Radio code for Volvo V70

I recently had to recharge my battery and need to put in my code for the radio to come on.  The only option I get is OFF and I can't get the option for the word CODE.  Is there another way for me to get the word CODE so I can put in my 4 digit number?

    I have the code for my Volvo. I need the procedure for making the CODE reappear; right now it is showing OFF. I put the key in the 1 position, but OFF never disappeared (I waited about 2 hours). Is there a trick to make the word CODE reappear without waiting the 2 hours?

    My husband put the radio from his s90 into my v70.  The battery went dead and now the radio is showing off. How do i fix it?  I took the fuse out for about 1 minute and then put it back in and off is still there.  How can I fix this?
    Thank you

My 2000 Volvo v70 xc's radio is not working. I

Your radio has been replaced, not uncommon for that year and the SC series of radios. The dealer will need to remove the radio (real easy to do) and has to get 2 numbers from the tag on top and query them through the Volvo DMS system. Note that if you enter the wrong code 3 times the radio will say OFF and you will have to leave the key in position 1 for up to 4 hours till the radio anti-theft resets and you can try again.

My 2000 v70 xc had the battery disconnected and the factory stereo needs a four digit code to work again. i got the car used and need to know how to obtain that code from volvo. there is no dealer nearby

There is only 2 options.
1. Your radio code is in your paperwork for your car (Its on a hard plastic card) Find it.
2. Take your registration to Vin and Ser Number for your radio to your local dealer.
These codes are a guarded secret and no one code fits all.
Hope this tip helps guide you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

Need a radio antitheft code for a 1999 volvo v70xc

The code should be written in your user manual, if not, you will have to contact a Volvo Dealer. This option is placed in vehicle radios to deter theft and render the radio useless if stolen. Thanks for using FixYa.

Batery discorneted lost radio code on my volvo v70 no luck from volvo as car 15 years old

The only way to get the radio code is at a dealer, and often you have to have the serial number of the radio, the VIN number of the car, and go to the service department. This is an anti theft preventative, and keeps theives from reselling stolen radios. If you have been to a Volvo dealer and done all I suggested above, then your only option is an aftermarket radio .

Problems with radio code

Your radio is now in "off" mode. To get it back to "code" mode you need to have power to the radio for 2 hours. This can be accomplished by either driving the car for 2 hours, or putting the key into position 1 on the ignition, but make sure to turn off the fan as it will drain the battery in 2 hours. Once you have "code" back you can enter the 4 digit radio code. Caution, many of these radios have been replaced so the code that the dealer gives you may be wrong. If entered and it comes back "EEEEEE" that means it is the wrong code. The radio must be pulled and get the factory serial number from the top of the unit.

Hope this helps!
