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.
Saab 9-5 climate control repairs
My repair of the dual zone climate control system, where one side was stuck
on heater only. I used the on-board diagnostics to identify problems. Both
sides required work for a complete 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
Solving 2001 Saab 9-5 ABS/TCS/CEL Problem -EricTheCarGuy

This 2001 Saab 9-5 came in with just about every light lit up on the dash.
The first code I pulled was a P1625 for the CEL which indicates a
communication error between the ABS unit and the PCM. After looking into
this code I found out this is a common problem with these Bosch ABS units.
Rather than purchasing a new unit however I decided to send the existing
ABS unit off to BBA Remanufacturing for remanufacture. Some of these units
require that you pair a new unit up with the PCM, mine was one of those so
sending off my existing unit made the most sense because if I had just
gotten a remanufactured one I would have had to program it to work with the
cars PCM. This took a bit longer but it saved me quite a bit of trouble in
the end. Here are some useful links mentioned in the video.

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!
