  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi Folks, As I approach my second childhood I decided to treat myself to a 1998 SAAB 9-3 SE Convertible. I got it on Friday and it is all I hoped - except for the SID 2. At times I can read quite clearly then about 40%, then virtually nothing. It is quietly driving me mad. Is there any way to...
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all, I thought I would share this tip which worked for me. Approx 80% of the Pixels were missing on my A/C unit which was bugging me. After lots of research, I decided to have a go at fixing it myself. If it went wrong, £50 for a 2nd hand one from Ebay is no big deal. On dissassembly of my...

  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have read with interest items on how to restore pixels to the ACC display by giving TLC, ironing, soldering etc to the ribbon cable. I wondered if it was possible to do similar repair to the SID display. My SAAB dealer says if a new unit is fitted I will probably need a new code to be put in...

  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    hi am trying to fix a few problems that my 9-5 came with. One of these is the ACC control panel display is missing some pixels (mainly all of them!). I tried taking the unit apart and wedging polystyrene in the gap in the loop of the ribbon cable to make it taught. This did not work. I tried...

    On no not again! pixel missing on the SID display,---it`s made by Nokia---- (you might be able to make phones Mr Nokia) I had this problem about 18 months ago, stripped the unit down , and tried the re-heating and re-sticking of the ribbon cable, which went very wrong. However a second hand unit...
