Question about 1998 Volvo S90

1 Answer

Is there a code just for the cd player; radio works fine

I have switched out the unit with a known working cd player(in my "spare" S90) and it does not work in the "new" car...I'm wondering, if there is a CODE just to activate the cd player part of the unit. I looked at the specs for this vehicle in 1998, and the cd player is listed as an OPTION, although I do have the 816 unit which INCLUDES the cd player. 3 items were listed as OPTIONS : cd player, shift differential, and the ambient outside temperature reader, along with the heated leather seats(which mine DOES NOT have either). Please help.

If yours is the one with the cd player the code that came with the radio works for both. If you don't have the right code the radio and cd player wont work

SOURCE: both front heated seats not working

Page 43 in the document linked to below is a wiring diagram of the heated seats in an 850. If you're lucky some wires have come loose and are hanging under the seats, if you're unlucky you might have to do some shredding of the seats in order to replace broken parts. If so there is a fairly inexpensive repair kit made specifically for this purpose, but I don't have the part number available right now. Arm yourself with a multimeter and get to it!

Good luck!

SOURCE: unlock a volvo sc-816 radio

The SC-816 is made by MITSUBISHI and the code cannot be calculated for free from anywhere on the Internet.

Try your Volvo Main Dealer....or a Decoding service who will plug it into a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)

Howver many Volvo Dealers offer the code for free provided you can quote the car VIN number and the radio serial number

SOURCE: 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

Cd player work but no radio


Assuming the vehicles antenna is intact and in one piece, check the antenna connection behind the radio. If the antenna is connected behind the radio, there could possibly be a problem with the radio's tuner (internally). The only way to properly diagnose this problem is to place a radio that is known to work into the vehicle (simply to test) and check the radio reception. If the radio reception is improved and working, you know the problem lies within the radio itself.

If it still does not work, there is a problem with the antenna on the vehicle (disconnected, damaged, cut, etc.)

Equinox cd player


Should be no connection between the two. Those vehicles are always having problems with the radio units in them. You will either have toi get the radio fixed or find a used one at the wrecking yard but then will have to go to the dealer to get the security code done to make it work or get a after market unit. I would say go to a after market unit.

2007 toyota camry cd player reading error 1


I had the error code no. 1 in my 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid. It has the CD radio unit with JBL system. It will not eject the CD, or play it. I removed the entire radio/CD unit and replaced it with a used excellent unit bought off of ebay for $100, and the replacement works fine. However the replacement is also 7 years old. Therefore I would not be surprised if it failed again. Prior to the error 1 I had intermittent error 3 codes, which had the same effect: no playing of the CD, unable to eject, and unable to insert other CDs. Sometimes the error codes would go away, and the function would be normal. But once it started, I think it was on a downhill path. A new replacement is nearly $2000. Used are about $100 to $200 or more depending on the seller and condition of the unit. Youtube has videos on how to replace the unit which only requires simple tools: it is not difficult but takes about 45 minutes to an hour. If you do it you have to put the car in gear to move the gear shift gate, which requires the car to be on, so you should have the parking brake on for safety. One alternative is to send your unit to a repair company but that might cost more than simply replacing the unit. Good luck!

2005 gmc sierra, replaced radio with known good radio with same part # and model #, all functions work but there is no sound from the radio or the key and door chimes. Is this a lock feature. Took vehicle...


i cannot understand how you radio would work. These radios are coded throught data link to computer. the only way to get the stereo to work is to run a calibration program through the vehicle. then it should accept your new cd player. if the stereo's are the same then may I suggest you to take the radios appart and switch the parts that don't work like CD drive assembly and faceplate.but use your factory installed stereo as the main core, this should fix your isses and work fine since the calibration is for the origional factory stereo.

2005 chevy trailblazer cd player won't eject cd


I have a 06 Z71 and it did the same thing so more than likely your just going to have to buy a new cd player. I would recommend going with an aftermarket cd player because you probably going to spend just as much on another stock unit.

CD Player


The CD player is a separate system in the trunk. It is NOT an after market CD player.
