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.



What our customers have to say...

Just a note to thank you for your superb service yesterday. Having (mistakenly!) gone to one of your competitors for a code for my Becker radio I was sold a code number, which did not work. I was assured that the number was correct & my radio must have been recoded & would have to go into a workshop for recoding at even greater expense. Fortunately I called yourselves before following this route & was provided with the correct number, saving me much time, trouble & money. I know where to go in future!! Many thanks again.
