Just seeing if you stillneed assistance with this problem?
Sorry but I am confused, you say will not go over 40 but then say it does?
"In town it jumps to 40 never above."
Are you saying that it does not work normal and instead bounces/jumps to 40?
"When I got on freeway it hit 70-75 though But stays right at 40 "
Are you saying that your vehicle was actually going 70-75 but only showed 40 on the speedo or that it then went down to 40?
I do not have access at this time to my repair software but if I remember correctly saab pulls the speed from one of the speed sensors.... A scan tool would show each wheels spee and identify if it was the problem, otherwise wiring, speedo and the such such be next checked.
It could be many things, but it requires diagnosis to locate the problem..... Are you looking to try and find out what it is and fix it yourself or are you just trying to get an idea what it may be and will be having a shop preform the repairs?
Ok, I just wanted to be sure. In that case without actual testing it could be any of the above I posted.
If you need any further assistance just let me know.
