    I would like to start by saying my name is JD and I would have posted this in the correct forum if I had access to the workshop forum posting, which I don't for some reason. MOD: Please move this. Hello World!!! I am planning on doing a video of this diagnosis because after reading 100's of no...

    I replaced my CPS 6 weeks ago in my 2002 9 5. Now same problem has returned, same code. Has anyone had new CPS go bad that quickly? I purchased 2 new ones, aPenco and a BDW, both were cheap on Ebay. It was a pain to replace before and thought I would check here to see if anyone has had same...

    Hello fellow Saab owners! I bought a 98 900 S convertible about four months ago now, and had a problem with it about a month and a half ago: The car just died at a gas station and wouldn't start (turned the key off, and after fueling up couldn't start it again). It turned out to be the fuel...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    OK guys, I have been a Saab owner for about 5 weeks now, and the car is already trying my patience. Its an '05 93 Arc and a pleasure to drive, when it runs. First indication of a problem was a couple of times after filling the gas tank, gauge would show empty and DTE was 0. (Apparently the fuel...

    So, I've had a lovely 2003 9-5 for a couple of years now and it's been trouble free... until last week. Maybe one of you lovely people can give me a bit of advice. I've read through so many posts but something just doesn't add up... Last weekend i took a 25 minute drive on a hot afternoon and...

    Hi, My Saab is saad: http://www.uksaabs.co.uk/UKS/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=118692 I got it from an old boy who just drove it back and forth from the golf course. I noticed a slight misfire occasionally, especially at low revs. After 500 miles my Saab ownership went from faab to saad. I was doing...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Sorry if this has been asked before, but could somebody post a picture? The lead from the sensor disappears under the intake manifold and I simply can't find where it plugs in. Also, do I need to remove the intake manifold to plug in the new crank position sensor? My saab is a '95 9000cs.
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    First of all thanks for all the helpful advice on Saabscene and the encouragement to get stuck in and fix it. Used it many times in the past and managed to sort all my problems. Bit stuck at the moment though. Problem seems straight forward enough, must be the CPS. For a couple of days the...

    Hello, Car has been running a bit rough with a couple of misfires and N/A fault codes read this week. Today it failed to start after about 30 mins after being turned off. wouldn't start until greenflag turned up then started first time!!! The car misfired on the way home and threw the engine...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi I thought i'd be brave this weekend and replace my CPS. I removed the heat shield and turbo-pipe to get access to the screw holding it in, but after a few tries at getting it out, I've mashed up the screw head :mad: Access is bad at the best of times...I've tried from the top and beneath...

    Folks, I have a 203,000 miles 9-5 2.0lpt auto. Ignition fault light has been on for 18 months Car is getting worse and worse at starting when hot. Have changed spark plugs, checked all fuses, swapped DI cartridge with another of my 9-5s and car still starts randomly when hot. Turns OK but...

    Yet Another CPS Fault. Just thought I’d add my experience to this well know issue. 1999 Saab 95 with 116,000 miles and car has a couple of instances of difficulty restarting when hot. When I finally get to experience it for myself the following happens: - ignition on fuel pump primes, turn key...

    The subject of failing CPS sensors crops up regularly. AFAIK they are cheap, so would it make sense to change it before it fails? And if so, at what mileage or age? I'm not sure whether we've ever established a pattern on these, as to whether there is any commonality in age or mileage when they...

    Just thought I would add my experience for the benefit of anyone with similar symptoms. I know there have been lots of posts on this but it's not always easy to find one when you need it! Aero Estate 2002 facelift (250) just crossed the magic 100,000 mile mark! ( Bought a SID refurb. to...
  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My symptoms are a bit unusual. The problem usually happens around the time that the car goes from cold mode to hot mode, but not always. If idling it will just cut out. If driving there will be a horrible loss of power and then it will pick up again, causing a sharp judder. I have an Aero...

    Hi, my 1998 saab 9-5 2.3SE auto cut out 3 times last week whilst driving in traffic in the space of an hour. The first time occured after driving for over an hour in heavy traffic on the A406 in london so the engine was warm but not overheating. The engine cut out at approx 30mph (at major...
