    I’m afraid this is a tricky one as, although I am quite used to using a mustimeter for simple continuity tests, I’m no electrical engineer. The driver’s side (left) dipped beam headlight is not working. This seems quite a common fault and I have looked at a number of threads here dealing with...

    Hi, Hoping there is some good past experience that can give me some ideas. I had left dipped beam failure so switched left and right ballast round and discovered ballast faulty. Replaced with simply Saab used genuine part which as I'd switched ended up on the right hand side. Left hand side...

    Pretty annoying and reading this its a common fault. the SID is telling me theres a problem with the front left dipped beam Ive swapped the bulbs over fault stays on the left. Also checked the fuses. Reading on here it appears to be an issue with a dry joint in one of the relay's Question is...

    I have a 2004 9-3 convertible. The dipped headlights don't seem very good. Checking it out I noticed there's a lens in front of the dipped beam bulbs in the headlights. These lenses look cloudy and I wondered if they should be clear. If so has anybody found a solution apart from replacing the...

    Hi, This morning my car gave a 'Left Dipped Beam Failure' message, and sure enough the left headlight was not working. I have spent nearly an hour trying to work out whether I need a replacement Halogen or Xenon bulb and cannot for the life of me find a answer, if anyone could tell me which...

    Hello Everyone, My car was recently hit and it cracked the side light cover - this let a bit of water into where the bulb is which burned out the bulb. I took the bulb out and let it all dry out for about a day. I put the new bulb in, it works perfect but I still get the Right Dipped Beam...

    Hi All I have an odd problem with my 9-3 (Petrol 06 plate) that I hope some of you guys might be able to help me with. I am getting both Left and Right dipped beam failure - even though I have swopped out both bulbs, strangely though the washer pump has also stopped working. First thought was...

    My girlfriend has a 2005 Saab 9-3 and it says "Left Dipped Beam Failure". Any input? Do I just need to change the bulb and which one? Could it be anything else? And how do I know if I it takes the HID xenon or halogen? Thanks

    Saab 9-3 2004 My SID is displaying a passenger side dipped headlight failure warning message and the light on that side has indeed failed. Reading the forums this seems to be a common problem with cracked solder joints in the relay in the engine compartment fusebox, however, I have also...

    Hi, My Dad has a Saab 9-3 on a 56 plate, but he seems to go through an awful lot of headlight bulbs. He keeps getting the message of dipped beam headlight failure, anyone know what the problem might be? Many Thanks, Adam

    Hi, My dipped headlight bulb is out and, not wishing to take the thing apart to find out, I wonder if anyone knows what bulb is required (i.e. H7/4/2??) - the handbook doesnt say - I guess it will be a halogen one! Cheers

    I've got an 02 Aero with Xenons each headlight has three bulbs Do the non side/non xenons do anything flash, as the side lights aren't that bright? Also the OS bulb isn't working, but the NS one is, is there a separate fuse (bulb is fine)
  20. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi All, I’d be really grateful for some advice, please. The other day I noticed that my offside (right as I’m in England) headlight was out but the main beam is fine as are the sidelights. I’ve googled and found comments from others on GM 900s and 9-3s if I remember aright suggesting it could...
