The code for my 98 is 2251 I have seen it work on one other radio besides mine before, also if you turn the radio off then hold the 1 key and turn in back on the radio will play for a little while with out a key. that might be the 6 key I can't remember anymore

Pull out the radio and write down the serial number call volvo and ask for a code, or you can look through your owners manuel for a radio card with the number on it, or flip through and see if someone scribbled it in the manuel somewhere please rate -jeff

Cant find code for radio

My husband had the same issue with not knowing the code (we bought the car used, never given the code). If you remove the radio, it should be printed on top. Odd, I know, but that is where his was located.
