My battery died, so I needed to jump start my battery. When my car started again, my screen was asking for a four digit password. I think I entered the wrong number in one too many times, so now the...


  • You can try to disconnect the battery again for 5 minutes and then reconnecting it and see if that brings your screen back up. If it does not then your radio has gone into PUK mode. PUK mode is what happens when the wrong code is entered to many times. It's a lock that can only be overridden by contacting the manufacturer of your radio. This is a security feature. Good luck.

My radio is in lock out mode and will not operate because I entered the wrong code in before finding the correct code in the owner's manual


Try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes and then enter the correct code. This should clear the locked mode.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

How to unlock car radio for volvo v70


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.

I tried too many codes to reset the radio after changing the battery and now I cannot put the right code in. It just says Code Error. How do I reset the radio? Do I have to disconnect the battery to reset...


The normal method to reset a radio after wrong codes have been entered is to LEAVE SWITCHED ON...UNDISTURBED for as long as it takes to automatically reset itsel

This could take several hours.

Try this..Turn your radio off, take the fuse out (for the radio) for one minute. Replace it and turn the switch on. Turn the radio on and enter the code. If this dosnt work you may have the wrong code. If you enter the wrong code 3 times it may lock and you will have to wait an hour before entering again.
