    I asked my SAAB sealer to check the availability at ORIO. It took almost 2 weeks until he got an answer from them: only four (!) left tail lights are at stock in the US.

    Looks like the normal Ebay vendor I was looking at a while back

    hammysauto | eBay

    Not sure if I will replace it or just try to fix it.

    I don't know that these numbers reflect total inventory.

    I bought a left tail light about a month ago ... there were 3 in the US at that time. After my purchase, there were 2.

    So ... I suspect they are getting resupplied here in USA to keep US inventory at a certain level.

    In any case, I don't think we need to panic yet.

    BTW ... I still don't understand why the left side eyebrow LEDs only fail at night. Mine display just fine during dusk and dawn conditions. I think it is the programming between whatever sensor makes the call and the car's computer, which sends that "on" signal to the LED in the back. The programming software driving that left side behavior is screwed up.

    Anyway, that's how I envision the fault flow.

    Please nobody pay for labor replacing these taillights. It is extremely easy. All you do is openthe trunk, pull off plastic cover which hides 2 screws. Remove screws. Pull entire taillights towards you as you stand behind the bumper(not left or right) and then disconnect the plastic connector. Now connect new one, push straight on, screw in 2 screws and snap plastic cover on. Total time should be 3 minutes.

    I am curious about how the leak was fixed with super glue. Could you elaborate on that? I still need to fix that issue.

    This is great to know. I was quoted 1-2 hours for labor from my SAAB Service Center...

    Thank you.

    So. I bought a new light because I know I wanted to get to the bottom of this issue. While I have not found a conclusion 100% I can say with certainty it is the electronic control board and nothing to do with the actual LED's. I removed the old tail light, removed all wiring from it, baked it in the oven and removed the lens and removed the LED bar. The LED's as shown work fine and I could not get any information to display on the multimeter for the actual circuit board. What I think the main issue is the LED circuit board plug is not epoxied and something (like water or dust) gets into it and causes havok. This is just my guess because as you can see clearly the one for the normal brake light bulbs and turn signal bulbs are soaked in epoxy. So before I installed my new light I epoxied it and made sure it was water proof. These are just my results so hopefully it can help.
