    Hi, I'm new to this forum. We are about to buy a 1997 Saab 900 2.3 manual and were told that the radio needs the security code because when he changed the battery, the radio reset itself. The owners manual and the card that had the code on it aren't in the car, and the sellers don't have it. I was wondering if you could help us figure out the code.

    Hi. I've got a 98 Saab 9-5 that I had to disconnect the battery from due to the theft alarm constantly going randomly off. And because of this, the radio code "error" keeps popping up every time I'm using the car and therefore I am not able to listen to radio, etc. I was wondering if you could get me a code if I provide you the information that you need?

    Sadly Saab is no more and "ORIO" has messed everything up - I am awaiting a new log on account via work so I can SPS get radio codes and program things. Amazing how a Saab service center can be so relaxed about such an important thing.... I can do everything but get radio codes on my own at home, but I can't at work lol

    Bonjour Jean-Francis, I added your post to the existing thread as it will have a better chance to be seen by others with the same problem.

    Good afternoon guys.
    Are you still able to do this, Burnside? If so I would appreciate a radio code as mine has just blanked off after a starter motor change.
    Many thanks
    Chris

    Hello all,
    I, too, have the RADIO CODE issue in my 2003 9-5. This is the 2nd time. I have a picture of the top of my radio, and have taken this in to have the code read for $100, but now it is $150. I would love to know how I, without a Tech II, can reset my radio code. She is a 2003 and her owner's manual was stolen from the glove compartment, years ago. I am the only owner she has had, but I would love to be able to fix this when it pops up. If you can help me out, please leave a message here. Thank you in advance,
    Lynda Bass

    With the possible exception of some early cars the Saab 9-5 radio DOES NOT HAVE A CODE! Security is achieved by "marrying" the radio to the car's electronics using Tech 2. If you get a message Radio Code you need to get a Tech 2 connected and have the radio "re-married" to the system. Given that the majority of 9-5s have a Radio/Cassette/CD head unit replacing this with a modern head unit is likely to provide greater functionality and reliability, but will lose the ability to have the radio remain on with the key at "Off".

    The choice is, obviously, yours but I felt the advantages of an up to date head unit outweighed the disadvantages of losing the steering wheel controls. If the relationship between the head unit and DICE/TWICE breaks down there is a possibility that there is a fault in the head unit, getting these repaired is difficult because of their age.
