98 V70 Radio Code Problem

My daughter ran the battery down on our 98 V70 and had to get boosted. Of course the radio showed "CODE". She tried a few different codes and failed to get it to switch on. It now reads "OFF" and when I enter the correct code nothing happens. Is this something I can fix myself? Hate to waste all the time and $ going to the dealer to re-program or whatever. Inno D.

You need to call the dealer and have them get you the actual code for your call. if you bought the carr new or used from the dealer it will be on your sales agreement.

I have a 1998 volvo v70.and i don't know the radio code.


Hi,

These radio codes are not presented in radio for safety purpose and only your Volvo dealer can tell you these codes on producing the proof of ownership. These codes are generated based on your VIN number. After using the codes if it says "ERR" do not try anything else further. Remove the radio and take it to the dealer or you can write down the letters and numbers from the top of the radio and the dealer will get you the radio code with the help of those numbers.

Thank you !!

Need a code for radio on a 98 volvo v70


The only way this is possible if you contact a Volvo dealer and give them the ownership details of your vehicle. But this will only work if it is a factory fitted radio. If it is aftermarket you may have to contact the person or dealer you purchased it from for the code.
Check your owners manual it may have the code in there..hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Cant find code for radio


My husband had the same issue with not knowing the code (we bought the car used, never given the code). If you remove the radio, it should be printed on top. Odd, I know, but that is where his was located.

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 #.
