You will have to call the dealer and get the code (you will need the VIN or the radio model # and serial #). Since your radio display says off, you will have to leave the radio on with ignition key in the number 1 position until it says code. Then you can put in the code. Hope this helps.

My 1993 940 non-turbo just dies when running as if the alternator is bad. However, the alternator has been replaced. It still dies and needs to be jumped. When jumped, it'll run for a bit then die a...


OK the battery in good charge should be at 12.5 volts ( as measured with a voltmeter across the terminals) When the engine is running you should expect the reading to be about 14 volts. Put the lights on ( a load on the battery) and the voltage can go as high as 14.5v. Switch everything off (I mean everything..radio etc) and disconnect the negative terminal to the battery. Now put the meter in ammeter mode and measure the current between the negative terminal and the cable that is now disconnected. It should be really very low current (milliamps at most), switch on the lights to show ourself what that current drain looks like. If the residual current looks significant take out each fuse in turn and return it noting on pen and paper any drop in current when the fuse is out. This process will identify the circuit that is draining the battery. Check the wires and junctions in this circuit for shorts etc. If its lights try removing bulbs until the current drain stops If possible leave the fuse out over night on this circuit and see if this effects the battery's ability to charge and stay charged.

A volvo dealership can tell you , or if you have the owners manual , and are lucky , you might find that the original owner wrote the code down in the book somewhere.

Need radio code for a 1993 Volvo 940 GL


I'm pretty sure that you can call any Volvo dealer and get the code...talk to the service manager.

You can pay for codes online but there is no real need to.

1992 960 volvo wagon 208k. Daughter left lights on drained battery - jump started and driving well, however stereo won't work now. Any ideas????


If it is a combined radio/stereo system the drained battery may have caused it to lose it's code - you will need to re-enter the radio code to make it work properly. This is similar to removing the battery from the car - you have to re-enter the radio code before the radio will work.

If there's no power at all to your stereo it's possible that jump-starting the car has caused a power surge that has blown a fuse. Depending on what type of radio/stereo is fitted, there usually is a small in-line fuse in the wiring at the rear of the unit. Check the fuse.

I have a volvo 940 and I disconnected the battery. When I hooked the battery back up, the car would not start. There is a red light near the steering wheel that is flashing. What does this light mean...


Sounds as if you have set the immobiliser, does your car have the volvo guard alarm system fitted, (is the red light on the window frame?) I found that when reconnecting the battery if you just tap the connector on the terminal 4-5 times before connecting it it would reset the immobiliser and the car will start
