We have been providing our services to the public and local garage dealerships, for the last 20 years. We specialise in Re-coding, Repairing and Fitting all makes of Car Radios, We can fit brand new or (your own used radios) and many other accessories for In Car Entertainment.
Many modern cars stereo systems have built-in anti-theft facilities some have removable front panels.
Some have separate displays
And some have security codes.
In the case of the security coded sets, a special code number (a copy of which is contained inside a microchip within the radio) must be entered before the radio will operate.
The idea being that if the radio is stolen, it cannot be used unless the secret code is known, so there is not much point in stealing it in the first place.
This idea in itself is quite a good one. However, there is a downside in that people do tend to forget their code numbers, which does not usually present any problems at first
Until the car battery goes flat. !!!
People try entering wrong codes into the radio and this causes it to lock up.
The fact is that most radios need decoding for perfectly legitimate reasons and not because they have been stolen!
This is where we can help!!!

NO PROBLEM Give us a call.
PEUGEOT CITROEN AND NEW VAUXHALL RADIOS
These Radios are now linked to the cars brain (ECU).
They do not need a code.
They are programmed with the cars chassis (VIN NUMBER),so they will only work in the car that they came from.
However if the radio goes faulty or is disconnected from the battery for a long period, the radio will lose the (VIN) number and will just bleep all the time though the cars speakers. VAUXHALL RADIOS will say LOCKED.
WE CAN RE-PROGRAM THESE RADIO’S So they will work in another car.
To enable us to do this we need the 17 digit chassis number of the car that the radio is to be fitted into. This can be found on your V5C registration document, or under the bonnet stamped in to the body, also it may be found in a small window of the front windscreen.
We also offer a full Radio Repair Service with a Guarantee on any work carried out.
