Customer Question

Hi, the sc-805 radio in my volvo v90 died recently, so i bought a used unit but it did not come with a code, can you help please?
JA: Has the battery been recently disconnected? Have you checked the manual or the glove box for the radio code?
Customer: The serial no is VO0690-X0279332G
JA: What year is your V90?
Customer: 1997, but the radio I now have is not original to the car

JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Volvo Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I see that your question has been up for an extended time without a response and while although I'm unable to help in the capacity you were hoping I wanted to post to let you know why.

Manufacturers' corporate policies require that proof of vehicle and radio ownership is verified in person to release a radio or security system code, and they aren't to be posted in public venues such as this. Due to the length of time your question has been up without a response I believe that either no experts currently on the site have access to obtain the code or noone feels comfortable posting it here.

There are two things you can do. You can try http://www.radio-code.com to see if they're able to obtain the code. The other option would be to see your dealer with the serial and proof of ownership and they'll be able to give it to you.
