A child in a rear-facing child restraint can be seriously injured or killed if the right front passenger airbag inates. This is because the back of the rear-facing child restraint would be very close to the inating airbag. A child in a forward-facing child restraint can be seriously injured or killed if the right front passenger airbag inates and the passenger seat is in a forward position. Even if the passenger sensing system has turned off the right front passenger frontal airbag, no system is fail-safe. No one can guarantee that an airbag will not deploy under some unusual circumstance, even though the airbag is turned off. Secure rear-facing child restraints in a rear seat, even if the airbag is off. If you secure a forward-facing child restraint in the right front seat, always move the front passenger seat as far back as it will go. It is better to secure the child restraint in a rear seat.
The passenger sensing system is designed to turn off the right front passenger frontal airbag if:
The right front passenger seat is unoccupied. The system determines that an infant is present in
a rear-facing infant seat.
When the passenger sensing system has allowed the airbag to be enabled, the on indicator will light and stay lit to remind you that the airbag is active. For some children who have outgrown child restraints and for very small adults, the passenger sensing system may or may not turn off the right front passenger frontal airbag, depending upon the persons seating posture and body build. Everyone in the vehicle who has outgrown child restraints should wear a safety belt properly whether or not there is an airbag for that person.
The system determines that a small child is present

in a child restraint.

in a booster seat.
A right front passenger takes his/her weight off of
the seat for a period of time.
The right front passenger seat is occupied by a
smaller person, such as a child who has outgrown child restraints.
If the airbag readiness light ever comes on and stays on, it means that something may be wrong with the airbag system. To help avoid injury to yourself or others, have the vehicle serviced right away. See Airbag Readiness Light on page 3-28 for more information, including important safety information.

be blocking the signal. Take a few steps to the left or right, hold the transmitter higher, and try again.
Check the transmitters battery. See Battery
Replacement later in this section.
If the transmitter is still not working correctly,
see your dealer/retailer or a qualied technician for service.
Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) System Operation
The Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter functions work up to 30 feet (9 m) away from the vehicle. The RKE transmitter buttons do not operate when the key is in the ignition.
K (Unlock): Press once to unlock the driver door. The parking lamps may ash and the interior lights come on. Press K again and all remaining doors unlock.
To program different feedback settings through the Driver Information Center (DIC), see Driver Information Center (DIC) on page 3-42. Press to sound the horn. The headlamps and taillamps ash for up to 30 seconds. To turn the alarm off, press L again, or wait 30 seconds, or start the vehicle.

L (Panic Alarm):

Programming Transmitters to the Vehicle
Only RKE transmitters programmed to the vehicle will work. If a transmitter is lost or stolen, a replacement can be purchased and programmed through your dealer/retailer. When the replacement transmitter is programmed to the vehicle, all remaining transmitters must also be programmed. Any lost or stolen transmitters no longer work once the new transmitter is programmed. Each vehicle can have up to four transmitters programmed to it.

To replace the battery:

Battery Replacement
Replace the battery if the KEY FOB # BATTERY LOW message displays in the DIC. See KEY FOB # BATTERY LOW under DIC Warnings and Messages on page 3-45. Notice: When replacing the battery, do not touch any of the circuitry on the transmitter. Static from your body could damage the transmitter.
1. Remove the screw from the back of the RKE cover to open the transmitter. 2. Remove the old battery. Do not use a metal object. 3. Insert the new battery. Replace with a CR2032 or equivalent battery. 4. Assemble the transmitter and replace the screw.

Doors and Locks

Door Locks
There are several ways to lock and unlock your vehicle. From the outside, use the remote keyless entry transmitter or the key. From the inside, slide the manual lever forward or rearward.
Unlocked doors can be dangerous. Passengers, especially children, can easily open the doors and fall out of a moving vehicle. When a door is locked, the handle will not open it. You increase the chance of being thrown out of the vehicle in a crash if the doors are not locked. So, wear safety belts properly and lock the doors whenever you drive. Young children who get into unlocked vehicles may be unable to get out. A child can be overcome by extreme heat and can suffer permanent injuries or even death from heat stroke. Always lock your vehicle whenever you leave it. Outsiders can easily enter through an unlocked door when you slow down or stop your vehicle. Locking your doors can help prevent this from happening.

Hazard Warning Flashers

Flash-To-Pass Feature. Information for these features is on the pages following. Hold the steering wheel and pull the lever toward you to change the position, then release the lever to lock. Do not adjust the steering wheel while driving. 3-6
Turn and Lane-Change Signals
An arrow on the instrument panel cluster ashes in the direction of the turn or lane change.
If the vehicle has a trailer towing option with added wiring for the trailer lamps, a turn signal asher is used. With this asher installed, the signal indicator ashes even if a turn signal bulb is burned out. Check the front and rear turn signal lamps regularly to make sure they are working.

Turn Signal On Chime

A chime sounds if the turn signal has been on 3/4 of a mile (1.2 km). Move the turn signal lever to off. Move the lever all the way up or down to signal a turn. Raise or lower the lever until the arrow starts to ash to signal a lane change. Hold it there until the lane change is complete. The lever returns to its starting position when it is released. If after signaling a turn or lane change the arrows ash rapidly or do not come on, a signal bulb could be burned out. Have the bulbs replaced. If the bulb is not burned out, check the fuse. See Fuses and Circuit Breakers on page 5-107.
Headlamp High/Low-Beam Changer
To change the headlamps from low to high beam, push the lever toward the instrument panel. To return to low-beam headlamps, pull the multifunction lever toward you. Then release it. When the high beams are on, this indicator light on the instrument panel cluster will also be on.

This light comes on during a malfunction in one of two ways: Light Flashing: A misre condition has been detected. A misre increases vehicle emissions and could damage the emission control system on the vehicle. Diagnosis and service might be required. To prevent more serious damage to the vehicle:
Reduce vehicle speed. Avoid hard accelerations. Avoid steep uphill grades. If towing a trailer, reduce the amount of cargo being hauled as soon as it is possible.
If the light continues to ash, when it is safe to do so, stop the vehicle. Find a safe place to park the vehicle. Turn the key off, wait at least 10 seconds, and restart the engine. If the light is still ashing, follow the previous steps and see your dealer/retailer for service as soon as possible.
Light On Steady: An emission control system malfunction has been detected on the vehicle. Diagnosis and service might be required. An emission system malfunction might be corrected by doing the following:
Make sure to fuel the vehicle with quality fuel.
Poor fuel quality causes the engine not to run as efficiently as designed and can cause: stalling after start-up, stalling when the vehicle is changed into gear, misring, hesitation on acceleration, or stumbling on acceleration. These conditions might go away once the engine is warmed up. If one or more of these conditions occurs, change the fuel brand used. It will require at least one full tank of the proper fuel to turn the light off. See Gasoline Octane on page 5-5. If none of the above have made the light turn off, your dealer/retailer can check the vehicle. The dealer/retailer has the proper test equipment and diagnostic tools to x any mechanical or electrical problems that might have developed.
Make sure the fuel cap is fully installed. See Filling
the Tank on page 5-8. The diagnostic system can determine if the fuel cap has been left off or improperly installed. A loose or missing fuel cap allows fuel to evaporate into the atmosphere. A few driving trips with the cap properly installed should turn the light off.
If the vehicle has been driven through a deep
puddle of water, the vehicles electrical system might be wet. The condition is usually corrected when the electrical system dries out. A few driving trips should turn the light off.
Emissions Inspection and Maintenance Programs
Some state/provincial and local governments have or might begin programs to inspect the emission control equipment on the vehicle. Failure to pass this inspection could prevent getting a vehicle registration. Here are some things to know to help the vehicle pass an inspection:

If the message is still displayed, or appears again when you begin driving, the brake system needs service. See your dealer/retailer.


On vehicles with the Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS), this message displays if a part on the TPMS is not working properly. The tire pressure light also ashes and then remains on during the same ignition cycle. See Tire Pressure Light on page 3-34. Several conditions may cause this message to appear. See Tire Pressure Monitor Operation on page 5-69 for more information. If the warning comes on and stays on, there may be a problem with the TPMS. See your dealer/retailer.
This message displays if there is a problem with the battery charging system. Under certain conditions, the charging system light may also turn on in the instrument panel cluster. See Charging System Light on page 3-30. The battery will not be charging at an optimal rate and the vehicle will lose the ability to enter the fuel economy mode. The vehicle is safe to drive, however you should have the electrical system checked by your dealer/retailer.


This message displays anytime the StabiliTrak system activates to maintain vehicle stability. Any combination of engine speed management, brake traction control, and stability control displays this message.


If this message displays, it means there may be a problem with the StabiliTrak system. If this message appears, try to reset the system by performing the following: stop; turn off the engine; then start the engine again. If this message still comes on, it means there is a problem. You should see your dealer/retailer for service. The vehicle is safe to drive, however, you do not have the benet of StabiliTrak, so reduce your speed and drive accordingly.


This message may display if driving conditions delay StabiliTrak system initialization. This is normal. Once the system initializes, this message will no longer be displayed on the DIC.

Radio Messages for XM Only
See XM Radio Messages on page 3-72 later in this section for further detail.

Playing a CD

Insert a CD partway into the slot, label side up. The player pulls it in and the CD should begin playing. To insert a CD with the ignition off, rst press the eject button or the DISP (display) knob. If the ignition or radio is turned off with a CD in the player, it stays in the player. When the ignition or radio is turned on, the CD starts to play where it stopped, if it was the last selected audio source.

Radio Reception

Frequency interference and static can occur during normal radio reception if items such as cell phone chargers, vehicle convenience accessories, and external electronic devices are plugged into the accessory power outlet. If there is interference or static, unplug the item from the accessory power outlet.

FM Stereo

FM signals only reach about 10 to 40 miles (16 to 65 km). Although the radio has a built-in electronic circuit that automatically works to reduce interference, some static can occur, especially around tall buildings or hills, causing the sound to fade in and out.
XM Satellite Radio Service gives digital radio reception from coast-to-coast in the 48 contiguous United States, and in Canada. Just as with FM, tall buildings or hills can interfere with satellite radio signals, causing the sound to fade in and out. In addition, traveling or standing under heavy foliage, bridges, garages, or tunnels may cause loss of the XM signal for a period of time.
The range for most AM stations is greater than for FM, especially at night. The longer range can cause station frequencies to interfere with each other. For better radio reception, most AM radio stations boost the power levels during the day, and then reduce these levels during the night. Static can also occur when things like storms and power lines interfere with radio reception. When this happens, try reducing the treble on the radio.

Cellular Phone Usage

Cellular phone usage may cause interference with the vehicles radio. This interference may occur when making or receiving phone calls, charging the phones battery, or simply having the phone on. This interference causes an increased level of static while listening to the radio. If static is received while listening to the radio, unplug the cellular phone and turn it off.
XM Satellite Radio Antenna System
The XM Satellite Radio antenna is located on the roof of the vehicle. Keep the antenna clear of obstructions for clear radio reception. If the vehicle has a sunroof, the performance of the XM system may be affected if the sunroof is open.

Fixed Mast Antenna

The xed mast antenna can withstand most car washes without being damaged. If the mast becomes slightly bent, straighten it out by hand. If the mast is badly bent, replace it. Occasionally check to make sure the antenna is tightened to its base. If tightening is required, tighten by hand until fully seated plus one quarter turn.

1. You can remove the radiator pressure cap when the cooling system, including the radiator pressure cap and upper radiator hose, is no longer hot. Turn the pressure cap slowly counterclockwise about one full turn. If you hear a hiss, wait for that to stop. A hiss means there is still some pressure left. 2. Then keep turning the pressure cap. Remove the pressure cap.
3. Fill the radiator with the proper DEX-COOL coolant mixture, up to the base of the ller neck. See Engine Coolant on page 5-30 for more information about the proper coolant mixture.
4. Then ll the coolant recovery tank to the FULL COLD mark. 5. Put the cap back on the coolant recovery tank, but leave the radiator pressure cap off.
Notice: If the pressure cap is not tightly installed, coolant loss and possible engine damage may occur. Be sure the cap is properly and tightly secured.

Radiator Pressure Cap

Notice: If the pressure cap is not tightly installed, coolant loss and possible engine damage may occur. Be sure the cap is properly and tightly secured. See Engine Compartment Overview on page 5-12 for information on location.

Engine Overheating

6. Start the engine and let it run until you can feel the upper radiator hose getting hot. Watch out for the engine cooling fan. 7. By this time, the coolant level inside the radiator ller neck may be lower. If the level is lower, add more of the proper DEX-COOL coolant mixture through the ller neck until the level reaches the base of the ller neck. 8. Then replace the pressure cap. At any time during this procedure if coolant begins to ow out of the ller neck, reinstall the pressure cap. Be sure the pressure cap is hand-tight and fully seated. The vehicle has several indicators to warn of engine overheating. You will nd a coolant temperature gage on the vehicles instrument panel. See Engine Coolant Temperature Gage on page 3-33 for more information. If the vehicle has a Driver Information Center (DIC), the display will show an Engine Coolant Hot/Engine Overheated message. See DIC Warnings and Messages on page 3-45 for more information.

Load Index: An assigned number ranging from 1 to 279 that corresponds to the load carrying capacity of a tire. Maximum Ination Pressure: The maximum air pressure to which a cold tire can be inated. The maximum air pressure is molded onto the sidewall. Maximum Load Rating: The load rating for a tire at the maximum permissible ination pressure for that tire. Maximum Loaded Vehicle Weight: The sum of curb weight, accessory weight, vehicle capacity weight, and production options weight. Normal Occupant Weight: The number of occupants a vehicle is designed to seat multiplied by 150 lbs (68 kg). See Loading the Vehicle on page 4-21. Occupant Distribution: Designated seating positions. Outward Facing Sidewall: The side of an asymmetrical tire that has a particular side that faces outward when mounted on a vehicle. The side of the tire that contains a whitewall, bears white lettering, or bears manufacturer, brand, and/or model name molding that is higher or deeper than the same moldings on the other sidewall of the tire.
Passenger (P-Metric) Tire: A tire used on passenger cars and some light duty trucks and multipurpose vehicles. Recommended Ination Pressure: Vehicle manufacturers recommended tire ination pressure as shown on the tire placard. See Ination - Tire Pressure on page 5-65 and Loading the Vehicle on page 4-21. Radial Ply Tire: A pneumatic tire in which the ply cords that extend to the beads are laid at 90 degrees to the centerline of the tread. Rim: A metal support for a tire and upon which the tire beads are seated. Sidewall: The portion of a tire between the tread and the bead. Speed Rating: An alphanumeric code assigned to a tire indicating the maximum speed at which a tire can operate. Traction: The friction between the tire and the road surface. The amount of grip provided. Tread: The portion of a tire that comes into contact with the road.
Treadwear Indicators: Narrow bands, sometimes called wear bars, that show across the tread of a tire when only 1/16 inch (1.6 mm) of tread remains. See When It Is Time for New Tires on page 5-73. UTQGS (Uniform Tire Quality Grading Standards): A tire information system that provides consumers with ratings for a tires traction, temperature, and treadwear. Ratings are determined by tire manufacturers using government testing procedures. The ratings are molded into the sidewall of the tire. See Uniform Tire Quality Grading on page 5-76. Vehicle Capacity Weight: The number of designated seating positions multiplied by 150 lbs (68 kg) plus the rated cargo load. See Loading the Vehicle on page 4-21. Vehicle Maximum Load on the Tire: Load on an individual tire due to curb weight, accessory weight, occupant weight, and cargo weight. Vehicle Placard: A label permanently attached to a vehicle showing the vehicles capacity weight and the original equipment tire size and recommended ination pressure. See Tire and Loading Information Label under Loading the Vehicle on page 4-21.

Appearance Care

Interior Cleaning
The vehicles interior will continue to look its best if it is cleaned often. Although not always visible, dust and dirt can accumulate on the upholstery. Dirt can damage carpet, fabric, leather, and plastic surfaces. Regular vacuuming is recommended to remove particles from the upholstery. It is important to keep the upholstery from becoming and remaining heavily soiled. Soils should be removed as quickly as possible. The vehicles interior may experience extremes of heat that could cause stains to set rapidly. Lighter colored interiors may require more frequent cleaning. Use care because newspapers and garments that transfer color to home furnishings may also transfer color to the vehicles interior.
When cleaning the vehicles interior, only use cleaners specically designed for the surfaces being cleaned. Permanent damage may result from using cleaners on surfaces for which they were not intended. Use glass cleaner only on glass. Remove any accidental over-spray from other surfaces immediately. To prevent over-spray, apply cleaner directly to the cleaning cloth. Notice: Using abrasive cleaners when cleaning glass surfaces on the vehicle, could scratch the glass and/or cause damage to the rear window defogger. When cleaning the glass on the vehicle, use only a soft cloth and glass cleaner. Many cleaners contain solvents that may become concentrated in the vehicles breathing space. Before using cleaners, read and adhere to all safety instructions on the label. While cleaning the vehicles interior, maintain adequate ventilation by opening the vehicles doors and windows. Dust may be removed from small buttons and knobs using a small brush with soft bristles. Products that remove odors from the vehicles upholstery and clean the vehicles glass can be obtained from your dealer/retailer.
Do not clean the vehicle using:
A knife or any other sharp object to remove a soil
from any interior surface.
A stiff brush. It can cause damage to the vehicles

interior surfaces.

Heavy pressure or aggressive rubbing with a
cleaning cloth. Use of heavy pressure can damage the interior and does not improve the effectiveness of soil removal.
Laundry detergents or dishwashing soaps with
degreasers can leave residue that streaks and attracts dirt. For liquid cleaners, about 20 drops per gallon (3.78 L) of water is a good guide. Use only mild, neutral-pH soaps.
Too much cleaner that saturates the upholstery. Organic solvents such as naptha, alcohol, etc. that
can damage the vehicles interior.


To clean the tires, use a stiff brush with tire cleaner. Notice: Using petroleum-based tire dressing products on the vehicle may damage the paint nish and/or tires. When applying a tire dressing, always wipe off any overspray from all painted surfaces on the vehicle.

Underbody Maintenance

Chemicals used for ice and snow removal and dust control can collect on the underbody. If these are not removed, corrosion and rust can develop on the underbody parts such as fuel lines, frame, oor pan, and exhaust system even though they have corrosion protection. At least every spring, ush these materials from the underbody with plain water. Clean any areas where mud and debris can collect. Dirt packed in close areas of the frame should be loosened before being ushed. Your dealer/retailer or an underbody car washing system can do this.

Sheet Metal Damage

If the vehicle is damaged and requires sheet metal repair or replacement, make sure the body repair shop applies anti-corrosion material to parts repaired or replaced to restore corrosion protection. Original manufacturer replacement parts will provide the corrosion protection while maintaining the vehicle warranty.

Chemical Paint Spotting

Some weather and atmospheric conditions can create a chemical fallout. Airborne pollutants can fall upon and attack painted surfaces on the vehicle. This damage can take two forms: blotchy, ring-shaped discolorations, and small, irregular dark spots etched into the paint surface. Although no defect in the paint job causes this, Saab will repair, at no charge to the owner, the surfaces of new vehicles damaged by this fallout condition within 12 months or 12,000 miles (km) of purchase, whichever occurs rst.

Finish Damage

Any stone chips, fractures or deep scratches in the nish should be repaired right away. Bare metal will corrode quickly and may develop into major repair expense. Minor chips and scratches can be repaired with touch-up materials available from your dealer/retailer. Larger areas of nish damage can be corrected in your dealers/retailers body and paint shop. 5-104

If your vehicle has a rear seat that will accommodate a rear-facing child restraint, a label on your sun visor says, Never put a rear-facing child seat in the front. This is because the risk to the rear-facing child is so great, if the airbag deploys.
A child in a rear-facing child restraint can be seriously injured or killed if the right front passengers airbag inates. This is because the back of the rear-facing child restraint would be very close to the inating airbag. Even though the passenger sensing system is designed to turn off the passengers frontal airbag if the system CAUTION: (Continued)
detects a rear-facing child restraint, no system is fail-safe, and no one can guarantee that an airbag will not deploy under some unusual circumstance, even though it is turned off. We recommend that rear-facing child restraints be secured in the rear seat, even if the airbag is off. If you need to secure a forward-facing child restraint in the right front seat, always move the front passenger seat as far back as it will go. It is better to secure the child restraint in a rear seat.
A child in a rear-facing child restraint can be seriously injured or killed if the right front passengers airbag inates. This is because the back of the rear-facing child restraint would be very close to the inating airbag. Be sure the airbag is off before using a rear-facing child restraint in the right front seat position. Even though the passenger sensing system is designed to turn off the passengers frontal airbag if the system detects a rear-facing child restraint, no system is fail-safe, and no one can CAUTION: (Continued)
guarantee that an airbag will not deploy under some unusual circumstance, even though it is turned off. We recommend that rear-facing child restraints be transported in vehicles with a rear seat that will accommodate a rear-facing child restraint, whenever possible. If you need to secure a forward-facing child restraint in the right front seat, always move the front passenger seat as far back as it will go. It is better to secure the child restraint in a rear seat. The passenger sensing system is designed to turn off the right front passengers frontal airbag if: The right front passenger seat is unoccupied. The system determines that an infant is present in a rear-facing infant seat. The system determines that a small child is present in a forward-facing child restraint. 77

Engine Exhaust

Engine exhaust can kill. It contains the gas carbon monoxide (CO), which you cannot see or smell. It can cause unconsciousness and death. You might have exhaust coming in if: Your exhaust system sounds strange or different. Your vehicle gets rusty underneath. Your vehicle was damaged in a collision. CAUTION: (Continued)
Your vehicle was damaged when
driving over high points on the road or over road debris. Repairs were not done correctly. Your vehicle or exhaust system has been modied improperly. If you ever suspect exhaust is coming into your vehicle: Drive it only with all the windows down to blow out any CO; and Have your vehicle xed immediately.
Running the Engine While Parked
It is better not to park with the engine running. But if you ever have to, here are some things to know.
It can be dangerous to get out of your vehicle if the shift lever is not fully in PARK (P) with the parking brake rmly set. Your vehicle can roll. Do not leave your vehicle when the engine is running unless you have to. If you have left the engine running, the vehicle can move suddenly. You or others could be injured. To be sure your vehicle will not move, even when you are on fairly level ground, always set your parking brake and move the shift lever to PARK (P). Follow the proper steps to be sure your vehicle will not move. See Shifting Into Park (P) on page 117. If you are pulling a trailer, see Towing a Trailer on page 305.
Idling the engine with the climate control system off could allow dangerous exhaust into your vehicle. See the earlier caution under Engine Exhaust on page 119. Also, idling in a closed-in place can let deadly carbon monoxide (CO) into your vehicle even if the climate control fan is at the highest setting. One place this can happen is a garage. Exhaust with CO can come in easily. NEVER park in a garage with the engine running. Another closed-in place can be a blizzard. See Winter Driving on page 291.


Automatic Dimming Rearview Mirror with OnStar and Compass
Your vehicle may have an automatic-dimming rearview mirror with a compass and the OnStar system. There are three additional buttons for the OnStar system. See your dealer for more information on the system and how to subscribe to OnStar. See OnStar System on page 125 for more information about the services OnStar provides.
Automatic Dimming Mirror Operation
The automatic dimming mirror function is turned on automatically each time the ignition is started. To operate the automatic dimming mirror, do the following: 1. Make sure the indicator light, located to the left of the on/off button, is lit. If its not, press and hold the on/off button until the light comes on, indicating that the mirror is in automatic dimming mode. 2. Turn off the automatic dimming mirror function by pressing and holding the on/off button until the indicator light turns off.

9 (Off): Put the lever in this position to turn off

the wipers.

& (Delay): Put the lever in this position to set a delay between wipes. Turn the delay adjustment band to set the length of the delay.

Windshield Washer

L (Windshield Washer): To spray washer uid on the windshield, press the windshield washer paddle. The wipers will clear the window and then either stop or return to your preset speed.
This control is located to the left of the steering wheel on the instrument panel.
In freezing weather, do not use your washer until the windshield is warmed. Otherwise the washer uid can form ice on the windshield, blocking your vision. To turn the rear wiper on, turn the control to either 1, 2, or 3. For delayed wiping, turn the control to 1 or 2. For steady wiping, turn the control to 3. To turn the wiper off, turn the control to 0. To wash the rear window, press the washer symbol located in the center of the control. The rear window washer uses the same uid bottle as the windshield washer. However, the rear window washer will run out of uid before the windshield washer. If you can wash your windshield but not your rear window, check the uid level.

Rear Window Wiper/Washer

In freezing weather, do not use your washer until the windshield is warmed. Otherwise the washer uid can form ice on the windshield, blocking your vision.

Headlamp Washer

Your vehicle may be equipped with a headlamp washer system. The headlamp washers clear debris from the headlamp lenses by soaking the lens with uid, waiting for about ve seconds, then rinsing the loose debris from the lenses. The headlamp washers are located under the headlamps. The headlamp washers activate for one wash-wait-rinse cycle when the front windshield washer button is pressed for the rst time after your vehicle is turned on. The headlamps washers then activate automatically for one cycle after every four front windshield washes. The headlamps must be on to be washed. If the headlamps are off, only the front windshield will be washed. See Windshield Washer on page 155 for more information.

you reach the lower speed you want, then release it. To slow down in very small amounts, briey press the set button. Each time you do this, you will go about 1 mph (1.6 km/h) slower. 158
Passing Another Vehicle While Using Cruise Control
Use the accelerator pedal to increase your speed. When you take your foot off the pedal, your vehicle will slow down to the cruise control speed you set earlier.

Ending Cruise Control

To turn off the cruise control, do one of the following: Step lightly on the brake pedal, move the cruise control switch to off, or shift the transmission to NEUTRAL (N). If your vehicle has the StabiliTrak feature, cruise control will turn off if road conditions cause StabiliTrak to activate. If the accelerator pedal is held longer than 60 seconds, cruise control will turn off. The cruise control will turn off automatically if the traction control system or StabiliTrak system activate, if your vehicle is equipped with either feature.
Using Cruise Control on Hills
How well your cruise control will work on hills depends upon your speed, load and the steepness of the hills. When going up steep hills, you may want to step on the accelerator pedal to maintain your speed. When going downhill, you may have to brake or shift to a lower gear to keep your speed down. Of course, applying the brake takes you out of cruise control. Many drivers nd this to be too much trouble and do not use cruise control on steep hills.

Erasing Speed Memory

When you turn off the cruise control or the ignition, your cruise control set speed memory is erased.


The exterior lamp control is located in the middle of the turn signal/multifunction lever. See Turn Signal/Multifunction Lever on page 151.

turn off the Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) and Automatic Headlamps. Turning the control to this position again turns the automatic lighting system back on. This feature is not available for vehicles rst sold in Canada. AUTO (Automatic): Turn the control to this position to put the headlamps in automatic mode. AUTO mode will turn the exterior lamps on and off depending upon how much light is available outside of the vehicle.

To change the batteries, do the following: 1. Loosen the screw on the battery compartment door located on the left side of the headphone earpiece. 2. Replace the two AAA batteries in the compartment. Make sure that they are installed correctly, using the diagram on the inside of the battery compartment. 3. Tighten the screw to close the compartment door. If the headphones are to be stored for a long period of time, remove the batteries and keep them in a cool, dry place.

Stereo RCA Jacks

The RCA jacks are located behind the video screen. The RCA jacks allow audio and video signals to be connected from an auxiliary device such as a camcorder or a video game unit to the RSE system. Standard RCA cables, not included, are needed to connect the auxiliary device to the RCA jacks. The yellow connector inputs video and the red and white connectors input right and left audio. Refer to the manufacturers instructions for proper connection of the auxiliary device. To use the auxiliary inputs on the RSE system, connect an external auxiliary device to the color-coded RCA jacks and turn both the auxiliary device and the RSE system power on. If the RSE system had been previously in the DVD player mode, pressing the SRCE button on the faceplate or the remote control will switch the RSE system between the auxiliary device and the DVD player.
How to Change the Video Format when in the Auxiliary Mode
The auxiliary input video format is preset to NTSC. In some countries, the video format may be in the PAL system. To change the video format, perform the following: 1. Press the display menu button. 2. Press the down arrow button to highlight the Video Format option. 3. Press the enter button to select Video Format. 4. Press the right or left arrow button to select the desired video format. 5. Press the enter button to accept the change.

Audio Output

Audio from the DVD player or auxiliary inputs may be heard through the following possible sources: Wireless Headphones Vehicle Speakers Vehicle wired headphone jacks on the Rear Seat Audio system (if equipped)
The RSE system will always transmit the audio signal by infrared to the wireless headphones, if there is audio available. See Headphones previously for more information. The RSE system is capable of outputting audio to the vehicle speakers by using the radio. The RSE system may be selected as an audio source on the radio if the RSE system power is on. Once the RSE system is selected as an audio source on the radio, adjust the speaker volume on the radio, if necessary. If the RSE system power is not on, the RSE system will not be an available source on the radio. Refer to the radio information for the radio that your vehicle has for more information. The RSE system is capable of outputting audio to the wired headphone jacks on the rear seat audio system (if equipped). The RSE system may be selected as an audio source on the rear seat audio system if the RSE system power is on. Refer to XXX for more information.

All-Wheel Drive (AWD) System
Your vehicle has this feature. There is no lever or switch to engage or disengage the front axle. It is fully automatic and adjusts as needed for road conditions. Your vehicle has an active transfer case allowing two-wheel-drive operation on dry roads. The transfer case will shift automatically into all-wheel drive on slippery surfaces. You may feel an extra shift when the all-wheel drive engages. 275


Power Steering
If you lose power steering assist because the engine stops or the system is not functioning, you can steer but it will take much more effort.
Suppose you are steering through a sharp curve. Then you suddenly accelerate. Both control systems steering and acceleration have to do their work where the tires meet the road. Adding the sudden acceleration can demand too much of those places. You can lose control. What should you do if this ever happens? Ease up on the accelerator pedal, steer the vehicle the way you want it to go, and slow down. Speed limit signs near curves warn that you should adjust your speed. Of course, the posted speeds are based on good weather and road conditions. Under less favorable conditions you will want to go slower. If you need to reduce your speed as you approach a curve, do it before you enter the curve, while your front wheels are straight ahead. Try to adjust your speed so you can drive through the curve. Maintain a reasonable, steady speed. Wait to accelerate until you are out of the curve, and then accelerate gently into the straightaway. Adding non-Saab accessories can affect your vehicles performance. See Accessories and Modications on page 322.

Steering Tips

It is important to take curves at a reasonable speed. A lot of the driver lost control accidents mentioned on the news happen on curves. Here is why: Experienced driver or beginner, each of us is subject to the same laws of physics when driving on curves. The traction of the tires against the road surface makes it possible for the vehicle to change its path when you turn the front wheels. If there is no traction, inertia will keep the vehicle going in the same direction. If you have ever tried to steer a vehicle on wet ice, you will understand this. The traction you can get in a curve depends on the condition of your tires and the road surface, the angle at which the curve is banked, and your speed. While you are in a curve, speed is the one factor you can control. 276

Steering in Emergencies

There are times when steering can be more effective than braking. For example, you come over a hill and nd a truck stopped in your lane, or a car suddenly pulls out from nowhere, or a child darts out from between parked cars and stops right in front of you. You can avoid these problems by braking if you can stop in time. But sometimes you cannot; there is not room. That is the time for evasive action steering around the problem. Your vehicle can perform very well in emergencies like these. First apply your brakes. See Braking on page 268. It is better to remove as much speed as you can from a possible collision. Then steer around the problem, to the left or right depending on the space available. An emergency like this requires close attention and a quick decision. If you are holding the steering wheel at the recommended 9 and 3 oclock positions, you can turn it a full 180 degrees very quickly without removing either hand. But you have to act fast, steer quickly, and just as quickly straighten the wheel once you have avoided the object. The fact that such emergency situations are always possible is a good reason to practice defensive driving at all times and wear safety belts properly.

One of the biggest problems with city streets is the amount of traffic on them. You will want to watch out for what the other drivers are doing and pay attention to traffic signals.

Freeway Driving

The most important advice on freeway driving is: Keep up with traffic and keep to the right. Drive at the same speed most of the other drivers are driving. Too-fast or too-slow driving breaks a smooth traffic ow. Treat the left lane on a freeway as a passing lane. At the entrance, there is usually a ramp that leads to the freeway. If you have a clear view of the freeway as you drive along the entrance ramp, you should begin to check traffic. Try to determine where you expect to blend with the ow. Try to merge into the gap at close to the prevailing speed. Switch on your turn signal, check your mirrors, and glance over your shoulder as often as necessary. Try to blend smoothly with the traffic ow. Once you are on the freeway, adjust your speed to the posted limit or to the prevailing rate if it is slower. Stay in the right lane unless you want to pass. Before changing lanes, check your mirrors. Then use your turn signal. Just before you leave the lane, glance quickly over your shoulder to make sure there is not another vehicle in your blind spot.
Mile for mile, freeways also called thruways, parkways, expressways, turnpikes, or superhighways are the safest of all roads. But they have their own special rules.
Once you are moving on the freeway, make certain you allow a reasonable following distance. Expect to move slightly slower at night. When you want to leave the freeway, move to the proper lane well in advance. If you miss your exit, do not, under any circumstances, stop and back up. Drive on to the next exit. The exit ramp can be curved, sometimes quite sharply. The exit speed is usually posted. Reduce your speed according to your speedometer, not to your sense of motion. After driving for any distance at higher speeds, you may tend to think you are going slower than you actually are.
Is your vehicle ready for a long trip? If you keep it serviced and maintained, it is ready to go. If it needs service, have it done before starting out. Of course, you will nd experienced and able service experts in dealerships all across North America. They will be ready and willing to help if you need it. Here are some things you can check before a trip: Windshield Washer Fluid: Is the reservoir full? Are all windows clean inside and outside? Wiper Blades: Are they in good shape? Fuel, Engine Oil, Other Fluids: Have you checked all levels? Lamps: Are they all working? Are the lenses clean? Tires: They are vitally important to a safe, trouble-free trip. Is the tread good enough for long-distance driving? Are the tires all inated to the recommended pressure? Weather Forecasts: What is the weather outlook along your route? Should you delay your trip a short time to avoid a major storm system? Maps: Do you have up-to-date maps?

You can expect tongue weight to be at least 10 percent of trailer weight (850 lbs (386 kg)) and because the weight is applied well behind the rear axle, the effect on the rear axle will be greater than just the weight itself, as much as 1.5 times as much. The weight at the rear axle could be 850 lbs (386 kg) X 1.5 = 1,275 lbs (578 kg). Since the rear axle already weighs 2,700 lbs (kg), adding 1,275 lbs (578 kg) brings the total to 3,975 lbs (kg). This is very close to, but within the limit for RGAWR as well. The vehicle is set to trailer up to 8,500 lbs (kg).
But lets say your specic vehicle is equipped with some of the latest options and you have a front seat passenger and two rear seat passengers with some luggage and gear in the vehicle as well. You may add 300 lbs (136 kg) to the front axle weight and 400 lbs (181 kg) to the rear axle weight. Your vehicle now weighs:
You may go further and think you must limit tongue weight to less than 1,000 lbs (454 kg) to avoid exceeding GVWR. But, you must still consider the effect on the rear axle. Because your rear axle now weighs 3,100 lbs (kg), you can only put 900 lbs (408 kg) on the rear axle without exceeding RGAWR. The effect of tongue weight is about 1.5 times the actual weight. Dividing the 900 lbs (408 kg) by 1.5 leaves you with being able to handle only 600 lbs (272 kg) of tongue weight. Since tongue weight is usually at least 10 percent of total loaded trailer weight, you can expect that the largest trailer your vehicle can properly handle is 6,000 lbs (kg). It is important that you make sure your vehicle does not exceed any of its ratings GCWR, GVWR, RGAWR, Maximum Trailer Rating or Tongue Weight. The only way to be sure you are not exceeding any of these ratings is to weigh your vehicle and trailer.
Weight is still below 7,200 lbs (kg) and you may think that you should subtract 700 additional pounds (318 kg) from your trailering capacity to stay within GCWR limits. Your maximum trailer would only be 7,800 lbs (kg).
Total Weight on Your Vehicles Tires
Be sure your vehicles tires are inated to the upper limit for cold tires. Youll nd these numbers on the Certication label at the rear edge of the drivers door or see Loading Your Vehicle on page 296 for more information. Then be sure you dont go over the GVW limit for your vehicle, or the GAWR, including the weight of the trailer tongue. If you use a weight distributing hitch, make sure you dont go over the rear axle limit before you apply the weight distribution spring bars.
Weight Distributing Hitches and Weight Carrying Hitches


Its important to have the correct hitch equipment. Crosswinds, large trucks going by and rough roads are a few reasons why youll need the right hitch.

3. Check both sides of the dipstick, and read the lower level. The uid level must be in the COLD area, below the cross-hatched area, for a cold check or in the HOT or cross-hatched area for a hot check. Be sure to keep the dipstick pointed down to get an accurate reading. 4. If the uid level is in the acceptable range, reinstall the dipstick back in all the way; then ip the handle down to lock the dipstick in place.

Consistency of Readings

Always check the uid level at least twice using the procedure described previously. Consistency (repeatable readings) is important to maintaining proper uid level. If inconsistent readings persist, contact your dealer.

Engine Coolant

The cooling system in your vehicle is lled with DEX-COOL engine coolant. This coolant is designed to remain in your vehicle for ve years or 150,000 miles (km), whichever occurs rst, if you add only DEX-COOL extended life coolant. The following explains your cooling system and how to add coolant when it is low. If you have a problem with engine overheating, see Engine Overheating on page 347. A 50/50 mixture of clean, drinkable water and DEX-COOL coolant will: Give freezing protection down to 34F (37C). Give boiling protection up to 265F (129C). Protect against rust and corrosion. Help keep the proper engine temperature. Let the warning lights and gages work as they should.
Notice: Using coolant other than DEX-COOL may cause premature engine, heater core, or radiator corrosion. In addition, the engine coolant may require changing sooner, at the rst maintenance service after each 30,000 miles (km) or 24 months, whichever occurs rst. Any repairs would not be covered by your warranty. Always use DEX-COOL (silicate-free) coolant in your vehicle.

What to Use

Use a mixture of one-half clean, drinkable water and one-half DEX-COOL coolant. If you use this coolant mixture, you do not need to add anything else.
Adding only plain water to your cooling system can be dangerous. Plain water, or some other liquid such as alcohol, can boil before the proper coolant mixture will. Your vehicles coolant warning system is set for the proper coolant mixture. With plain water or the wrong mixture, your engine could get too hot but you would not get the overheat warning. Your engine could catch re and you or others could be burned. Use a 50/50 mixture of clean, drinkable water and DEX-COOL coolant.

Storing a jack, a tire, or other equipment in the passenger compartment of the vehicle could cause injury. In a sudden stop or collision, loose equipment could strike someone. Store all these in the proper place.
Follow this diagram to store the underbody-mounted at or spare tire. A. B. C. D. E. Wheel Wrench Hoist Shaft Extension Retainer Spare or Flat Tire (Valve Stem Pointed Up)
3. Make sure the valve stem is pointed up and to the rear. Then pull the retainer (D) through the wheel opening. 4. Put the socket end of the extension (C) through the hole just above the rear bumper at a 45 degree downward angle. Connect the socket end of the extension to the hoist shaft (B). 5. Raise the tire fully against the underside of the vehicle. Continue turning the wheel wrench (A) clockwise until you hear two clicks or feel it skip twice. This indicates that the tire is secure and the cable is tight. The spare tire hoist cannot be overtightened.
1. Put the tire (E) on the ground at the rear of the vehicle. 2. Remove the wheel cap, if the vehicle has one, from the at tire by tapping the backside of the wheel cap with the wheel wrench (A). Store in a safe location until the at tire is repaired. Once the tire is repaired, replace the wheel cap.
6. Make sure the tire is stored securely. Push, pull (A), and then try to turn (B) the tire. If the tire moves, use the wheel wrench and socket end of the extension to tighten the cable. 7. Return the equipment to the proper location in the vehicle as shown next.
A. Handle B. Wheel Wrench C. Instruction Label
D. Extension E. Knob F. Wheel Blocks and Jack
1. Attach the handle (A), wheel wrench (B) and extension (D) in the slots provided. 2. Roll up the instruction label (C) and return to the slot in the tool kit. 3. Assemble the wheel blocks (F) to the jack. 4. Turn the knob (E) on the jack clockwise to raise the jack head. 5. Return the rear seat to its proper position.

Spare Tire

Your vehicle, when new, had a fully-inated spare tire. A spare tire may lose air over time, so check its ination pressure regularly. See Ination - Tire Pressure on page 388 and Loading Your Vehicle on page 296 for information regarding proper tire ination and loading your vehicle. For instruction on how to remove, install or store a spare tire, see Removing the Flat Tire and Installing the Spare Tire on page 410 and Storing a Flat or Spare Tire and Tools on page 420. After installing the spare tire on your vehicle, you should stop as soon as possible and make sure the spare is correctly inated. The spare tire is made to perform well at speeds up to 70 mph (112 km/h) at the recommended ination pressure, so you can nish your trip. Have the damaged or at road tire repaired or replaced as soon as you can and installed back onto your vehicle. This way, a spare tire will be available in case you need it again. Do not mix tires and wheels of different sizes, because they will not t. Keep your spare tire and its wheel together.

Roadside Assistance is not part of or included in the coverage provided by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Saab and General Motors of Canada Limited reserve the right to make any changes or discontinue the Roadside Assistance program at any time without notication.
Towing and Road Service Exclusions
Specically excluded from Roadside Assistance coverage are towing or services for vehicles operated on a non-public roadway or highway, nes, impound towing caused by a violation of local, Municipal, State, Provincial, or Federal law, and mounting, dismounting or changing of snow tires, chains, or other traction devices.
Vehicle Data Collection and Event Data Recorders
Your vehicle, like other modern motor vehicles, has a number of sophisticated computer systems that monitor and control several aspects of the vehicles performance. Your vehicle uses on-board vehicle computers to monitor emission control components to optimize fuel economy, to monitor conditions for airbag deployment and, if so equipped, to provide anti-lock braking and to help the driver control the vehicle in difficult driving situations. Some information may be stored during regular operations to facilitate repair of detected malfunctions; other information is stored only in a crash event by computer systems, such as those commonly called event data recorders (EDR). In a crash event, computer systems, such as the Airbag Sensing and Diagnostic Module (SDM) in your vehicle may record information about the condition of the vehicle and how it was operated, such as data related to engine speed, brake application, throttle position, vehicle speed, safety belt usage, airbag readiness, airbag performance,
and the severity of a collision. If your vehicle is equipped with StabiliTrak, steering performance, including yaw rate, steering wheel angle, and lateral acceleration, is also recorded. This information has been used to improve vehicle crash performance and may be used to improve crash performance of future vehicles and driving safety. Unlike the data recorders on many airplanes, these on-board systems do not record sounds, such as conversation of vehicle occupants. To read this information, special equipment is needed and access to the vehicle or the device that stores the data is required. Saab will not access information about a crash event or share it with others other than: with the consent of the vehicle owner or, if the vehicle is leased, with the consent of the lessee, in response to an official request of police or similar government office, as part of Saabs defense of litigation through the discovery process, or as required by law.
In addition, once Saab collects or receives data, Saab may: use the data for Saab research needs, make it available for research where appropriate condentiality is to be maintained and need is shown, or share summary data which is not tied to a specic vehicle with non-Saab organizations for research purposes. Others, such as law enforcement, may have access to the special equipment that can read the information if they have access to the vehicle or the device that stores the data. If your vehicle is equipped with OnStar, please check the OnStar subscription service agreement or manual for information on its operations and data collection.
