The unlock code should be in the owners manual,usually a sticker on the inside cover

SOURCE: Radio code for volvo s40

If the display says "Off" the radio is locked from incorrect code input.

You need to leave the key in the accessory position with the radio on (display reads 'Off') for about two hours.
After that it should ask for he code again. You have three tries before it locks again.
Some radios are different, but typically you use the knob to adjust the numbers, push the knob in to move to the next number

SOURCE: I need the radio Code for my VOLVO S40 1999 2.000 cc

Hello,
I found three solutions somewhere, hope one works for you!
Good luck! Just tell me which worked.

#1
. It went like this, turn radio on, when “code” is displayed push and hold “6” while pushing “power & volume” knobs at the same time. Let radio turn off while continuing to hold “6”. Turn radio back on by pushing both “power & volume” knobs at the same time. It worked on 98 V90.

#2 (JAPAN IMPORT)
-I emailed 2 Volvo Dealers and both replied 6666 is the code for all used Volvo imports from Japan, so I switched the ignition key to pos I for over 2.5 hours and "CODE" appeared, then pushed button 6 four times and the Radio swiched On. Problem solved.

#3
-we altered the client access code input protocol by “rebooting” the stereo (turning it off and on using the combined volume/power input) and, at the same time, holding down the “stereo preset 6” button. The stereo then transitioned into the authenticated mode, allowing clients to listen to NPR without proving identity.

SOURCE: where is the fuse for the radio , stereo for volvo s40 xs

Passenger compartment fuses are all behind the drivers side (left) kick panel. You should only need a #2 philips head screw driver to remove 4 or 5 screws. After you remove the screws gently pull out on the lower right corner to disengage a plastic tab. The panel then should now come out disengaging metal tabs on the upper to corners. Fuses are on the left.

SOURCE: radio display reads off for 2002 s40 volvo/cd player wont work

Hello there. I have a Volvo V70 that I bought recently and it had the same problem. I left the ignition switched on for about two hours and after that time the reading had changed from OFF to Code. I then entered the code and Hey Presto It worked. When I purchased the car it too had no code. I went to a Volvo Dealership, with proof of ownership of the vehicle i.e. Log Book and proof of ID , I used my Passport, and they gave me the radio code.The only dowside was I had to pay them £10 for this code but I feel it was worth it. I suggest you try this too. Good Luck.

Unlock a volvo sc-816 radio


The SC-816 is made by MITSUBISHI and the code cannot be calculated for free from anywhere on the Internet.

Try your Volvo Main Dealer....or a Decoding service who will plug it into a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)

Howver many Volvo Dealers offer the code for free provided you can quote the car VIN number and the radio serial number
