    Head unit FUBAR

    My HU-803 head unit has a knackered display screen only showing half the info and the rest is all yellow! Also the CD player jumps all the time so I have sourced a perfect second hand one.

    The trouble is the geezer says it needs ‘RECODING’ ??

    Never heard of this before on a Volvo radio, so whats the score if I just swap them out? There is no CODE as such it comes on straight away after disconnecting the battery so what CODE does he mean please?

    2002 - C70 T5 - DEAD steering rack, handbrake etc etc
    1997 - V70 T5 ex -armed response unit - killed by a skip lorry, gone but not forgotten
    Next on shopping list - C30 T5 or V50?

    Most headunits have a 4 digit security code if the power is disconnected for a significant time.
    Not sure if Volvo HU units do. All you can do is plug it in and see. If it then says 'CODE' in the display when you switch it on, then it will need the code.

    The hu803 has no security code as such but it is programmed to the car it is fitted in. It will need programming to the car by volvo or an Indy with vida software update capability.

    Your current hu803 can be repaired. There are a couple of firms online that repair them.

    So your saying if I was to remove my hu-803 to change the lamps and refit it I'll need someone to program it again. It won't take long to swap the lamps so surely it won't lose its memory that quick right?
