I would try removing either the two fuses for the radio or disconnecting the ground on the battery for a while. When you start the car it should rest from "OFF" to "CDE" and you will be able to enter code again

Hi i have a volvo s40 ive put the code in wrong 3 times and now it displays off just want to know what to do to get it working again


Turn the key in the ignition so that the radio will come on, leave the radio switched on for 2.5 to 3hrs.
After this time it should be requesting the security code again
Input your code; if you don't have it -call the local Volvo dealer (have your chassis / VIN identification number and the registration plate number to hand , they may need it)
Tell the dealer your stereo is requesting a code you don't have ...
Do not pay any money..they all have it on a data base ..so if they ask for money hang up and call another !
anyway, get your code input it and voila ..music again, ah sweet music, I've just beenwithout music in my Volvo for a month and just found all the above out, sawthis question and just had to answer.
cheers

Radio code for volvo s40


If the display says "Off" the radio is locked from incorrect code input.

You need to leave the key in the accessory position with the radio on (display reads 'Off') for about two hours.
After that it should ask for he code again. You have three tries before it locks again.
Some radios are different, but typically you use the knob to adjust the numbers, push the knob in to move to the next number

I jumped a car and radio/navigator displays shut off and Anti theft light is now blinking. I have a code but for some reason the radio is not accepting or I'm doing it wrong. The display doesnt show...


with the key on engine off the radio should display the word code if this is not been displayed at all check your fuses if they are good try removing your radio and unplugged connectors. once plugged back in if you don't see the word code displayed then your radio is shorted out

New battery and radio displays "code"


Well, it might seem obvious but you need to input the code which on my Volvo 850 is a four digit number. I'm assuming this is a used car, so you need to get the code from the previous owner, or if this is not possible, contact the manufacturer directly to see if they can help you. Good luck.
