It might be possible to divorce a CD changer if the VIN of the car it is married to is known, by temporarily programming that VIN in a different car, divorcing the CD changer, programming the real VIN and marrying the CD changer. This is not a simple task and most service technicans will probably not be able to do it without messing up the other devices that are also married to the car. > Seems like a > bit of overkill though. Why? If the protection could be bypassed then the protection would be useless. The idea is to have a protection so good that the words spread amongst the thieves are that the "Saab stuff is worthless if stolen", not that "the Saab protection can be bypassed by using a paper clip". This is the result of having thieves outside of the prison walls. I don't see this as your problem. You bought the car with the CD changer so the dealer should marry it to the car if possible, or replace it with a CD changer that can be married, without any cost to you. -- G–ran Larsson http://www.nospam.com/saab/
