1995 volvo 850, I need to enter the code for the factory radio to work, the dealership wasn't very helpful. Is there a master code I can enter or where do I find the right code? I had to have some repairs done to my 1995 Volvo 850 Glt (I got this second hand and it didn't have the manuals) - now I cannot unlock my radio and use it. Does anyone know how I can get it to work?
Well, I don't know, the dealer has all of that info, but if your lucky you can pull the old radio and maybe a previous owner or mechanic was thoughtful enough to write the code on top. Locate the two springloaded tabs on the left and right sides of the face, push them in gently with a knife or flat screwdriver and use them to pull the radio out. Good luck.

if you know the dealership it was purchased from, give them the vin # of the vehicle and they should get it for you. otherwise you have to pull the radio out enough to get the #'s off of it and give both numbers to a dealership or a volvo mechanic
have to take it to a dealership, they can usually pull up the radio code by looking up your vin number, but if its ever been replaced then you have to remove the radio and take it to them and they will look it up by the part number
There is a 4 digit security code that needs to be entered into the radio. Look in your owners manual, it may be written in the book or there may be a card in the booklet that has the code. If you find it, enter it once, if it doesn't work, stop, because entering the wrong code will lock up the radio. You will need to go to the dealer to get the code if you cannot find it. http://repairpal.com/volvo-850-1994/common_problems
With a good battery in the car turn the ignition key to Position I. Do not put the key in position II. Make sure "OFF" is displayed. Let the car sit with the key in position I for about two hours. "CODE" will appear in the display. Enter your code.
