My best guess at a first attempt fix would be to run a cleaning disc in it. Hopefully someone will be able to tell you what error code 2 means. (No in-dash CD player in the 900's)

I had the same problem with my stock radio/cd/cassette with trunk mounted 6 disc changer in my 95 900SE Convert. I cleaned the trunk mounted unit and the connectors booth ends...and I don't have any problems since...I also double checked the grounding to the cd changer...
wish you luck...to me the original equipment sounds as good as most after market...and is ORIGINAL!!

When I first started burning CDs, I would ocassionally get an Error 2. IIRC, this was because I overwrote the CD - put too much data on the CD.

But this problem comes down to plain old troubleshooting: If no CDs play in one car, but play in another car, it's a bad CD player and you replace the player. Just like with a bad direct injection cassette. There are no Saab procedures for cleaning and/or adjusting the CD player. Maybe if you take the unit apart, you will find some dust or dirt that's keeping it from working. Even better, maybe you'll find the manufacturer code and then do a Google search on repair procedures. Most likely, you'll find links to a few repair facilities that will charge you two or three times more than the replacement value just to look at it. If it was me, I would be looking for one one eBay... Ron

The CD changer on my 1996 900SE didn't work after a battery change.
I poked around on the internet, and (as I recall), found a recommended solution on saabnet dot com. It worked for me, and I do have it printed out somewhere. I'll check around and see if I really put it somewhere that I can put my hands on it in a few seconds!
