Question about 2001 Volvo S40
The battery was disconnected when the car was repaired, this is standard practice so the battery won't run dead, what has happened is the disconnected battery has triggered the anti-theft mode of the radio and it requires a special code unique to your cars chassis and radio serial number to reset the radio and clear it out of anti-theft mode. this code is supplied to the original owners with the owners manual, it is a card with the unique code and the instructions on how to enter the code using the radio controls, if u don't have this code you will need to see the Volvo dealer and he or she can go into the stored Data for your car and retrieve the code from the Volvo main computer, u will need to go to the dealer as they require proof it is your car, I would make the body shop do this, it may not be free, it depends on the dealer, some do it as a courtesy others charge up to $50 for the service.
