We generate all Jaguar unlock codes instantly, so whether you drive an XJ or an F-Pace, whether you listen to Capital FM or your own tunes – we'll get you listening to your music again in minutes.
Your radio code will be instantly generated on-screen as well as automatically emailed to you the moment you pay.
When your Jaguar radio, stereo or sat nav unit becomes disconnected from the battery, usually due to a garage service or a low battery, it will automatically lock and prompt you to enter its unique radio unlock code. As this is an anti-theft feature it's not possible to unlock a Jaguar radio without this code, but getting hold of your radio code is an easy process that can be done in minutes. Many dealerships and online generators decode the radio code from the VIN number, but this code will be incorrect if the radio has ever been changed in the vehicle's lifetime.
The most accurate way to get your Jaguar radio's code is by decoding it from the radio's serial number. This will be an M followed by 6 numbers, such as M123456.
There are two methods to find your Jaguar serial number – a fast one and a slightly slower one.
Always double-check that the serial number you enter matches the serial number on your radio's display or sticker label, as we are usually unable to offer refunds for radio codes decoded from incorrect serial numbers. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of serial numbers located elsewhere, such as on a radio pass card or other documentation, as this documentation is not guaranteed to be up to date.
If your Jaguar radio/stereo unit has number preset buttons, you may be able to reveal the serial number on the display without removing your radio. Try briefly holding down buttons 1 and 6 for at least 3 seconds. If nothing changes on your radio's display, try holding down buttons 2 and 6 instead.
If this method worked, the display will show your radio's M serial number, or may display a longer serial number with the M serial number towards the end of it.
If your radio doesn't change at all when holding down either 1 and 6 or 2 and 6, or your radio doesn't have any number buttons, then you'll need to remove your radio to get the serial number from its sticker label.
Don't worry – removing your radio isn't as hard as it sounds, but it is the hardest part of getting a radio unlock code, which means that once you've done it the rest is easy. For most Jaguar radio models, the only tools you will need are a standard Philips (round/crosshead) screwdriver and a pry tool, which can be found for cheap from your local Halfords or not-so-local Amazon store.

Note that we are currently only able to support Jaguar serial numbers beginning with M.
Once you have your serial number, all that’s left is to enter it into our Jaguar radio code decoder and generator at the top of this page.
Jaguar vehicles and radios that we are able to decode include:
Unfortunately, it's not possible to unlock a Jaguar radio asking for a code without entering the code. This is intentional as radio unlock codes were designed as an anti-theft feature to make it harder for thieves to steal and sell car radios.
Due to the costs of running a small business providing radio codes around the world 24/7, it's not possible to sustainably offer Jaguar radio codes for free. There are many decoding services out there that attract customers with the word "free" only to reveal a price at the very last second or fail to deliver a code at all (as shown by their reviews). Our prices will always be shown up-front, and our radio codes are already priced as low as possible while still allowing us to stay in business, provide reliable English-speaking support to customers and continue adding support for more models and manufacturers.
Not only were we the first radio decoding company to offer radio codes for all manufacturers at one fixed price, we were also one of the first to charge as low as £4.99 - before we came along virtually no popular decoding company offered radio codes at such an affordable price. To this day we still beat 95% of our competitors on price, without making you wait around for your code.
Unfortunately it's not possible to generate a Jaguar radio code from the registration plate at all. Although most dealerships and some online decoding sites do use the VIN to decode the radio code, this is not reliable due to being tied to the car rather than the radio. This means that if your radio was changed since it was first manufactured, a radio code decoded from the VIN will be incorrect. For this reason RapidRadioCodes - like most online decoders - decodes the radio code from the radio's serial number, which gives us the best chance of unlocking your radio.
All our Jaguar radio codes are decoded instantly, displayed on the screen immediately after payment and sent to your email at the same time. To ensure that your code and receipt are sent to you, double-check that the email you enter when paying for your radio code is correct. If it's been more than 2 minutes since you purchased your code and you haven't received your email, get in touch with us so we can look into why this might be. In most cases this is down to a misspelt email address.
This means an incorrect radio code has been entered 3 different times. To bypass this lock leave the ignition and radio on for up to 90 minutes until CODE is displayed again.
So you've located your serial number, entered it into our radio code generator, and received your decoded radio code in return. Congratulations! Now comes the best part: using your new radio code to unlock your Jaguar radio.
This process varies depending on your vehicle's radio. Each of our Jaguar radio codes come with simple instructions to enter your new code at no extra cost. To receive your entry instructions, double-check that your email address is spelt correctly at the payment stage. If it's been more than 2 minutes since you purchased your unlock code and you haven't received your email or receipt, get in touch with us so we can look into why this might be. This is usually down to a misspelt email address.
