I recently have been having a strange problem with the radio on my 2004 9-5 ARC. First a little background information. I got the Saab from my uncle as a first car (very lucky in that department, as it is probably the nicest car at my school), and there were a few minor problems which my mechanic fixed rather quickly. However, two weeks after I started to drive it, the radio stopped working. The mechanic said it was fried, and to purchase one from a junkyard, which i did. Unaware of the marriage/divorce issue, i tried to just switch out the radio, which didn't work. The mechanic couldn't help either, because he was more familiar with the 9-3 code system. Abandoning all hope, I went to the dealer, who also couldn't do anything because the original radio can't be divorced because it doesn't work. They offered to mail it to Crutchfield, but said that it would probably cost a LOT of money. Long story short, I've had no radio for almost a year, and I finally snapped. I decided to fix the radio myself, thinking I was smarter than the dealer, my mechanic, and the car (which is probably not true, but definatly not true about the car part). Anyways, by turning off the radio, holding down the band button, and turning the radio back on while still holding the button down, I got the radio to come on and stay on (I don't know if anyone has ever done this before, but I thought it was very strange that the system could be beaten so easily). Now, however, the radio plays, but only through one speaker at a time. I have no idea what is going on and was hoping someone here might know. I couldn't find anything about this issue elsewhere. Thanks for your help, and please note that i'm usually really busy, so if I don't respond immediately, I'm not blowing anyone off and will respond soon. Thanks again for any help you can provide.
