    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I got a ABS warning spear on my 2006 9-3 sports estate, I've seen this before when I changed the front wheel bearings last year and forgot to do up the ABS connector, I had a quick look and they all seems ok, so I presume it's a break in a wire somewhere under the car or the rear wheels...

  7. Dang! - ABS light on just before MOT time

    Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I've got a 1993 900 and the ABS light is telling me that there is a problem. I have checked the static resistance of the sensors and they are all within tolerance. Next guess was the ABS pressure reservoir but I've swapped that with one from a working car and the light is still lit. Is there...

  10. ABS traction control and stability warnings - WINNER

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Yesterday my missus informed me that our 9-3 1.9Tid had flashed up multiple warnings when driving along. She said abs, traction control and other stuff and now the fuel guage has lit up. My first thought was battery or alt to be more precise as she was driving when they first appeared but the...

    Guys, Sorting a friends 2002 9-5 estate 'cause it has an intermittent ABS fault. Occasionally the light comes on and the car drops out of cruise control. I thought at first it might be a broken reluctor ring but these seem to be fairly new and clean. Next is to check the resistance of the...

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, My car at times turns off the ESC and ABS all at once and without interference of mine. It is completely random, at no given intervals and at no particular situation other then mostly shortly after turning the engine on. Usually turning the car off and on again solves it for the day, but...

  20. What happens to your ABS

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    This is a follow up question regarding bleeding the brakes. What I am unsure about is what is the significance of immobilising the ABS. I've never bled brakes on a car with ABS. It's always been a straight forward proccess of bleed out the air and old fluid - job done. But I've read you need to...
