  1. Remote key alarm control issue

    New Member Introductions.
    Hello everyone Saab drivers :cheers: I recently bought a Saab 95 1.9 tdi Linear 2008. The car has been very well looked after but the REmote alarm key control stopped working and I can only lock and open the doors by manually inserting the key.:crazy: Has anyone had this issue and sorted it...
  2. Cruise control

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Is it possible to retro fit cruise control (1993 9000CDE)? Just looking for an excuse to tinker.
  3. conversion of manual aircon to climate control

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Just wondered what gear apart from the dashboard gizmo i would need to change to climate control. ps how easy is it to get behind the dash to replace the halogen bulbs in the trip computer? I guess i'll have to remove top dashboard completely but is their a short cut? Regards a very happy...
  4. Ive just cleaned the Idle Control Valve

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    After reading several threads on cleaning the ICV I thought I would go and give mine a clean. I wasn't particulary having any problems with the car but thought I would do it anyway. I'm glad I did. I used carb cleaner to do it and what emerged was like a black paste! The car idles just as well...
  5. Idle control valve

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My recently sold 2.0i 1994 had an idle control valve underneath the 2 part manifold which, when cleaned, made the car run so much better it felt like a different car. Does my recently acquired 2.0LPT 1993 - non intercooler ( but one retro fitted) have one? Can't see one but there is a slight...
  6. Cruise Control

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi guys, Just returned to 9000 ownership (well I was missing the last one!) I've just bought a 900 2.3 turbo auto with cruise control. Driving down the motorway the cruise seems to pulse ie give 2-3 secs of turbo power then ease off. Is this normal or does it need adjusted ? Alistair
  7. Cruise control set switch stalk

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Help! The cruise "set" switch on the end of my indicator stalk made a bid for freedom, and the black ridged button, actuater rod, and spring shot accross to the other side of the car. I've found the button and the rod, but the spring seems to have disappeared into another dimension. I assume...
  8. Throttle control Gremlin.

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    1986 9000 T16 A little gremlin has taken up residence albeit intermittent, in the throttle electronics in the 9000. A/C has dropped all it's gas, so I am driving with the 'econ' switch engaged. With the a/c system switched on, the car runs eprfectly, but with the econ in play, the car...
  9. Safe or "limp home" mode ECU throttle control problems

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    MY1993, Saab 9000 CDE turbo automatic with TCS required new step down cable for transmission which was not shifting up from 3rd to 4th without slipping. I lived with this problem for about 6 months, and had also been driving without an operating turbo for 24 months since I didn't need it for in...
  10. Front Control arm bushes- Rubber or poly

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My recently purchased Saab 9000 CS with 145000 kms on the clock has the typical signs of worn front control arm bushes as the steering is not real sharp and direct and I get occasional 'clonks' when going over undulations. I intend to at least replace the rear bushes and need advice on the type...
  11. testing boost control valve

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    hi all, can anyone tell me the prosedure for testing it please. thanks chaps simon
  12. boost control etc

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    As far as I can see the only control system for the boost on a '96 LPT 2.0 is the mechanical wastegate. Is there more to it? If I was to upgrade the ECU and fit a Boost Control Valve, is the wiring for the control valve already in the engine bay? Would an ecu from a 2.3 FPT work in the motor...
  13. EcoPower emissions Control - Is Saab advert correct?

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Guys, It's been a while since I posted on this champion site! Perusing A National Geographic Magazine yesterday (Vol 190, No3, Sept 1996), my eye caught a SAAB advert, which stated..: "...Saab Ecopower, a new generation of turbo engines, The first engine to combine high performance...
  14. traction control

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have had problems with the traction control on my 93 2.3fpt. I have even had the throttle body renewed. All seemed ok but the tc warning light comes on on the rare occasion that I floor the throttle (when I really need the power)and the auto sticks in gear and refuses to change up, until I...
  15. Cruise control

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello again! 92 Griffin - though very rarely - the cruise control may be not be put on. Have I done something wrong to cause this. Thanks and regards
  16. Crusie Control Installation

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi I was wondering if there is any way to install a genuine saab cruise control thingy in the car or an aftermarket one if there is such thing because my 9000 doesn't have one but since its so bloody comfortable, i'd like to take it on long trips. Any suggestions guys? Thanks Wilfred
  17. Speed control of ventilation fan

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, After trying ACC with full speed first time after winter it suddenly died in 1994 9000. For some reason ventilation fan won't work but e.g. rear doors fans are working OK. Fuse should be OK and I measured voltage from ACC units and for rear door fans it adjust OK but for ventilation fan I...
  18. My New Aero - Cruise Control

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello I finally managed to puchase a fine example of a 1995 Aero, in black, and I am over the moon with it My only problem with it is an odd one: The cruise control works perfectly under about 72mph, but if you try to set it above that speed it does not take. If you set the cruise...
  19. Wooden dash + Cruise Control

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi - Can anybody advise me the approved way to fit a wooden dash that I'm about to get for my Aero. I was just going to use contact adhesive, unless there's a better way. And, should there be a warning light somewhere to show that the cruise control is in the on position. Also, what does TIP...
  20. Cruise control upgrade - vacuum to electric

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Now then chaps, at the risk of being accused of being perverse, let me ask this: Can you fit the later electric type cruise control in place of the early vacuum type? My 1994 car has the vacuum type system, which, although well worth having, is not as good as I'm used to with other vehicles...
