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.

Yamaha R1 vs Police (SAAB 9-5 Aero)
*** EDIT: The officer driving the police car was later sentenced to pay a
ticket, 19.000 SEK (€ 2000 // $ 2850). The reason was he didn´t obey
order to abort pursuit and he didn´t had the permission to cut the bike
Video from Sweden. An unmarked police car chases an Yamaha R1 -01. Seems
like the police doesn´t use their sirens. The driver of the police car was
later charged for not obey order. 6.34 he receives the order to abort the

Fixing Saab 9-5 Security System Problems -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
As I said in the video the owner brought me this car along with the
supposed fix. The symptoms were an intermittent no start and a message on
the dash indicating a security system problem. Apparently this is a common
problem with Saabs of this vintage and the problem is usually linked to
this siren/security module. Apparently the batteries go bad in the unit
causing it to act up intermittently. In this video I show the steps needed
to replace the module, it's actually a very easy job that does not require
a lot of tools. So if you have an issue with the security system on a Saab
of this vintage you might want to give this fix a try.
Here's the ebay store link to the company that rebuilds the modules.
