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.

I just wanted to say thanks for providing this awesome service. I just bought a 2002 Land Rover and the battery was dead, and the dealer didn't know the code, and no 'code cards' were in the owners manual. Land Rover wanted to charge me $110 dollars to retrieve the code, and wanted to keep my car for an hour. You guys helped me solve this problem at a fraction of their cost and in just 5 minutes! Thanks again! . Philip Walker
