1992 Volvo radio code

The radio code is an anti-theft precauction, we do not have access to them, there is a web site that will sell the info to you, radiocode.com, the dealer can also provide this info.

Radio code


It may say C0D3 or something similar.
Assuming that the radio is original to the car, collect your VIN and fill out the Volvo's customer service form. You should have an answer in a business day or two.

Battery died, got jump, now the radio is off and needs a code for 2001 Volvo S40, that I don't have.


Hi!!
When the battery is disconnected or drained and you restore power, the radio will say 'CODE' on the display. This is your cue to find the easily misplaced credit-card lookalikes that have your radio's code written on it. New Volvo owners got two, I believe.

Dealers have your radio code in a database, and can look it up. Many will give you the code over the phone if you've lost your card. You can call any Volvo dealer: they all have the same computer system to look up your Volvo radio code.

Sometimes the code is written on the radio itself. But you have to pull the radio out (not hard) to see it.

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?

If you don't have the code, call the dealer to ask what they need from you. Don't pay the dealer any money for the code! If they want money, hang up and call another.


Good Luck!! A 4 THUMBS UP rating for this solution will be highly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

I have a 1992 volvo 940 and the radio lock up when i change the battery, and i bought it used, how can i get the unlock code


Ring a major volvo dealer. If you give them your engine or chassis number they should be able to provide you with the unlock code providing the radio is the original one fitted when new. Enter code using preset station numeric buttons. Write the code on the back of your sun visor for next time
