SOURCE: where is the fuse for the radio , stereo for volvo s40 xs

Passenger compartment fuses are all behind the drivers side (left) kick panel. You should only need a #2 philips head screw driver to remove 4 or 5 screws. After you remove the screws gently pull out on the lower right corner to disengage a plastic tab. The panel then should now come out disengaging metal tabs on the upper to corners. Fuses are on the left.

SOURCE: Input code for stereo needed for my 2001 volvo s40

Each radio has a different code. You need to call a Volvo dealership and read them the vin number and they can pull the code up for you

SOURCE: radio display reads off for 2002 s40 volvo/cd player wont work

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.

My cd player taked forever to start playing my burned cd


2001, jeep, "new technology on old IRON?"
burned, burned what? did you RIP a CDDA disc to CDR
or burn a bunch of MP3? , my guess you RIPPED it.?

you expect burned CD to work? CDR or CDRW?
if you read the product datasheet for the actual player it will
list all formats that work (few) back then. RBB was zero.
its not weird, it's history,
there are many formats, for CD.
car CD began with CDDA, discs (like sold on the shelf in a store)
those are not file formatted, its track formatted like an an old LP album. (wiki CDDA)
then came file formats. (vast types. MP3 tops.)
there are 3 levels here.
CDR format.
then file types
last music encoding formats(complex)_ask
i can tell you that not all formats are supported on old cars. few to none.
some do SEEM? to work, but are flaky
and after 13years, not at all or more falky, (weak laser, optics dirty)

why not up grade and use USB sticks. ?????
CDs are pretty dead now.

which player, there are many? in dash.?
http://www.wjjeeps.com/radios.htm#AMFMCD

note the lack of CDR play back ( and all others) until 2002.
and even the 2002 is limited.
all car head ends are limited.
for max files.
max folder.s
max files in folder.

just because a CDR pays in a head end that does not support it
means ZERO, as some heads can see some data and attempt to play it blindly, it's just a very dumb headend. (dumb to a fault)

there are endless posts of users trying 100s of ways to fool it
some can,/ most can't (but is not supported so......)


if really curious. post head end ID , like RBB?
we can get the full spec. on that head.

and this,?

Supported formats are: CDDA, CD-R, CD-RW, MP3,WMA, DVD Video, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, and CDDA+MP3
(this support is progressive from 2002 to present day)

does that help>/?
if not post head end pn. or series class.

Check the format of the songs with your computer. CDA format plays on older cars while MP3 is supported on newer models. Sometimes the stereo head unit will say MP3 on it.

I have a 2007 Altima and when I insert a DVD-R disc that has mp3 and wma files I get a read/focus error. If I put a insert a regular cd with audio files they play fine. What would cause this error and is...


There is a major difference between the way a DVD is formatted and used and the way a CD is formatted and used. For that matter there is a major difference in the way these are manufactured. There is nothing wrong with your CD player. Try burning your disk to CD-R media and make sure you close the sessions instead of DVD-r media.

2007 jetta will not play cds burnt from itunes


assuming you have a factory radio... They will only read certain formats... (probably wont read mp3 or WMA). You will need to burn your cd properly.

CRV CD Player


The CD player is not designed to play Mp3. You should be recording on to -R discs and use the same format as a standard CD.

Delco stereo wont play cd-r (mp3)


I believe CDA extensions are actually just shortcuts to the audio file and not the actual audio file. You will want to convert your MP3's to .wav in order to play them in your radio. Roxio and Nero version 4 and higher will automatically do this for you and a version should have come with your computer or CD burner. Just place the MP3's in the record section and select output audio CD.

USB


Hey Robo71-

Is the USB port located next to the aux ipod jack under the center console (factory installed), or is it in the glove box (dealer installed)? If it is dealer installed, it might not be properly connected...

Mini says that the aux input is easier to use, but the USB audio interface (SA 6ND, SA 6NE) supports the common compression formats MP3 (mp3), AAC (aac, m4a, m4b), WAV/PCM (wav) and WMA (wma, asf) as well as playlists in the M3U format.

The operation interface leaves a lot to be desired. I put a bunch of MP3 files on a USB memory stick I carry around, and plugged that into an 08 Mini at the dealership with the convenience package.

Lo and behold, a list of titles came up on the two-line display in the speedo!

(After a certain amount of button-pushing and gnashing of teeth. These people aren't going to win any awards for user interface design, at least the good awards.)

Turning up the OTHER knob (the unmarked one, you know, the volume knob) got music to play.

Mashing buttons on the Multi-Function-Steering-Wheel allowed me to change volume and go forward and back a track within the folder it had chosen to navigate.

Choosing ANOTHER folder to navigate was an exciting exploration, involving another round of seemingly random button pushing and knob twisting. SOMEHOW I got the thing to select another folder, and playing more music.

It looks like if you've got the USB connector, you can load up MP3 files on a cheap memory stick and play 'em. Good use of cheap memory sticks!
Hope this is helpful, good luck, and don't forget to rate my help!!! Your rating is my reward for doing this!

Thanks,
-WildBill
