Hi all,

are there any specialists that look after Saab audio systems, especially in the pre facelift 2003 -2006 9-3ss?

Before I start trawling the net for diagnosis and instructions on how to pull my car to pieces, I'd prefer someone who knows what to look for to check it over, but I don't know if that is simply taking the car to a general Saab specialist, or if it would need to be an audio specialist?

If the radio and/or some of the speakers have stopped working, can that be diagnosed with Tech2? My radio seems to have stopped working, but the CD still plays through the dash and front door speakers only. There was no warning, no crackling over time etc, so was not expecting any audio problems.

The Parrot Bluetooth phone kit I have in the car is also affected - no sound, and the indicators no longer make any sound.......

Now here's a funny thing. I have not been in the Aero since Friday when the radio wouldn't work at all.

Just nipped out to the car to have another play with the controls in case something was set incorrectly. Put the ignition on, switched the radio on, and it came on - albeit on the right hand speakers only, but all three right hand speakers (dash, door, parcel shelf) were working, but nothing out of the centre dash speaker, and nothing from any of the left hand speakers.

Managed to adjust the balance, and then all speakers fired into life as if nothing had ever been wrong.......CD plays well, sounds good, and radio works well on all speakers.

What is going on? :o :o :-\

Haven't used the car today but it was sat in the rain on the drive, so just checked those carpets. No sign of damp, so I turned the ignition on and..... no radio, CD working on dash and door speakers only, and indicators silent.....

Is the rain/damp/amp-under-the-seat all a red herring?

If the amp under the passenger seat is a problem, it will probably be rusty. It's quite a small unit.
