It is not economically beneficial to just keep replacing switches. Besides, they are probably not the source. It is most certainly a ground. I do not have a schematic, but would start at the rear tail lights. I'd look through the archives at saabnet.com 9kbb and also on townsendimports.com to see if there is any pertinent information.
