Anyone know what my car is trying to tell me??

If I turn the key on and leave it for a few seconds the Cel starts to blink...It blinks 4 times. I know this isnt a true Diagnostic tool. And it is more than likely just a starting point.

Is that clearable with disconnecting the battery? I fixed all the fans and such. The temp gauge seems to work correctly.

And thanks Mike...Maybe this could be made a stickey....It isnt anywhere in the 9000 forums....Till now that is.

I don't know if its clearable just by disconnecting the battery. You might need an isat/tech2 to clear the code....or a new coolant temp sensor.

From saab9000.com....

Procedure (DI/APC)

To obtain a fault code reading:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the Drive position without starting the engine.
2. In about two seconds the CHECK ENGINE light will go out for about 2 seconds. It will then begin flashing the fault code.

Fault codes (DI/APC)

Fault code/ Fault
2 Internal memory check failed

3 Watchdog (control module fault).
May also be caused by a defective spark plug or ignition module.

4 Knock sensor

5 Engine load signal from LH or MAP sensor incorrect
