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! A 3.5 mm audio cable to connect between the blank-button outlet and your phone (or other audio source) are also included.

Connect your music player through cable or Bluetooth

CdConnect SAAB is available in two versions, cable or bluetooth. The bluetooth product has a built-in amplifier which gives increased volume compared to the cable version. Furthermore, the Bluetooth version is compatible with the stereo and steering wheel buttons, meaning that you can shift tune on your phone from the steering wheel! The bluetooth product is a refined product taking the customer feedback received during the last two years into account, and as such, we highly recommended it.

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!


CdConnect SAAB is CE certified and meets high product safety standards

CdConnect is CE-certified. This means that the product meets the requirements of relevant directives and has undergone the prescribed procedure for verifying compliance with the requirements (i.e. test performed by external institutes).

  • Electromagnetic compatibility according to EN61000-1, EN61000-2, EN61000-6-3, EN61000-6-4. This means, in short that the product works in the car without behaving strangely or affecting other equipment with respect to the electromagnetic energy that the product is exposed to or create.

Declaration of conformity.


Awesome Upgrade!Review by Daven
I ordered one for my '04 9-5 wagon and it arrived 4 days later!...FROM SWEDEN to the USA! Installation took less than 30 minutes and was extremely straightforward and intuitive. It looks completely stock and the sound quality is absolutely perfect! This is by far one of the easiest and best upgrades I've made to any of my SAABs...and I've had 11. I am so glad this product exists. I will be buying one for my '02 9-3 Viggen for sure! (Posted on 11/18/2015)
My 1998 SAAB 9-3SE just got Spotified!Review by Niklas
Armed with a flashlight I went out into the chilly Stockholm night
and installed the CdConnect in our car. I am by no means a mechanic,
but still the installation went fine and I was rewarded by music from my
iPhone in the car sound system.
One or two details in the installation instruction could be improved, but
overall I am very happy with the product.

Superior Review by BryanG
10 min install on 9-3 with onstar. Disconnected the onstar plug, put the provided aux port in its place, swapped a few connectors around and boom. $168.00 very, very well spent. Thanks for such a wonderful product. Kept me from hacking around on the factory radio or replacing and rewiring speakers. Kept my 6 speakers, wonderful sound. Buy it now! (Posted on 10/6/2015)
Works as promisedReview by Raphael
Took my 15 minutes instead of 3 as in the instruction video, but then I was able to listen to my music from the iPhone. Also: Stereo removal keys and some candies were included, yay. (Posted on 8/16/2015)
Excellent ProductReview by Rod
Could not be happier. This is exactly what I was looking for. Shipping was four days from Sweden to my doorstep in Maryland, USA. Works like a charm after a simple install in my 2002 Viggen. Thank you. Had to wait several years for this! (Posted on 5/8/2015)
Very good quality adapterReview by Mikael
Spending a lot of time in my 9-5 I had been looking for a good adaptor to use since the sound in the factory system was good so wanted to keep it. This adaptor was very easy to install and the sound quality is perfect. The installation result could not be better. Looks like something straight out of the factory. Very highly recommend getting this and now that I have tested it will be getting another for my other 9-5. (Posted on 5/6/2015)
Fast, Easy, Clean & A Factory LookReview by dhbolthausen
The price may be a little high, but I have to say there could be nothing easier. Remove a button, pull a few pieces, plug in the unity, put everything back and you have a very factory looking auxiliary connection that works fine. I will have to pull the cd changer - but the plugging in of auxiliary devices pretty much makes that a mute point. Great Job! (Posted on 4/15/2015)
Very easy Installation. Great instructions.Review by Greg
For somwone who has limited technical ability I had this installed and operating within 10 minutes. Sounds great. (Posted on 4/15/2015)
An awesome alternative!Review by Jarrett
Due to the lack of reviews on this great product, I must give my input! First off, I'm from the Eastern part of the United States. When I ordered this, it shipped out next day. It was here in an astonishing 3 days! I was stunned, because I've read people online waiting several weeks. After using the product for several days in my Viggen, I'm happy to report that I love it! I dislike the look of aftermarket stereo systems because I personally don't think they flow with the car's design/style. But this does flow, it seriously looks like it came factory. The sound is amazing most importantly. If you're playing back a decent to high quality music file, you'll be hard pressed to tell the difference between it and a CD. The installation is very easy too. There is a couple of videos around the internet that will walk you through as well. My only complaints about this is that "night panel" will disable everything it normally does besides SID. SID recognizes a change that is ongoing or something. Therefore, it stays lit. Also, the price is kind of steep. When I bought it, the currency transverse rate came to $165.00 USD. It's not a deal breaker for me, but I thought it was a tad pricey. Overall though, I recommend it if you share the same opinion as me not liking aftermarket head units, or wanting an easier, convenient way out of wiring everything together. That there is worth the extra money. (Posted on 4/14/2015)

Awesome addition to my 1999 9-3 convertible Review by GeirBear
Every now and then you find a product that lives up to the advertising and hype! This one exceeds everything you could imagine. The ease of the installation and the instructional video on the companies website made this the easiest modification I've ever done.
If you are hesitating over the cost of some wiring and clips! Don't!! The fact that I can now play my iPhone, iPad and iPod directly through the factory stereo is worth every penny!
Don't settle for radio transmitters that sound awful and fade in and out. Finished installation looks factory! Don't hestat to contact Rubenson Industri AB through their contact page, they are quick and responsive. I highly recommend this company and this product. (Posted on 4/2/2015)
