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).

1998 s70 volvo how to get radio working after unhooking battery post

You will need a Battery Charger set on low. Park your S70 hooked up to a charger. Turn the ignition switch to Accessory with out starting the engine and so the ignition is not on. It is the first single hash mark above the key, make sure it is lined up and you have power to the Radio, it will say Off. Leave it like this undisturbed for at least 2 hours and the Radio will reset itself.

I disconneted my baterry after installing a mass flow meter now my radio want come on and it said code at first but now after just punching some random # it now it saids off how can i get my radio back on.

It's a radio security feature. When you disconnected the battery, it was just like you removed the radio. Your radio won't work in any other Volvo, to prevent it from being stolen and used in another car. You need to take it to the Volvo dealer to unlock the radio.

My 2003 Volvo S60 2.5T gives me an error code of '025' when the car is off but in accessory mode. What does this mean? I already get a message saying 'SRS Airbag Service Urgent' because my side curtain...

I unhooked the battery to instal a new radio, as per directions. Everything went fine, but I decided to reroute some wires and did not unhook the battery. Unwise as it is now giving me the 025 code for the air bag. A local mechanic was not able to turn it off, he said it needs a volvo dealer to turn off the light. Since I know it is the only issue the car has I think I will try unhooking the battery for 20 minutes to see if it will reset. I was told it would not work because the 025 is a safety issue, we will see...

Can not reset/start my radio after my battery was disconected.

Did you try entering the code the maximum amount of times (usually 3 times) and it locked you out? If that is what you're referring to try this: You will need to unhook the battery cable for 1 1/2 hours. When you hook it back up it the radio should be reset and ready to enter the code again. Do not try again until you have the right code. Call a Volvo dealership and they should be able to walk you through it over the phone for free. I hope this helps you out!
