Subject: Re: 9000 alarm

I just found out today that my 9000 (1989) is, in fact, equipped with a car alarm!! Imagine my embarrassment when an irate neighbor pointed this out to me. I live on a street car line in the City and the alarm being triggered by the train passing by has suddenly become a problem, when it wasn't anytime before during my two years of ownership, so I imagine something has changed. Can anyone point me to some instructions about how to adjust the motion sensitivity, disconnect the speaker, remove the fuse, or otherwise disable the alarm? My Haynes manual only says not much is known about the alarm system, and I've never had the Saab owner's manual. Theories so far run to the motion sensitivity being changed inadvertantly (if I could find the controls, I would make the adjustment), or an electrical short (which, of course, would need to be fixed), or the fact that I recently replaced a blown fuse for the Central Locking System. For the time being, I have removed that fuse, in the hopes that the alarm won't arm. I am hoping to do something about this myself if I can, before resorting to a professional. In the meantime, my ears are peeled as a listen for the nuisance in the neighborhood: me. K McQuesten, SF Steven Nordberg wrote: > I have an '89 9000 CD Turbo with factory alarm.
