  • Immobiliser


    Keyfob of a first-generation immobiliser Immobiliser sign An immobiliser or immobilizer is an electronic security device fitted to an automobile that prevents the engine from running unless the correct transponder car key (or other token) is present. This prevents the car from being "hot wired" after entry has been achieved and thus reduces motor vehicle theft. Research shows that the uniform application of immobilisers reduced the rate of car theft by 40%.

  • Saab Information Display


    SID in instrument cluster on a 2008 Turbo X.Saab Information Display (SID) later also called "Saab Car Computer" (SCC) is the name for various in-car computer systems found on most Saab automobiles beginning in 1985 with the Saab 9000 and followed in 1994 with the Saab 900 NG. SIDs typically provide functions useful to the driver such as multiple trip odometers, fuel efficiency, estimated range ("distance to empty" – DTE), current CD track or radio station, and also brief description of car system failures. SIDs designed prior to the full General Motors takeover of Saab in 2000 were mounted in the center console, usually just above the head unit and below climate control vents with the exception of 9000 models, possibly after the "facelift" in the early 1990s. The 9000 featured the SID on the standard instrument cluster, with a car pictogram, showing open doors/tailgate/boot (trunk), lamp failures and low oil pressure in red. If there were no warnings, the white pictogram would disappear. To the right of this was the data display in orange with green background data.
