    I have a 2003 9-5 with the not so popular tiny turboed 3.0t V6 engine. Ever since I got it had a coolant leak, had to top up occasionally, then more often. Seemed like the coolant was coming out the cabin heater valve, google told me it's a common problem so replaced that. I was still loosing...

    Morning all, I have a coolant leak bad enough to drain the tank on a short traffic journey or a long early morning run say Surrey to leeds will hardly make a dent so I know the leak is pressure based. During my annual service the garage informed me the repair will be £415 + fitting so I managed...

    A while back my 9-3 started almost overheating under load but then cooling immediately down again on lift off - the garage fixed it by replacing a fuse, apparently for the circuit with one of the smaller cooling fans on it. It was fine for over 6 months, but now seems to have gone again. Can...

    Could anyone point me towards the pinout of the twin engine cooling fan module. My car is a 2006 9-3 Sport Diesel (8V 120PS). So it's got a twin fan with a large rectangular connector to the top. I'm trying to test the fans, as I've been told that one of them should be running at all times the...

    While I had OP-COM connected yesterday to sort another issue I noticed DTC P1482-04 was logged, relating to circuit no. 2 in the radiator cooling fan speed control system being open circuit. OP-COM has tests for relays 1,2,3 : 1 and 3 ran both fans at low and high speed respectively, whereas...

    I am having problems with the cooling fans on my2010 93 2.0T. They quit working causing overheating problems. Currently won't work at all. Does anyone know where the fuse is for the fans? I can not find the fan fuse listed In the manual.

    Not sure if this is a silly question, but can I make the cooling fan stay on without a key in the ignition? I have a mate with a 1997 9000 aero and another mate with a 2006 9-3 arc, both these cars will turn the fan on after the car is parked and locked up. On my 2001 9-3 the key has to be in...

    I know a simple answer to this will be "take it back to the garage" but I am fed up of it been there! So my car over the last few months has been stuck in the garage with new clutch, new power steering pipe work etc (I cannot drop or pickup midweek so sits there weekend to weekend). So I...

    Hi, I have an 08 9-3 Vector Sport, I have had it for a year with no problems. A couple of days ago the radiator cooling fan started up on its own (the keys weren't in the ignition). This carried on for a while then stopped. It stopped and started the whole day then was fine until last night...

    Hi, I've just bought a 2003 9-3 Aero last week and am having an issue with the cooling system. I bought the car and drove it home 100 miles with no warning messages and it ran beautifully, but on the 3rd day of driving it the 'low coolant level, refill' message appeared, and when checked the...

    I used 9-3ss for 8 year, everytime I swich off the engine and wait a few minute, I always heard cool like sound. I though it is the cooling fan. Last week, I did not heard it so I went to the service. He said one of the fan and the reley were mulfunction, then I decided to replaced them both...

    Ok, i've flushed my cooling system(4x), replaced my water pump(which is moderately difficult but doable), replaced 4 thermostats and replaced my coolant resevoir. I'm still having coolant back up out of the overflow and begins to over heat, but leaves just enough coolant for it not to get past...

    I've finally picked up a 2001 2.0 lpt convertible after many years of wanting one, I think I originally joined this forum in 2006! I'm pleased with the car and its in generally decent shape for the age, I've done a couple of bits so far (new discs and pads, fixed the electric mirrors), now a...

    The cooling fans on my 9-3 tid 120 from 2008 do not come on though when connected direct to battery both work. I have replaced the fan relay that is mounted at the top of the radiator shroud. Have connected to Op Com to discover fault codes P1481/1482/1483 04,fan control circuit open.I also...
  20. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    The two speed radiator cooling fan will not work in slow speed. The slow speed fan will also not run when shorting across the relay plug. The fan works correctly in fast speed, cycling with the ac compressor. Since there only appear to be one set of windings in the fan I'm not sure what the...
