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.

Not possible to enter code on radio

Hook up a Battery Charger, leave the ignition on, not running for overnight with the Radio display reading OFF. In the Morning it should read Enter Code and you will be able to enter the code.

I have a 2006 volvo s40. Rrecently the 6 disk changer cd player displays disk unreadable.... for all six disks slots. Any ideas what to do??

Hi, I am a service advisor at a Volvo dealership. First thing to do is buy a cleaning disc kit, this will be a kit that comes with supplies and a disc that you will insert into the cd player. The purpose of this is to clean the disc reading lens inside of the player. I have seen disk unreadable many times. The cleaning kit I suggested is the only thing that can be attempted to fix your current cd player and the kits are inexpensive so you should try that. If that does not correct the issue then the internal fault in the player is too much to be fixed by simple cleaning. Unfortunately if that does not work the only other option is replacement of the factory player, there are no internal repairs that can be made to the Volvo players so you would have to order and have installed a new Volvo unit. If you have to replace the unit Volvo decks are expensive. You can go to a good stereo shop and have an aftermarket deck installed for a fraction of the price. If it comes down to replacing the player and you choose and aftermarket shop to install different deck, insist that they do not turn on the ignition to the car until all wires are connected. When players are being put in shops often turn the ignition on to test power supply as they work on the install. As strange as it may sound the computers that run your entertainment and information are connected to the same network as the airbag computer. If the ignition is turned on while parts of the radio are still unplugged the car will read an error on that network and you will end up with a SRS service urgent message on your dash, which only a dealership can clear out. This is all the information about the player systems. If cleaning does not work and you have to replace unit and choose to us aftermarket parts and shop just use what I've told you. If you end up with a SRS message afterwards it is the stereo shops fault and they should pay to have light reset. Hope this helps and good luck

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
