Re: I need a radio unlock code for a Volvo/Alpine Radio
You need to send it back to the manufacturer. Only they can unlock it. Obviously, you are the only one of 25 plus people with the same problem that actually sounds legit!! A lot of thes units are stolen with or without the new owners knowledge.
Seriously, just look up service for the brand and send it to them
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Does it happen to say "CODE" ? Was battery recently disconnected or go dead? Ot's your theft deterrent radio and needs code to be unlocked. Check owners manual for small credit card size card, that has you code and enter it into your radio. If you don't have code, you're going to have to either have BMW or yourself pull radio and provide BMW the serial # off of radio.
In the owners maunel you should have a card with the radio code on it.
The radio will only display EEE or OFF when the wrong code has been entered and the radio is locked depending on model - this is due to the battery being disconnected and the incorrect radio code being entered 3 times. You will neet to reset the radio. To do this the radio has to be on for either 2 or 4 hours - see the manual for your model. If you got the code from a card from Volvo, and it didn't work, then the radio has been changed or it has been reset by the dealer and your current code is invalid. You will have to pull the radio and find the serial & model number, and get Volvo to look up the code for that radio or the dealer may be able to lookup the radio code via vin# from Volvo. The dealer can reset the radio and enter a new code. When the radio is "ready" to accept an unlock code the display will say "codE". You will need this code if your battery is ever disconnected.
If you do not have the code. look in owners manual some times it is written in there or there is a card with code on it. if not you need to go to a volvo dealer and they can get the code for you. You may have to pay them for it.
I have a 1995 850 volvo im trying to figure out the radio code my battery went dead an I charged it up then the radio was asking for a code then it switch to off im looking for the code so the radio will work again
