Saab 9-5 SID Swap
The importance of getting the correct SID in your 9-5. Not all SID's speak
the same "language". Saab used the same SID's for model years '98-'01, one
SID for all '02's, one for all '03's, and one updated unit for all '04-'05
Are you afraid of the SAAB?
This video is really old, we've got the girl racin! Here's footage from
From www.thecarbeque.com We've worked out all the major problems with our
$400 SAAB, installed a set of EBC race brakes, put on the race Exhaust and the next step will be all the safety
equipment. We will be going to Alston Race Cars in Antioch to get the snow
leopard (our internal codename for the carbeque) measured for the roll
cage. They do amazing work. In the meantime we will begin to devise our
cooker box that'll turn the 900 into a real Carbeque. Until then, enjoy!

theSAABguy Repairs: 2002 SAAB 9-5 Blower Motor or Fan Speed Controller
In this video I replace a Fan Speed Controller on a 2002 SAAB 9-5. I began
the job believing it could just be the blower motor (which is easier), but
after plugging in the good blower motor I diagnosed the Fan Speed
Controller to be the true culprit. Here is a link of the part which needed
to be replaced: http://www.eeuroparts.com/Main/PartDetail.aspx?id=4869319.
You can follow the directions as seen in this video for both the blower
motor and fan speed controller. However I don't show what I did under the
dash which was the trickiest part.
Enjoy your SAAB.
How to Add an AUX Input to a Saab 9-3
This video shows how to add an AUX input jack to a 2003 or newer Saab 9-3.
Before doing this you might want to look in your center armrest and see if
there's one there already. I had one, I just didn't know it. Oh well... I
like the location of this one better anyway. My car is a 2006. I don't know
what year Saab started adding the AUX input in the armrest, but some of the
earlier cars didn't have them.
Anyway, now I have TWO AUX inputs! :-)
If your car is a 2003 through 2005, go here to see how to connect the wires
directly to the pins on the back of the stereo:
