  1. Hands Free Project!

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi everyone, I'm an engineering student home for the summer (and bored), so I thought I'd work on a project. End Goal: Create a bluetooth capable piece of hardware that can emulate the OnStar box/rear CD changer via O-Bus and I-Bus. It'll be able to interface with steering wheel controls, the...

  3. OnStar controller module location

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Where is the OnStar controller module in the 9-3? Does anyone have a picture of it? I just finished adapting a Bluestar 2010 for use in my VW Passat and a (very non-technical) friend of mine is now asking if I can do it for his 2001 9-3. I need to know where the module is and what kind of...

  5. Anyone Deleted the Onstar Buttons?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Since the Onstar doesn't work in our cars anymore, has anyone removed the Onstar buttons? If so what did you put in the dash to fill up the empty space? I was thinking of some type of mod but I really don't know. Maybe a USB charging station? Pics would be great with any discussion. Thanks.

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi all. I've searched on here for these answers and I have not found anything on one and nothing definitive on the other (Onstar).

  8. Need pic of the Onstar, XM Antenna connections

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Does anyone happen to have a pic of the leads and connectors from this anntenna? I'm trying to add nav to my 09 and I'm wondering if there's a third lead to run an antenna line. The car is equipped with Onstar and XM.
  9. Handsfree phone input help!

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I was looking into ways to hook up an MP3 player to the radio unit in my 2001 9-3. A couple places on the web suggest plugging an "adapter harness for mobile phone (400 109 179)" component behind the glovebox, and then soldering a toggle switch and 1/8" headphone jack to four wires off the...
