    Unhappy TOC light, Brake light, Anti-lock brake light, red triangle light on?

    the other day, I repaired my SID display by using a iron to seal the connectors back down, added door insulation to apply pressure. It worked but now since I did that, from time to time the Traction Control light, Anti-lock brake light the red triangle light comes on and then the speedometer does not register. This happens when on the road. The turbo works the SID is works as well when this happens. I turn the car off and sometimes it clears it and sometimes it doesn't, Anyone out there have any answers?

    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 week. During the time it was being repaired I used my GPS for a speedometer. It won't hurt anything to drive around a week without it except you won't have ABS, traction control, or gauges.

    Thanks for the reply. I thought the work I did on the SID caused the problem. I will send it out for repair.

    Reply to ABS Module

    Thanks for the help. On my 1999 Saab 9-5, I had to there is also a third screw on the engine side of the fuse box. I was trying to take the box out but it would not move until that bolt was also unscrewed. I also had to take the battery out and the frame that the battery was on for clearance of the 5th and 6th screw. once I did that, the module came out. More information for anyone else with the same problem.
