  1. 9-5 Workshop
    There are two issues I have with the SID: the beeps are too quiet my SID sounds like a crow that's been strangled. Sucks. That's why I came up with this thought...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi, My 2003 9-5 with paddle shifters was all good until I sent away my SiD to be repaired. The guy had all sorts of personal issues and it was delayed so he just sent me another one. It is throwing a transmission light on the dash and the paddle shifters no longer work. I've read this can be...
  3. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey everyone, I've been fiddling with the dash to see if I could get the lights working again. I first replaced the dimmer switch as that seemed like the most common issue, and my car has the classic symptoms of the switch being bad (lighting up for just a brief moment when the vehicle is first...
  4. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi, I changed my SID and it is throwing a P0826 code orange Transmission light Low Coolant Fluid From other threads it seems I have put the incorrect SID in. The glass and ribbon on my original broke. Is it likely to sort itself after a number of on/offs or will I need to get another SID...
  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Two issues I'm having, one is my top hasn't worked for a while, I replaced one of the hydraulic lines that was leaking about a year ago thinking that would fix it which it did not. I'm no longer able to put the top back manually seeing as the back doesn't unlatch when I try to press the switch...
  6. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    A CD got stuck in my stock stereo, so I had an aux adapter installed that I can plug my iphone into. Shortly after, my car battery died (possibly due to a bad tail light ground). When I replaced my battery, the SID and all sounds, and my dash lights were out, except lights flashing on a bit...
  7. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello all, I suppose that in this case model does not matter since SID1/2 was installed in different models. Anyway, in my Saab 9-5 2003 I have SID1 with OpenSID enabled. Since SID1 has only CLEAR UP/DOWN buttons and no SET button i do not know how to change MODE parameter in order to get acces...
  8. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello! I bought a 2001 Saab 9-5 a few months ago. I noticed that the SID was showing 50*C and figured out I had to replace the sensor. I bought a new sensor and installed it. Now the sid shows ———. I have recalibrated the ACC after replacement and it showed no fault codes during the process. Any...
  9. New Member Introductions
    Long time Saab Lover, first time owner! I just purchased a 1999 9-3 Convertible, and I've got my Haynes manual, but hoping to utilize the Saab knowledge in forum for some of the more interesting hiccups along the way. So far all the work I've done consists of oil change (mobil 1), with K&N...
  10. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys, I was wondering if I could ask for your help in diagnosing problems with my 2004 Saab 9-3's SID and radio. I don't know much about cars except for a general idea on how they run and where to turn my wrench. I bought this Saab a while back and the SID and radio didn't work. I had no...
  11. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, I've read through as much as I can on the forums and within WIS, but I can't wrap my head around this one. I'm getting the "Service Theft Alarm" message on the SID every time I start the car. I'm also unable - 95% of the time - to unlock my doors with my remote key; I have to go...
  12. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a '95 900 S convertible project with just 52,500 miles, but with a few gremlins. The SID is completely dead, including the clock & Black Panel buttons. Nothing functions. However, the buttons & clock light do light up when the car's lights are on - but it takes a few minutes for it to...
  13. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello everyone, Now that I have your attention, the SID on my 2004 9-3 sedan has lost about 99% of its functionality. It still displays the date and speed warning but that's all. Everything else, including radio information is gone. Also, when I enter the menu, all I see are sold...
  14. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've seen several threads on this topic but I have not found the answer. I have a 2004 9-3 and the backlights on and around the radio/AC/headlight switch are on during the day, but completely dark at night. If i cover the sensor on the SID during the day, the lights go out. Is the sensor in...
  15. 9-5 Workshop
    I recently installed a trailer hitch on my 2006 9-5 wagon and am now looking to install the wiring for some trailer lights. I've read the posts about the older 9-5's having the wiring harness in the rear hatch area, however, because mine is a later model, it didn't come with the 10 pin...
  16. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, I am trying to figure out the most efficient way of getting access to the SID of my 2007 9-5 so that I can tap a wire into it from my PAC SWI-RC steering wheel controls unit for my after market radio (Pioneer NEX). It's located behind the instrument panel. I'm wondering how big a job...
  17. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello, I tryed to search for similar topic, but I could not find it so I'm hoping to find more info. After reseting CIM with Tech2, SID on average fuel consumption shows ---. I tryed to reset it for like 10 times on different speeds and different distances but it still does not show anything...

    Hey guys first time posting here, long time reader.. Have solved quite a few problems from here, and love to learn from trial and error but sometimes it just gets a little too old.. bare with me as I know these questions have been asked several times, if this post needs to be moved to a...
  19. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I attempted to fix my SID1 (unreadable pixels) by swapping the old ribbon cable with a new one, but accidentally caused damage to where it connects on the circuit board. Not sure how to fix this (feel free to post your suggestions), so I am thinking about getting a new SID. So, if I got a newer...
