Turn the key to position ONE (turn one position from where the key is inserted). The radio should be left on. Make sure the a/c blower is in the off position. There should be no dash lights on. It should reset somewhere between two to eight hours. After at least two hours it should read CODE again.

If you cut the power, or the battery goes dead it won't reset.

I hope this helps.

My 2000 Volvo v70 xc's radio is not working. I


Your radio has been replaced, not uncommon for that year and the SC series of radios. The dealer will need to remove the radio (real easy to do) and has to get 2 numbers from the tag on top and query them through the Volvo DMS system. Note that if you enter the wrong code 3 times the radio will say OFF and you will have to leave the key in position 1 for up to 4 hours till the radio anti-theft resets and you can try again.

Code radio


In the owners maunel you should have a card with the radio code on it.

The radio will only display EEE or OFF when the wrong code has been entered and the radio is locked depending on model - this is due to the battery being disconnected and the incorrect radio code being entered 3 times. You will neet to reset the radio. To do this the radio has to be on for either 2 or 4 hours - see the manual for your model. If you got the code from a card from Volvo, and it didn't work, then the radio has been changed or it has been reset by the dealer and your current code is invalid. You will have to pull the radio and find the serial & model number, and get Volvo to look up the code for that radio or the dealer may be able to lookup the radio code via vin# from Volvo. The dealer can reset the radio and enter a new code. When the radio is "ready" to accept an unlock code the display will say "codE". You will need this code if your battery is ever disconnected.

You have to put the key in position 1 where the radio is on, but not your instrument panel. leave in this position for 2 hrs. yes, 2hrs! the radio then will come back to saying "code" once it does, call a volvo dealer, they can run your vin # and get your code. they may ask for proof of ownership. then push in your 4 digit code. this will work as long as the radio hasnt been changed out. if it has, they have to pull the serial number off the radio itself (it slides right out)and get the code for that radio.

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.

Problems with radio code


Your radio is now in "off" mode. To get it back to "code" mode you need to have power to the radio for 2 hours. This can be accomplished by either driving the car for 2 hours, or putting the key into position 1 on the ignition, but make sure to turn off the fan as it will drain the battery in 2 hours. Once you have "code" back you can enter the 4 digit radio code. Caution, many of these radios have been replaced so the code that the dealer gives you may be wrong. If entered and it comes back "EEEEEE" that means it is the wrong code. The radio must be pulled and get the factory serial number from the top of the unit.

Hope this helps!

Same problem with Volvo radio


Your info is correct about what to do when it reads "OFF". As far as I know, you need to go to a dealer to get the code. They access it through their computer system with the VIN and the radio serial #.
