  1. RADIO DOESNT WORK

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    Alright guys, I know there’s a bunch of forums on this already but I feel like I’ve read everything and still can’t figure it out. I have a 2005 Saab 93 ARC Sedan. I’ve been having radio issues for quite some time. I’ve followed a lot of forums and tips but I still can’t figure it out. Here’s...
  2. Constant Radio Static (2004 9-3 Convertible)

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    Every time I try to use my radio, I get nothing but static on every station. This happened abruptly; I came home one day (top was down), had the radio on working fine, went in and made lunch, came back out 20 mins later and it hasn't worked since. Didn't even put the top back up while I was...
  3. My radio switches on and off every 10 minutes

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    I got a problem with my entertainment system, whereby the whole thing turns itself off every 10 minutes and then a second or two later it switches itself on again as normal. Apart from these 10 minutes, the radio and CD player work fine. It's just a minor irritation which I would rather do...
  4. Radio signal worsens after ~1 hr driving

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    I picked up my 03 SS almost a year ago, and have been working my way down my deficiencies list. Next up is the radio reception. My issue is that, for about the first hour, the radio works perfectly. I don't listen to AM, but all the local FM stations come in as well as they do in any other car...
  5. 9-3 30 volt radio?

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    Hey everyone. So I'm looking to upgrade my head unit, and after I pulled the old one out, I noticed that the pinout sticker shows that the only two power supplies in the factory wiring are a 15v supply and a 30v supply. After searching for something that would be a (somewhat) direct swap, I'm...
  6. 2002 9-3 Radio and Blinker issue, Amp Failure

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey guys, I've been looking around and it looks like these two problems are related - to the radio amp possibly. The previous owner said the radio was bad and was draining the battery dead so he pulled the fuse for the radio. I replaced the fuse, the radio still doesn't work but the CD moter...
  7. Installing Stereo in 2002 9-3 SE

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    Hi all, I recently purchased a 2002 Saab 9-3 SE, and wanted to install an aftermarket stereo into my Saab 9-3. I don't want to replace the speakers or anything, just the stereo. I was wondering how simple of a process this is. I am very good with home audio equipment, but am a total novice with...
  8. Dash Issues

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I just bought my Saab a few days ago knowing it needs some work done to it; however, I'm at a standstill. My radio will not turn on at all, and neither will my blower fan; the SID control knob also bugs out occasionally jumping two to three settings ahead. I'm not sure if the issues are...

    Hey guys I'm new to this. I have a 2004 saab 9-3 sedan. My radio was working fine until today and whenever I turn up the volume on my radio the music will still play but it has static that cuts in and out and is quite annoying. Also I recently put in subs but they did not affect the speakers...
  10. 2001 9-3 Radio Not Working

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey Everyone, I"m new to this so bear with me. I have a 2001 9-3 with a radio issue. Pretty common I know but its a little different than what I've read about elsewhere. The radio/cd player doesn't turn on and the antenna is frozen 3/4 of the way down. Usually I see that this is an amp issue...

    I recently purchased an '04 Saab 9-3 and want to add an AUX port. On the directions for installation it says that a Saab dealer has to turn on the AUX option in the radio using the Tech II device. However, when I flip through the radio options (FM, CD, etc.) the AUX option comes up even though...

    I have a 2006 Saab 9-3 convertible and just got it back from the body shop to replace the front bumper after it was torn off while driving in heavy snow. When I picked the car up, the clock was reset to --:-- so I set the time, I figured they must've disconnected the battery. For some reason...
