Your radio does not go with your car. you have to take the radio out take it in to the dealer so they can see it and take the s/n off it then 2-3 days later they will call you with the code.

Radiocode frozen volvo v 40


Remove radio from central console (press two thin vertical buttons on both sides of it). Read and note a radio serial no. on a sticker on radio metal cover. Contact local dealer and give them the number. They will resolve the code for you. Some dealers take some fee for that kind of service. You must ask before.

How to Reset the Radio
  • When the radio displays CODE, you may enter the code using the preset radio station buttons
  • For instance, my number is 1615, so when I get the CODE on the radio's display, I press the radio preset button 1, then the radio preset button 6, then the radio preset button 1, then the radio preset button 5.
  • If your radio says OFF, leave the ignition on in the first position for 2 1/2 to 3 hours in order for it to display CODE. In certain models you can clear the OFF state by pulling the fuse for the radio (#7 in my car). That's a bit simpler than leaving the ignition in the first position for a couple of hours - particularly if you don't have a garage.

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.

Other dealers will have you drive to their lot and speak to them in person. Because the dealer will need to read off the radio's serial number to cross-reference it with the unique code, bring your radio, and your Volvo. Some reportedly charge US$10-$100 for this. Hmmmmm. I suppose dealers can choose to charge for this, and we can choose to not go back, right?

Finally visit this site & keep your VIN no. ready

Leave the key in the first position for a couple of hours until the radio displays "code" in place of "off" then you will be able to enter the radio code.

1999 volvo radio code


To reset the radio you have to leave the key in position one (the radio will come on, but the dash lights are not on) with the radio on for at least two hours. It can take up to four hours to reset.
Make sure the climate control and blower are in the off position to keep the battery from running down. Eventually the radio will say "code". There is a four digit code that is unique to each radio, if you don't have it you must contact the local Volvo dealer and have your VIN code. The VIN code is locate on the far top/right side of the dash, you must be outside the car to see it. It will begin with something like YV1LS...................

When you get this code from the dealer you input the code using the radio preset (1-6 buttons). If the radio says code again that means it is the incorrect radio code. Most likely the radio has been replaced. Then it would be alot easier to take it to the dealer since the radio has to be removed and the serial number taken off the radio chassis unit. Usually most dealers will do it for free if they think you'll come back for services, so just tell them you just bought it and be nice, hopefully it will work.


hope this helps

Radio


Your radio has a unique 4 digit code that you need to input into the radio after power has been disconnected. You get 3 tries then the radio shuts "OFF". You have to get the code from the dealer. You can reset the radio by leaving the ignition key in the first position, and the radio on for an hour or so. When the radio says "on", then you can enter the code.
