: 97 Saab 9000 stereo wiring dilemma

5th August 2002, 04:48 AM

I was trying to insert a new Blaupunkt CD player into the dash slot of my 97 Saab 9000. The fittings were all perfect, but the ISO connectors have one flaw - the speaker block on the back of the stereo accepts 8 pins (4 speakers, +ve & -ve), but the block with all the wires is a 10 pin block! However, just to complicate matters further, there are only 9 pins wired up! I have read the wiring diagrams in the Haynes manual, and the only one I don't understand is the extra ninth one, which is yellow.

Anyone got any ideas? Am I doing something really daft?

You may be able to get an adaptor form these guys without having to hack up your existing wiring....

Thanks for your help. I e-mailed the fella who wrote an article on Saab stereos in the tech.help section (Matt Faulkes) and he gave me some excellent advice which worked perfectly!
