Volvo radio unlock problem

I had to take the battery out my car, then i put in the unlock code for the radio. Two weeks later the battery had to come out again but when i turn on the radio it does not ask for the code it says off instead. Do u know what the problem is and how i get the code in.

Turn the ignition on 1st position. Engine off. Ensure headlights are off to avoid battery drain. Turn power to radio on, 'Off' appears. Leave like this for approx 2 hours. It should then ask you for the code again.

Turned radio off then battery died, got vehicle fixed but no power to factory radio, all fuses check as good. Is there a trick to getting the radio to turn on again?


when the battery dies or is removed , the anti-theft code of the radio kicks in and the unit will not work again until a special code for that radio is reinstalled
the code could be in the user manual in the radio use section ,or there are sites on the net that may have the code for you

Radio quit working


Sounds like someone shorted the wires...you need to look into the entire butcher job and see what wires were touched. Disconnect everything the butcher did and then see if your battery is still drainning power.

I removed the battery and when i put it back i cant turn on the radio it ask me for a Code and i dont Know it


You have to go to the dealership to get the theft lock code for the radio if you don't already have it. go to the parts department, tell them your need a radio code and give them your VIN. They'll probably charge you a couple bucks and turn it on for you. just make sure you right the code down for later, if you ever changer the battery again.

How do you unlock the stereo in a Chevy 2002 Silverado?


You will have to access a 6 digit code out of the radio Theftlock system then still go to a dealership to get the 4 digit code that unlocks the radio. Most people put in a radio code (4 digits) when new then forget it years later when the battery is replaced or radio removed. Press preset buttons #2 & #3 at the same time with the key in run position and radio on. A 3 digit code should be displayed (write it down) then immediately press the AM/FM button, another 3 digit code will appear. Take the 6 digit code to a GM dealer. They will call Delcotronics with the generic 6 digit code and get you the master unlock code for your radio. You can dial it in using the scan buttons (best to ask the dealer how, or get them to do it). Once set you can change it again or write down the master unlock code and keep it somewhere for the next time the battery is disconnected. If you can't access the 6 digit code, you will still need to bring it to a dealership and have it unlocked by reprogramming it. It actually is a module on the data line and can create trouble codes and be programmed. It can not be taken from your truck and used in any other vehicle unless programmed to that vehicle.

Radio CD not working & lights don't flash remote keylock


Sometime the computer in car will shut down a circuit when it sees a problem even if it only occure once. You can try to disconnect the battery for at least 2 min so all sys power off (some have capacitors that mantaine a charge for short time). If a battery disconnect does not clear problem you have go to dealer and have them to clear codes and reset you modules and your preferences
