Bad computer?

Well, my dad just bought a 00 9-5 with 180k miles from our local dealer, it runs really strong but the only problem it has is that the speedo doesnt work all the time, and pretty much most of the lights like abs tcs cel are lit, the guys at the dealer said it needs a new computer, i did a bit of research and it seems that the abs computer triggers the speedo and the abs light, how much is it to replace? is it repairable or is it a replace only sort of thing, it has no effect on the way the car drives, any ideas?

Thanks

I didnt get mines rebuilt because I didn't have the time. Its a pretty easy installation. I went to car-parts.com and bought a ABS module with TCS from an 01 9-5 because anything later I believe is ESP. I installed it and all the light went bye bye.

I found this one, is this what i need? I have a 2000 9-5

2001 95 Electronic Chassis Control Modules
ABS ON PUMP/ACTUATOR Hollander Part# 591-64063

I also found this from another website, it seems cheaper, http://www.bba-reman.com/catalogue/D...ledProduct=365

It says i can remove my module and send it in, and its less than $200

I have a 2000 9-5 also I didnt get it from the Site. on the BBA-Reman site the 139 is to get it rebuilt and the 750 is if you want to purchase one without rebuilding your old one. I npaid $90 for mines and still no issues with that, make sure u get one from a 2001 though 9-5

Well if you went the route of getting one from car-parts.com then there is a better chance that they would have done more revisions on the module itself. Less chance of it going bunkers. Or you could just send yours in to BBA in which case you wouldn't be able to use your car for the time that your Module was getting repaired. But it's up to you.

As far as not being able to use the car, that doesnt really matter i have 4 other saabs in the driveway i think i will go that route just because i dont want to get a used unit and a few month down the road it craps out, by the looks of it it BBA offer a warranty on all their products and services, im gona do some more reading and searching, but most likely i will go down the rebuilt route, thanks for your help Saabblackman, really appreciate it

You can use your car while the module is out, just you will have not antilock... ( which you did not have with the broken one anyway)

Lots of peopels have used BBA for thsi and other repairs and they are 100% good

Just cover the area real tight with palstic and tape it up snug

That true. But I've also heard of modules that could not be repaired. (not saying thats the case for him. But he would have to cover up the solenoids really well to make sure that dust and stuff doesn't get inside of it. But like I siad it's up to him which ever route is he wants to go. the reason I did it the way I did was because I wasn't really much of a car person and I didn't want to run the car without it.
