I ran into the same problem after I installed a 2002 SID in my 2001 9-5. After searching around on multiple forums and going through every possible menu on my Tech 2, I was forced to come to the conclusion that there is no fix for that, despite what some people say. What I was able to do was to simply unplug the level sensor plug on the car, which made it think that the reservoir was always full. Since the polarity is reversed on your car, which is the cause of all this, you'd have to install a jumper on the plug if you just don't want to see that message again. I eventually found a nearly mint condition SID from the correct year at a local Pick-n-Pull and now everything works as it should.
