Thanks for that
Will this depend on what stereo is fitted in the saab or it universal
As pressing the SRC button on the Steering wheel doesnt say AUX on the SID ??

if aux doesn't show up when scrolling thru,it's not enabled,dealer or saab indy with access to tech2..

doesn't matter which icm you have..

aux in cable fits into the ehu which is located behind the CC panel,what you see in the dash is just the control panel..

Also checking on the H7 Nightbreakers Plus you mentioned
Noticed that they have choices Low and High Beam ... take it its Low I am looking for as both bulbs are the same and its normal headlight bulbs I am looking for
As thats 2 sets I have used (5000K/6000K) and they arent that bright and also noticed that they seem to bend to the left after a day and the SID displays dipped light failure

These ok ?

BULBS HERE

Anyone else think that the DTW function displaying 'Refill fuel now' with 30km to go is stupid?

I mean, when you are running out of fuel, you actually want to know how much further you can go, not so?

My windshield wipers have the option of 0, AUTO, 1, 2.

It seems like:
1 is constant slow
2 is constant fast
AUTO will change depending on the amount of rain (which is okay... since I seem to have Rain-X right now... but afraid it may not be sufficient without Rain-X)

Is there anything in between, such as wipers on delay? Every 3 secs? 6 secs?

Just bought a 2004 Saab 9-3 used... very excited and loving it. So many gadgets inside though that I don't understand. This is one of em. Haha

Default Misfire

Never had a problem with any misfires on my 2005 93 ARC. I put a JZW Stage 2 onto it after getting my catback exhaust installed and i started misfiring around 3500 RPMs. He told me its either a Coil or Spark Plugs. I took it to my mechanic and he replaced and gaped my plugs to the right size and said that my coils are fine. We took it for a quick drive and had the same 3500 RPM misfiring. We then put the original ecu back on and then wouldn't misfire till 5500 RMPs. Any ideas on what could be going on?

So I've got a bit of door damage, and the car thinks that the door is ajar, as it won't shut all the way. Is there any way to convince the car that the door is closed, until I get it in to the shop to be fixed?

It does the same on the V6s. It's the coil pack going bad. A tuned engine demands more of the coils than the base tune. Find which one is misfiring and replace.

No intermittent options like that for auto wipers. It's Auto (rain sensor), low, fast. But in the SID you can adjust the sensitivity for rain: Low>Med>High.

I also noticed that right after I used my windshield washer fluid, I tried again and it didn't work! Is there something that I don't know?

Default What windshield washer size do I buy?!?!?

What windshield wiper size do I buy?!?!?

I have tried 3 brands now from THREE different stores, each of which the salesman claimed the blades would fit but they DO not fit. Someone please help!!

I am looking for a good blade, not just an OEM-quality blade. Links/URLs to blades that FIT would be much appreciated.

Don't ask me why, but I need to know where the side impact sensor is for the front passenger side. Also, are they reusable, or one time only thing?

I had seen that, but I was wondering if anyone knows if the sensor is inside the door sill, or just along side it, under carpet, between seat and door, under the seat, etc, etc.
