Subject: Re: Q: CD player in 85 900s?

In article <>, says... > I was wanting to put a CD player in my 85 900S, > Most CD Players will use an ISO plug connection. One plug does power, the other does speakers. They are often supplied joined together as one block. Saab C900 models from 79 onwards, and early 9000 models should use a different two plug setup (saab specific). You can buy an adaptor for a few $/ and it plugs stright between the two adapting the wiring. However, my Saab 900 T16S '85 had the original clarion Saab radio cassette. Before removing it I bought the adaptor ready to fit the new unit in. After pulling the radio I discovered that the Saab plugs weren't present (or at least not easily visible, and that the unit was connected to single wires and spade connectors for power (direct to spades on the back of the radio) and the speakers were connected via two barrel conenctors (one for front speakers, and one for rears). I ended up having to make up various connectors to fit it to the Saab adaptor to plug into the ISO plug. Not good as it can be a little tempremental. I'm sure that the Saab twin plug must be under there somewhere, but I won't fidn it until I need to remove the lower dash again, and do that while I'm under there. -- The poster formerly known as Skodapilot.
