  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, My first post so go easy on me! I have recently purchased a 2006 (56) Saab 93 TiD Estate. I took it to a garage to have the Air Con recharged but was informed that the compressor will not kick in to operate the system. They tested the compressor and made it operate via their laptop so...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello all, I am a new member and just wanted some advice on a few things... It has cost me a bomb just to keep it running, with all the bloody things that go wrong with them!! Would very much appreciate it and am in London. Internals: my front seats (particularly Drivers side) are of a...

  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi folks, I'm looking for help with what I hope is a simple problem. I recently put my car into a field after hitting an unexpected snow drift. No real damage, but on coming out, I must have snagged the cable for the external temperature sensor. The sensor is still in place, but the wiring loom...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have had a look at fixing my intermittent horn and audio controls on my 9-5 and have given up as I think I need a new clock spring. I intend to fit an external pushbutton to one of the dashboard blanks and wire it across the two wires that come from the clock spring to the SID. Can anyone tell...

    Hello The external temperature reading on the SID on my 52 plate 93 is reading between 46 and 50 degrees. Clearly not correct in this wonderful English summer :) Is it the sensor, if so where is it, if not what other solution please? Regards
  7. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Earlier today I was outside washing the saab (99 9-5 2.3 SE) and when I was cleaning around the front grille area the alarm sounded off randomly. I had the car locked and the keys were in the house, after running in to grab them the second I got back outside the alarm stopped. I didnt even know...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi Guys, I have a '51 95 3.0 V6 and yesterday the temperature guage started giving bizarre readings. Despite it being about -5 degrees here the guage read +9 degrees for ages and then, in about 2 minutes dropped to -25 degrees! Today it is back in the 8-9 degrees area despite there being a hard...

    The plastic trim/strip on the external rear door as come off my '99 reg 9-5 Anyone know how to get a replacement? The white clips are still in place on the car except for one, and the trim itself is missing a piece of plastic, seems to have broken off.
  10. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I need to remove the external door trim (the rubber strip along the lower crease line) to do some cosmetic work. Can anyone advise how the strip is removed? I had an idea that it slid one way or the other on studs welded to the door but careful tapping produced little movement either way. I...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Noticed the drivers door trim strip starting to come away along its top edge yesterday, thought I would take off and refix - I was wrong. All I succeeded in doing was make it worse, now has bigger gap but is still firmly attached. I may be being thick, but how does it come off and how does it...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    How easy.. does it clip on or is it stuck on.
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)

  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all, I have a problem with my climate control and after half freezing to death on a drive to London yesterday, it's time to do something about it. The aircon blows cold unless the climate is set to "high" at which point the heat kicks in and within minutes the car is like an oven! I suspect...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi All As my last thread on this subject was quite long I thought I start another one. A quick summary - Outside temp was reading too high, could not remove sensor but after much spraying with WD40 seemed to fix it. A few months later temp reading far too low. (And for some reason my car has...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Having looked through the forum I can see many descriptions as to where about the external temp sensor is. Not knowing what to look for I would appreciate finding out where the sensor is likely to be on a 95 Aero. I guess it is somewhere on a level with the front fog lights. I need to find...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    morning all, received my acc ext temp sensor this morning and thought i had nothing better to do than fit it, no.... the car had an incident with a "hare" must of been some hare that made this dent !! I am trying to work out what this should be connected to ? I think it is this...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    morning all, 2 Things, my ACC was playing up, very cold or very hot no control between 18-22, occasionaly though it would work, last night took out the internal temp sensor and gave it a good clean, what is the small resistive device, and can they be obtainned ? also the small motor was very...
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Not a false low or high reading..... but no circuit. ACC blower motor doesn't blow. ACC stepper motors don't step ACC diagnostic displays "1" Can anyone confirm the effects of removing the external temperature sensor on a MY93 1994 9000CDE -and confirm correct operation after the ETS is...
