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.

Thank you for the new code Sam, I now have music! . Ian Irvine


Thank you for your expedient service. We used the instructions as given on your website for removing the radio and obtained the serial number that way without having to disconnect the wires. To think we went several months without the use of the radio expecting to be a costly business seems quite funny now. This was cheap and easy. Thanks again!. M Chenery


Omg , I cant believe how easy that was .. no music since my flat battery in Nov and no time to sort it. I'm impressed.. Sharon Forrest
