    took my battery out before turning off the SC-816 (I really didn't know it was on since the old battery was dead). So, how does one figure out the anti-theft code?

How to get free unlock code for radio which model N0= sc-816

You need the VIN of the car the radio came in, and with that the dealership can get you the code.

I don't know if the dealership can look up the radio code by the serial number on the radio itself.

My dad got a volvo v40 and hes got a anti theft CR-902 RDS audio system. He had to disconnect the battery and when he connected it he entered his code 3 times and press the wrong number and now it says...

When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect itagain, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your carradio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. Ifyou do not have this code you need to go to your Volvo servicecentre and get them to enter this code for you.

I bought a 98 s90 and hsve been unable to use the radio cuz i dont have the code. called volvo shop and they gave me a code did not work. the radiois a sc-816

If the code given by your Volvo Dealer does not work then it will have to be taken into a Radio Decoding Service who will open it up and read the code inside the EEPROM Memory Chip

It will not be available for free from anywhere on theInternet as it is a Mitsubishi radio and these codes cannot be calculated as there is no commercially available software

The battery was replaced and now the radio in my 2003 gti does not work

When you disconnect/replace a car battery, your radio anti-theft security system will be triggered: consult your car user manual on how to reset the anti-theft security for your particular radio/audio system: you will need to enter a specific 'security code' that should have been provided when your car or car audio system was bought.

Unlock a volvo sc-816 radio

The SC-816 is made by MITSUBISHI and the code cannot be calculated for free from anywhere on the Internet.

Try your Volvo Main Dealer....or a Decoding service who will plug it into a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)

Howver many Volvo Dealers offer the code for free provided you can quote the car VIN number and the radio serial number

Battery died and anti theft code went into effect

Call your Volvo dealer with the VIN number. They can give you the code and advise if you can reset it yourself or if you will have to take it in.
