    Cool Saab 9-5 Ipod cable

    Has anyone got a source for a cheap ipod (3.5mm jack) cable for my 9-5. 1999 saloon variation.

    Been around the forums a bit and all i can find is one supplier who want 120 quid for what is essentially a cable! ( http://www.saabaux.com/ )

    That is about a quarter of the market value of my car - for a ipod cable!

    Anyone got any better ideas. Open to all options. I just want to play my mp3's. I haven't got a tape player and the fm transmitters are a bit fiddly for my liking.

    Any ideas chaps?

    67 views and not one idea?

    I assume you'd all just spend 120 quid on the cdconnect cable...

    thank you for your advice but both of these are FM transmitter solutions, which as I mentioned is not ideal.

    I really need a cable with a 3.5mm jack that i can wire in and use the aux function on my 9-5. Have google extensively and the only solution is that Cdconnect cable which as I said is mega expensive.

    They are hard wired in, and allow you to charge the phone/pod as well unlike the aux option

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Saab-9-3-9...-/221303003249
    Or is that better ?

    Or if not ring them and ask if they have anything suitable 01914602810

    Re: Saab 9-5 Ipod cable

    close my friend, that is indeed what i am looking for but not compatible with my 9-5 (1999)...

    I have honestly googled and ebayed the hell out of it. It seems i am stuffed or doing a diy cable...

    "This Saab aux input adapter is compatible with the following:
    • Saab 9-3 2006 - 2009 with AUX button, or active AUX function when you press the source button.
    • Saab 9-5 2006 - 2009 with AUX button, or active AUX function when you press"

    160 views and no one can help with this. Are we saying a diy cable is the only solution. Google has not been my friend thus far!

    Do you have an AUX in port?

    Assume so. I haven't had it out to check, but just assumed these stereos all had an aux out as a CD changer was an option when new... Have I got it wrong? Its a '99 se with CD player.

    I've had a look at the owners manual for a 2000 reg 9-5 and it doesn't mention anything about at AUX port in the audio section. My suggestion would be that you look at the following link http://www.saabinfo.net/files/pdf/Sa...000_manual.pdf and go to page 81 to see an image of a 9-5 cd and cassette audio system. Perhaps you could get hold of one of these and use a tape cassette with a jack cable to plug in to your ipod, something i used when i had my 900 se. You can pick them up for around £10-15.

    Yup - its a cd. Looks like the only solution is some DIY soldering... I'll have a look at my manual to see if I have aux out, i guess this will have to be enabled by tech2 as well...

    When did they stop fitting tape players, I suspect yours may have been replaced at some time, my 2001my 9-5 has both

    I'm pretty sure Aero and SE models had the cd player as an option...
