This site is 100% genuine! I've tried so many ways to go get my radio code. I was reluctant to pay £4.99 in case it didn't work, but I'm happy to say it did!

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.
