I changed my steering column universal joint and the Anit skid light came on. Reason being the sensor for the steering wheel needed re calibrating on the Tech 2. The computer can sense if the steering wheel is not straight. Two Hall sensors are inside the column module pick up movement from a gear and this is relayed to the Hall sensor. My car has a later steering column universal join so I had to rotate on the spines to get the steering wheel near straight then get it re calibrated. all ok now .

The stability control system uses the abs wheel speed sensors to detect when a wheel is losing traction and would presumably apply the brake on that wheel to maintain traction.

The system is the Vauxhall (GM's British operation) version of a traction control system further refined by Saab's engineers.

Stability control failure means the system will no longer be available to assist the driver maintain traction.

Check control module and wireing for loose or bad connection. Intermittent problems are hard to diagnose even at shop and can get expensive fast so also try taking off negative battery cable for 1 hour to reset all cars computers believe it or not this fixes 80 percent of intermittent problems

If I had invested in new leather, I would just suck it up and replace the top at a certified Saab dealership.

Sounds like a problem with TWICE unit, not a fuel pump. Find someone with Tech2 and read DTC codes from Engine/Trionic7 and TWICE.

No, you haven't missed anything I can think of, but the fact that it was intermittent, then permanent tells me that somewhere therein lies the answer. I admittedly don't know anything at all about "the orange light control relay", but it seems that if that's the problem it would probably affect both sides. Sorry I can't be more help. . .

The sounds come through the RADIO !!
Only Saab does this in my experience.

Check the fuse for the radio.

When you try to crank the engine, are you hearing any response at all from the starter? Click from under the hood? Dimming interior lights? Anything?

there most likely is no need to replace the oil as oil travels with the gas
it is normally put in through the compressor but the amount is critical as excessive oil will block the TX valve
now that you have replaced the evaporator, take it to an auto ac specialist shop , have the system evacuated right down , any oil required to be added and the correct amount of gas to be installed
