Saab 5040670 Radio Code & Decoding Service

Saab 5040670
Clarion PU-2135B

As originally fitted to :

Saab 9-3

This radio is designed to fit Saab vehicles that utilise a seperate display on the dashboard. It cannot be used in other vehicles that do not have this seperate display fitted.

Before we continue, a few Truths and Myths explained

This is quite a popular stereo to find on the net, but many are described as having codes with them which is very misleading and incorrect, as this unit does not actually require a code. If you own a late model Saab, then you may be familiar with the CARPASS that shows the "Unlock" or "PUK" code used for vehicle diagnostics and programming, and it is often this vehicle specific code number that is described when people are advertising their radio for sale. This 4 digit number is unique to the vehicle, and will not allow the radio to be used in anything other than the original car.

You will often hear the term "Married" radio, and this is because the stereo is programmed with encrypted data that will only allow it to communicate with the original vehicle and no other, and the equipment used to program the stereo and the car together is called a Tech2 programmer. The Tech2 plugs into the diagnostic socket of the car and can then be used to perform various programming routines, one of which is to allow the radio and car to communicate with each other.

But this is where it gets more confusing. At the time of writing, 99.9% of the Tech2 programmers, (and that includes virtually all of the Saab OEM diagnostic equipment) are unable to reprogram any radio that has previously been fitted, as the radios, (as far as Tech2 is concerned) are supplied and programmed as a "write once only" operation. There is an exception to this that is seldom followed, and that is the correct removal of the stereo from the original vehicle. This is not done with a cheap set of removal keys, but involves plugging in the Tech2 into the original car and wiping the memory of the radio prior to de-installation. In other words, in order to remove it from the car, it has to be de-programmed first, not simply pulled out. Correct removal is called "Divorcing" and if you find a correctly "Divorced" radio, then you will have no problems in getting someone with a Tech2 to program it into your new car. Tech2 cannot divorce a radio from any vehicle other than the original, and you will need the numbers from the CARPASS to do this. So, if you have bought a radio from Ebay or a breakers, you must have the radio reset before you can re-use it.

We can to reset this unit back into "Delivery Mode" allowing it to be reprogrammed into your new car with a Tech2, but you will need to send the unit to our workshop for this work to be carried out. Approx turnaround time is 48 hours from receipt to dispatch

Please be aware that once you have used our service to reset your stereo back into "Delivery Mode", you will still need to enlist the services of a Saab Main Dealer or Independant Specialist with a Tech2 programmer to then program the radio into your new vehicle.

This model does not have a code number
It is programmed to the car using Tech2
