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.

Thank you so much for the code to my car radio, being a rover I didn't expect to be able to get the code but my sons girlfriend suggested looking on the web. I found your site and the rest is history.......... it took me longer to get the radio out of the car than it did you to find the code. great service at an affordable price. no more long silent journeys to work. thanks again..
