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.

Just wanted to say thanks for your awesome service!! Having completely fluffed entering the code I received on line (wrong serial no. given by myself and wrong method of entry to boot) I gave your office a call expecting the usual computer says no... it's against our t&c's etc. regarding changes to info supplied on line so you'll have to purchase another code. Instead I received a very refreshingly polite & down to earth response along with additional advice on code entry method for my radio model. All sorted in less than 5 minutes! In my line of work I spend a lot of time dealing with call centres etc. If only I could I'd send you a list of them to go in and show them how it's done! You have genuinely restored my faith in after sales customer service! Regards, Chris Heard.. Chris Heard
