    How to Reset the Radio


    • When the radio displays CODE, you may enter the code using the preset radio station buttons
    • For instance, my number is 1615, so when I get the CODE on the radio's display, I press the radio preset button 1, then the radio preset button 6, then the radio preset button 1, then the radio preset button 5.
    • If your radio says OFF, leave the ignition on in the first position for 2 1/2 to 3 hours in order for it to display CODE. Or, as forum member Rhett says: In my 1996 850, I can clear the OFF state by pulling the fuse for the radio (#7 in my car). That's a bit simpler than leaving the ignition in I for a couple of hours -- particularly if you don't have a garage.

    The four-digit code is unique to your radio; your neighbor's code will not work on your radio. So what to do if you've misplaced, or never received, the white card, like most people? Dealer trip.

    Dealers have vehicle-code pairs in a database, and can look yours up. Many will give you the code over the phone if you've lost your card.

    Other dealers will have you drive to their lot and speak to them in person. Because the dealer will need to read off the radio's serial number to cross-reference it with the unique code, bring your radio, and your Volvo. Some reportedly charge US$10-$100 for this. Hmmmmm. I suppose dealers can choose to charge for this, and we can choose to not go back, right?

SOURCE: I need radio code for

There is no easy solution for this one. However, there are two things that should get you jiving again. 1. Go through the hand book and see if the Code number is there. Many folks write it there so they don't forget. The second solution will require you to contact your main Volvo Dealer. They should have the codes in thier computer records.

Before calling them you need to arm yourself with the following: Make and model of the vehicle : Index Number (I think you would say Licence Plate): VIN Number (Vehicle Identification Number) which usually can be be found either on the drivers door panel or under the Bonnet (Hood) and who is the registered owner. If that's you then thats Okay.

When you call ask for the Service Department who will look up your car and all its codes and pin numbers will be there. The only drawback however would be if the radio has ever been replaced.
If it is a genuine Volvo Radio then a quick look for the serial number would help too.

Hope this solves your problem.

All the best

1997 volvo s90 anti-theft system reset


Not sure if it will work on a Volvo, but normally if the anti-theft system has been tripped just use the key to lock then unlock the door. If not, contact a Volvo dealer or local parts store for help.

I can turn the radio on on my Volvo S90. Could you tell me how to enter the code on a Volvo S90 1998?.


this is done by using het radios preset buttons. usually when you turn the car on the display will read "CODE". Simply type in your 4 digit code that is on the little white plastic card that came with your Volvo. (If you do not have this the dealership will they usually provide this information over the phone, but in some cases you need to bring them the car. I would have my VIN# and Radio ID# (its on the top of the radio itself) ready also to prevent the dealership from taking me for a labor rate for obtaining the ID themselves.

**If your radio is not in the "CODE" setting and is reading "OFF" then you have 2 options. you can either leave the car ignition in the 1st position (that is the first "click" when turning hte key) for about 2-3hours. or you can try pulling the fuse (#7 in most models) and then retrying the rasio code.

Good luck and don't forget to rate....

VOLVO s90 1997 clicking noise from wheel area


If it happens only on turns then its the outer axle cv joint.. If it happens all the time probably something stuck in a tire. Either way have the suspension visually inspected by a technician as soon as possible.
