My SID is currently reading 55.1 MPG, i know saabs are supposed to get good gas but 55.1 is insane.....it goes up by .1 every 5-10 seconds or so and i can't imagine this is really my MPG, i've tried resetting my SID several times but it always starts at 1.0 and goes up by .1 there after.

Also my black panel only stops the illumination of my SID, and my dimmer switch only works for my buttons and SID (not the guages or climate control screen)
Any ideas?

Thankyou

The dimmer switch rheostat is probable at least partially burned out.
A WIS(workshop info system) will be necessary for the rest of all your problems.
Maybe the Tech II can find something....at the dealers...
Has anyone worked on this area in the past ?

Would a new switch solve this? or is there a way to test if this is the problem before I purchase a new one? or other things that i could test to rule them out? It worked when i got the car about a month ago.

Thanks
