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.

SOURCE: My LED is no longer

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

SOURCE: why do i have to take my remotes to a saab dealer

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!

Saab 9-5 air conditioner is out


Totally depends what is wrong. If it simply a leak somewhere, it could cost under $200: find the leak, replace the hose or fitting, done. If the A/C compressor has gone bad, it could be around $1200: new compressor, accumulator, labor to install.

Good Luck!

1999 Saab 9-5 SE


I own a  99' 9-5 V6 turbo SE.  Had the same thing.  Started smelling gas in the car, sometimes.  Instead of not starting it died (as in the engine stopped) on a barren stretch of road at night.  Towed to the Saab dealer: Conclusion?  Replaced the fuel pump and sending unit. Don't ask how much.
