Volvo S60 Battery Disconnected?

I had to disconnect my Volvo S60 battery. When I reconnected it, only the front speakers for the stereo were working. The back and side speakers are silent.

I recently bought and installed an in-dash cup holder assembly for my wife’s s60R. Instructions dictated that I disconnect the battery as step 1. Upon completing the somewhat involved procedure to take out the storage compartment and replace it with the cup holder assembly, I reconnected the battery to find that the radio now only operates through the front dashboard speaker – the front and side speakers do not operate.

Security Self-Checking In S60 Radios

There is no such security in place on the AUM (Audio Module; i.e. the radio). On startup, the AUM polls the CEM and checks the Car Configuration File and Structure File; if the radio’s serial is in the CCF and the p/n’s in the Structure File match, it enables itself. The fact that it’s working means that there is no security problem.
