  1. Flashing dash lights, no audio, no turning indicator sounds, no SID - 2003 Saab 9-3 Linear

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    A CD got stuck in my stock stereo, so I had an aux adapter installed that I can plug my iphone into. Shortly after, my car battery died (possibly due to a bad tail light ground). When I replaced my battery, the SID and all sounds, and my dash lights were out, except lights flashing on a bit...
  2. 2006 Aero audio upgrade?

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    I’ve recently returned to the fold and purchased a 2006 9-3 2.8 Aero. I love the car and after not owning a Saab for 5 years or so really enjoy driving it. But the Audio system is sub standard and things have moved on a lot since Saab stopped production. Mine is the version which I’m told the...
  3. 07' Saab 93 Intermittent no sound from stock stereo, AUX, or CD!

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    My stereo works 70 % of the time. The head unit always remains powered on, but occasionally while I'm listening to a song either on the radio, aux, or cd, it goes mute for a couple seconds and then comes back on. Sometimes the mute intervals are several minutes. It's getting really frustrating...
  4. 93 +07 amp wiring

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    Hello. I have 150W sound system and I want to upgrade it. My plan is add little amplifier Audison SRX2 and 6,5 speakers to rear tray. Is possible to connect it to existing power wires? Amplifier has 20A fuse, when I calculate 7A per 1mm2, this mean max. 3mm2 power wire. Relatively thick wires I...
  5. 4 speaker Linear to 7 speaker Arc

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    Forgive me as I know this is a common topic on here but I'm extremely confused. My 05 linear has the 4 speaker system and I'd like to go to the Pick'n'pull and rip out a 7 speaker system including the head unit. Has anyone done this? I would imagine you need a tech 2 to marry the head unit...
  6. Linear to Arc head unit. Plug and play??

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    I recently went from an 03' 9-3 ARC to an 05' 9-3 Linear. I liked the look of the head unit on the ARC and want to go to the pick and pull and grab one out of a wrecked car. Does anyone know if you can just swap them out? or does it mess with the fiberoptic loop? Thanks in advance for any help!!
  7. Unlock Codes for audio systems Saab 9-3 Aero 2005

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    I had to replace the head unit (display) and the receiver unit on my 2005 9-3 Aero. I bought both units used on ebay. However, now apparently we have to enter unlock codes into the ODBII scanner so the units can work. Anybody know these codes and what I can do to get the units and my audio...

  9. 01 Saab 9-5 AM/FM No audio, CD is fine

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    Ok so just maybe someone has had this issue. When I play a cd or cassette in my 9-5 radio audio is fine. However, in AM or FM 1 or 2 there is no audio at all, the station information does display if the Information center. My guess is the radio is dead as there is not even static but maybe...

  11. Speakers/radio not working - apparently it's not the amp

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    A few months ago, the radio/speakers in my 2003 Saab 9-3 started acting up. It would cut out/wouldn't turn on when the car was started but would sometimes come back on. Eventually, it stopped working all together (speakers, turn signals, and display are all out). I did some research of what was...

  14. 2004 Saab 9-3 Aero with Premiere sound problem

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    The problem is a very weak sound stage coming from the back when I turn the fader all the way to the rear. The difference is really noticeable as the front is twice, maybe three times as loud as the rear. It's my wife's car and she says it wasn't like this before the stock defective head unit...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    2001 9-3 SE Convertible (I think my car has only 4 speakers) So, I guess I'm just looking for confirmation that this is difficult to do because of the size of the double DIN head units. I had this dream of installing a video double din head unit and then snaking a backup camera to it to...

  20. Audio not going to speakers equally (cassette)

    9-5 Workshop
    I use a cassette adapter to use my mp3 in my '00 9-5, but music never plays through the left half of the speakers. I pulled the volume nob out (Balance) and twisted it to the left all the way to send the sound to the left half of the car, but it just goes silent. Also, the back speakers have...
