We had a similar problem, but not as frequent, in our 1999 9-5 Wagon. The answer is in SAAB TAC document MICP-22900 3, dated 02/29/2000 which applies to 1999 and later 9-5 models. Your authorized dealer can get you a copy. In so many words, the ACC is "rebooting" to recalibrate. The TAC says this is normal, but that there is a new version of the ACC programming that minimizes the frequency and duration of this process. When we brought our car in to the dealer, they installed new programming. Now, all told I find this to be really quite amusing. I had to tell my (IBM) co-workers that I had to take my car's climate control in for a PTF. Does anyone know how to find out when updated versions of car software becomes available and what features is provides/changes? It also seems that the ability to lock the doors at 15MPH or so was removed in the now current security system software. -- David & Robin. -- Robin Disney Vacation Club member at Old Key West Parent to little Mouseketeer Celia, born 08/17/1999 Please reply to and remove "TIGGER".
