Where to now?

While our service is no longer available, good alternatives exist. We recommend Peter Smith at Restored Classic for codes by email (contact restoredclassic[at]aol.com), and DND Services (www.dndservices.co.uk) for units which require a physical re-code. The higher profile online decoders are generally trustworthy, but always be wary. Avoid downloading apps that promise to give your code - these often carry viruses; it isn't worth the risk.


A big 'thank you' to all our customers

Our Radio Code Service has now ceased operation, due to the retirement of the business owner. Thank you to all our past customers for trusting us over the years, especially those who sent comments of appreciation after using the service. We have always tried to be a trusted, personal service that helps cut through the confusion.

"Struggled for days with various garages including Ford main dealer... wanted to keep my car for a week. Kevin replied instantly and in detail... code worked first time... no hesitation in recommending these guys. They know their stuff!"


InCar Technology Help, Advice & History

A video tutorial on setting up the type of equaliser built into many car stereo units; I use a spectrum analyser to help show how the frequency curve changes. For now I'm retaining some older car stereo content, as some may still find it useful:
