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

I called the local dealer with my VIN (you can see it looking through the windshield) and they gave me the code.

Astra coded radio cant enter code??

I would suggest that your radio got a voltage surge when your battery was recently removed and re-connected. I would either:

1) Remove radio (if you have the special tool), unplug and re-connect harness, or

2) Pull the fuse in the fuse box for the radio (may be two), or

3) Disconnect the negative post to the battery, wait 30 seconds and re-apply (very quickly).

If the display does not reappear, I'm afraid the radio is damaged. Let me know.

Battery went flat so need radio code for renault megane

With the car, comes a plastic "infocard" with the radio and alarm codes. If you lost the card or didn't receive it with the purchase, you can ask for the code to the radio manufacturer, they'll ask you the serial number of the radio and the car and they'll send you the code.

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

Input radio code in a volvo redio

A volvo dealer can look up your radio code if you provide the VIN. The problem is that then you have to follow the instructions in your user's manual to actually input the code, and the manual seems to be a poor translation from Swedish to English.

So you have to get a Volvo dealer in a headlock and force the correct instructions out of them. If you do this before I do, please let me know!
