I had the same problem after I replaced my battery. On my 1997 960 all I had to do is pull out the 2 small locking strips, one on each side of the radio. The radio will slide out around 2" without having to be unplugged. There should be a sticker on top with your code. Your manual will tell you what sequence to type the code in. After a few minutes the error reading will go away. It worked great for me. Hope this helps.

A fuse blew in my 1993 volvo 850 sadan radio. I replaced the fuse but now it shows off. I need the code to it.

You need to call a Volvo dealership (parts department) and tell them your battery went dead and you need the radio code. Before you do, pull out the radio by pushing the tabs on both sides. Then write down the serial number, and check for the code on the radio before calling them. You may need your VIN number from your car as well. Some dealerships will do this for free, and others want around $100.

I have a 1995 960 volvo i disconnect my battery andnow my radio is flashing code what I do? I bought it from a guy and he doesnt have a code

Unlock radio code is in the owners manual or sometimes in backside of the radio; if you dant have this code in anyplace, need to visit the dealer with your VIN and ask for this. Keep in mind that ths code its unique for each vehicle (obvius).

Good luck.

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.

Need code 4 car volvo car tape/cd radio

The radio code is available from any Volvo dealership if you don't have the printed code # on the card that came with the car's owner manual. You will need to first obtain the serial number from the sticker on the bottom of the radio. Depending on year and model of your car, this can be obtained by yourself or have the dealer do it. Another option is that most car stereo shops will charge a small fee to remove and re-install your radio while getting the serial number for you. Take this number to the car dealer and they will give you the radio code. Input this and you're all set!

Need stereo code for a ford falcon EB 1992. thanks

All original car radios have their own unique security codes.

Assuming your radio is the original for this vehicle you simply take your vehicle ownership and registration papers to a Ford workshop they can get the code from the Ford computer network on the spot.

If the code does not work then it means that this radio is not the original for your car as it would have been replaced with them radio model.
