Radio & ABS Haywire, plus humming from speakers after playing with Aux port

Hi everyone. I'm desperately trying to figure out what I did to my 2007 Saab 9-3 2.0T after playing with the Aux port on the radio.

Ok, so for some reason, the new phone I got (a Motorola Moto G Power) is very finicky about deciding to send audio out of the headphone jack instead of phone loudspeakers when plugging into the Saab's Aux port. I figured out that the phone has to be plugged into regular headphones first that it can recognize, THEN it will actually start recognizing it's plugged into the Saab afterwards. Doesn't seem to be an issue with the Aux cords, as i've tested several and they perform the same ways. And my previous phone, a Samsung Galaxy J7 Sky Pro, never had this problem.

HOWEVER, when i was doing my second or third test on plugging in the aux port after plugging headphones into my phone, the car started going haywire. Every time I start the car up now, the ABS alerts start going off in the dash, a humming noise is constantly coming out of the speakers, and the radio will either randomly turn on and off or just stay off.

I know the electrical system and harness on the Saab are rocket science, but i honestly have no idea what happened to it or even how to start troubleshooting it. If anybody knows what possibly happened, I would be much appreciated to hear any input

So i have a feeling that my radio is shot. When my car is in the on position, but not started (it can't anyway) and with the radio off, i try to turn the radio on with the power button and that triggers more electrical sensors/alarms. My assumption is that the radio is probably bad. Anybody know of a simple way i can confirm this without getting a new OEM or aftermarket stereo to test?
