More info about retrieving your lost Philips code.

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.



What our customers have to say...

Many thanks for the code - worked first time - excellent service!. John Cooper


Thank you SO MUCH for sending my radio code!!!! I have been without my radio for 4 months and thought I might have to throw my perfectly good one away and buy another. The dealership where I bought my car could not help me out at all because they didn't have the code in their records as it came from Ireland and had a registration number change... they were no help at all. I am thrilled! Thank you! Regards, S Godsmark. Susan Godsmark


brilliant service - worked first time. Mark Hewis


I live in Cork Southern Ireland. For to get the code here I was asked to remove the radio and leave it with the people for 7 to 10 days and the price was to be 3 times your charge. Your service was unbelievable fast and efficient even when I had difficulty in putting in the code your reply was within 1 hour and it worked. I work in the commercial vehicle trade and will advise all about your site.. Jerry Ryan
