Easy way... disconnect the negative terminal on your battery for a minute.... this will of course reset everything in your SID, however it seems to remember your seat position and radio stations. Strange, but it works.. :)

Saab 9-3 "time for service"

Get it serviced if it needs it, and make sure they reset the light.

If it doesn't need servicing, reset it yourself in the SID menu.

"Time for service" light comes on after the car

Your mechanic may have forgotten to reset the light. Also if the time for service light is your check engine light a fault code may be stored in the vehicles on board computer. Have the codes pulled to determine if a fault code is present or not. If there are non you can have the light reset, however if there is a fault code and you just reset it the light will keep coming on until the problem is corrected.
