      Lightbulb How to unlock the Volvo radio - Detailed Video

      This video will show you how to unlock the radio in Volvo's that require the code after they have lost power (battery disconnect) and / or if they have been removed or replaced. This applies to the SC-xxx radio series most often found in the 850, 960, S90, V90, S70, V70, S40, V40 and maybe some other Volvo models.

      At 1:39 I tell where you can normally find the code. Also, @ 5:45 I instructed people to call the dealer to get the correct code if they can't find it.

      If you'd like, you can post your phone number and people can call you to get the code to their radio.

      Good to hear that people are finding you for their codes.

      I just posted it in the general section to get it posted. In 1 day over 80 people have viewed the post so hopefully people that need it will find it. If you'd like, you can copy if over if you think it's worth people's time.
