when the battery dies or is removed , the anti-theft code of the radio kicks in and the unit will not work again until a special code for that radio is reinstalled
the code could be in the user manual in the radio use section ,or there are sites on the net that may have the code for you
Hi Bob, Joe got in first, because that would have been my advise exactly! Find the power feed to the amp and then do what Joe advised. (Of course the choice of where you fit the switch is yours, you don't have to have it by your seat but it makes sense if you're driving alone) Regards John
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 @ FixYa.com this morning.
Most of the time the dealer will provide you with the radio codes and write them in your owner's manual. If you don't have them - you will have to get them from the dealer. They most likely will require you to provide proof of ownership.
As with many newr cars, Your radio probably had a security code which is required to reset it after the radio is removed or power was disconnected from it. You probably have the code written somewhere in your new car paperwork. If not, contact your dealer. They can probably guide you through resetting the code.
You have a factory stock code inside your owners manual(if you have the owners guide) that has the code to type into the radio to engage your stations and sound again.If you cannot locate the code card in your manual you will unfortunately have to physically remove the radio from the dash and write down the number off the side of the stock radio and call it in to the dealer and they can access your unlock code for ya..I hope I could help!!!
