I cant get a stereo hooked up

Your question is not very specific but I expect that you have discovered that Volvo does not bother to color code their sound system wiring. They seem to use whatever wire they have laying around, so there is no particular pattern, and often all the wires are the same color.
If your car still has the original stereo plugs, you can buy a wiring kit from the installation shop at Best Buy. It will have a plug that plugs into the Volvo plug and wires that are color coded to standard color coding so you can figure out how to connect it to the new stereo. I not only had to put in a new stereo, but I had to bypass the original amplifier in my '91. The kit from Best Buy made it all Plug and Play!

How to get security code for your car radio

hi, if you have this problem with your car's radio or entertainment system then the only thing you can do to get this code is by taking your car and owner's documents to your nearest main dealership.

The reason you can only get the code from a main dealership is that the car company's when the fit any entertainment system they have to by law put in security measures to put thieves off targeting your car for the entertainment system. So the car company's don't give anybody else access to this information as a criminal could have stolen your stereo and be able to use it so this code can only be gotten from the main dealers and as long as you have the owners documents.

This security system makes thieves think again about stealing car stereos due to the fact that they cant get the code so all modern cars have this security feature.
The way most people need this code is usually due to having the battery disconnected to have work done to the vehicle and then when you put the battery back on the stereo then asks for this code.

These codes are not common knowledge and you can only get them from the dealership so take you car and owners documents with you and they will then give you the code, they wont charge for this but make sure you take ID to prove you are the registered owner.

Once you have the code its best you write it down some where safe in case you ever need it in the future and its also handy to pass on to somebody buying your car should you come to sell it.

I know its a pain but at least this way its very un-likely that a thief would target your vehicle and take your stereo due to the fact they cant get the codes.

Replace battery, now radio asks for a code. Why?

hi, unless the code has been written down inside the owners hand book the only other place you can then get it from is the main dealers you will need to take your car and any owners documents you have and also some id they will then give you the code.

This is the only place you can get it from, they do this so that thieves cant steal your stereo then ring up and get the code.

i know its a pain but it puts thieves off stealing your stereo as its then no good to them as they cant get the code.

I have a 2004 chevy trailblazer i need the stereo code its locked

I had this problem myself. You can get the code by simply giving the dealership a call and giving them the stereo serial number. Many dealerships put these on a sticker on the glove box somewhere. Or you may have to get it from the bottom of the stereo itself. I lucked out and found it on the glove box, sometimes they even put it on the outside of the glove box on either side. Once I had this all I had to do was call the parts dept at the dealership and the guy gave me the code.
This should help
