    Ever since Day 1 of the car I had the CEL Light of P0496 Come up and I finally fixed it, same exact instructions on fixing it as any 9-3 aero

    Instructions can be found here:

    With the MAF that close to the air filter box I'd get worried about getting K&N oil all over it, so make sure you check it often and keep it clean. My buddy's Toyota Tacoma threw a CEL every month due to oil from a K&N on the MAF. He replaced the K&N with a regular filter and it never happened again.

    I'm jealous that Weathertech makes the fitted mats for the 9-4x, as apparently they don't make them for the Gen I 9-5 anymore. Argh.

    Yea I did notice the current filter has a dust particle so lets see how it performs, there is a definite power increase but yea I will be monitoring the air filter as well

    Quite the Journey.

    So the other day I get a Stabilatrak failure (Sucks they couldn't program the words Haldex Instead) and then get a Check Engine Light.

    The CEL was found and it was for the MAF Sensor, apparently it either is dirty or it does not like the K&N Filter.

    Dealer told me this so I will clean it one more time and see if it still doesn't like the K&N Filter and then put it back to stock if thats the case.

    Next my battery was fine but then when I dropped it off at the dealership to clear the sunroof channel and a few other things it died at the dealership and has been dieing ever since. So now I need a new battery really odd it didn't happen before the dealership


    The car really hates dead batteries like every other saab so time to replace that

    Its def been a Journey

    PS my warranty didn't cover most of the dealership work so had to pay out of pocket Sigh

    Did a Key Off draw test with the following results:

    Looks like the draw is 8.0 amps (it ranged from 2 to 8 amps, the door was open) even with the door not open it still ranged from 2 to 8 amps and it stayed at 8amps

    Here is the stock battery specs: http://www.oewarehouse.com/item.wws?...IONAL&weight=8

    660 CCA
    Capacity 80ah

    Thinking about getting a Lifepo Battery

    Anyone looking for a DIY on the battery Swap just use a screw driver (in the 2nd pic) and push outwards to get that tray off the stock battery.

    PS. I did confirmed I have a 6amp parasitic drain somewhere
