Vehicle Description: Passenger vehicles. Moisture can enter the inflatable
restraint electronic control module (ECM) and cause corrosion on portions of the ECM
printer circuit boards.
This corrosion can possibly create open
connections in circuits which control the restraint deployment, possibly causing
inadvertent air bag deployment.
Dealers will inspect the exterior of the ECM. If there is no indication of
moisture, a cover will be installed over the ECM. If there is indication of moisture, the
dealer will replace the ECM and install a cover over the new ECM. Owner notification is
expected to beginJune 30, 1999. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on
an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time
should contact Saab at 1-800-955-9007. Also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration's Auto Safety Hotline at 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).
