If your radio beeps and will not turn on, such as after battery power has
been disconnected, then you must enter a security code to restore its
function. The car should have come with a "special card" listing the
radio's code and instructions on how to restore operation, but it is common
for people to buy used Saabs without getting the radio code. If you can't
find the card, start with the simple stuff. Look through the owners
manuals and see if it has been written in. Try any 4 or 6 digit codes that
you see. To enter a code, you must turn the radio on so it beeps and hold
down the DNR button (-'87 models) while entering the 6 digit code. For
'88- 9000 radios, turn on the radio, press the band button, and then type
in the 4 digit code. The procedure for other radios may be slightly
different. If you don't find the code in the owner's manuals, remove the
radio from the dash using the two little prongs. With the radio out, check
the outside of it for possible codes, and try any you find - you might get
lucky. Write down the serial number and your car's VIN number. Call up a
local Saab dealer and tell them that you need your security code. They
will run a check to make sure your car or radio hasn't been stolen. If
everything is OK, they will contact you with the code.

If the wrong code was entered, press and hold the "band" button until the
word "code" appears then enter the correct code. (this is for the classic
900 clarion radio).
