Re: Saab 900 radio code
If your radio beeps and will not turn on, such as after battery power has been disconnected, then you must enter a security code to restore its function. The car should have come with a "special card" listing the radio's code and instructions on how to restore operation, but it is common for people to buy used Saabs without getting the radio code. If you can't find the card, start with the simple stuff. Look through the owners manuals and see if it has been written in. Try any 4 or 6 digit codes that you see. To enter a code, you must turn the radio on so it beeps and hold down the DNR button (-94 models) while entering the 6 digit code. For '88- 9000 radios, turn on the radio, press the band button, and then type in the 4 digit code. The procedure for other radios may be slightly different. If you don't find the code in the owner's manuals, remove the radio from the dash using the two little prongs. With the radio out, check the outside of it for possible codes, and try any you find - you might get lucky. Write down the serial number and your car's VIN number. Call up a local Saab dealer and tell them that you need your security code. They will run a check to make sure your car or radio hasn't been stolen. If everything is OK, they will contact you with the code.Here the links of there site; http://www.saabcentral.com/index.htm
If the wrong code was entered, press and hold the "band" button until the word "code" appears then enter the correct code. (this is for the classic 900 clarion radio).
If you can remove the radio from the dash . Pop the radio out and the correct code will sometimes be written on the top or in the back of the radio.

Unfortunately with the Saab factory radios, each unit has a code unique to the unit. The sheaf of stuff included with the owners manual included a credit card sized card with the code. That said, dealers can look the codes up for owners who have lost them. Your best shot is find a dealer that's still open and talk to them. Cheers
From the factory the code was on a card in the owners manual. Often times it is also written on the radio (have to remove it from the dash.) If all else fails take down your VIN number and call a dealer, they can look it up for you.
The codes are not for the Saab but for the radio.
You need to take the radio to a dealer of that brand of radio. There is not just one brand that can be installed by Saab. a Saab dealer can help, but none of us can, because each radio has its own code. But a dealer has the tools to reset it.
Take the radio out of the dash, sometimes the code will be written on it. If not, go to a saab dealer with the part number and serial number of the radio. They can get the code for you. You will have to prove that the car is registered in your name.
sorry but there is nowhere/body to find out what the code is...the first owner could have written it in the service book but "is that too much to ask...."you will either have to replace radio or an i.c.e.dealer may bypass the code for you .
Pull the radio using the tools or bend 2 pieces of coathanger to fit the holes - push the coathanger about 2-3" in and press outwards, pull the radio out enough to read the serial number.
Have the serial number and VIN number handy and call a Saab dealer. A kind one will give you the 4-digit code over the phone. The worst dealer will charge a minimum $ to have you come in and prove ownership. My dealer, in Scottsdale AZ, did it free for me, and if the serial matches the VIN in theri database, you should be ok. This is a case where a polite, respectful request will get you service and a favor sometimes. You may also call around to other Saab dealers and find one that is helpful. Remember them when you need real service. And maybe, if they charge, go have an oil change done and ask if they would give you the code while you wait. They love that, and often will give the care a once-over and tell you what they see that needs service. Cheap diagnostics. Good Luck!
