Volvo radio locked on 'off' despite leaving it run for 1 hour

Manual says to leave the car on for 1 hour which i have done, then it says 'code' but even after one hour plus of running (but under 2 hrs which i've seen posted is the time i need to leave it on for now) it still says 'off'. most infuriating as i hate driving in silence! hope someone can help, many thanks.

What proceedure to apply radio code


  • When the radio displays CODE, you may enter the code using the preset radio station buttons
  • For instance, my number is 1615, so when I get the CODE on the radio's display, I press the radio preset button 1, then the radio preset button 6, then the radio preset button 1, then the radio preset button 5.
  • If your radio says OFF, leave the ignition on in the first position for 2 1/2 to 3 hours in order for it to display CODE. In certain models you can clear the OFF state by pulling the fuse for the radio (#7 in my car). That's a bit simpler than leaving the ignition in the first position for a couple of hours - particularly if you don't have a garage.

Radio power comes on says OFF. How do I get the


Leave the ignition in the #1 position and turn the radio on until the word code appears. This could take several hours. You will have to get the correct code from a Volvo dealer.

I have a 1998 volvo S70 and the radio wont reset, I left the battery disconnected for over 3 hours and it still says off, how do I reset it to put in my code?


You need to leave the key in the ignition in position I (accessory) for two hours, after that it will say code and you can input the code. The radio switches to "OFF" after three failed attempts with the wrong code. If you dont have the code call the dealership with your VIN and they can give it to you.

Go to the dealer and get the code. To reset the radio. You have to leave it for like 12 hours with the ignition on. At the dealer we used to hook the car to a charger and leave it with the ignition on over night.

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

My s70 1198 volvo's radio says off what do i do??


You have to put the battery on a charger and leave the key turned to the accessory position, meaning the car is not running but the radio still displays off. You will have to wait approximately 50 minutes to 2 hours till the word "code" is displayed.Once that has occured, you can put in your code and it will work. Or you can drive around for that length of time until it says code and you will input the correct code and you radio will work. I did this on a long trip.
