  1. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My 1996 9000 CS didn't have a stereo when I got it. It was completely gone. Looks like the previous owner just cut the speaker wires and took everything else, including the harness behind the radio. Was wondering if anybody had any diagrams/pictures something that can help me locate the wires...
  2. Saab 9-3 & GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi I have a 2001 93 and I want to install an aftermarket head unit, but I want use the existing Saab amp to drive the front door speakers. As I understand the amp gets its signal via a connection from the factory radio. The new headunit has a plug to connect an amp, can I connect that to the...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Reading the manual (as a last resort as usual!) seems to indicate that you can turn the radio on providing the key is not in the ignition. It goes as far as saying that it will turn off automaticaly after (I think) 1 hour to save the battery. But I can't get mine to turn on - is this normal?

  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, I’ve just joined the forum as I have only just bought a 54 plate 9-5 3.0 TiD estate. There is just one problem, hence this post: The radio / Sat Nav has no power whatsoever. I have looked at the fuses inside the drivers door, and as far as I can tell, they are OK. Can anybody...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, I'm new to the forum but not to being a Saab owner, last one was a 95 V4 from the 70s which I only sold a while back. Anyway, I have just purchased a 2001, 9-5 SE with the 2.0LPT engine, and when I am driving and listening to either radio or CD every 30 seconds or so the sound is muted...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    9-3 Sportwagon 18 months old Radio reception on FM is poor. It used to be fine but 'something' happened. Now very poor unless in ideal conditions. Took it Saab dealer in Oxford - v, helpful - but they measured the signal strength at the radio and said it was fine. The only problem is that...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    This weekend I fixed a door lock and had to disconnect the battery on my 1990 9000 turbo. I just realized that now when I turn on the radio, it just beeps. It asked for a code and I tried 1234 but that didn't work. Now it just beeps. How do I reset it?

    New owner of a Used 9.3, 1999. The SID is toast so I ordered a new one. But I'm trying to tune to a specific radio frequency so I can play my Ipod through the factory radio. But since I can't see specifically what station I'm on...I'm having difficulty. When I search, it doesn't land on...

  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The reception on the radio in my 9-5 wagon is very poor. I've been told that the aerials in the side windows are not long enough to give enough gain. Is there a solution to this (assuming that the aerial is the problem)? I'm thinking of a complete replacement with something that will be...
  17. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I am in the process of restoring an '89 900 SPG that I "won" on e-bay. I have done considerable amount of work mechanically, as well as to restore it to its original condition both inside and out. Now I'm at a stage where I want to add a CD, but don't want to destroy the integrity of the...
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Following my previous thread, where I mention my CD player doesn't play CDs, I think that bit is dead, but the radio will also turn itself off, and to get it to work again I need to pull the fuse for the radio diagnostics, then it will turn on again, any suggestions? I already replaced a few...
