  1. Re: Aircon Compressor Noise Like Exhaust Blowing!

    So I finally solved it and the problem was unexpected - and apparently not unusual. The whole compressor was falling off the engine, but not obviously. It was tightly bolted to the mounting bracket,...

    Re: headlight problem

    Hi

    My headlamps were not coming on until I used the stalk flasher to "prime" them, then OK.

    I replaced my HL relay with one from SAAB bits BUT now have a different residual problem.

    When I...
  5. Re: 9000 Aero Central Locking Fails intermittently on all doors. Petrol cap OK

    It was the relay box connections. It was obviously not just one door so seemed likely to be something that affected all doors. Even appears to be a fairly standard problem. General clean and wiggle...
  6. Central Locking Fails intermittently on all doors. Petrol cap OK

    When I try to lock my 1995 9000, with the remote or the key, central locking may or may not work - on all doors.

    The petrol cap lock works every time, the indicators flash, horn beeps,...
  7. Re: Aircon Compressor Noise Like Exhaust Blowing!

    Had another look and listen. Aircon still works. The noise sounds like a hammer drill, is intermittent with engine speed and mainly on the overun, so when dragging on the belt versus being driven by...
  8. Aircon Compressor Noise Like Exhaust Blowing!

    Hi. After a vigorous drive my 9000 started making a noise like a blown exhaust from the fron'ish, particularly noticable on the over run. When the rain stopped for long enough to check it out the...

    Me again. OK, had voltmeter and ammeter in the circuit when powering up normally, 12v appeared then disappeared, as I had been told it would (ECU controlling the relay?), 12V came back when I kept...

    Re: Fuel Woes, Idea Checklist?

    Thanks, have had the relay panel out a few times. I'm on it, also about to try the jumper to fuse 14 (from 22 or wherever there is 12V handy) to see if the pump works or not, or whether its upstream...

    Fuel Woes, Idea Checklist?

    Hi

    I am back! I now have another 1995 9000 Aero with 92K on the clock - not TCS this time.

    Just broke down - dead stop from 50mph. Had been running fine BUT I had noticed the odd hesitation...
  19. Strange Indicator Behaviour - Fast Flashing on LHS side, RHS Normal, all Bulbs OK

    My LH indicator is flashing much faster than my right. All 3 bulbs are flashing, but (the same?) relay is flashing too fast, at twice the rate, on LHS as RHS (which also has all bulbs working). I...

    Hi,

    May have a reason for the non NGK plugs = DI failure problem.

    I just "noticed" my fuel pump - 1995 Aero with 90K on miles.

    I never "noticed" the one in my last Aero which went to 150K and is still going strong for its new owner.
