Volvo radio unlock problem

I had to take the battery out my car, then i put in the unlock code for the radio. Two weeks later the battery had to come out again but when i turn on the radio it does not ask for the code it says off instead. Do u know what the problem is and how i get the code in.

Turn the ignition on 1st position. Engine off. Ensure headlights are off to avoid battery drain. Turn power to radio on, 'Off' appears. Leave like this for approx 2 hours. It should then ask you for the code again.

Radio code volvo s70


The only way to unlock the radio without you having a code is the Volvo service center. They have instrumentation that they attach through the computer brain and unlocks the radio.

I have a 1992 volvo 940 and the radio lock up when i change the battery, and i bought it used, how can i get the unlock code


Ring a major volvo dealer. If you give them your engine or chassis number they should be able to provide you with the unlock code providing the radio is the original one fitted when new. Enter code using preset station numeric buttons. Write the code on the back of your sun visor for next time
