OpenSID can be activated via the T7 Suite (Guide for Saab 9-5) and gives you a wide range of diagnostic values ​​displayed in your SID. Values ​​such as speed, coolant temperature, voltage, etc. OpenSID is possible to activate in most models of both 9-3 and 9-5.

Show OpenSID

Press and hold the + and – buttons at the same time on your SID to access the menu for OpenSID. Navigate around with + and -.
Return to standard mode by pressing the + and – simultaneously.

Table of values

Name on SIDSymbol in T7suiteDescription
RpmIn.n_Engineengine speed (parameter is fixed at no. 1 position)
PengECMStat.P_Engineengine power in HP
only displays the correct value with a calibrated nominal torque
MengOut.M_Engineengine torque in Nm
only displays the correct value with a calibrated nominal torque
TengIn.T_Enginetemperature cooling fluid
TairIn.T_Airinlettemperature intake air
TClcExhaust.T_Calccalculated exhaustgas temperature
the result of a calculation in the ECU, nót a measured value
ECMSECMStat.T_Catalystcalculated catalyst temperature
the result of a calculation in the ECU, nót a measured value
TTCMIn.T_TCMOiloil temperature automatic gearbox
 works on 5 speed boxes only, not on 4 speed boxes
GearIn.X_ActualGearselected gearing automatic transmission
11=third lock up,
12=fourth lock up
PairIn.p_AirAmbientair pressure outside
PbefIn.p_AirBefThrottlepressure between turbo en throttle body
PinlIn.p_AirInletpressure in intake manifold
PdifECMStat.p_Diffdifference between pressure in  laaddruk in intake manifold and pressure outside
displays real boost or vacuum pressure
PWMOut.PWM_BoostCntrldutycycle of the bypass valve
signals how much air is lead to the wastegate actuator and how much air is lead back to the cobra (inlet before the turbo)
BadpBoostAdap.Adaptionadaptation of the boostpressure
mReqm_Requestrequested airmass in milligrams on a single combustion
mAirMAF.m_Airinletachieved airmass in milligrams on a single combustion
IgnaOut.fi_Ignitionignition point in degrees before top dead center of the piston
IoffIgnProt.fi_offsetadjustment of the ignition point in degrees
could be caused by knock, high or low intake temperatures, high or low cooling fluid temperatures
KnkDKnkDetAdap.KnkCntCylnumber of detected knocks
can be displayed for a single cylinder
knock detection often occurs long before a real knock is measured as a precaution
MissMissfAdap.MissfCntCylincomplete / failed combustions
usually occurs after a sudden release of the throttle (after W.O.T.)
ActuActualIn.U_Battbattery power in Volts
time between drop in battery power (1,0V) and achieved goal of 1.000 RPM
AmulAdpFuelProt.MulFuelAdaptmultiplicative adaptation
difference between values in fuel table and feedback trough the lambda probe in 0,01%
T7 adjusts between -25% tot +25%, properly functioning hardware in combination with correct software had a maximum of -5% en +5%, displayed on the SID as -500 tot +500
AaddAdpFuelProt.AddFuelAdaptadditive adaptation
fuel adaption while running stationary could be caused by a vacuum leak
MlowTorqueProt.M_LowLimlowest torque allowed by ECU limiters
nErrobdNoOfFaultsnumber of stored errors
FcodobdFaultserror codes for stored OBD errors in decimals
recalculated to hex a known code can be found, 4882 will be P1312 as an example
XaccOut.X_AccPedalpedal position in %
Kph1ActualIn.v_Vehiclevehicle speed measured on the left front wheel
Ca85E85Prot.X_EthanolActualpercentage of ethanol in the fuel tank
only for Biopower software
DispDisplProt.AD_Scannerif you feed a 0-5 volt signal from a wideband lambda to the ECU’s pin 16 you can display the signal in AFR or lambda
