Question about Volvo Car Audio & Video

All displays work on Volvo SC-805 but there is no sound output. It was fine before it went to garage. The battery was disconnected and re-entered code but it now has this problem. Is it fixable?

    Car : P Reg Volvo 850 2.5

    Radio : Premium Sound System - Model SC-805 (can't see the word deluxe anywhere)

    Is this helpful?

  • manndewsland Sep 13, 2010

    According to the Vehicle Regn Document the date of Registration was 20/01/1997.
    Volvo 850 S 4 door saloon.
    Petrol engine - 2435cc.

    Sorry but this is the limit of my knowledge.

    Note: Just to clarify

    Can find Radio Stations on display. Also CD & cassette appear to work, but no sound.

I could make some guesses but hate to assume

what year is your vehicle, what trans, what engine and what audio system, base or deluxe?

it all makes a difference as I look up all the wiring diagrams

    now what year is your vehicle and what engine/trans do you have
    Volvo makes a few different alterations to their systems depending on what you have
    I don't want to give you incorrect information by GUESSING!

    I guess that is how you got here in the first place because the tech that replaced your radio "GUESSED" that he did not need a memory saver

    I too am sorry
    it appears your vehicle is outside of the US?
    I only have data for vehicles inside the US?

Hi! Assuming that the audio output wires are intact, theres no way this can be loosen for it is concealed. I suspect that the radio itself has reached it 's break point thats why theres no audio coming out. A replacement will surely be ideal. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Code for audio system sc-805 premium sound system sc-805 cassette radio and cd remote control volvo v40

Sir We can not by law pass security codes to you. The reason we can not do so is that any thief could steal someones audio equipment ask for the code and profit from your loss. The only legal means of getting the code is to contact the source of purchase for the equipment be it a retailer or auto dealer. They are supposed to verify the VIN & registration of the vehicle with the serial number of the audio equipment. I apologise for not answering your question but this is the best information I can legally pass you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Code radio

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.

Battery died and anti theft code went into effect

Call your Volvo dealer with the VIN number. They can give you the code and advise if you can reset it yourself or if you will have to take it in.
