Question about 1993 Saab 9000 Hatchback
The odometer stopped working just short of 200 k miles (or 300 k kilometers). This happened over a year ago but now it is time for the yearly inspection and I guess it is important to have a working odometer for insurance policies to be effective etc.
The speedometer and RPM meter works fine, also the cruise computer and everything else in fact. On this car there is an electronic connection from the gearbox (or more exactly from the differential gear) to the speedo, and there is a mechanical traditional odometer and trip meter that I guess are fed by some internal motor-driven mechanism within the instrument.
Question: is it worthwhile to try to repair this yourself or is it a new instrument module that is needed?
Many thanks in advance!

SOURCE: Speedometer is no longer working
I'm not sure this will fix it, but it's the "obvious" solution if it's real simple. Is there a button above the radio that says "black panel" ? If so press it and the lights would come back on. If that's not it, then it's probably a blown fuse. Open the fuse box (see owner's manual for location on your model and year) and look at the fuses to see if any are discolored or broken.

sound like leaking fuel injectors.have them cleaned and check.they are flooding out engine.when you turn off engine.they will continue to drip.

As Saab is in relation to Subaru.....the first thing I would check is the spark plugs, ignition coil and spark plug wires. Have a technician check them for carbon tracking as if you are getting some hesitation and is inconsistant you may very well have a missfire. Minor problem but could be costly depending upon if it's got a single coil or one for each cylinder.

ONLY APPLIES TO CONDITION OCCURING AFTER WORKING ON BRAKES
My son's 1998 9-5 had similar issues after we had rebuilt the callipers and had a general refurbishment of the front hub. No amount of bleeding the brakes or checking components resolved the problem. We were resigned to taking it in for a diagnostic report but found that after driving a short distance the warning lights disappeared despite having previously run the car in drive with the front wheels raised which was when we noticed the lack of speedo.
My guess, and had been a bit of hope, is that the system needed to recalibrate after all the work we had done. Perhaps it hadn't liked the front wheels turning whilst the back remained stationary - whatever.
