Question about 1999 Saab 9-5
As for the LED screen, there is a way to fix this. The problem is the ribbon that connects the screen to the main board. It's glued on. After time the plastic in the ribbon shrinks causing it to ripple up, losing contact in spots.
open the cup holder, and reach in underneath and pull on the LED unit. You can pull it out by hand at this point. Unplug it.
take a torx bit and remove the black plastic cover around the unit.
locate the white ribbon and carefully press down at each connection point with a bic ballpoint pen.
then take some adhesive weather stripping (3/8" wide) and build up 3 layers of this ontop of the ribbon.
When you renstall the black cover, you will have to squeeze the stripping the down and work the cover over it. It should be a tight fit.
The stripping will expand against the black cover and keep the ribbon pressed against the board.
Use the black stuff that squeezes and slowly 'puffs' back up.
As for the fuel cap, you have a leak somewhere in the venting system. Try looking at the hoses attached to the charcoal canister inder the hood. All the fumes from the system vent thru that, and the pressure is also sensed from that canister.

I assume you're referring to the SID (system information display) that shows the temperature, distance to empty, etc.
You CAN take this apart and apply pieces of foam or rubber to increase the tension/pressure being applied to the LCD panel itself.
Here's a nice walk-through: http://www.thesaabsite.com/93/Saab-Sidrepairs.htm

They need to be set to the computer in your car. The remotes are generic...
BUT Maybe it is in your Owners Manual... But otherwise... You are gonna have to pay to have them reset!
