  2. 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...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have an '08 9-3 with an SID2 (I believe) It has the main mileage on the left side of the SID, there is a second number exactly in line with the main mileage on the right of the SID. I thought it was the trip computer or similar, but it doesn't change when I reset everything. What is it (and...

  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Whats involved in this? Is it just a straight swap? What benefits are there to doing this? Is it possible to view faults that have come up in the past through the SID? Does it need to be coded to the car via tech2? Thanks.
  9. Saab Recommendations
    I have only recently discovered this very useful site. I wish I had found it before when the SID2 went on my wife's 9.3 2.0T SE costing over £300 to replace! The display on is starting to go on my 9.3 2.2 TiD SE. Could someone please advise the email/contact tel no for Simon the SID repair...

    My new SID2, along with needing to be programmed, now tries to convince me its "Service Due" time ... How do I clear this message myself?
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, I've just replaced my failed SID2 from a MY00 2.3lpt with a new one, and it displays SID UNPROG when turning the engine on. I thought the SID was just a display unit and wasn't programmed to the car like the stereo etc. All the functions seem to work OK, should I worry about this? Rob
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have been searching the forums for a while, over the last 6 months or so but do not seem to find the answer. The speaker in my SID2 (99 9-3) no longer works, meaning that I no longer hear the indicators working, and the alarm(s) no longer work, such as leaving sidelights on. I have had SID2...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi Folks, After lurking for a while now, I have taken the plunge, bought a 2001 2.2TiD and signed up to Saabscene. I am giving it the once over at the moment (it has scrubbed up well!) and my first question for this forum is regarding bulbs for the SID2. Are these only available from Dealers...

    Hi again people. My SID has given up this morning. I cant count the number of pixels now, not bad when stuck in traffic. I have had a look on the forum at upgrading a sid to sid 2 and seems possible but do they both share the same connectors baring in mind i have a 98 R reg, so its an early...

    Hello All, Has anyone had their doors realigned to stop wind noise above 100mph on a Coupe? Also, the radios station has disappeared on my SID 2 I am going to have a go at fixing it but gather that the fixes do not generally last that long. Who is the recommended supplier of...
