It shouldn't affect the display, but is your radio aerial connected? The saloon uses the heated rear window via an aerial amp behind the RH rear pillar and an earth filter behind the RH rear pillar. The estate uses the brown lines in the rear side windows. Always the RH one, sometimes the LH one as well, also via an aerial amp in the roof. The estate windows are connected by a kind of press stud. Mine fell off.

Running the WIS is going to be a challenge for me, I have no Windooz licence and do not really want to invest in one, need to look further in to it. Will try to open it and set it up today using the Mac Application Wine (https://www.winehq.org). Will report if it works.

mm, sgould, I would like to not get Windooz licence. To costly. I need to ask around if anybody has an old laptop they donate with it on.

I tried running it with 'Wine' but that does hang on installation. must be components missing.

Saab 9.5/2004 - Navigation/Radio system display screen confused and can not set it up.




OK I discovered more. Via the Saab Club NL I found the following info. It is, apparently, a known problem and seems to be a software fault.

If you disconnect the Battery it happens. You can no longer set the clock and there is a stripe through the GPS symbol. However the Navigation still works so there seems to be a GPS signal.

It is a software bug in all Denso units from 2005 till 2010. US Cadillac’s apparently have it too and apparently the Corvette C6 has it too. According to the poster is GM working on it.

If I find out more I post.
