it would be a nightmare to get it off Ford who would charge me a fortune. I did a quick search on the net and your company came up. I was a bit dubious, but put serial number in and bought the code. It worked immediately! Very impressed, thank you. Only took me two minutes. I'll recommend you to others. . Karl.


Thank you very much for your email. I paid and got the code for the radio. It works great. Thanks for the good service. . K Pham


Thank you for your excellent service in sorting out the code for my Rover 75.. Les Perrett
