Thanks, Bob... I guess will try to resolder the whole unit.. A replacement ECU is not done here in Holland.... I just can't get my hands on one, not even at the two specialised Saab junkers in my country... I guess they break down a lot!. All of you, thanks for the advice; i'm going to heat up my iron... ;-) Cheers Rob "Nasty Bob" <> schreef in bericht news:uVKYc.83672$ > I have a weird problem with the cruise control on my 9000CSE (1994).
