Question about 2004 Saab 9-3
the problem could be in the sending unit. this is a wired potentiometer and if you have a broken wire in the potentiometer, then that is what would happen.
you can verify this by grounding the sending unit wire to ground. you will have a full tank reading always. then use the car and see if it will still bounce and very erratic. if does not do that, then the sending unit is the problem. if it still do the erratic reading, then there are more problems.
