I want code for my radio for my car volvo s40 2000

The only way to access this code is through your dealer, the stereo may have to be removed if the dealer cannot access the code using the vin (vehicle identification number) they will have to access the serial number located on the back of the stereo unit to get the code from Volvo. If you have the manual for the car look through it sometimes people write the stereo code on the inside cover.

Contact Number to get code for Volvo V70 radio

contact your local dealer, assuming the radio is the original unit in the car, they can give you the code to reset it, you will need to give them the full VIN of car. if it is not the original radio, you will need to pull the radio out of the dash and give them the serial number from the rear of the radio. have your title or registration handy it should have all the information you need.

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.

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 .

We tock the baterry of and the stario said off

The radio will have to be removed from the car dashboard
.Then please quote the MAKE + MODEL of your radio plus ALL the LETTERS and NUMBERS on any LABELS , BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING.
Also quote the MAKE of CAR it is fitted into.
Please note: Not all stereo codes can be calculated from the Serial Number

However many VOLVO dealers will give you the code for free if you have the car`s VIN number and radio Serial Number + paperwork

I have a 1998 V70 Volvo and need to reset the radio code

Your radio may have been replaced at one point (assuming that the dealer gave you the code based on your VIN).  Remove the stereo.  There are two skinny brackets on the lower outside edge of the stereo.  You push them in and they will pop out.  You use those brackets to pull out your radio (sometimes it takes a lot of pulling).  On the radio there will be a serial number on a white sticker.  Give that # to the dealer and they can get you the correct code.
