Look in the manual for the code - usually someone has written it in there. If not, call the nearest Volvo dealership and give them the VIN - they can tell you what your code is. Then, with the engine off, turn the key to the "I" position (Roman numeral one) and leave it for at least 4 hours. The radio should then read "Code. and you can enter the 4 digit number! Good Luck!

Re: radio code ( 98 Volvo S70)
It will do this automatically as a theft deterrent feature it takes some models up to a few days to reset itself and yes you only have 3 try before it activates look in your owners Manuel to see if it has been written down someplace by previous owner or factory dealership ...

put a battery charger on the battery,turn key to on postion[engine not running] turn radio to on and let it sit there like that for about 5 hours or untill radio say code then enter right code. if battery goes dead during this you have to dtart over
You need to leave the key in the ignition in position I (accessory) for two hours, after that it will say code and you can input the code. The radio switches to "OFF" after three failed attempts with the wrong code. If you dont have the code call the dealership with your VIN and they can give it to you.
If you do not have the code. look in owners manual some times it is written in there or there is a card with code on it. if not you need to go to a volvo dealer and they can get the code for you. You may have to pay them for it.
My husband had the same issue with not knowing the code (we bought the car used, never given the code). If you remove the radio, it should be printed on top. Odd, I know, but that is where his was located.
you have to turn the key to position 1 where the radio comes on but not your instrument panel. then leave it on this position for 2 hrs. the word "code" will come on instead of "off".Then you have to put in your 4 digit security code. to obtain this, call a volvo dealer and have them run your vin. they may ask for proof of ownership. if the radio has never been changed out, this will fix it for you! the radio says "code" if the battery was disconnected, and if the wrong code was punched in 3 times, it went to "off" :-) if you have difficulty, email me at savolvo at yahoo directly.
Have you found anything out. I brought my volvo in to have the battery replaced and when I picked it up I noticed the odometer was blank (no -----) just blank. I was told it was not related and probably just a bulb. Not a bulb I have no idea. I don't want to replace the cluster unless I'm sure what have you found out. (all my other gauges are fine speed, tach, trip fine)
