1989 was the year for the failures. Mostly, the LH computers work fine. It is just with the 1989 model year. 1989 900 non-turbo 2.0 box SAAB 7 48 71 35 SAAB reman 88 26 026 Bosch 0 280 000 564 Make sure that the 'new' box has the appropriate number and that you are not getting a NOS 'bad' part number. A used one will work as well, just don't get one from a 1989 unless it has the reman part number. Get it replaced and drive it a long while more. Don't give it up for a ProtÈgÈ. You WILL regret it!
