Question about 1994 Saab 900

1 Answer

Cannot unlock the radio on my SAAB 9000 CDE

I have a Saab 9000CDE and the radio reads CODE. When the code is entered it does not unlock the radio. The red light for the security system does not blink, and the code alert is not beeping. I think it is locked. When the code is entered, the radio still does not come on. The system has worked properly until yesterday. I have owned the vehicle for 4-5 years. I have entered the code 3 consecutive times and followed the instructions in the manual and it is not working. Help, I have a 4 hr drive ahead of me in silence.

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!

1995 saab 9000 radio code. requesting code in

Not a problem

If you are the owner of the car, all you need to do is contact your SAAB dealer and by using your registration plate number, they can cross check it against a list which is open to SAAB agents and they will tell you. it works! I did it recently after having a battery changed.

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.
