    HI,

    I had to boost my S70 Volvo. I had forgotten the radio code. I played
    with different codes before the radio shows OFF. I looked my code up
    on my selling contract. Now I have my code but I can't entered it up
    because the radio constantly shows OFF. Can someone tell me what I
    can do to reset the radio so I can entered the code again.

    Thanks for your help

    Key in position 1 for about 30mins (engine off) radio on, and it should
    eventually revert to being able to accept a code.

    4 hours then radio will show code then enter your code in the radio if
    correct the radio will show on

    If you call your dealer and give them the VIN, they can give you the
    radio reset code. Be sure to write it down WHERE YOU CAN FIND IT for
    future use. When you need to change the battery, you wil need it
    again.

    The radio will only display EEE or OFF when the wrong code has been entered
    and the radio is locked depending on model - this is due to the battery
    being disconnected and the incorrect radio code being entered 3 times. You
    will neet to reset the radio. To do this the radio has to be on for either 2
    or 4 hours.

    This info was on the forum at www.matthewsvolvosite.com

    Alternate method is to pull the radio fuse/relay to remove power from the
    radio to cause the original "no power" to the radio. When you plug them back
    in, you should get the CODE message and can enter the correct radio code.

    I have the same problem with my s70 radio. I already know my code but
    I'm concerned about leaving the car on in position 2 for 2 to 4
    hours. Where is the radio/relay fuse and how do I get to it?

    That will not work as the radio has a memory that will not reset unless
    it is left on for the required amount of time

    I have the same problem. I know the code however, while driving,.. i entered it incorrectly 3 times, not knowing this reset thing would happen.
    I kept the ignition set at position 1 for 2 hours with the radio on. this is what it says to do in the manual. nothing happened, still just off.
    i tried this twice, no luck. also tried to take out the fuse, didn't work.
