We are able provide you with the original manufacturers security code required to activate your Philips car radio after power loss.
Its fast and easy to obtain the radio code for your Philips stereo, simply follow the 3 simple steps on the right.
Never take the serial number from any printed paperwork or user guides, since this may not match the actual Philips radio fitted to the car. Instead, take the serial number from either a label or an engraving on the top or side of your Philips stereo, to ensure the supplied Philips radio code is accurate.
Once you receive the code, you can use our Free Radio Code Entry Help section to assist you with entering the code.
Philips 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 Philips radio has been removed from the vehicle.
Examples of serials include:
By using our online Philips 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 the 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 the 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 radio code based on the 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 the 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.
Hi I was sceptical about this working on my Vauxhall CDR 300 but I have to say it worked perfect. Even the code given to me by the main dealer didn't work but I guess that is because it says 'radio code 6184' and the bit that says 'cd code is blank'. I think it must have had this unit fitted as an upgrade.Anyway it worked so great stuff and thank you!. Keith
Thanks, it worked great. Excellent Service. Mario Zamudio Mendez

Dear SirsMany thanks for the Clarion Radio code. I had the original in my wallet for years, but when I went to look it was nowhere to be found.I was going to buy a new stereo, but you have saved the day. Again many thanks.. G. Ryan
Just a note to say thanks for the code to unlock my radio - so worth the £8.99 to have music in the car again, and all done in a matter of seconds. Cheers.. Jennifer Underwood
