Subject: 99 9-3 "Time for Service" went away by itself?

Recently bought a 99 9-3 5 door auto trans 71,000 mi. Monday morning the sid read "Time for Service" I consulted the owners manual and figured it couldn't be anything major and could wait (the nearest saab shop is 2 hours away). Friday morning the sid no longer says time for service after the cars ritual checking upon startup. The car is due for an oil change in 2 weeks and i'll replace the air filter as well. Does it gripe at you for an oil change, the manual doesn't seem to mention anything like this Being a new car onwner a few questions... The car runs great and everything works except the washer sprayer for the hackback window. Suggestions? When I turn the AC a rather nasty smell starts to come out the vents, is there a filter that should be changed? The car came with 2 standard keys and a programmed key w/ build in keyless entry from a 01 Saab, it doesn't have to seem much range, is this normal or does it need a battery replacement? Thanks, Mitch in Kentucky
