We know. There is one little annoying thing with our lovely SAAB. There is no aux-in connection. Are you're feed up with FM-transmitters and copying CDs and just wants an easy to use and flexible solution to stream music through the car's speakers now?

CdConnect is a retrofit aux kit for Saab 9-5 and Saab 9-3. Easy to use and works with all music players that have a standard 3.5 mm jack.

You deserve high audio quality at the music of your choice! You deserve CdConnect!

  • Plug and play installation. No soldering, no cutting of cables!
  • Doesn’t require activation through Tech2. Just press the Cd-button twice to activate!
  • Designed to ensure the best possible sound quality.
  • High quality. Automated production in Sweden with high precision placement of components on circuit board.

Original & authentic feeling

There will be no visible changes to your stereo. Install the CdConnect with a button (now included!) and you will believe it was factory mounted with just a small audio inlet in the mid-console! Removal tool and a 3.5 mm audio cable to connect between the blank-button outlet and your phone (or other audio source) are also included.

Compatible models and stereos

The aux-adapter is compatible with the following models:

  • 9-3 – year 1998-2002 for AS1-AS2-AS3 (Also, 9-3 CAB 2003)
  • 9-5 – year 1998-2005 for AS1-AS2-AS3
  • 9-5 – year 2005-2009 for Denso navigation. All required cable harness is included when selecting this.

Make sure to select the right CdConnect for your needs in the options!

If you have the SAAB 9-3, 2003-2006, have a look on the aux cable!



Installation trickReview by John
As you will be able to have the stereo on without ignition, I was initially a bit disappointed as CdConncet requires ignition. But, I went in and got some clamping lugs and took the current from the amplifier cable (which is available in my 9-3 on the right side inside the panel). I measured the power consumption and it was 15mA in standby and that shouldn’t become any problem. The level is too low, which is noticed when shifting between AUX and radio. (Posted on 11/18/2013)
Fantastic!Review by Thomas
Works really well. I feel it that cd/radio gives slightly better audio-quality. May be like that! But I am completely satisfied anyhow! //Thomas (Posted on 10/22/2013)
Good sound!Review by Thomas
Product wise a totally fantastic solution. The installation took less than 10 minutes and the sound is really good. However (according to me), a very long delivery time and a formulation of the cancellation policy which isn’t in line with the Swedish law. (Posted on 9/18/2013)
Easy insallationReview by Markus Olsson
Couldn’t be any simpler to install for cars with Denso Navigator. No safety cage removal, just remove the headunit, connect the harnes and aux-box. Put the headunit back and you are live! Estimated installationtime, 15 minutes including coffee break! (Posted on 8/30/2013)
Really good sound quality!Review by Mats
Everything fitted as it was original, sound is a bit low (which is mentioned in the FAQ), but it is really great. Or I just have a very good phone to play from. It took around 5 minutes to install everything. One thing worthy to note, which is in the FAQ, is that you should press the CD-button twice in order to get aux and that the CD player still works, which I didn’t believe when I ordered. :) (Posted on 7/3/2013)
Fast delivery and really satisfiedReview by Anders
Works well on og9-5. A bit low max sound(just tested 1 unit this far) but possible to solve with EQ. It took closer for two hours to install as it was nearly impossible to get the red connector in place (there were no teeth as in the FAQ). Finally, I took some glue which worked well. After that it was just to put the stereo back in, and yes, I’m really satisfied. Fast delivery as well! (Posted on 2/23/2013)
Well working product and awesome service!Review by PatrikS
When I first got my CdConnect delivered there was a cable which was disconnected from a connector in the harness. Email the support and got a reply directly (after business hours), they would send me a new harness immediately. This was delivered 3-4 days after (due to weekend). Everything was mounted on max 10 minutes. But… I faced another problem, I had ordered a 3.5 mm cable (no name) which got the music to sound as it was produced in a bathroom. I once again emailed the support who said they would send me a new cable. Roughly 7 days later it came with the mail, of a well kown brand and the music is transferred correctly. Peeerfect!

To summarize, it is a nice and smart product for your SAAB in order to get an AUX-in connection. The help I got due to the problems was of first class. Awesome good attitude, you really cherish about your customers ! Thank you ! :) (Posted on 9/21/2012)
Recommended by beginners!Review by Jonas
I have no experience of tampering with cars, and it took me 1.5 hours rather than 20min but even I have managed to get it to work perfectly , and it was neat! One must draw a bit more metal and cut plastic ( 9-5 ) than you're used to but it's worth it! Thank you ! (Posted on 8/22/2012)
CdConnectReview by PeterH
Works great, easy to hook in. Push 2 times at the Cd-button and I’ve got Spotify in my old car. (Posted on 8/15/2012)
Brilliant!Review by Andreas.J
Can definitely recommend this. I’m not a handy man but I’ve got it working on less than 30 minutes. Og 9-5 with the large stereo. Brilliant sound! (Posted on 8/7/2012)
Really pleased!Review by Markus
Couldn’t be more satisfied with this product. Pure sound and surprisingly easy to install (9-5). Highly recommended! (Posted on 7/27/2012)
20 minutes!Review by Nicklas
Sickly satisfied. After about 20 minutes of work its done. High-fidelity sound and with the blank-button it looks original. If you would like to have AUX in your SAAB this is the absolutely most superior alterantive. (Posted on 7/26/2012)
Super!Review by Sara Jansson
Super good thing. Thumbs up. Good sound. It’s a bit of a shame that the red connect doesn’t fit 100 in the cage. Had to spend some time on it before I got it there. (Posted on 7/14/2012)
GoodReview by Robert
Works like a clockwork. Fast and easy to install. Highly recommend this product! A pitty I got the wrong color on the button, got a grey one and the others are black… (Posted on 6/2/2012)
Super good.Review by Peter Blom
Got my CdConnect a while ago, it took only 10 minutes to get it up and running. I have changed the power connection to the box. Originally, it takes power from the cigarette lighter socket, I now take it from the stereo, and have a relay to control the power who is controlled by the electric antenna. So, now, whenever you start the stereo, the CdConnect does also start. No need for ignition. A so amazingly good product. (Posted on 5/3/2012)

Delivers great sound with a quick and easy installation. There’s nothing to complain about. (Posted on 4/25/2012)
Good stuff!Review by Oscar
Very good! There’s nothing to complain about really. If you would like to have AUX in the SAAB then this option is great. (Posted on 4/23/2012)
CD Connect 9-5Review by Simon Strand
Works just fine. Pleased. No problem to install yourself if you’ve got the tool to remove the stereo and sid-units. However, when you turn of the ignition, the power to the 12-v outlet will also be cut as well as for the CdConnect-box and the stereo shifts to radio (which is on until the key is removed).
