Subject: Re: Clarion amp for 1993 Saab 900T stereo - part number is 40-83-051

> > > Thanks for the quick reply!! I sent a parts request to Goldwing, The Saab Site ( and a couple of other sites last night. I forgot about English-Swedish. Just sent them an enquiry this morning. We'll see what turns up. >If you are not afraid of splicing wires, just about any 2 channel amp should >work in place of the Saab unit. The best thing would be to make sure that it >fits under the ABS module, though. If I can't find stock, I'll probably use an amp I already have lying around, but I don't have a wiring diagram. Any clue how I could figure out the wiring of the input and output wires on this puppy? I'd hate to hook up the power line to a speaker input. I may also just replace the whole system. I have a decent Kenwood cassette/radio head unit, and they also make a single DIN CD slave unit (kinda like a one-disc "changer") that works with any of their changer-control head units. So basically with these two Kenwood pieces I would have what I have now - a tape/radio head unit in the top slot and a single CD player in the other DIN space. No EQ, but that's no biggie. I'm just a little attached to the stock stuff for no good reason. >There are a few c900's here locally >(Cowlumbus, OH) in junk yards to get the knick knack stuff. Depending on >where you are, you may want to check around. Look for a pull your own yard, >though these are vanishing. Anyone know of any pull-your-own places in the New York City vicinity that may have Saabs? >The amp is common to '92 and '93 on the C900 and >may also be common to the 9k, but I do not know. Yeah, I did see one other guy looking for one of these for a 9000 a while back (on, from a Google search). But I wouldn't know where to look for it on the 9K even if I found one in a yard. Do you think it's under the seat or buried in the dash somewhere? >Does the '93 have a >passenger side heater switch (temp regulated 3 position)? My '92 does not >nor is there any place in the dash for it. According to the Bentley, it >should be an automatic seat with a pressure switch and the old style thermo >switch. The ones with a seat heater switch for the passenger side have a >hole in the dash opposite the driver side one. I have seen a few European >ones with this. If you do need this controller, they are the same in the >9k's as well. No just the driver's side switch. I found it new at the Saab site: But it's $90! I'm not even sure mine is bad. It just crackles a lot when I switch it and I never feel the heater coming on. So I figured if I could find a good used one, I could swap it out and see if it starts working. At this point, I won't even be able to test it again for several months so maybe I won't worry about it. Surf to and look at the links. Great source of >info. Yep, rocks! Anyway, thanks again for the reply. I'll check out those other sites too. Thanks, Chris
