SOURCE: code stereo volvo 1993 850 GLT
If you need the security code, you need to call a Volvo dealer and give them the VIN number, provided it is the same stereo the car came with. Most dealers will do it for free, if you can't find one, call Boston Volvo Village.

The most common cause is either a bad air pump (under your battery tray) and/or a bad SAS check valve which is connected in to your exhaust next to the firewall in the engine compartment. It could also be a bad relay for the motor. Less common, but possible, other bad components are the vacuum solenoid that controls the SAS valve, which is located by the radiator or a broken/leaking vacuum line to or from the solenoid.
You can test the motor by jumping the relay or applying 12v straight to it. If the motor runs it most likely is not the problem. If not, it's likely that there is water in it and you should replace both the motor and SAS valve. The SAS valve is a pain to get unbolted, at least on turbo cars. You can check the solenoid by just making sure there is vacuum going to the SAS valve a few seconds after starting up the car cold, and checking the lines for any obvious wear in the rubber elbows or breaks in the plastic line.

go to your local volvo dealership, and you must have the car in your name, but ask one of the mechanics if you can have the code for your radio, they'll look it up and give it to you I believe.

Found it. It's near the front on the passenger side of the car.
Unfortunately I'm getting another engine code after replacing this. Now it's P0108-- mass air flow sensor. I know where this one is.
