when it says system off that means that the radio is locked and you cannot enter in even the right code. its to prevent the code from being hacked. it used to be we would have to leave the key on and turn on the radio [engine not running] and leave it for i think it was 6 hours. of course a battery charger has to be hooked up or battery goes dead and you have to start over.
frequently the radio gets changed out while under warranty and the rebuilt replacement radio has a new code so the vin# does you no good.we used to write the code on a sticker and put it in one of the door jamns. or felt pen it on the door jamn. the previus owner should have the code or may have written it in the owners manuel.have the car lot ask the previos owner for the code if its not found.
last resort remove the radio and take it to the dealer so they can take the numbers off it and retrieve the code that way
Hello there. I have a Volvo V70 that I bought recently and it had the same problem. I left the ignition switched on for about two hours and after that time the reading had changed from OFF to Code. I then entered the code and Hey Presto It worked. When I purchased the car it too had no code. I went to a Volvo Dealership, with proof of ownership of the vehicle i.e. Log Book and proof of ID , I used my Passport, and they gave me the radio code.The only dowside was I had to pay them £10 for this code but I feel it was worth it. I suggest you try this too. Good Luck.
Yes. Call a dealer. If they tell you that you have to come in person or want to charge you then call another. Even search for dealers over the internet. Most will give it to you over the phone, a smaller portion will want to either charge or make you come in person. Again, if that happens just call another dealer. If the radio is original, you can just give them the VIN. If you suspect it isn't or if the code they give you doesn't work then you need to pull the radio and gave them the serial number on it.
I have a 1995 850 volvo im trying to figure out the radio code my battery went dead an I charged it up then the radio was asking for a code then it switch to off im looking for the code so the radio will work again
