  1. New Member Introductions.
    Hi there, Am a new member. My wife bought an 09 9-3 vector convertible, 1.9 tid. Her dream car, and is a lovely drive. After a couple of weeks, she pressed the horn and nothing happened, except the airbag warning has come on and stayed on and the steering controls gradually stopped working. now...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Have suffered the ignominy of arriving home on the back of a breakdown wagon :( My '02 9-5 Aero Estate has mis-behaved for the first time ever today and I am scratching my head as to what the cause maybe - can anyone make any informed suggestions? Symptom - car has been performing faultlessly...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    In relation to my original post (below in italics), I just want to ask one more question before I take Aerojon's advice and fork out £600 for the new CIM... In some other threads on the Steering Lock Malfunction error, it has been mentioned that with a Tech 2 diagnosis, previous errors can be...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, Electrical stuff is not reall my area of expertise (if you can call it 'expertise';)) I can do basic fault finding and diagnosis but this being a Saab and a bloody CAN-bus car i thought i would ask for some advice:) Car died yesterday, my other half was driving it at the time i was not in...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I am such a knucklehead sometimes - and the worst part of this I KNOW better (I used to work as a mechanic). This is what happens when I get in a hurry and don't pay attention... I have a 2001 9-5 with the standard B235E 4 cyl. engine and the manual 5 speed trans. I was out of town and my...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Aircon on my MY03 Aero wasn't working today- couldn't get cold air out of the vents at all. Yesterday and this morning I'd noticed an odd sort of muted hissing/whooshing, apparently coming from behind the dash. Anyway a quick check over this lunchtime and the compressor is engaging OK, so there...
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi I have a 2000 saab 9-5 estate 2.0, which over the last few months has developed a misfire. I'm no expert with cars but at what seems to be random intervals the car looses power and judders and bounces down the road, which I assume is a misfire :) After a few seconds its back to normal...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Having strugged last weekend to get under the dash to investigate fault code 11 on the a/c and giving up as it was just to hot down there I had another look with a friends help midweek. With better lighting and by moving your head from side to side it is possible to locate the fixings that...
  9. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a 1996 9000 2.0 that produces about 240bhp. It's actually been used quite gently (by my wife) so this isn't just a case of abuse. This engine and gearbox have done about 95k. With the engine running moving the gear selector from Park to Reverse, Neutral and then into Drive you feel...
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Just replaced a burned out blower motor. A bit of a wrestling match with the blower housing and the a/c housing, but it went back together. Nothing major broken in the process. :-) Started the car to discover the blower starts too. Every time. I can't switch it off; it does not respond to the...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I'm trying to test a 1990 9000 turbo, 2.4 LH, direct ignition with ACC. I am getting a check engine light sometimes. When doing the self-diagnosis or component and signal test on the ecu the check engine light never goes out. With the test wire switched on the oil level light then the coolant...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    well I think my diagnosis is confirmed voltage regulator faulty, higfish voltage of 14.8V and tonight noticed all lights get brighter when engine revved Is it a replaceable component or is it a new alternator?????
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Evening, Is there anywhere I could read up on problems with climate control? I'm not sure if mine needs recharging / regassing etc. The vents sound to be doing something, but absolutely nothing is coming out. The vents near the windows are fine and blowing through ok, as is the dual climate...

  16. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    This is a bit complicated so thanks to anyone who responds. Yesterday me and the vert- 900S auto 1992- went to Edinburgh for a little holiday. Whilst there I visited Western Saab to see what they could come up with regarding c/l. They were polite but didn't really want to go any further than...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    First, thanks to all who responded to my previous thread about this earlier today. But having had another look this evening, I'd like to push my luck & ask for a bit more help... I don't believe the air conditioning is working in my '96 Aero. (Not normally a problem up here in Scotland, but it...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I finally discovered the other day, that my cooling fan is definitely not working. The fan fails to come on all the way up to 100°C! I've tried hooking up the fan directly to the battery, and it works fine, so there is no problem with the fan itself. I've swapped the relay with the headlight...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    1989 9000 2.0 non-turbo 150,000 miles Starts after a fair bit of turning, but will die after 10 seconds. Attempts to rev the engine cause spluttering and coughing. Hard-wiring the pump I can get fuel flowing freely through the injector rail to the pressure regulator's input, but when I...
