  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello everyone, A week ago I had to do some work on the retractor of driver side seat belt. I didn't disconnect the battery when I unplugged the tensior wire. This gave me the Air bag light on the dash. So rather then wait 30 or so driving cycles I disconnected the car battery for a few hours...

    Hi Guys, The 'Key not accepted contact service' is regularly shown now when I try to start the car. A few locking and unlocking presses of the key fob tends to do the trick, but I am concerned that I am beginning to become a little bit too blasé about this issue. Maybe it is only a matter of...

  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 1998 9-5 which I bought practically for nothing and with only 70,000 miles on it but which is rapidly turning into a headache. First the turbo needed replacing and, as I write, there is a man replacing the clutch. These serious problems have distracted me from some much more trivial...
