Re: I need the radio Code for my VOLVO S40 1999 2.000 cc
I found three solutions somewhere, hope one works for you!
Good luck! Just tell me which worked.
I am wish to import a S40 too, can you give me the exporter's name and site?
#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.

Factory Volvo radios have electronic locks in them to prevent theft. Any time that power is disconnected from the radio a code must be re-entered to make the radio operational again. This code is available from any Volvo dealer's service department but most of them want you to appear in person with the car (to prove ownership) before they will give the code. The instructions for entering the code are in the owners manual or can be easily described by the dealer.
If you do not have the code. look in owners manual some times it is written in there or there is a card with code on it. if not you need to go to a volvo dealer and they can get the code for you. You may have to pay them for it.
