I am about to experience the most expensive cup of coffee that I never got to drink. Put a large latte (2/3 milk) + 2 packets of sugar in the center console cup holder of my 97set conv. manual trans. Sudden braking resulted in the entire cup dumping forward into the ignition, gear shift and little cubby hole (where ashtray would be). Cleaned it up, but it got totally soaked. A few hours later the car started beeping (like when you leave the lights on and key in ignition) whenever the driver's side door was open even when the keys were not in the ignition. Did not do the same thing for the passenger door. A couple hours later I headed out for a 250 mile trip. About 2 hours into the drive I started hearing a nasty vibration sound from under the counsel/gear shift area. The noise continued for the remaining 1.5 hours (all expressway). Car otherwise drove fine - no engine chugging or slipping of the transmission, no electrical gremlins noticed, no indicator lights came on. For the last, non-expressway part of the drive when I came to a stop (with the car in drive) the car would idle down to below 1000 RPM (maybe 800), then stall. It would start back up and run, but would not remain running at idle in drive. I had to move it to nuetral to idle at a stop to avoid stalling. I read the posts re: cleaning switches, but the vibration/noise and the idling problem have me concerned that I may need to turn this over to a Saab specialist. Any constructive advice appreciated. Thanks!
