Turn the key to turn the accessories on. When the radio reads "CODE" or "CODE IN" you enter it. Wait a few seconds and it will start right up.

How to enter the radio code in 1995 saab 900s.


When you start the car the display should ask you for the code....Code In.....you should be able to simply enter the code and the radio should come back on. If 'Code In' does not display when you turn on the radio press and hold the 'band' button and 'code in' should come up on the screen.....let me know if that helps....if not I will go out and re-do mine on my 1997 Saab 900S to double check.....good luck

Unlock radio code


Assuming that you have the original Clarion radio, the code should have been provided by the original owner. If not, you might be able to get it from a Saab dealer by way of the VIN lookup.
Assuming you have the correct code (of four digits I believe), the entry drill is as follows:
  1. turn on the ignition,
  2. depress the radio power switch once,
  3. depress the DNR switch and keep it depressed throughout the rest of the procedure,
  4. key in your code number using the station preset keys (1 through 6)
  5. after last digit is entered, release the DNR switch and unit should operate
If you make an error entering the digits, simply release the DNT switch re-press it and start entering the digits from the beginning.

The battery on my 1996 Saab 900 died one day and when I replaced it with a new battery the radio was no longer working. Any ideas? Thanks, Joe G


There is a 4 digit code that you must enter to get the radio working again. You should have a plastic credit card sized card with the 4 digit code printed on it; if you don't have this card and the number is not written down anywhere on the owner's manual then the number should be on the back of the radio itself. When you turn on the radio the info screen should ask you to enter a code.....if you can't find the code in any of the places I listed I believe you can get it from the dealer. Hope this helps!

Cannot unlock the radio on my SAAB 9000 CDE


I have a Saab 900 -97 with a similar problem. I just solved it yesterday on my car. Hold the Band button in for like 10-15 sec when you see "Code In", It clears the error log in the radio. If it doen´t work, enter a wrong code so the code hangs on the display and then press the band button to clear the error log. It worked on my car, good luck!

I changed the battery on my 1997 Saab 900. Radio is dead.


turn on the radio and enter the code. If it does not respond, hold the band button down until the screen asks for it. If that does not work, pull the radio and courtesy fuses for 5 minutes and retry.

Where do you find the radio code 1994 saab 900


Upon disconnecting the battery the radio will flash code until you enter the code. If you enter the code incorrectly you must either hold the band button down until the word code reappears or leave the key on for one hour until the word code reappears. This procedure depends on the year of the car. If you do not have the radio code and would like to get it you must call your local Saab dealer with the serial number off the top of the radio. Many times radio owners will write the radio code on top of the radio once you have the correct code. Typically the radio code is in the owners pouch and is a small card with the numbers on it.

NOTE: If this helps you, please, please give me a good rating!!

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;

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.

Saab 900i 1992 model


I had a similar problem with my 94 Saab 900, I needed to reset the radio code because the one in my user manual was wrong. If you can remove the radio from the dash (you can buy a tool or make it with metal clothes hangers). Pop the radio out and the correct code will sometimes be written on the top of the radio.

Either way entering this correct code did nothing for me on startup. But the solution is far out - turn the ignition key to "on" without starting the engine so the electrical system is on. Then leave this for 1 hour. When you return the HID will display "enter code" (exactly like if you hold down the BAND button - but that doesn't work like this does). Now enter the correct code.
