    I'm afraid I don't have any additional information for you. I sold the car about a month after the last post. Maybe others in the thread have come across more information since then.

    Hmm, the speedometer would shut off when mine was going out. Other than that, I had the same lights and alert sound you're getting. My MY2000 9-5 was about the age of your 2005 when it happened. I'd...

    Yep, sounds like the ABS module is going out. Does your speedometer stop working when it happens?
    You can find remanufacturers (like BBA Reman) online, the new ABS module is expensive. The good...

    It sounds like the CPS to me, too. Make sure the old rubber o-ring comes out with the old CPS when you do replace it. Smooshing the new one in there with two o-rings would be very frustrating. :D

    The problems sound similar to the time the wiring insulation inside my TB finally crapped out. My car was 8 years old then, so yours is nearing the same age mine was. I don't know what to tell you as...

    I agree with Brad. It's how my gear selector position sensor when out. It took a year and a half before it got bad enough that I decided to replace it. Towards the end I would get a P0705...

    You've got classic ABS Module failure. A new/rebuilt module can be installed in the driveway in about 45 minutes. I took mine out, sent it to BBA Remanufacturers and got it back by the end of the...

    I have the Forge version of the one in your link and have been very happy with it. There is a different noise with it compared to the stock Bosh DV. It's most noticeable with an open air intake.

    That's my understanding.
    I checked online and the '04 9-3 ARC SS isn't on the list I looked up. Looks like there was major changes for the 2004 and newer 9-3. But I'm not familiar with anything...

    If my 9-5 was doing what you describe I would clean my throttle body and give it a test drive. Next I would swap out the direct ignition cassette from a friend's car to see if there was any change in...

    I don't have much brand loyalty for oil filters, myself, as long as they aren't in the "value-tier". I would gladly use a Mobil1 filter on my car. This guy did a lot of research and says Mobil1...

    STP S3600
    Bosch 3422
    K&N HP 2009

    Now I'm really confused. I'm convinced, having read the pdf, that my fans are working normal while the car is running. But I've never had the fan run after the car has been turned off.

    Good idea. $15 for a new temp sensor is an easy gamble to take on getting this mystery solved. I've got my fingers crossed.
