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.
Thanks, it worked great. Excellent Service. Mario Zamudio Mendez
Hello,We use your website all the time to get radio codes. I must give credit it is very easy to use, with great tips and advise, and as yet have not had a single code that hasn't worked.. James Morgan
Thanks for an excellent service. Once I got the serial number you guys make it so easy.. Bill Emery
many many thanks for your speedy response to our cry for help re radio code. Radio is now restored to life, and my husband no longer a grumpy old man! Brilliant.. Angela McManus
Thank you VERY much. My car had to have its battery replaced at the last service, and despite making sure I had all the original paperwork which included the radio code, it just didn't work. It seems the previous owner to me had replaced his radio and not noted the new code.I travel from Fife to Glasgow for work on a regular basis, and the 2 hour journey with rush hour jams was becoming excruciating without and music to listen to -- or traffic reports to help me avoid the bad areas.Thanks once again for this valuable service. I now have music in my car!.
Brilliant, thank you should have come to you first rather than pay an exorbitant fee with the car dealer for the wrong number!!. Peter Groves
