If you’re looking for a Skoda radio code, you’ve come to the right place. You will be able to use our online radio code generator to do just that. Firstly though we will first explain to you why your radio has become locked in the first place. We will then explain to you what you need to unlock your radio and exactly how you can go about doing it.
Why does your radio become locked?
When your radio was manufactured it was designed with an in-built security system. This means that whenever your radio is tampered with or removed from your vehicle, the security system will lock your radio. This means that you will need to enter a valid radio code in order to unlock it.
The radio code which unlocks your radio is unique to your radio and is linked to the serial number of it. This therefore means that there is an incredibly low chance that someone else will have the same radio code as you. A radio code is usually between four and eight digits long depending on the make and model of the radio, it’s technically possible to guess a radio code however radios usually stop you entering radio codes after a certain amount of failed attempts.
The reason for radio manufacturers implementing this feature was due to the rapid rise of thefts of radios from vehicles and the attempted thefts. Both causing insurance premiums to rise. Victims not only had their radios stolen but their vehicles damaged in the process. The only problem with this is sometimes radios become locked by mistake and genuine owners of these radios are unable to unlock them as they don’t know the radio code. This can happen for a few different reasons such as a recent battery replacement, a minor collision or a software glitch. This is a rare occasion but it does happen and it seems to be on the rise.
How to Unlock a Skoda Radio
Step 1) You will first need to turn on all of the electronics inside your vehicle. You can do this by firstly inserting your cars key into the ignition and turning it until you hear a click, you can then stop. If you have a keyless ignition you will need to insert your cars key fob into the dashboard and press it in once without depressing the vehicles clutch.
Step 2) Your radio will now be displaying a message on its screen asking you to enter a valid radio code. We will explain in the next section of this guide the whole process of generating your own Skoda radio code for free.
