Your radio has been replaced, not uncommon for that year and the SC series of radios. The dealer will need to remove the radio (real easy to do) and has to get 2 numbers from the tag on top and query them through the Volvo DMS system. Note that if you enter the wrong code 3 times the radio will say OFF and you will have to leave the key in position 1 for up to 4 hours till the radio anti-theft resets and you can try again.

Code radio


In the owners maunel you should have a card with the radio code on it.

The radio will only display EEE or OFF when the wrong code has been entered and the radio is locked depending on model - this is due to the battery being disconnected and the incorrect radio code being entered 3 times. You will neet to reset the radio. To do this the radio has to be on for either 2 or 4 hours - see the manual for your model. If you got the code from a card from Volvo, and it didn't work, then the radio has been changed or it has been reset by the dealer and your current code is invalid. You will have to pull the radio and find the serial & model number, and get Volvo to look up the code for that radio or the dealer may be able to lookup the radio code via vin# from Volvo. The dealer can reset the radio and enter a new code. When the radio is "ready" to accept an unlock code the display will say "codE". You will need this code if your battery is ever disconnected.

My 2000 v70 xc had the battery disconnected and the factory stereo needs a four digit code to work again. i got the car used and need to know how to obtain that code from volvo. there is no dealer nearby


Sadly:
There is only 2 options.
1. Your radio code is in your paperwork for your car (Its on a hard plastic card) Find it.
2. Take your registration to Vin and Ser Number for your radio to your local dealer.
These codes are a guarded secret and no one code fits all.
Hope this tip helps guide you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

I need to find out the radio unlock code for my 2000 Volvo Station Wagon V70 Vin# YV1LZ56D442662009


Few suggestions:

1. check the owners manual to see if the number is written down or found on the Volvo cards.
2. remove the radio, sometimes folks inscribe them on the unit, don't ask why but they simply do!
3. most costly is to take it to the dealer.

Problems with radio code


Your radio is now in "off" mode. To get it back to "code" mode you need to have power to the radio for 2 hours. This can be accomplished by either driving the car for 2 hours, or putting the key into position 1 on the ignition, but make sure to turn off the fan as it will drain the battery in 2 hours. Once you have "code" back you can enter the 4 digit radio code. Caution, many of these radios have been replaced so the code that the dealer gives you may be wrong. If entered and it comes back "EEEEEE" that means it is the wrong code. The radio must be pulled and get the factory serial number from the top of the unit.

Hope this helps!

Same problem with Volvo radio


Your info is correct about what to do when it reads "OFF". As far as I know, you need to go to a dealer to get the code. They access it through their computer system with the VIN and the radio serial #.
