Hi

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?

Cheers!

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!

Silence is no longer golden!
