Further information on decoding your Smart car radio.

Using our Smart radio decoding system, you are not only saving money, but also time and the hassle which is involved. Most vehicle main dealers require you to book in your vehicle and take the car and proof of ownership along before they apply for the radio code.
Usually the code will be based on your vehicle registration or Chassis number which can mean you are not getting the code for the current unit fitted to the car, especially if the radio has been replaced at any stage in its lifetime.

There are a number of reasons why a stereo code based on the vehicles chassis number or registration may not work, these include:


At Radio-Code, we provide radio codes based on the 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.

I bought a second hand Fiesta and we couldnt get the code anywhere. I tried this site and I admit I was dubious the code was instant and it worked! No more silent car journeys for me! Thanks again, will recommend. Emma Grant

JUST TO SAY THANKS FOR YOUR EXCELLENT SERVICE. TRIED MAIN DEALER FOR CODE BUT THE PRICE WAS EXTORTIONATE. AFTER SEARCHING THE NET I FOUND YOUR SITE AND TYPED IN THE SERIAL. NO. OF MY RADIO TO FIND THE CODE WAS INSTANTLY AVAILABLE. I PAID THE MONEY AND RECEIVED A PROMPT E-MAIL CONTAINING THE CODE. I CHECKED THE CODE ENTRY HELP ALSO AVAILABLE ON YOUR SITE AND THEN INPUTTED THE CODE. HEY PRESTO MUSIC AT LAST!?SUPERB SERVICE.. Nigel Scourfield


A quick note of thanks for your service.......yeak I know I paid but the fiver was worth it! My wife's beloved 1997 Fiesta Ghia had a minor job done at a local garage who disconnected the battery! We had mislaid our service manual with the radio code. Removal tools came from a metal coat hanger and I think the total time from cutting the coat hanger, sending the code, paying by PayPal, resetting the radio and locking the car took no more than 3 minutes!!! .
