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.

Siemens VDO Serial Number's

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.

Hi Sam Thank you for a fast and efficient service I am very pleased and I am now enjoying my music in the car again! For the readers of this recommendation we are not in the habit of doing things like this but in Sam's case at Radio-code.co.uk I have made the exception, as we have found him to be the exception. Thanks. Antony Colton


Just wanted to say a quick thank you! My parents car unexpectedly needed a new battery which left them with the radio needing a code that they didn't have! So having driven 250 miles to visit me it was superb to be able to get their unlock code from your site before they left to drive home! Within moments it was all working again! So I thank you, as does my mum and I'm certain Dad does too! Brilliant . Marcus Hann
