The 9-3 SS is equipped with a lamp check system. A number of lamps will be checked by a pulse instead of the usual power measurement. This pulse measurement begins even before starting the vehicle, and ends some time after the removal of the key from the contact. Replacing light bulbs with LEDs thus leads to flashing lights before and after starting the engine.

Not all lamps are checked, the following lightswill cause a defect warning in the SID:

     Bulb, headlight, xenon
     Bulb, headlight
     Lamp, dipped
     Lamp, turn signals, front
     Lamp, rear foglight
     Light, parking light, rear
     Lamps rear
     Lamp, brake light
     third brake light

The lights will not cause a warning in the SID:

     Light, parking light, front
     Lamp, fog (front)
     Lamp, side marker
     Lamp, side-mounted turn indicators
     Lamp, reversing light
     Lamp, lighting plate

In the menu you will find a description how to install aftermarket Xenon, how to clean the headlight lenses and a description to place courtesy lights and floorlights.
