Question about 2003 Saab 9-3

2 Answers

On Star and stereo do not work.

I had the right rear break light burn up on my 03, 93 and then I lost the use of On Star and my radio. The CD changer still operates but no power to the other two items. When the radio went out it was a slow failure, it was more of a fade out, then gone. I have been without my radio for 7-months and my kids refuse to ride with me because of my singing. Please help.

    I have the same problem in my 2003 9-3. The radio doesn't work nor does the On-star but everything else works great. I've checked most of the fuses on the drivers fuse panel...is there any other fuse boxes I should be checking? I don't have my owners manual.

    2003 9-3 Vector: Radio, Speakers, Screens/computer on top and on radio itself- all stopped working. Happened all of a sudden- everything was working fine 8 hrs earlier.

    Thanks for your help!

    hey,
    my radio/SID died a few weeks ago when i came back from a trip to france. We were ready to take off when i just couldn't put it on after starting the engine. I tought it was a good idea to 'restart' the engine and the electrical system, but nothing happened. 100km further i checked some fuses (next to the dash), but they were all ok =/
    today, i pulled ALL the fuses out, and after putting them in the same order & position, and...tadaa: the radio was back.don 't know what happened, maybe some corrosion on the contacts,...but mine's back in business =)
    hopefully this might also work with other cars!

Hi there, I had the same problem and turns out it was the amplifier from under the drivers seat that was coroted from water, good luck trying to find a used one out there I had to buy one from the dealer at 750.00$ Chances are it might be your problem.. Hope not though because it's a little pricy.

Good luck with that!

I find on some cars that the radio and one of either rear lights were linked so if you replace the fuse that might work

CD changer problem disable play or reject CD function


I sould checkyou phone book to see if there is a bussiness that repairs car radios and cd players.
Other wise you should look into a new cd player at a local electronic store that sells car radios and cd players. The last option is to go to the dealer and order another one.
