    Hello all! Apologies in advance, this will be a somewhat lengthy post because I want to give every detail of the issue: I had my A/C recirculation motor replaced by a shop earlier today (not sure if its related to my current issue, just want to give all of the details). After I picked up my...

    With the engine on I can change the station, using the seek buttons on the icm and on the wheel. But I can't change the volume unless I turn the key to the off position. Any help would be appreciated it's driving me crazy!

  6. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi everyone, I purchased my Saab about 2 months ago, my instrument cluster dials sometimes will not start up, so rev counter goes dead, speedometer goes dead, rarely happens with the fuel gauge and temperature guage. Sometimes pressing the night panel butting brings them back to normal and...
  7. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I recently replaced the belt in my 9-3's cassette mechanism. There's no manual on how to do this, so there was a bit of guesswork involved. In the process, I nudged the rotary encoder that reports the mechanism's location just a tad. Realignment with the timing marks on the mechanism worked for...

    Hello, I have NG 900 S (1996) with the factory radio without CD changer. I would like to play music from my iPhone. I used to do it via the cassette with 3,5 jack. It suddenly stopped working so I'm looking for some other solution. There is the article about soldering 3,5 mm jack to the main...

    Hello, newbie here. I was driving and listening to music with an FM transmitter. I pressed the skip button on the transmitter thinking nothing of it, and then static. I looked down and I saw smoke rising and no power to the transmitter. I then checked it with the lighter in the arm rest and it...
  12. C900 Workshop
    Hi all, I have three of the Clarion CD/EQ units for the c900/9000. All three have the same basic fault. The CD is accepted, but doesn't actually spin up and play. The EQ portion of the units function just fine. Does anyone know of a potential fix for this unit as it seems to be a common...

    Hello, New to forums in general and this is my first post. I have a 2010 95 aero with the harmon kardon sound system. After I finished Work on the valve body in the transmission, and went through the rear diff, an issue with the radio appeared. Sometimes when you get in the car to drive there...

    Hi! I just bough my first Saab. Its a 9-3 2007 2.0T. I really enjoy it but I have a problem with my radio. When the car is on, it is making a constant little annoying buzzing sound. I opened this up and found out that the sound stops when I unplug these wires (see photo). What can I do? Do I...

    Saab 9-3 1.8t 2007(facelift) I got this problem a week ago where i got in the car and the sound just wasn't there. I have the 7 speaker system, I think it's called premium 150 or something. It supposedly has an amp in the front and one in the trunk. The radio still lights up and all the menus...
  16. 9-5 Workshop
    I am attempting to do the opposite of what most threads here discuss: My goal is to remove the navigation unit from my 2005 Aero and put in a nice clean standard head unit that I pulled from a 2004 Arc (single CD and tape deck, no screen). I like the all analog look :D and hope to put bluetooth...

    I am trying to get a tape deck that works for my NG900 ('95 S), and I can't seem to get a unit operational. I'm in possession of 2 radios with different tape deck issues, and am wondering if there's one I should focus on. Original unit - All functions of the cassette player work, except it...
  18. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys, I was wondering if I could ask for your help in diagnosing problems with my 2004 Saab 9-3's SID and radio. I don't know much about cars except for a general idea on how they run and where to turn my wrench. I bought this Saab a while back and the SID and radio didn't work. I had no...

    I am not sure why, but all of a sudden all the speakers except for the back passenger speaker went out. This one back speaker working is the only one working. It does have some static in the sound. Any thoughts on what the cause could be? Amp? Radio? Second follow up, if I purchase a used...

    I have a 2005 9-3 arc, it has a random issue with the radio. It will randomly go out, audio and the lighting in the radio both go out. It’s like it completely lost power. It lasts about 4-5 seconds, then comes back on right where it was when it shut off. Sometimes it goes days without doing it...
