I want to put aftermarket radio in my 1996 saab 900 Se turbo, I went to autozone looking for saab wiring harness no luck. so i took the manufacture radio out and tried to connect the wires. problem is none of the aftermarket radio wires are same color as the saabs. Does anybody know how to wire a aftermarket radio in saab?
i looked around internet i found a diagram but am not sure if its correct for my car, because it says 900 so im thinking it might be referring to the classics

Did you find the correct wiring guide or did this one you found work for you? I am also having problems finding a guide. Would appreciate all the help I can get

Just plug it into a VW adapter harness, then all the wires coming out of the adapter will match the color coding of aftermarket radios and you wont have to cut up the stock harness.

What jake said, or get it from genuinesaab. Like 12 bucks and works great, also have the little cubby if you're putting a single din in
