  1. Remove driver's seat.
  2. Unhook wiring harness to amp.
  3. Remove amp.
  4. Examine for obvious problems - bad connections, water damage, etc. Repair if possible.
  5. If unfixable, get used one from auto parts recycling (junk) yard - make sure you take all the tools with you that you used to take out seat and amp in your car.
  6. Install used amp and mate it to the radio.

SOURCE: I have a 2003 Saab

You may already know but in case you are not original owner. There was a recall of Saab 2003 9-3 keys (in 2004 I believe). They replaced keys because of this problem.

SOURCE: No heat on the drivers side

Hi,

I have the same problem with my 1999 Saab 95 SE. I have done some intensive research on the repair and I have come across a few websites with solutions and they ultimately point to the same one. Your HeaterBox blend door or stop arm is broken it diverts the heat to both sides of the compartment. I had a quick free fix from my dealer from them by setting my temp to HI on both sides. But that did not fix the original problem of having cold air blow on the drivers side no matter which selection your choose to have the air blow, may it be on the windshield, panel or floor, it still came out cold. It is fine on the passengers side, but the tech at the Saab dealership instructed me not to adjust the temperature settings on either side or it might break completely, I think their just trying to tack on $2000 dollars of repairs for something I can fix for $100-$200 or even less than that. You should be able to get the job done in 2-3 hours providing nothing else is broken besides the blend door arm and/or stop arm in your heaterbox. Here is the link I found that will help you fix the problem. Hope it helps and keeps you warm, just be glad you have heated seats for now, without it I think I'd freeze to death in this Michigan weather, lol.

Illustrated Fix


Good Luck and Best Regards,

SOURCE: key thob has stopped working, I have changed the

Saab's have very specific steps that you must follow when you change the batteries in your key fob. You might try these steps to re-sync your key fob to your security system....

If the battery has been changed outside the
car and the car is locked, proceed as follows:
1 Unlock the front left door with the traditional
key. If the car has a car alarm, this
will be tripped.
2 Open the door and insert the remote
control into the ignition switch. If the car
has a car alarm, this will be silenced.
The remote control and receiver unit are
now synchronized.

you may have ruined your alarm computer wich is under seat. it can be replaced with a good used unit but a shop with Tech2 must program it. If no communication with computer m ore than likely bad.

2004 saab linear radio lights up but no sound


Do any of the system sounds in your vehicle work - e.g warning gong, direction indicator noise - if they don't then there may be a problem with the amplifier (located under front seat on left hand side of vehicle). The whole system works on fibre optic communication between the head unit and the amp. This could be an expensive job if the amp has blown (it can be vulnerable to damp under the seat - what were SAAB thinking of when positioning it here ?

If the CD doesn't play either - does it eject and load OK though ? this could point to a fuse or relay failure rather than the amp. Check the relevant fuses/ relays in the car - refer to owner's manual for the relevant locations.
