After some work on the car the code needed re-entering. I put in the wrong code and I am not 100% sure i know the right one.

What can I do to clear the wrong code, does one simply type in the correct code or do you need to press something else after (I have nbo users manual)

If it is a Saab radio (whatever they fitted as standard at the time) the dealer _may_ have a record.

Even if you were not the original purchaser, pop down to your local friendly dealer with your log book (and maybe other ID) as proof of ownership and identity.

If they have the info then they should be able to help. If they do not have the info, don't blame them.

Obviously if it is an aftermarket unit, ignore the above.

Simply type in the correct code next time you switch on the ignition. SAAB keep a code database, but you may be charged a search fee. If you want to see the make of radio unit, pull same forward with hooked wires through holes in front panel. If it fails to come forward, some obsessive compulsive may have fixed the unit with a nut on the lug at rear of unit. In this case you'll have to lift the dash to look down. Have fun. Search fee is the easiest!!!!

It's certainly not going to hurt to power-cycle the stereo. Disconnection of the battery is probably the easiest way to do this though I don't know how long it takes for the stereo to lose it's memory. Trial & error I guess or leave it disconnected overnight.

My manual states that if the wrong code is put in you should press and hold the "band" button until it asks for code again. I know this works as I've had to do it myself. As for obtaining the proper code, Saab will give it to you at no charge as long as you can show proof of ownership and give them the radio serial #.

Thank You - holding down the band button worked. Its all sorted now cheers for the help. I need it, just had my autobox rebuilt due to a faulty oil pump - £1400 from an independent Saab specialist.
