I noticed the engine warning light on as I drive away from my Saab dealer who'd just done some checks on the car. When I took it back, they said it was a DI cassette fault but it was no problem because they could change it under the recall notice. It seems an awfully big coincidence to me. If I had to guess, I'd say they left a connector off first time, and made up the DI story to cover the mistake... Cheers, Colin.
