Further information on decoding your Ford car radio.

Using our Ford radio 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 your radio code.
Usually the code will be based on the 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 your vehicles chassis number or registration may not work, these include:


At Radio-Code, we provide radio codes based on the 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...

Wow, great service. I was a bit sceptical at first, but when the code worked I was over the moon with joy, thank you very much. Peter Hooper


Thanks everything worked brilliantly first time after years of trying. Thanks again. Sheila


Thought I'd lost a limb since having my battery changed and subsequently losing my stereo. Thanks to radio code I was able to get my radio up and running again with consummate ease. Superb guys and thanks again. Terry Stanners


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.


Just a quick thank you, just bought the car and the previous owner had not bothered finding out the code after removing the battery. Less than 3 minutes and your company had the code back to me and 'Bingo' I can now listen to Wogan again on my 30 mile commute of a morning. Again many thanks and I will recommend you service with confidence. . Russ Wibrew


Thank you. I received the code instantly and was dancing in the car with in the hour. Will definitely recommend you . A Gordon
