If you find that the bulbs are OK (there are 3) you may have the "missing pixel" problem.

Written instructions on how to get inside the ACC unit and try a fix are here . Sorry, there are no pictures (yet).

The first bit of the instructions will get you to the bulbs anyway.

Sorry to be a little 'picky' here, but there are 4 bulbs and holders inside the ACC control unit. I should know, because I've got one open in my hand now!
Small and insignificant point I know. I'll slap my own wrists and get my anorak on!!!

Sgould's post refers to the 9-5 ACC. The 9000 ACC is quite different. In the ACC2 units in my '95 and '96s, there are three bulbs, accessed by removing the six cross-head screws securing the front panel and unclipping the panel. Older units may have a different number of bulbs.



The bulb holders can be removed by turning anticlockwise. You can simply throw away the entire bulb/holder assemblies and replace with new units, available at your Saab dealer for loadsamoney, or remove the wire-ended bulbs from the holders and replace with part number WQ13 from Maplin at 79p each (or £6.70 for 10).
