Location of Serial No. on Sony Stereos

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 Sony radio fitted to the car.  Instead, take the serial number from either a label or an engraving on the top or side of your Sony stereo, to ensure the supplied Sony radio code is accurate.


How to Decode your Car Radio

  2. Locate the serial number, using the illustration(s) as a guide

  3. Enter the serial number into the Sony radio code search

Once you receive the code, you can use our Free Radio Code Entry Help section to assist you with entering the code.

More info about retrieving your lost Sony code.

By using our online Sony 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 the radio code.   Once they do apply for the code, 9/10 times it will be based on your vehicle registration or VIN number of the car itself, which is fine if you have owned the 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 stereo code based on the 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 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.

Thank you guys, My original Ford 4600 radio from my Ford Mondeo Guia is back working since I had to change battery. Ford asked $90,00 US dollars to retrieve the code which wasn't a good deal, for this price I'd buy a new one, but for less than 10% of this price Radio-Code.co.uk did the job. Thanks! . Erik Vianna
