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...

Hi, Just thought I send a wee e-mail to say how helpful your Company and website were in getting the radio code for my Dad's Rover 45. Excellent from start to finish and the code worked first time. Couldn't ask for better. Regards,. George Turnbull

Just wanted to say thanks - the code provided worked brilliantly!. Michael Henson


Thanks so much for the prompt service for my Alfa Spider. My local dealer wanted to see the car and V5, and another website wanted me to send the unit to them ! Within an hour you emailed me the code and it worked first time !. Pete Honey


Thanks very much, will now have music as I drive again! pleasure doing business. Fiona Spence


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
