Further information on decoding your Volvo car radio.

Using our Volvo stereo 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 radio code based on the vehicles chassis number or registration may not work, these include:


At Radio-Code, we provide stereo codes based on the unique serial number of the car radio, regardless of what it was fitted to originally.  Our stereo codes have proven to be more accurate than main dealer's because of this.



What our customers have to say...

Thank you so much I have been without my radio for a while now! so prompt and easy with your service it all works fine now.. Jane Brooker


this supposed to be a feedback: the code I received immediately upon payment worked wonders, thanks a lot!!!. Kristof


. Paula Lawrenson


thank you .your service was very good . cheers. Les Pearce


Great service! Code received. As 'instant' as it says on the tin! Even more importantly - it works! Good value, even at the new price. The hints on how to enter the code also much appreciated, as no manual to hand. My 11-year old BMW is now restored to 'as original' condition with a proper BMW Radio/CD to replace the nasty after-market unit a previous owner had added. The guy who sold me the BMW/Blaupunkt unit reckoned it didn't need a code. I think he was confusing 'radio code' with the item being 'coded' (in BMW speak) to the vehicle, as some later BMWs have. I was sceptical, but went ahead with the purchase anyway. Without your system, the purchase would have been wasted, or a very expensive trip to the dealer (who would probably just pop round the back and quickly go online to your site anyway!). Thanks. Pleasure to be a customer with you. Real pleased I found your site. . Henry


I live in Cork Southern Ireland. For to get the code here I was asked to remove the radio and leave it with the people for 7 to 10 days and the price was to be 3 times your charge. Your service was unbelievable fast and efficient even when I had difficulty in putting in the code your reply was within 1 hour and it worked. I work in the commercial vehicle trade and will advise all about your site.. Jerry Ryan
