    Whatís the trick to re-seating the battery cover please?

    I think that I see what needs to happen, but my hands arenít finding the magic. Iím clear on the outer side of the battery case - the one thatís closer to the wheel, and itís like that wiper fluid cap wants to go through the hole, but..just not quite gettiní there.

    Also, is there something I must do to help the Saab get its mind right after having a dead battery...computer things to re-set, or can the Saab figure that out on her own?

    Thank you!

    The trick to getting the washer filler cap through the hole is to line the filler neck up with the hole, so give it a twist it is adjustable.

    Best way to avoid screwy electrical issues when the car sits for extended periods of time is to use a battery tender to maintain the charge. Quickest way to eliminate a bunch of screwy electrical issues after letting a battery go dead in the car is to give the car a complete system reset by pulling the NEG battery cable.
