The computer chip which is the sort of "virtual brain" of the stereo may have been fried by an unexpected current ,something similar happened to my vhs video recorder (half the menu items dissapeared among other things), if this is the case then there is nothing you can do but buy a new radio but i guess the radio wasnt worth much if it came with the car, sorry hope this helped

How to replace factory radio in a 99 s70 volvo with a new model store bought radio


I imagine that you installed the code in the radio after installing it. Check that you picked up the correct power wire (accessory [power )

Bought a used volvo and need the radio code to get the radio to work. Do you know how I can obtain the code without paying someone $25 bucks to get that which should be available to me at no charge?


Most Volvo codes are not available for free from anywhere on the Internet as access is required to the original factory database

However many Volvo dealers will give you the code for free if you have the correct paperwork and Serial Numbers.

Try more than one if the first one tries to charge you.

If not, then you will have to use a Radio Decoding Service....but that won`t be free

Sorry {:o(

The majority of Volvo codes will not be available for free from anywhere on the Internet as access is required to the original factory database.

However many Volvo dealers will give the code for free providing you have the car documents , VIN and other info.

Try ringing around to see what they say

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.

Radio display reads off for 2002 s40 volvo/cd player wont work


Hello there. I have a Volvo V70 that I bought recently and it had the same problem. I left the ignition switched on for about two hours and after that time the reading had changed from OFF to Code. I then entered the code and Hey Presto It worked. When I purchased the car it too had no code. I went to a Volvo Dealership, with proof of ownership of the vehicle i.e. Log Book and proof of ID , I used my Passport, and they gave me the radio code.The only dowside was I had to pay them £10 for this code but I feel it was worth it. I suggest you try this too. Good Luck.
