1992 SAAB 900. Clarion radio. After repairs to the ignition system I wanted to get the Clarion radio working again. I ''typed in'' my ''secret code''. The number 1112 appeared in the display, but nothing else happened. No sound, no antenna, no noise, nothing. Can you help?

Many of those radios had a secret code which could only be had thru the dealership. So- you had to take it to the dealer who pulled the radio and got one number then that would get you the secret code which you then wrote on the housing of the radio so you don't have to go thru this. Good luck with that.I just love classic foreign cars.
Or you could have a blown fuse. Under the hood drivers side.
any radio that is the same size will fit you can buy adapters at most radio shops best buy future shop adaptor uses vehicle wiring and connects to radio find a radio you like then ask for the adaptor to fit
hope this will help you hope you find a radio you like plz vote or comment reply if you need more help
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:
turn on the ignition,
depress the radio power switch once,
depress the DNR switch and keep it depressed throughout the rest of the procedure,
key in your code number using the station preset keys (1 through 6)
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.
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.
