    DOH! I cannot for the life of me remember how to set the date. I asked on a previous thread and cannot find it. Can someone please remind me!:)

    Hi all, Newbie to the site and to Saab ownership! I have just purchased a 1999 9-5 Estate 2.0 and the date on the readout is incorrect. The stereo system I have is the one with just the radio and CD and unfortunately the handbook I have is for one with a Radio/CD/Tape. Could someone please...

    Hi All, I've got a late 2007 9-3 with the facelifted dashboard. I went to the car today to move the clock forward an hour. I noticed that in the date/time settings menu on the Infotainment unit there are options for time display format (12/24h) and date display options (DD/MM/YY or MM/DD/YY)...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    A number on the underside of the cartridge gives the code for a date of manufacture. Is it embossed on the casting or on the sticker? I know someone posted a thread some years ago but i can't find it. Can someone please point me in the right direction or give the code. Many thanks Roger

    Could someone tell me how to change the date on the sid. It changed by itself somehow. I am too lazy to have a look in the handbook to check it, thanks James.

    Went out tonight at around 7.30 pm and glanced at the date on the sid and it read 25th dec :eek: that was a bit optimistic I thought. Dam!! didnt put the turkey in the oven :wink: .Cold must be confusing it.

    Hello, I have a 56 Plate Vector Sport 150bhp Tid. I have the premium 150 sound system fitted with 6 cd changer dash system in the car. It sounds excellent and am very pleased with the system, however my question is this. When the radio is off/standby, the time is displayed in the right hand...
  10. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Hi just had new battery, everything ok,even drives better (reset chip ?) but date on sid showing 3rd jan ! Is there an easy way to reset other than holding the time advance button for 24hrs cheers
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    OK, I serviced the car, replacing the fuel filter as well, obeying all the Haynes instructions. Disconnected the battery and all that. So how does one set the date on the display, or am I missing something basic? Car is running beautifully after some much needed TLC.

    Small problem happening to a friend in Sweden (where I'm on holiday now skiing :D :D :D). On his MY06 9-5 Linear 2.0lpt auto BioPower (great drive - especially when you get the 30% power increase using E85 ethanol :D) the SID clock will for some reason reset back to zero (or at least back to...
  13. Saabscene Events
    Hi Guys, so one week to go before the main event. This is just to confirm that I have it right, please PM me if you see differently or help and advice. We could do with one more car on the rollers, we have 9 but they did say minimum of 10, I may be able to bluff it, but would rather...
  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have read the manual and I am no wiser. How do you change the date on the information display? The problem arose when I changed the battery. Thanks for any advice.
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Where should the Outside Air Temperature Sensor be fitted or installed? I found mine just dangling behind the left Head Lamp. Thanks.

    Two months into my first Saab ownership has not been without some glitches: - On delivery (the car had 7k miles on the clock & 4 months old) the CD player was not working and locks had not been programmed to my requirements. These were quickly fixed by the dealer. - With the darker nights...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Not sure if Saab are playing an April Fool's joke on me, but last week, the date display on my 2003 95 TiD Estate was March 2006. Since Saturday it now shows as 2004 - i.e. gone back 2 years. Can I change this? I see nothing in owner's manual. Also, funny messages coming up on SID about...
  18. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Does anyone know how to set the date on a SID1 unit when there is NO oem audio system anymore (meaning the RDS setting function can't be used via the two biuttons under the time display)? It's doing my head in ! Secondly - Thanks to those who replied to my recent none-loading CD post. I ended...
