C900 Keyless Locks
Step 2 - Wiring it up


First wire up the drivers door actuator. Since you only need 2 of the 3 wires, it is your choice how to connect the actuator to the wires.

I just removed the plug on the actuator and plugged the wires into the 3 prong plug and taped it up. Be sure to match up the color of the wires!

Now wire up the CrimeStopper. SAAB uses a ground trigger system with the relay pack, but I chose to eliminate the relay pack and only use the CrimeStopper computer.

The CrimeStopper needs a constant 12 volt power and a switched 12 volt power source. The constant 12V is provided in the relay pack harness and the switched power can by gotten by the cigarette lighter not too far away. The ground is also supplied in the relay pack harness.

There are 6 wires that can control the lock actuators. It's best to think of the wiring as two circuits. An unlocking circuit and a locking circuit. Since I just wanted the most basic system of having all locks work at the same time, you basically just combine all locking wires together and then all unlocking wires together.

Ground
Constant 12V
Locking Circuit
Unlocking Circuit
Black wire on SAAB harness Green wire on SAAB harness White/Brown wire on SAAB harness (for other doors and trunk Violet wire on SAAB harness (for other doors and trunk)
CrimeStopper black wire on 12 pin harness CrimeStopper red wire on 12 pin harness Green/white wire on SAAB harness (for drivers door) Yellow wire on SAAB harness (for drivers door)
CrimeStopper brown/black on 6 pin harness CrimeStopper violet wire on 6 pin harness CrimeStopper Green/Black wire on 6 pin harness CrimeStopper Blue/Black wire on 6 pin harness
CrimeStopper white/black on 6 pin harness CrimeStopper violet/black wire on 6 pin harness
Your wire colors may differ from mine!

Since there are separate wires for the drivers doors, it can be wired to lock/unlock separately. An extra relay needs to be bought and the install is somewhat detailed in the CrimeStopper directions.

The stock wiring does not allow a separate trunk circuit. You would have to run new wires to the trunk actuator to get this option.

The CrimeStopper came with the correct default settings for running the actuators. The main setting is to have 0.8 seconds of duration to activate the locks. The other option of 3.0 seconds is too long and may burn out the actuator.

That's pretty much it!

After making sure everything works as expected, just reinstall the knee bolster and the door panel and you are good to go!
