A bit of interference on a 2007 9.5
« on: 18 December 2017, 04:10:22 PM »
A bit of help is required please.
Got a 2007 9.5 which has what I thought was a faulty radio - much crackling and hissing when switched. Managed to get a second hand unit which when plugged in, did the same :-(
Being a numpty with such things, can anyone out there in SAAB land offer a suggestion as to what is causing all the static. It also happens when the CD is playing. Ta very much, a bemused 9.5 owner

Amplifier or cable, or earth.  It's behind the trim in front of the driver's door by your shin.

Got a replacement amp, thanks to assistance from SGould and Si aka Saabotage. Just need some dry weather to fit it, so probably around mid-June :-)

Update: All fitted and working again. A pleasant surprise is that it sounds clearer than before.
