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: http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21434
Fatal high speed police chase - Unmarked SAAB 9-5 Aero vs Kawasaki ZX-10R *Translated*
***EDIT This video doesn´t show the crash! At 47:57 the chopper report the bike has wrecked. There is no pics of the bike after the crash in this video. Subtitles is only availible first 20 minutes.
This guy did only have license to drive cars, caught riding a bike can result in a 6 month ban. Speeding at 81 km/h over the limit (and more) will revoke your license for 8 month. Bottom line, many riders going fast on 1000cc sportbikes will run. Choppers are used rarely to catch speeders***
A Kawasaki ZX-10R fly by an unmarked SAAB. The biker has no mirrors and ain´t aware of he is being followed by the police.
At 14.30 the bike starts to pick up the pace.
At 17.10 he looks back and guns it. Soon he is gone and this unit doesn´t have the bike insight again. Although the bike is far away this unit continues to chase him for 30 minutes. More than 20 unites including a chopper were involved in this chase.
A heating debate started in Sweden if police acting appropriate due to the fact this was only a traffic violation. The biker died in the end when he slammed into a road barrier, the passenger didn´t suffer any injuries. The rider was just a regular chap going out for a ride on his ZX-10R equipped with a Racefit Growler
Nothing happens in the last 20 minutes, just radio traffic
Saab 9-5 SID LCD Display Repair
My repair of a Saab SID display, which had lost pixels on the LCD screen. Ultimately, I discovered the ribbon cable had deteriorated beyond repair, and I purchased a replacement ribbon cable. A $400 unit was fixed for a little more than $40.
2006 Saab 9-3 SID and Audio System
This Saab has the 1st generation dashboard. It has the Saab Information Display (SID) on top of the dashboard. The radio has a different interface and the HVAC controls are full of buttons. I demonstrate some unique features such as Traffic Program, Automatic Station tuning mode, and how to use the control knob for the trip computer.
Saab 9-3 start without key
Some sort of "glitch" in the Saab 9-3 2002-2011 makes it possible to start the car without the key. And thanks to it's chunky key fob you can fit your thumb in the ignition switch and start the car.

2003 saab 9-3 radio
I got the car about a week ago and the radio doesnt turn on i dont know why but i saw online that it could be because of the amp 1 the one under the driver seat and the turn signal doesnt make any noise. I took the amp out and opened it just to see if anything was wrong with it but i dont really know much about those things so from what i saw it looked fine to me. If anyone knows what i can do please leave a comment and share this video if you know anyone that has the same problem if i can get it all fixed up ill post other video showing how i did it.

Crash Test 2003 - 2009 Saab 9-3 (Frontal Offset Test) IIHS
2009 Top Safety Pick 2009 Saab 9-3 (4-door sedan and wagon models): good performance in front, side, and rear tests and standard electronic stability control
FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Good
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Good Good Good Good Good Good
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
The Saab 9-3 was redesigned for the 2003 model year.
The frontal offset crash test ratings also apply to the station wagon version of the 9-3, known as the SportCombi, beginning with its introduction in the 2006 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. The side curtain airbags deployed, as intended by Saab (even for frontal impacts). After the dummy moved forward into the frontal airbag, its head brushed the side airbag and its fabric cover. The dummy continued to rebound into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Well it's not often I see a Saab at the shop but this one showed up with a broken passenger window that came off of it's track. The fix was surprisingly affordable with this one and fairly easy to do with a little time and effort. Enjoy.
