My guess is that the power wire is wired incorrectly. Not the main power wire but the one for the clock needs to be wired to main power and the 12v for radio needs to be wired to accessory 12v. I think you have them backwards is my guess.

Older radios used to show a wire for Bat and a wire for Clock, so one was always hot (Clock) and one was switched power (Bat). I'm looking at pictures of my radio and it doesn't show a clock wire so no help there.

Saab has interesting ways of labeling their power wires. If you look at the diagram on top of the radio, +15 is the ignition-switched power wire and +30 is the constant power wire (backup or clock).

If you're still using the Saab factory amp (it's on the right hand A-pillar behind the carpet) you need to use the Pre-out from the new head unit. (and a set of ground loop isolators to prevent the loud pop). you also need to wire the "amp turn on" lead from the head unit into the wiring harness.

Saab is odd with its wiring, on the main harness there is only an un switched power, that should go to the "red" wire (usually) on your new head unit. If you want a wire that works when you turn the key on to turn the unit on without having to turn the car fully on you can find it on the back of the headlight switch.

go here if you want to read all about what you have to do to make it work properly

Thats where im getting stumped at is when i look at stock radio it has that little diagram of the wires and theres only amp mute Tele mute ant.trig 30+ 15+ and grnd. So i have to splice into the amp wireharness for that amp remot connection?? Thats where im getting stumped at

ANT TRIG (antenna trigger) is the wire you need to connect to in order to turn the amp on. Hook your JVC's antenna/amp trigger wire up to that pin in the wiring harness and the amp will turn on like it should.
