Question about 2000 Volvo V70
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.
Take the battery posts off. by disconnecting the battery for a good 15 min you will wipe the residual memory on the computer then plug back in and try again. hope this helps

The four-digit code is unique to your radio; your neighbor's code will not work on your radio. So what to do if you've misplaced, or never received, the white card, like most people?
Dealers have your radio code in a database, and can look it up. Many will give you the code over the phone if you've lost your card. You can call any Volvo dealer: they all have the same computer system to look up your Volvo radio code.
Sometimes the code is written on the radio itself. But you have to pull the radio out (not hard) to see it.
Other dealers will have you drive to their lot and speak to them in person. Because the dealer will need to read off the radio's serial number to cross-reference it with the unique code, bring your radio, and your Volvo. Some reportedly charge US$10-$100 for this. Hmmmmm. I suppose dealers can choose to charge for this, and we can choose to not go back, right?
Finally visit this site & keep your VIN no. ready
