Audio system for a 9-3 (2001) "radio locked" message has come up .. do I need to remove the radio to identify serial/model number to get unlocking code ?? in the logbook it seems the cd was replaced under warranty in 2003 (before I owned the vehicle). is this a divorce problem as well ??? the radio starts off with a good signal and volume (so presume it is not an electrical/fuse fault) but it locks after about 3 seconds .. help please ... this has happened before and I sent it off to the "local" dealer .. but they have now closed up shop ...otherwise r e a l l y great car (apart from the turbo ... but tht is another story ...) many thanks

not a lot - not technically inclined - so I usually ask a man who is !!!
Greetings JACUSTOMER, Your 2001 93 will need the "MARRIAGE?DIVORCE" program run to enable the radio to be electronically matched to the vehicle. A TECH2 scanner is needed to perform this function...No need to remove radio...Can be done in the vehicle...An independent Saab repair shop or a GM dealer will have what is needed to complete the job...Cost should be about $50.00...If I can assist further please let me know...jeffrey590
