Hi, as a UK newbie to both this forum and Saab's I am hoping one of the members can help me out. I have just brought an 03 plate Saab 9-3 2.2 TID and there is a fault on the top display which wasn't illuminated at time of purchase, the guy I brought it from said it was temperamental and thought it was a fuse problem. The radio/cd player worked though .
I found the relevant fuse and on pulling it out the radio went off, I replaced the fuse and the display came up said it was checking then everything was displayed correctly Time Date DTE etc etc . Switched the radio on and channel etc was displayed so thought I had cracked it. Unfortunately not it works fine for a while then next time I get in the car and turn the ignition on there is no display but the radio still works so obviously there is power going through the said fuse. When the display is not working I also lose my indicators display on the main instrument panel. Pull the fuse and put it back in and the displays on again and works fine for a while ( few hours ) but next day it's off again.
Now pulling and replacing the fuse is not exactly hard work but I would rather just get in and turn the ignition and see my display so can anyone point me in the right direction to sort it.
