How to unlock my 2000 volvo s70 radio code. It says ''OFF''

Hello i live in nigeria. My uncle in atlanta GA,USA sent us a 2000 volvo s70 since the year 2006. If you on the radio of the car,it says''OFF''. Some mechanics around nigeria says we should buy another radio but i like that kind of radio in the volvo car. I dont think there is a volvo dealer in the city that i live. i live in enugu state nigeria. and sending it back to usa is going to cost. i may end up not enjoying this holiday. pls get back to me asap.
Complement of the season,

    Two Methods: (a) Take your Registration with you to the nearest volvo dealer and you'll be provided with the code., (b) Make sure All lights off, then turn the key to position 2 (ii), turn the radio on, and leave for two hours. After two hours elapsed, the radio is ready to accept the code. Try and input it now...make sure you have the right code, otherwise, after 3 (Wrong) atempts, the radio would lock up again. Good luck

If the radio say off someone must have entered the code wrong to many times if that's the case the only way to get it back to be able to enter the free code you get from the Volvo dealer or from the top of the radio is to turn the key into the on position as if the car was running for two hours to reset the radio

First thing you have to do is to find the right 4 digit code.

I have a same car myself.
I bought it in New Zealand as a second hand , I had a same problem. Luckily I found the dealer contact number in Singapore [the car was from Singapore], I phoned them and they found the code in a flick. And my s70 radio is up & running.

Hpoe this helps,

The only way to unlock the radio without you having a code is the Volvo service center. They have instrumentation that they attach through the computer brain and unlocks the radio.

My volvo radio is not working and says ''code''

Factory Volvo radios have electronic locks in them to prevent theft. Any time that power is disconnected from the radio a code must be re-entered to make the radio operational again. This code is available from any Volvo dealer's service department but most of them want you to appear in person with the car (to prove ownership) before they will give the code. The instructions for entering the code are in the owners manual or can be easily described by the dealer.
