From the factory the code was on a card in the owners manual. Often times it is also written on the radio (have to remove it from the dash.) If all else fails take down your VIN number and call a dealer, they can look it up for you.
You can't. There is no code you can change. It is a matter of an embedded code in your radio matching the one in your car's computer. If you bought a used Saab radio from a junkyard, you still have to take it to the Saab dealer to get them to change the code in your computer, so the radio will work. Nice, huh?
2003 saab 9-3. my radio and top display comes on in car now and again,when it goes of the noise of my indicators goes off,when radio is working everything is fine.could someone help me with this.many thanks
If you disconnected the battery incorrecdtly you may have blown some wireing that has then blown the speakers,if speakers are blown they sound really crackelly or dont work atall (disconnecting the battery would be taking the red wire (+) off first and incorrectly replacing the wires would be connecting the neggative first (-). its not herd off but it could be the problem??
Len- The replacement only costs about $20. The dealer can also provide a replacement but it can cost upwards of $50+. Part number is 5035944.
The hardest part is removing the metal sleeve from the mast pole. Once you get this out, refit the new mast with the teeth so the motor will pull the new mast down when you turn the radio off. refit the 17mm nut on top of the mast and then turn the radio back on. It will click a few times and then be properly set.
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.
