Heres a video that may be more helpful, from saabaux folks
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rmu7kecYKvE&t=119s

it shows at about 1:30 removal of the plugs from the cage (if you still desire to do that)

Regards radio code...9-5's do not have a radio code...just the procedure using a Tech 2 (only) to "divorce" and "marry" the radio to the car.

If your radio is locked out you need a Tech 2 to connect it back.

FYI: Saab/Orio North America will provide radio codes for units for cars that use radio codes c900's 9000's etc. I called them up a few years ago just for a code on an 9000. I have cut and pasted info from a blog they have below:

----"1999-2005 9-5 and 1999-2002 9-3 incl 2003 9-3 Convertible
When “Radio Code” or “Radio LOCKED “is shown on the SID display the radio will need to be (Married) by
a Saab Service Center with a Tech2. No owner/user input will program the radio code. The code is now an
internal electronic hand shake between modules. This is usually caused by the battery being disconnected or
replaced. Please contact your local OSC.
This occurs because the audio system checks the validity of the theft protection information (if they are
“married”) at regular intervals. This can sometimes occur when the battery has been disconnected. If the
information is not correct a message will be displayed necessitating the radio be electronically re-Married to
the vehicle with a Tech2. Please contact your local OSC.
2006-2009 9-5
When “TheftLock, Radio Code, Radio LOCKED or No VIN“, is shown on the SID display the radio will need
to be (Married) by a Saab Service Center with a Tech2. No owner/user input will program the radio code.
The code is now an internal electronic hand shake between modules. This is usually caused by the battery
being disconnected or replaced. Please contact your local OSC.
A technician may comment that they cannot get the radio to Marry/ADD. They may also state the radio
displays "NO VIN" after adding. The "NO VIN" displayed indicates the radio is DIVORCED from the vehicle.
Program SID, during this procedure the Tech2 prompts to enter the VIN. At this point, SDAR (XM receiver)
will show Married. The Radio will now be Married to the vehicle. SID and the SDAR (XM receiver) must
be Married prior to attempting to Marry the Radio to the vehicle.
NOTE: Once the radio is Married to the vehicle it may be necessary to carry out spare parts programming
of the radio and or SID using Tech 2."
