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 finish... http://youtu.be/8nmOxskkg_w
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.
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.

Live engine data is delivered straight to the car SID !!!

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: http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21434

Saab 9-5 2.0T OpenSID w/Engine Mode
Activated OpenSID and Engine Mode on my Saab 9-5.
Engine mode settings are E = Economy, N = Normal and S = Sport.
In this case, E = Lambda-controlled, limited power, about 0,45Bar Boost. N = Normal map, 1,5Bar Boost and S = Normal map + better throttle response.
How to add an Aux Input to a Saab 9-3 USING A PLUG-IN HARNESS!!!
THEY ARE BACK IN STOCK. If you want one, send an email to email@example.com and I'll reply explaining how to buy.
Since the other method required splicing into wires or attaching to individual pins, I decided to simplify things for people by making a plug-in harness. The connector on the harness is identical to the factory connector and plugs right into the auxiliary input on the back of the radio. This makes the installation super-simple and quick.

As I said in the video you need to be responsible when dealing with refrigerant, also in some locations it's not legal for you to perform your own AC work so keep that in mind and observe your local laws.

Fatal high speed police chase - Unmarked SAAB 9-5 Aero vs Kawasaki ZX-10R *Translated*
***EDIT This video doesn´t show the crash! At 47:57 the chopper report the bike has wrecked. There is no pics of the bike after the crash in this video. Subtitles is only availible first 20 minutes.
This guy did only have license to drive cars, caught riding a bike can result in a 6 month ban. Speeding at 81 km/h over the limit (and more) will revoke your license for 8 month. Bottom line, many riders going fast on 1000cc sportbikes will run. Choppers are used rarely to catch speeders***
A Kawasaki ZX-10R fly by an unmarked SAAB. The biker has no mirrors and ain´t aware of he is being followed by the police.
At 14.30 the bike starts to pick up the pace.
At 17.10 he looks back and guns it. Soon he is gone and this unit doesn´t have the bike insight again. Although the bike is far away this unit continues to chase him for 30 minutes. More than 20 unites including a chopper were involved in this chase.
A heating debate started in Sweden if police acting appropriate due to the fact this was only a traffic violation. The biker died in the end when he slammed into a road barrier, the passenger didn´t suffer any injuries. The rider was just a regular chap going out for a ride on his ZX-10R equipped with a Racefit Growler
Nothing happens in the last 20 minutes, just radio traffic
