Hi! THe radio may have reached its break point. The internal capacitors could be blown causing it to fail. I used to have one too and the only cure is a new radio replacement. Hope this helps and have a good one!

I have a 2000 s70 volvo and my radio code is in the off position how do i get it off position


Leave the key in the first position for a couple of hours until the radio displays "code" in place of "off" then you will be able to enter the radio code.

What proceedure to apply radio code


  • When the radio displays CODE, you may enter the code using the preset radio station buttons
  • For instance, my number is 1615, so when I get the CODE on the radio's display, I press the radio preset button 1, then the radio preset button 6, then the radio preset button 1, then the radio preset button 5.
  • If your radio says OFF, leave the ignition on in the first position for 2 1/2 to 3 hours in order for it to display CODE. In certain models you can clear the OFF state by pulling the fuse for the radio (#7 in my car). That's a bit simpler than leaving the ignition in the first position for a couple of hours - particularly if you don't have a garage.

I have a 1998 volvo S70 and the radio wont reset, I left the battery disconnected for over 3 hours and it still says off, how do I reset it to put in my code?


You need to leave the key in the ignition in position I (accessory) for two hours, after that it will say code and you can input the code. The radio switches to "OFF" after three failed attempts with the wrong code. If you dont have the code call the dealership with your VIN and they can give it to you.

How to reset the raido


Hello,

There is a trick to the procedure. You have to turn the key to position 1 or the first stop on the ignition. Turn on the radio and wait between 2.0 to 3.0 hours for the radio to reset and ask for the code. From the owners manual. My 97 takes between 2:25 and 2.5 hours to reset. Every radio is different.

To enter the code:

After installation or when the set has been disconnected from power, the set displays "codE" when it is switched on.
Enter the 4-digit code using the preset buttons. If the correct code is entered, "on" is displayed and the set is ready to use.
If you enter an incorrect code you must enter the correct code again from the beginning.

Incorrect code

If an incorrect code has been entered "rPt" is displayed. Enter the correct code.
After three unsuccessful coding attempts the set will lock and remain locked for two hours.
"OFF" is displayed.

During this waiting period:

the battery must be connected
the ignition key must be turned to position I
the unit must be turned on
Make sure the headlights are turned off to help prevent battery drain (please refer to page 2:6 for information on turning the headlights off). Enter the code again once this time has elapsed.

Goodluck!
Ryan

My s70 1198 volvo's radio says off what do i do??


You have to put the battery on a charger and leave the key turned to the accessory position, meaning the car is not running but the radio still displays off. You will have to wait approximately 50 minutes to 2 hours till the word "code" is displayed.Once that has occured, you can put in your code and it will work. Or you can drive around for that length of time until it says code and you will input the correct code and you radio will work. I did this on a long trip.

1998 volvo v70 radio displays off


Turn the key to position ONE (turn one position from where the key is inserted). The radio should be left on. Make sure the a/c blower is in the off position. There should be no dash lights on. It should reset somewhere between two to eight hours. After at least two hours it should read CODE again.

If you cut the power, or the battery goes dead it won't reset.

I hope this helps.
