SOURCE: Need radio code for a 1993 Volvo 940 GL

there are other forums type volvo radio unlock into the search engine. One way has to do with emergency 6666 code. You can get the radio to come on for 5 mins. At least you can then know that you have a working radio and not a dead one. Used car owners frequently think it is a dead radio and pay to get it replaced!! Yes, you must prove ownership at the volvo dealer, but you can get the info for free (if they are good guys).

SOURCE: need code for radio in a 940 volvo

The original response is correct about acquiring the code from the dealer. However, if you just purchased the car, check inside the glove box/manual as it may be located there. Also, you may want to try pulling the radio out of the dash. I have found them written on the radio as well. Defeats the purpose, but some people do it anyway.

SOURCE: PLEASE HELP volvo 1998 v70 radio code

You need to call a Volvo dealer. They'll likely ask you for a number on a sticker on the radio itself. You can find that sticker by pulling the radio out (push the 2 skinny vertical "bars" on each side of the radio to pop them out, then pull on them to pull out the entire radio unit).

I have the radio from a 2010 volvo sc816. Car was parted out. It is locked to off how can iget it on

you will need to obtain the radio code from the manufacturer. If you have the owners manual packet off the car that originally had the radio you may find the code written in the notes there. Otherwise the dealer will have to obtain that info for you. You will need to prove ownership for the dealer to provide the code.

2004 s40 radio code retrieval for reconditioned volvo. Do I definitely need to take the vehicle to a dealership to obtain the radio code

When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your Volvo service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

I athinking of buying a volvo cd player but the man has no code for it how do i go about getting the code

You need to be careful about buying a Volvo unit that has no code.

The reason for this is that many Volvo radios cannot be easily decoded using the serial number alone. This means that whilst it is possible to obtain a code it is going to be more involved and expensive.

If you post up the serial and part numbers of the radio I can give you some more specific advice as to what can be done with this particular unit.

I can turn the radio on on my Volvo S90. Could you tell me how to enter the code on a Volvo S90 1998?.

this is done by using het radios preset buttons. usually when you turn the car on the display will read "CODE". Simply type in your 4 digit code that is on the little white plastic card that came with your Volvo. (If you do not have this the dealership will they usually provide this information over the phone, but in some cases you need to bring them the car. I would have my VIN# and Radio ID# (its on the top of the radio itself) ready also to prevent the dealership from taking me for a labor rate for obtaining the ID themselves.

**If your radio is not in the "CODE" setting and is reading "OFF" then you have 2 options. you can either leave the car ignition in the 1st position (that is the first "click" when turning hte key) for about 2-3hours. or you can try pulling the fuse (#7 in most models) and then retrying the rasio code.

Good luck and don't forget to rate....

You will need to go to the Volvo Dealer to obtain the code. The radio is VIN# specific and the radio has its own special code.
