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.

Thank you so much Sam, it works perfectly. Much appreciated . Paul Dillon


Sam, You know I really thought I had just burned money by paying for a code with your company. I was actually very surprised to see your email this morning and amused by the code and your explanation of what I would have to do. I still had my doubts it would work. Guess what, it did work. You guys are awesome and I will pass your site onto others in my trade group as for being an option for unretrievable codes in the future. Of note the local dealer could not get me this code and this is why I went looking. Once again thanks for renewing my faith in people and companies on line.. Trent Cole


Top job, I'm very pleased with the outcome,short and sweet,I had the code from you in no time at all and the radio is working fine now. It would have cost much more if I brought it to a main dealer, Thanks again for a job well done.. Jason Flynn
