I found three solutions somewhere, hope one works for you!
Good luck! Just tell me which worked.
I am wish to import a S40 too, can you give me the exporter's name and site?
. It went like this, turn radio on, when “code” is displayed push and hold “6” while pushing “power & volume” knobs at the same time. Let radio turn off while continuing to hold “6”. Turn radio back on by pushing both “power & volume” knobs at the same time. It worked on 98 V90.
#2 (JAPAN IMPORT)
-I emailed 2 Volvo Dealers and both replied 6666 is the code for all used Volvo imports from Japan, so I switched the ignition key to pos I for over 2.5 hours and "CODE" appeared, then pushed button 6 four times and the Radio swiched On. Problem solved.
-we altered the client access code input protocol by “rebooting” the stereo (turning it off and on using the combined volume/power input) and, at the same time, holding down the “stereo preset 6” button. The stereo then transitioned into the authenticated mode, allowing clients to listen to NPR without proving identity.

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.
