  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    2001 9-3 Viggen. The predicament: the climate control display is entirely and absolutely broken. Hate to see it. I’ve been able to find ribbon cables for the SID, which I need anyhow, but none for the climate control display. If someone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate...

    New Saab owner here! With some (great) difficulty, I've just finished installing an Android head unit, new amp and speakers in my partner's 9-3 convertible. I'm hoping to get the existing steering wheel controls working with the new head unit, but given how tightly-integrated the EHU, ICM and...

    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!!
  4. 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...

  8. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I bought a 2003 9-3 linear with the 7 speaker system and the door speakers just played static as if they were blown so the first thing I did was change them out. That did not solve the problem. so I figured the amp was bad. I got an amp from a shop and put it in... got the exact same problem...

    Hey everyone, First, I know there are several other threads that talk about upgrading the stereo system and head-unit. However, I couldn't find anything for my year and also, I do not want to replace any speakers or put in an aftermarket amp. I literally am just trying to replace my stock...

    After looking through the endless amount of posts regarding the audio in our saabs I feel like I have a great idea but feel like it would be too easy. For starters I have a 1997 900se with the 6 speaker system and have began to upgrade the previously 100% stock speakers. I have ordered MTX 6.5...

  13. NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    anyone know what's going on here? From what I've read there ought to be a connection for the amp on the right side of the head unit. Mine seems to just have the one on the back, which I thought was for the CD changer.. what can you all tell me? back: right: Just as an aside, I'm guessing...
