some radios have either a reset switch on the radio under the removeable face or somewhere on the bottom...or you might try removing power to the radio...if removing the radio is too much trouble then you can remove the battery lead ..wait about 10 min and then reconnect..this should reset the radio

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.

Can anyone help with providing the code for a Ford 6500 in car radio unit, serial number M009475? Thanks


The code for this radio is 2 7 4 8
Please do leave a comment and vote on the solution to show it is correct.

For anyone reading this; be aware that this code applies uniquely to this persons radio. There is no default code for these radios asthe code tied to the radios individual serial number so please do not try this code for your radio. It applies to this radio only.
If you need a code for your radio you can either get it from your dealer for around £25 or you can get a rapid response to these codes for Renault, Fiat and European Fords at this link.

Thanks for using FixYa.

When undoing the battery the radio wont turn on again appearing need to input again the security code

By design whenever a "code radio" loses power such as disconnecting the battery upon power up u will have to enter the correct code in the correctv sequence. The logic behind this is the radio doesnt know if its being stolen or not, but thats the security aspect of the design.

Hi. On most models, you have to leave it disconnected from the power for around 24 hrs, then when you re-connect, you will get a few more attempts. This is to stop people trying codes continuously until they crack it.
