Additional information about Clarion radio codes and decoding

Using our Clarion radio code service, you will not only be saving yourself money, but also the additional time which can be involved in trying to get your code from a vehicle main dealer. Most main dealers will request that you first book in your car with them, along with having to take proof of ownership along before they apply for your Clarion code.
Under most circumastances the code they supply will be derived frome either the vehicle registration or the Chassis number. If the radio has been replaced at any stage in its lifetime, this will be the incorrect code.

There are a various reasons why a radio code based on your vehicle chassis number or registration may not work, these include:


At Radio-Code, we provide radio codes based on the unique serial number of the unit.  Our radio codes have proven to be more accurate because of this.



What our customers have to say...

Excellent service,thank you. My stereo worked immediately. . Dave Stansfield


Great service! Code received. As 'instant' as it says on the tin! Even more importantly - it works! Good value, even at the new price. The hints on how to enter the code also much appreciated, as no manual to hand. My 11-year old BMW is now restored to 'as original' condition with a proper BMW Radio/CD to replace the nasty after-market unit a previous owner had added. The guy who sold me the BMW/Blaupunkt unit reckoned it didn't need a code. I think he was confusing 'radio code' with the item being 'coded' (in BMW speak) to the vehicle, as some later BMWs have. I was sceptical, but went ahead with the purchase anyway. Without your system, the purchase would have been wasted, or a very expensive trip to the dealer (who would probably just pop round the back and quickly go online to your site anyway!). Thanks. Pleasure to be a customer with you. Real pleased I found your site. . Henry


Thanks very much, will now have music as I drive again! pleasure doing business. Fiona Spence


Hi from Canada, your service is great, it took me 5 minutes to pull the radio out and less than 2 minutes to get the code and it cost 4 times less than what the dealer was asking. Thanks a lot.. Luc Brousseau


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


Dear Lois Many thanks for the Radio Code below that you sent me. I installed it today and it works perfectly. Excellent service and quick too.. Donald High
