How to reset a saab after a battery replacement

Updated July 20, 2017

Saab is a Sweden car manufacturer known for producing compact and classy vehicles. Once you remove the battery and install a new one, the air bag service light will light up on the Saab's dashboard; you must reset the light for it to go out. Using a Service Light Plus Airbag Reset Tool, designed to work on Saabs, you can easily reset the air bag service.

Attach the reset tool to the Saab's data link connector, found under the dashboard.

Switch on the ignition.

Wait a few seconds for the light on the reset tool to light up, and use the tool's scroll buttons to select "Saab."

Press the reset tool's "OK" button.

Choose the specific model of the Saab with the tool's scroll buttons, and select "OK."

Use the scroll buttons to find "Reset of Airbag," then select "OK."

Wait for the tool's screen to read "Reset OK!"

Switch off the Saab's ignition, and detach the reset tool from the vehicle.
