Question about 2003 Volvo S40
My battery died on my Volvo so when I put in my new battery the radio asked for a code. Apparently in order to get my radio I need some type of code for it. I own a 2003 s40 Volvo.
Usually when a code is needed you can talk to your local dealer and they should be able to get the code from the factory, when they get it usually you have turn the key to acc for about 5 minutes (sometimes longer) and then you input the code by whatever means like using your seek buttons to change the number and your volume knob or buttons to change which character you are wanting to change

Tips for a great answer:
Dealers have your radio code in a database, and can look it up. Many will give you the code over the phone if you've lost your card. You can call any Volvo dealer: they all have the same computer system to look up your Volvo radio code.
Sometimes the code is written on the radio itself. But you have to pull the radio out (not hard) to see it.
Other dealers will have you drive to their lot and speak to them in person. Because the dealer will need to read off the radio's serial number to cross-reference it with the unique code, bring your radio, and your Volvo. Some reportedly charge US$10-$100 for this. Hmmmmm. I suppose dealers can choose to charge for this, and we can choose to not go back, right?
If you don't have the code, call the dealer to ask what they need from you. Don't pay the dealer any money for the code! If they want money, hang up and call another.
Good Luck!! A 4 THUMBS UP rating for this solution will be highly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!
