I have a 2000 Saab 9.5 and I also have a BIG problem. There's some sort of electical problem that is causing the battery to draw too much power (over 1 amp) and the battery is always going dead. The mechanic replaced the DICE (Dash Intergrated Intergrated Central Electronics) and the ACC module was replaced. After that it was drawing .3 amps and it worked fine for a few days but then the exact same problem returned. The charging system has a 1.3 Amp draw and the new battery keeps going dead. Can someone tell me what is wrong? Thanks.

The Ignition Key cylinder commonly sticks and causes Dice to stay on, Sounds like you already Spent a Fortune to fix the Cheap Common Problem. A New Key cylinder barrell Coded to your car takes 6-8 weeks to get. With the Key out of the car and doors locked, Not Alarmed Just Locked, Leave the window open and Leave the car sit for over 20 minutes. After that 20 minutes reach through the window and see if you can still turn the radio on. If you can still turn the radio on the Dice is not turning off. Investigate key cylinder.
