    Saw this in a late 90's Mitsubishi about 15 years ago and after the second tranny we found the bad tranny control module.

    Thanks for the response the shop decide to replace the battery and reprogrammed the tcm.
    I'm going in the morning at 8am when they open and take it for a spin.... this time with someone following me, the other day was my first run with it nonetheless battery died and ran out of gas in dam near the middle of no where (deff not fun) 2 very nice people helped and I was able to get back to the shop at which point was closed but just parked it and left a note. I would've had it back today but got out of work to late they were closed by then.
    I will deff give an update on how tomorrow goes.
    Thanks again

    Picked up my 03 9-5 and so far so good drove about 60miles today with no issues usually it would've already gave me some problem but nope she's running strong.... there's deff some weird noises that are new to me it deff was a quieter idle but it has come apart and not ran in about 2nahalf months I'll get under it to really look at my exhaust and around the firewall I hear what I think might be a vacuum leak but I'll keep driving to see if any codes pop up

    ALSO the mechanic told me when ever transmissions are swapped in Saabs they need the tcm flashed/reprogrammed or something like that... anyone else ever heard of this??

    Not just Saab, can't think of a new car that doesn't and most 15 year old cars do. Spooky TCM side note is that sometimes the thousand little voltage surges of connecting the battery cable in a newer car can confuse any module and put the TCM into training mode which can ruin a tranny if you don't drive out the training sequence.
