If the battery was unconnected at some time the system might be confused. You might try reprogamming the ACC unit by holding the top and bottom switches down for several seconds and releasing (the timeing has to be exact and it usually takes a couple of attempts). As far as the cupholders, I cut the window hook of some inexpensive plastic holders found at Advanced Auto and Velcroed one to the space to the left of the passenger air bag and one to the passenger door. I found wide self-adhesive Velcro strips at JoAnn Fabrics. Saab did offer a plastic bin that screws into holes on the passenger side of the center console near the floor but they want an arm and a leg for it. I am still looking for some slim container that would fit there. Good luck. R. Frist
