do not take the serial from a user guideNever take the serial number from any printed paperwork or user guides, since this may not match the actual Siemens VDO radio fitted to the car.  Instead, take the serial number from either a label or an engraving on the top or side of your Siemens VDO stereo, to ensure the supplied Siemens VDO radio code is accurate.

More info about retrieving your lost Siemens VDO code.

By using our online Siemens VDO 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 your 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 your 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 your 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 your 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...

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


I have been given the run around by several fiat dealers some of whom said I would need a new radio and some who would charge me the earth and just when I was about to give up I came across your site and PRESTO! I can now listen to the radio after 4 months! Many and Huge Thanks!. Ben Spurling
