Question about 2000 Volvo S80

Open Question

Volvo CD/Tape problem?


My CD and tapes have stopped working yet the radio still works. When I turn the knob to select these 2 functions, the CD or Tape message doesnt show any more.
When I try to introduce a CD or tape, there is no sensor to pick them up.
This is a volvo sealed unit specific design to fit in the dash of my S60 2.4 TS . Volvo garages tell me that the only option for them is to send the unit back to volvo and get a new one, they wont repair nor will they even investigate......this is expensive.

This equipment was working perfectly when the car went in for a respray and a new windscreen. When I picked the car up they were not functioning. The onus is on me (apparently) to prove that the mafunction happened whilst the car was in for the paint job yet I am hitting a brick wall. Cant get anyone to look at it nor give me any possible causes of the problem.

Is it possible that the battery could have run down whilst in the paintshop and that an interruption to the electrical system could have done something? What about if the battery was jumped could a spike alter the programming on the radio unit? I know that the electrical system was interrupted because a longstanding error message on the car's computer is no longer showing yet it was showing when I took the car in.

Can you give me any leads please.

Most grateful I have the same problem with my 2000 S80. After a body work my cd player and actually the IPOD kit both disappeared from the stereo

please help

SOURCE: radio display reads off for 2002 s40 volvo/cd player wont work

Hello there. I have a Volvo V70 that I bought recently and it had the same problem. I left the ignition switched on for about two hours and after that time the reading had changed from OFF to Code. I then entered the code and Hey Presto It worked. When I purchased the car it too had no code. I went to a Volvo Dealership, with proof of ownership of the vehicle i.e. Log Book and proof of ID , I used my Passport, and they gave me the radio code.The only dowside was I had to pay them £10 for this code but I feel it was worth it. I suggest you try this too. Good Luck.

its very possible a knob may have been bumped as a tech was getting in/out of vehicle, but fact of the matter is, this is a he said/she said kind of case. and these stock radios are junk to begin with.i highly doubt anyone would go to the effort of removing/replacing a stock radio. they just simply aren't worth anyone's time or effort. techs often -mistakenly or not- get blamed for incidental damage and when accused, it gets their dander up. you're not going to get anywhere with this one. my advice? buck up and buy a good radio if you plan on keeping the vehicle. www.crutchfields.com is a good place to shop. they often provide free shipping and always include installation hardware and needed electrical adapters and instructions. great place and great service from my experience.

All radio, cd tape function buttons on 98 explorer stopped working


just removing ur radio would cause this (ive had mine out a dozen times) make sure all plugs and the antenna is plugged in snug, also you can try another compatible radio just to make sure from another ford (the two square connector style is refered to as the "world" plug)

I could not operate my tape and cd tape due to code error


Honda outlines it here:
https://radio-navicode.honda.com/

You can retrieve your 5-digit code if you have your VIN (look for the plate at bottom of windshield on drivers side, looking from the outside), your phone number (the one Honda has on file, gathered when you bought it from the dealer) and the radio serial number.

They give you instructions on getting the radio serial number from the radio display which did work. Turn on ignition, have radio off and while simultaneously holding the 1 and 6 radio buttons push the "on" knob. Two code will flash... a U code and a L code, each followed by 4 numbers. Those 8 numbers (without the U and L form the radio serial number
