Did you try entering the code the maximum amount of times (usually 3 times) and it locked you out? If that is what you're referring to try this: You will need to unhook the battery cable for 1 1/2 hours. When you hook it back up it the radio should be reset and ready to enter the code again. Do not try again until you have the right code. Call a Volvo dealership and they should be able to walk you through it over the phone for free. I hope this helps you out!

I want to reset my engine light. If I disconnect

most times you will lose them. the main concern is if the radio is of the anti-theft variety. if so make sure you know the code needed to activate the radio and how to enter it.

Replaced Battery Lost Radio ,code needs to be reset

you must call any new dealership of oldsmobile they have the code you have to tell them you are the owner of the car ,and some dealer´s are free of charge,you must send the car or proof of the ownership.
and the next time you change battery for any car try to input a 9v battery on de cigarette ligther,i can explain,get any cable who conects to a cigarrete lighter and cut the wire,then conect the two wires to a 9v battery and conect to the charger of the cigarrte lighter,then disconect the battery and conect the one ,this way you wont lose any code for any radio and any car or any computer codes,i used to work an a car lot for 14 years,hope this will help,good luck

Need code for radio

The radio code should be on a sticker under the ash tray. Slip out the ash tray & look on the bottom of it. You MUST enter the correct code within 10 seconds of turning on the radio or it will lock you out.
