    My Saab 93 1.9tdi 2005 had been suffering with a very noisey alternator and the occasional 'battery not charging' message. I took it to a local garage and they informed me the alternator was faulty and replaced it. I now have a very quiet alternator but every time in drive the car, after...

    Howdy, The battery in my 2007 9-3 tid 1.9 120bhp went flat and wouldn't start a couple of weeks ago, I had notice the starter getting slower in the weeks leading up to this event. So I took battery out gave it a trickle charge in the house and replaced it, car started with no problems. I put...

    So the story goes: 13 days ago (16th), new Exide 74AH 740CCA battery fitted as old one wouldn't hold charge. Fully charged before use. Friday night (25th) 'Battery not charging, make a safe stop' error in cluster. Check voltage at battery, 12.1V. Voltage at alternator B+ also 12.1V. Saturday...

    Hello, For sale, I have a new genuine Saab caravan electrics kit to suit a 900 or 9-3 hatchback. It comes with full instructions and I only just opened the packet looking for the trailer electrics kit. This wiring harness kit powers the white or grey socket one would fit to the back of the...

    The alternator bearings started to make noise, so i had them and also the brushes and voltage regulator replaced. Having reinstalled the alternator SID displays "Battery not charging, make a safe stop and contact dealer..". When I push clear, the message disappears, but battery sign stays on SID...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys. Hoping to get some more help from you, as I had found an answer to my previous problem on this forum. I got a Traction control failure message one day when coming back from town. Somehow managed to get home. It seems like the error occurs every time I press the brake pedal. Also I've...

    I have a 2001 9-3 2.0 litre turbo convertible fitted with a Varta C10 Blue Dynamics battery.(Art No 55 155 054) The car has been stood idle for some time and the battery is flat. Tried to jump start from my wifes Vauxhall insignia but couldn't get a good connection on the jump leads, I have...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Recently on a couple of occasions my 2005 Saab 9-3 TID has laboured to start. It mainly does motorway miles and has only covered 58k, after a perfect motorway run yesterday I noticed the following this morning. On start up the revs were higher than normal, just over 1000rpm, after 1/4 mile...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I recently bought a 2008 9-3 Aero Convertible. In my previous car I used the cigarette lighter to charge my HTC smartphone and bluetooth earpiece using a conventional plug in charger. I attempt to charge my accessories using exactly the same set-up in my 9-3 but neither devices charge...
  11. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    My car won't fully charge. I get about 13.6 V when on with no headlights or AC, but when ever I put the slightest electrical load on the voltage plummets. Are these symptoms of a bad regulator? Also, I doubt it is related, but my hazards flash for about 30 seconds whenever I open the drivers...

    Hi I have a 99 9-5 and want to charge the battery, I didnt drive it for about 5 weeks and only do short journeys. Can I just connect the charger up without disconnecting the battery or do i have to take it out of the car? The only reason I ask is I dont want to take it out and then have...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Before you suggest that the battery isn't charging and I should contact the local Saab £tealer, please read on... I went out this morning, -6, and the car started fine (It's a 2006 9-3 Vector 1.9TiD automatic estate which I've only had for about 3 months), I left it running for about 5 to 10...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Error message cam on saying 'battery not charging - stop safely' and the red battery light is on. There was a slight burning smell as well. Turned ignition off and tried again later on and the same happens after about 5 miinutes of driving. any ideas? is it the alternator?
  16. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    On a whim I have decided to buy and top up my air con using the EZ Chill system which I've ordered from Ebay for a little over £20. I think I'm correct in locating the low side charging port at the FOS, it's a 1.8t so differs a little from the official video...
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi alll, I have a 2005 Vector Sport 1.9 TiD 150bhp. Having put 2 new 'denzo' alternators in my car in the past 6 months, I'm now getting the dreaded 'battery not charging' message again. I've noticed however that the message only seems to come on when I drive at 3500rpm or more. Is this just...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello, newbie here. I don't know that much about cars as I ride bikes but my wife's 95 TiD refused to start this morning. It seems like a flat battery to me and I would imagine short trips do nothing for it. I'm gonna put it on a charger. Is there anything I should consider before doing this or...
