    I bought the saab used and it came with a card from the radio manufacturer with the security code printe on it. I tried using this code on and off for weeks but it didnt work. I bought a radio puller for $4 and pulled the radio. Another code was printed on the radio by someone who had obviously gone through this previously. The code on the card was wrong.

    Every radio has a unique code, the dealer is the only one that can likely help you, but you may have to pull the radio to get the serial number off it.

The code may be written on the inside of the radio (which defeats the purpose, I know), and that was the case with my 1995 900 SE. You can remove the radio yourself, as I did. It requires inserting two "keys" into the holes and gently pulling on the unit. I devised the key by cutting a thick-wired coat-hanger into two lengths of 5 inches each. Then bent each one such that it coulb inserted into the holes. Lastly, you need to crimp the ends vertically. Once inserted, push gently on the key and you will feel the latch spring separate, allowing the radio to be removed.

With any luck, someone will already written the code on the radio. It was on mine.

I bougth my 1995 saab se and I have no radio I heard the code is on the radio is that true can you tell me. the nearest dealership is san luis Ovispo and I live in Wasco ca 2;30 minutes .

The code is not on the radio, but the radio serial number is and that is what you will need to get the code for your radio. Just call the saab dealership in your area and ask for the parts department. Tell them that you need the radio code and give them the serial number of your radio. They can look up the code for your radio using that number and give it to you. I had the same problem and the parts department gave me my radio code at no charge.

Radio reset code

Look inside your owners manual for a card that says Radio Code.When you find it, Turn on Radio, Code will be in display, Type in your 4 digit code in using your radio preset buttons.Your radio should just come on. If you dont have the code then you will need to remove the radio and take the radio to the dealer where they will take the serial number off the radio and then retrieve the code for you....

Hope that helps

I needed the code when I purchased a used '95 900-s -
I learned that a Saab dealer can ID the historical record of your cars
radio code and input it for you or provide you with the code for use
should the problem again arise. / jimmy
