Question about Philips Car Audio & Video
You'll need to either take the vehicle to your nearest Renault dealer with proof of ownership, or simply visit a Renault dealer with the vehicle VIN number and proof of ownership. Either way, they can then look up the radio code for you.
Dealers are allowed to charge for supplying the information, but will usually provide it for free if you're a regular customer or are buying parts or servicing from them. Note that if the radio has ever been changed, then the VIN number record will be useless and Renault will need to look up the code using the radio serial number instead: this may mean that the radio must be removed in order to access the number.
If all this seems awkward, then bear in mind that it is meant to be so: the security code wouldn't be much use if it was too easy to obtain. But you may save yourself some time and effort if you look at every bit of paperwork you have for the car as it's often written somewhere, and owners often defeat the purpose of the code by writing it on the inside of the glovebox or other storage areas in the car.
Finally, there are some online traders who claim to be able to supply you with the code. Most still need the radio serial number and some will just take your money and fail to provide what you need, so exercise caution and only deal with proven trustworthy traders.
Good luck and I hope that you will kindly take a moment to rate my answer.
