It will fit in the 9-5 for transportation purposes only. You will not be able to conenct it to the existing factory system and use it. > My concern is whether my console can talk to the changer.

The factory head unit expects the CD changer to be connected to one of the two CAN busses in the 9-5, the I-BUS. Furthermore it has, due to theft issues, to be married to the car using the TECH-2 diagnostics computer. > The Clarion uses something called > a "C-bus" -- anybody have any ideas how I could find out if this will > work with my car? > http://www.soundlabsgroup.com.au/canbus/can_interface.htm says the 9-5 > supports the CANBUS, aka C-bus. The Clarion C-bus is a proprietary bus used by Clarion for communications between Clarion head units and Clarion CD changers. It is not a CAN bus and it will not work with the factory Pioneer head unit in the 9-5. > But other sites imply only the 900 and > maybe the 9-3 can use the Clarion. The Clarion changer will work in the new generation Saab 900 with the factory Clarion head unit. It wil not work in the Saab 9-3 (old generation) as it uses the same CD changer as the 9-5. The only CD changer that will work in the Saab 9-3 and Saab 9-5 (without navigation system) is the Pioneer unit made specially for Saab.
