As SWEDECAR, points out, SAAB changed software (and the DIC) over 15 years ago so that now you are given some warning that the DIC is failing.
I made the mistake of trying an eBay DIC a long time ago and it started throwing CEL's within a year. I never repeated that mistake.
For TML, IF you indeed have a Chinese knock-off, I would be tempted to replace it with a new, OEMish, and keep it as a spare. At least if my 9-5 was my primary transportation or I had trips planned.
