No AM radio on my 2008 XC70

Hi have purchased a 2008 Volvo XC70 and the radio will only pick up FM radio. Took it to the local Volvo dealer and was told it would cost $850.00 to replace a "Module" in the system to repair it. Been driving card for 42 years and never had a radio break on me. Is it poor product or just bad luck?

If it was me i would go to a car radio shop and purchase a new and cheaper radio including installation. It would be a lot cheaper than $850.

SOURCE: poor cound quality

does the XM use a radio station for recieving the sound or is it wired in to the vehicle. if you have to set a radio station so you can use the XM then what you can do it set the station to some other channel. it maybe to close to a real radio station or the frequency it to weak and you'll need a stronger signal

SOURCE: Radio not working on my

The radio probably needs a code to be entered. It sounds like someone tried to enter the wrong code too many times. See if you can get the right code, then leave the radio turned on for an hour or two. The secure message should disappear then to be replaced by code. You should then be able to enter the code.

Volvo xc70 in limp mode 7 fault codes recorded d5


Possible problem with the alternator not putting out enough voltage. I had the same problem with my 2002 XC70, putting in a new alternator fixed it. I used a local mechanic who I found on the car talk web-site. Low Cost Volvo parts can be purchased at FCP Groton.

Volvo XC70 I have had several computer errors


Check two items, chassey grounds by battery, transmission and starter. Also, check to make sure the alternator is providing enough voltage, should be around 14 amps. Had a similar problem with my 2002 XC70, replacing the alternator fixed it! I used the Car Talk website to find a good local mechanic vs. the stealer.

Need code for volvo v40 radio VOLVO HU-605


The HU-605 radio is made by MITSUBISHI and unfortunately the code is not normally available for free  (using the Serial Number ) from anywhere on the Internet as access is required to the original factory database which is only available at the Main Volvo Dealer ( and just a few of the larger Decode Services)

However , many VOLVO Dealers will provide  this code for free provided you can quote the car`s VIN number+ Radio Serial Number and have all the car documents available.

If not, then the alternative option is a Decode Service or your local Car Radio / Audio Store who will plug in a laptop to electronically read/recode the memmory chip (EEPROM)

How to program the volvo V 70 XC 2008 garage door opener


Simply hold down the button you want to use (there are 3 for up to 3 different garage doors) until the light flashes and keep holding it down. Now place the garage door opener up near the sun visor and hold it's button down until the light on the on button you are programming flashes. It is now programed. The other 2 are done the same way. Good luck. It took me a while to find the info, it's not in any Volvo manuals I could find.

Volvo s80 dashboard fault


I recently purchased a 2002 S60 D5 which had this problem. I am not a Volvo expert so don't know if it could be the same fault, but it sounds identical. No lights, gauges etc, but intermittently and very briefly comes on. Having heard some silly prices for replacement dash and ECU, I had a look. I found 4 poor soldered joints on the dash circuit board (top left processor & heat sink). I cleaned them and re-soldered them, although I had continuity just after cleaning the corrosion. The dashboard has worked perfectly since (3 weeks) . If you try this make sure you disconnect the battery first or you may have the SRS airbag warning light on! (I had to have it re-set at the dealers!!)

The whole process took less than an hour. If you are not electronically savvi get one of your mates who is to have a look..

Service light comes on


This is just a reminder that you need to have the vehicle serviced. It comes on every 5,000 miles or so. Here are instructions on how to reset the light - http://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/2008/12/reset-service-light-volvo-850-s70-v70-c70-xc70/
