I need a radio unlock code for a 1995 Volvo 850. VIN yv1lw5515s2089818.
HiCustomer it's too late tonight but I can get you the code tomorrow morning. Will that be ok?

No rush. Thanks!

Good morningCustomer your radio code is 1214. Let me know if you have a problem.


After installation or when the set has been disconnected from power, the set displays "codE" when it is switched on. Enter the 4-digit code using the preset buttons. If the correct code is entered the set is ready to use.

If you enter an incorrect code you must enter the correct code again from the beginning.

Incorrect Code

If an incorrect code has been entered "EEEE" is displayed. Enter the correct code. After three unsuccessful coding attempts the set will lock and remain locked for two hours . "OFF" is displayed.

During this waiting period:

  • the battery must be connected.
  • the ignition key must be turned to position I.
  • the unit must be turned on.

Make sure the headlights are turned off to help prevent battery drain.

Enter the code again once this time has elapsed.
