Question about 1996 Volvo 850

1 Answer

I changed a dead battery in my 2000 V-40 and of course the radio will only read OFF now when the power button is pushed. I have placed the key in the ignition in position 1 for the recommended 2 hours; however it still reads OFF and never allows you to put in the code, which I have from the dealer. Is my radio ever going to work again? How can I get it to accept the code?

Try leaving the ignition key on while disconnecting the battery and than go through the process you normally should go through. i have seen this work.

The battery was changed on my car. after new one installed the alarm went off. the guy push the black button and turned the key. now the alarm wont work. how do i get it workind again? .


the guy pushed a button under my dash turned the key and car started

you need to know where that push button is under the dash

if you cant find it your self ... ring the place back for instructions

not nice but
you may have to get them to call out and show you or
tow the car back to where you got the battery fitted

You need to gete the radio security code and enter it in. Just call or drop by the dealer and theye can give you the code or enter it. Should be free but your dealer may vary. When you changed the battery and lost power the radio goes into a secure mode just in case it was stolen. The code should be about 4 digets long so its not a big thing to enter. its keyed to your vin number so the d ealer may want to see that as well as your registtration and maybe a drivers licence depending on how paranoid they are.

When I go to turn on the radio it just reads "safe" and won't work or play anything. AT first i thought it was a battery issue but the battery has been charged and works great yet the radio...


IMPORTANT NOTE:
You must have the security anti-theft code for your Audi radio from the car manufacturer, or from an Audi dealer!


You can find the radio code at: http://www.radio-code.co.uk/

The sequence of Audi radio programming is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys for confirm this safe code. On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For few seconds a radio frequence will be displayed.

The radio is now ready for use!

The radio/disc player won't work


In the owners manual booklet there should be a radio code that you have to punch in in order for the radio to work. This is in case your radio gets stolen no one else can use it. When you change the battery or the battery goes dead you have to put this code in for the radio to work again. The radio code may be on a card inside the leather case the owners manual comes in.. This is where mine was.
