    does it still happen if you disconnect the battery for 10 - 15 minutes and then put it back on (yes the good old have you tried turning it off and on again trick)

    not sure what the ICP not programmed message is about as i can not find that error message but reading other sites, the general consensus is you will need to find a garage that has the tech 2 computer to hook it up to the car to program it correctly (this may be the issue with the fuel gauge)

    thanks for the reply and yea treid all the old tricks bangin the dash switichin on off ..the battery was dead when i went to pick the car up ...a friend suggested the icp not programmed might have something to do with the alarm and immobiliser and that could be causing it

    is that the exact error message you see on the sid "ICP NOT PROGRAMMED"?

    as google isnt showing anything for it so would have figured someone somewhere would have reported it before

    try disconnecting battery again for 15min or so

    when you turn ign off do all gauges return to 0

    jon, thats also where my thoughts are, or an ICM failiure / not married to the car which is responsible for communicating with the SID and ive never heard of an ICP have you?

    but this thread https://www.saabscene.com/forum/threa...not-programmed
    does mention an "ECU not programmed" message and states the ICM is a gateway between the Main Instrument Unit, and the SID.

    so i would conclude possibly just a tech 2 session might be needed to resolve both issues (i think they might be the same)?

    I've not come across an ICP message either,which is why i'm thinking the cluster been replaced,but not programmed to the car..

    if there is a problem only tech2 will be able to read all the system and whether they're communicating with each other properly..
