    Radio Locked?

    Disconnected the battery on my 2008 9-3 2.0 and now the radio display shows "Locked". Any suggestions?

    I think there's some radio code. Very short disconnects won't do it, at least when I disconnected the battery to change it.

    Bummer. Not just a Saab problem, sometimes when batteries are disconnected things that are supposed to remember forget. Saab problem is getting security access so you can add the radio back to the car.

    If your Halifax is in the US or Canada any GM dealer should be able to reattach your radio. Halifax England and you are looking for someone with a Tech 2 or a Saab service location.
