    Hello , not been here for some time my 2000 93SE has been suffering a battery drain when left more than a couple of days. I have tested 0.8 Amps and isolated the Radio Fuse No 15, which reduces the drain down to 0.2 amps. A 0.8 Amp drain would be consistent with the battery going flat after 3...

    Dear Saab Enthusiasts, My Saab dealer in Chicago could not figure out how to drain the transmission fluid so yesterday i took a shot myself. Saw a small torx head and pulled it. Fluid came out but not anywhere near three quarts. It smelled like trans fluid but has no red color. Using a pump...

    hi all I was just wondering if anyone uses a vacuum pump to drain off the fluid from the autobox rather than draining it. The reason I ask is that thetranny fluid on my newly aquired 9-5 auto is a very brown colour and will need the 3 cycle clean process leaving a day or 2 between...

    I have identified a drain to fuse 21 in the luggage compartment fuse 21, this is for the parking assistant and rear doors. The leak is about 100mA, and with this fuse removed the leakage drops to 10mA which I understand is in the normal range. I have a 2 month old battery which I have load...

    I've reviewed a number of other posts, but have yet to find a solid solution to my problem. My '06 9-3 has a parasitic draw which seems to be from the Infotainment system. In order to prevent my battery from draining overnight, I have to remove fuse #14 (Infotainment system). The battery itself...

    Hi guys/gals, I recently changed my starter motor and alternator, and again my battery just refused to turn the car over after a 1.5hour drive at highway speeds.
