Open your glovebox and look either inside the box, or on the outside black plastic--there should be a sticker with two sets of numbers. I don't remember how many digits the radio code is, but the radio code is on the sticker on the glovebox when it's in the open position.

Please after changing the battery of my VOLVO v40 1999 wagon car the radio requested code can you help me

This is a anti-theft device built into your radio designed to foil robbers. When the radio looses power, the radio locks up. This makes the radio worthless on the black market. The thieves know this and don't steal it as a result. Your owners manual tells you to clear the code if there will be a power loss (changing the battery). There may not be a recovery procedure.

In the GM (1995) version of this system, there is no recovery (if there were, what would be the point of the system?). I don't know the specifics of the Volvo system. You may want to talk to your dealer before you replace your radio. I am sure you will have to prove ownership of the vehicle.

Thanks for your question @ this morning.

Hello, My 2002 kia keeps asking for a code for the radio. It has never asked that before and Im afraid I dont know the code. Please help me with this problem. Thanks for your time, Sonia

That is part of the Antitheft system. Either you had a dead battery and had to jump start your car or the battery was disconnected for one reason or another. The only way to get your radio unlocked is to take the car to a Kia dealer. Make sure you have your photo ID and proof of registration with you. They will only unlock a radio for the registered owner of the vehicle. This is to keep someone from stealing your radio and using it in their car.

Mercedes radio unlock code

The only way without removing the radio and paying for code search is to go to your Merc dealership with the Log Book/Title proof ownership/identification they will be glad to give you the required code.
Good Luck!

What you probably have to do is enter a security code to unlock the radio - it's an anti-theft idea done by Saab, that Audi and BMW and others also do, to try and make it harder to re-sell stolen radios.

Go to the dealer with photo ID, the title to the car, and your registration - that way you prove who you are and that you own the car, and they can look up the code for you. They may charge you up to an hour's labor for this. Make sure they give you the code though, and don't just have a technician put it in. If you don't get the code from them, you'll have to pay them the next time too.
