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

2006 Saab 9-3 Aftermarket GPS Install
I installed a Garmin 1490lmt into my Saab 9-3. There was really no place to
mount it on the dash that didn't block the view out of the car or block the
Saab Information Display on the dash, so I installed it down in the little
storage compartment that would otherwise get filled with junk and change. I
think this looks much cleaner than sticking it to the dash.
How to add an Aux Input to a Saab 9-3 USING A PLUG-IN HARNESS!!!
THEY ARE BACK IN STOCK. If you want one, send an email to
email@example.com and I'll reply explaining how to buy.
Since the other method required splicing into wires or attaching to
individual pins, I decided to simplify things for people by making a
plug-in harness. The connector on the harness is identical to the factory
connector and plugs right into the auxiliary input on the back of the
radio. This makes the installation super-simple and quick.
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 93 EGR Valve cleaning 9-3 2.2 TiD 2003
5 minutes DIY to clean a stuck EGR valve on a Saab 9-3 diesel 2.2 2003,
without remove it. The car was almost dead and had shacky start. Diagnostic
came up with EGR CODES P0400, etc. Amazingly the car regained power and
normal idling back by cleaning and freeing the carbon chocked spring, hook
and the piston shaft with WD40 & Carb cleaner from outside of EGR. For long
lasting repair of course you would need to take the valve out and clean
properly from inside with some sort of cleaner,brush, etc.

2004 SAAB 9-3 blower motor constantly on fix DIY
This is a 2004 SAAB 93 Linear. The Blower motor was on "high speed" in this
car constantly. The fan was always on. Even when the key was off. The cause
was the resistor or "A/C control unit" as they called the part. Hope this
helps others who might be experiencing this problem.
