If you go to: and check their service area, they have a little explanation of this very problem, including a couple of alternate possibilities. It happens that I bought my Saab from Andrews (I live in St. Paul) and I'd trust these guys. Biggest apparent reson is the use of an improper bulb in replacing of a rear light. Apparently, the system runs off of an amperage (voltage?) feedback loop, and the wrong type of bulb will cause the display to read incorrectly. If only they'd explain why my display is now completely dead -- unless I hit the brakes. Then it's on. Anyway, good luck. -- JimVerbose
