    Having changed my battery after 5yrs on my Volvo 760 the radio is
    looking for the code. The last time a Volvo dealer changed the batery
    and I have no idea what they would have set it to.

    Is their a default code? or how do I get it reset?

    Regards

  2. Should have been stuck in your owners handbook or the folder it came in.
    Take to dealer and ask for code to match your VIN.

    Cheers, Peter.

  3. Go to (or call) the dealer who changed your battery. They would have
    had to retrieve the code for your radio to reset it afterwards. They
    probably still have it on file.

    If that is not an option, go to any other Volvo dealer. Some may try
    to charge you to retrieve the code for you, some won't in my
    experience.

    There is no default code by all accounts, nor can the dealer change
    it. They just have to find out what the original one is and type it in
    after reconnecting the radio to the battery.

    (Keep a note of it, but not in the car! :)

  4. When you have been able to switch your radio on again you can reset the code
    to what you will quite simply, even to zero code.

    sometime does volvo have the code in a database ,

    otherwise can you order through the serienummret that you can read of on the
    sterion

    then will volvo logging to an database there many volvo&renault codes stands

    here in sweden it cost volvo about 12$ to search for an code and they takes
    aboute 16$ from the customer

    but if we have it typed in our database the customer often receives it for
    free

    against identification
