theSAABguy Review: Pixelfix.net Replacement SID Ribbon Cable
This is a review and trail of a replacement ribbon cable from pixelfix.net.
If you own an older SAAB 9-3 or 9-5 you probably don't have all your pixels
on your SID- SAAB Information Display. Amazing results!
Check out my other video... it shows the entire process from start to

2006 Saab 9-3 Aftermarket GPS Install
I installed a Garmin 1490lmt into my Saab 9-3. There was really no place to
mount it on the dash that didn't block the view out of the car or block the
Saab Information Display on the dash, so I installed it down in the little
storage compartment that would otherwise get filled with junk and change. I
think this looks much cleaner than sticking it to the dash.
Saab 9 3 custom front for $1.40....
Very cheap way to change the appearance of your Saab 9-3 1999 to 2002 or
NG900 1994 to 1998. Look for my other Video on Headlight removal,
cleaning and repair..
Saab 9-5 SID Swap
The importance of getting the correct SID in your 9-5. Not all SID's speak
the same "language". Saab used the same SID's for model years '98-'01, one
SID for all '02's, one for all '03's, and one updated unit for all '04-'05
models. / I've DISABLED COMMENTS! I do NOT want a Google + profile added to

Extreme turbo Saab + 300 kmh
Many viewers have misunderstood this video, so I explain it a little:
-Speed at finish line (1mile/1609m) is measured. Time is not measured.
-First Saab does 1st and 2nd gear with ~half throttle. Second Saab has
limited Boost for 1st and 2nd gear.
- three extra seconds between 0-100kmh typically means ~30meters wasted.
But three extra seconds used in speeds close to 300kmh, means almost
Here is equally powerful RWD cars (if not even more HP's) These RWD's are a
lot faster between 0-150kmh, but
these Saabs are faster from
150kmh-300kmh. You get the point when you compare speeds at finish line.
-A Saab 9-5 driver pushes a little too much throttle @3rd gear and looses
traction. He lifts a throttle and pushes it back, but too much again and
then he gears up 4th, a bit earlier than planned. (optimal is@205kmh).
Earlier that summer I broke one gearbox when pushing too hard on 3rd gear.
With new gearbox and at later event, I drove very gently on first three
gears to avoid breaking it again. I pushed WOT for the first time on 4th
gear @ 190kmh. You can hear it clearly on following video. Engine tone
changes totally around 200kmh. Incar video is from 299kmh pull (at 1 mile
race) Something happened to camera during the run. So I didn't get any
incar video from a 305kmh pull. To see that run from the start line, please
see my other videos.
Here is incar video until camera dies. Start is @1min.
Saab 9-5 SID LCD Display Repair
My repair of a Saab SID display, which had lost pixels on the LCD screen.
Ultimately, I discovered the ribbon cable had deteriorated beyond repair,
and I purchased a replacement ribbon cable. A $400 unit was fixed for a
little more than $40.
How to Add an AUX Input to a Saab 9-3
This video shows how to add an AUX input jack to a 2003 or newer Saab 9-3.
Before doing this you might want to look in your center armrest and see if
there's one there already. I had one, I just didn't know it. Oh well... I
like the location of this one better anyway. My car is a 2006. I don't know
what year Saab started adding the AUX input in the armrest, but some of the
earlier cars didn't have them.
Anyway, now I have TWO AUX inputs! :-)
If your car is a 2003 through 2005, go here to see how to connect the wires
directly to the pins on the back of the stereo:
2000 Saab 9-3 2.0 Turbo Start Up, Engine, and Full Tour

exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and
noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine,
