Default Need radio code for Volvo 240

Hey guys,
I have a friend who recently purchased a 240 and his radio is reading "CODE"

This is the VIN:
YV1AA8854M1904931

It is a 1991 240.
If you can get me the radio code, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!

I searched and saw that members on here were able to give the radio code because they work at the dealer...I was hoping that would be the case with this thread as well.

Hi would you be able to get me the code for my radio as well? I just got my 1993 Volvo 240 and the dealership over here claims they can't get my code. My VIN is YV1AS 8803P 14831 92

So is there some secret data base to get these codes from the VIN? Fortunately when I bought my 740, the previous owner had written the code on the front of the owner's manual with black marker. I now have it on a label inside the glove box.

Hi is it possible to look up the radio code using the radio's serial number alone? I recently purchased a used SC-811 radio off eBay which has no code, radio part numbe 3533535 and the serial number is B41272562. If I can get the code that would be great as I hope I haven't just bought an expensive paperweight!

Got the code from the SF dealer! All set now, the San Diego dealer wanted to charge me $10 for it, good advice to call around...

Cheers,

Yes, the dealer can use the radio part number and serial number to look up the code. I have them do it quite often since so many Volvos I buy have had their stereos replaced.

Says wrong VIN or car does not require radio code, so I still need the help of someone who works at a US Volvo dealer to look up via part number & serial number.

Radio part number is 3533535
Serial number is B41272562

Thanks.

Same problem here, the radio display says "CODE".
I've tried the radio code form (with fake info) but it replied the car does not require a radio code.

I have a Volvo 240 from 1989 and I think the radio might not be the original. That might explain why it was not recognised when requesting the code.

VIN: yv1244883k1360082.
Radio model: CR-905
Radio serial: vo1090 h6241101a

Is there any way to get the code?

Yes, use the serial number and model number off the radio itself and have the dealer look it up for you.

Thanks for your reply.
I tried calling several dealers and they all charge around €25 and they want me to drive by.
Also heard that it could take 1 or 1,5 weeks before they get the code, and we plan to go on holiday in 5 days :(

Right below the word Volvo there will be a part number. The dealer needs that information also.

I can get the code for you. PM sent.
