Question about 1999 Volvo S70
The radio stopped playing after battery change, how do u enter the code?
The four-digit code is unique to your radio; your neighbor's code
will not work on your radio. So what to do if you've misplaced, or never
received, the white card, like most people?
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.
This happened to me and my dealer wanted to charge me $25.00 for the code. I called an out of town dealer and they gave me the code for free. Then just follow the instructions in the owners manual for entering the code.
The following web site has a lot of good information on Volvo's.
Hope this helps, Mark

ENTERING SECURITY CODE
Most vehicles are equipped with Heidelberg V or VI radios that are equipped with a theft protection program. When the battery has been is disconnected or if the radio has been removed, the radio will lock-up electronically and cannot be operated until the security code is entered. On the Heidelberg V, if the proper code is not entered in six attempts, the radio will lock-up permanently and cannot be repaired. On the Heidelberg VI, two incorrect attempts will lock the radio for about 1 hour.
The Heidelberg V may have a code assigned at the factory or a personal code created by the owner. The Hiedelberg VI has a code assigned at the factory and entered by the dealer during pre-delivery inspection. New radios come with the code printed on a sticker but not entered into memory. All codes are 4 digits. To code the radio:
