    I have the classic symptoms of one or more failing ignition coils on my 04 93 2.0 Aero Vert. Is there any simple way of establishing which coil/s are on the way out?

    Every now and then and usually at very low speed, Ill press the brake pedal and nothing happens and I have to press further to the floor to brake Then after that the brakes bite at the usual point. I dont think this is air in the lines as I am not needing to pump, could it be a servo...

    Just a quick question here. I had an a/c recharge done on my 9-3 linear approx. 10-months back, but its no longer cooling like it used to. The car has 112k on the clock. Is this a common fault and is it the comp[ressor thats showing signs of failure? Or just that i may have a fluid leak and...

    I'm new here so many apologies if I've posted in the wrong place but I'm getting desperate!!! I have a 06 1.9Tid Saab Sportwagon (150) that has done 130,000. Up until the last couple of months it was a dream to own and drive. Its my third Saab and, generally i love them, however i'm starting to...

    Recently my 2003 1.8T Vector has started displaying consecutive warnings about failing rear lights on the SID. It happens after I've been driving for 20 minutes or so. The warning chime will sound and I get a message saying "Rear left turn indicator failure" followed by "Rear left brake...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    First I can't believe we've had the car three years and this is only the second time I have had to pose a problem on the forum! :thumbsup: Anyhow, the 9-3 started to develop a fault around xmas - short drive, parked up, returned to the car 15 minutes later, turned over but wouldn't fire...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All quick question - been noticing recently that when I brake and come to a standstill that when my car has stopped it springs backwards. I'm sure I have read that this is to do with worn / knackered shock absorbers. Just wanted to see whether it is something this simple or whether there is...

    My 1995 Aero boot lock remote became very intermittent then hardly at all. Two things I know work. When I use the door mounted push button the boot snaps open every time. When I push the remote a relay clicks in the dash every time. On inspection this turns out to be a relay which is...

    Hi 07 plate 1.9 TiD which is just hitting 70,000 miles. The starter is now failing to engage. If I stick it in gear and dip the clutch the starter does engage. I'm hoping this is just a faulty starter that needs replaced (booked in Friday) I'm a bit worried this may indicate a clutch/flywheel...

    I have a 93 2000 Model Year with a high output turbo. I'm down on power, and the boost guage doesn't get past the yellow zone when I floor it (stops at the edge of yellow/orange, rather than at the edge of orange/red). There's no big turbo whistle or other obvious problems. Can anyone tell me...

    i've just noticed that my drivers seat belt isnt operating correctly. when i pull on it sharply, it doesnt always lock, so now i'm petrified that i'm driving around with faulty belt! i was working on the belt trying to sort the slow retraction - could it be that i've disrupted something? is it...

    It has come down to this. The Swedish Government needs to grant the EIB loans to any of the interested parties. Failing to do so, GM will likely reject all incoming bids. It’s clear that when GM’s CEO indicated that the parties have not shown the money, it’s not their money because they could...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I am wondering how common this problem is. The car won't start, although the battery has enough juice to power up lights brightly. After towing to shop, they determine battery is bad, replace with new battery and here we go for another year. Suspicion is that I live in Florida where temperatures...

    Hi all, I have searched the Forum but not identified a definitive indication of what symptoms you would get if your dump valve was failing. Can someone advise on what would happen if the dump valve started to fail, and also totally failed! Would a failing dump valve cause rough running (worse...

    Hi guys, I'm new to the Saabscene but have found many posts regarding failing SID's. In one post, there was a statement that a guy used his "iron" to fix the issue. I assume he ironed the part that houses the wires connected to the SID to further solder the connections. Although, I am not...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    1993 9k Aero w/ TCS 96k miles My speedometer has taken most of the last 120 miles off, it comes to life occasionally from a stop light until the next time I stop, but most of the time does not move. During last 10,000 miles it worked fine except a few times it bounced higher approaching a stop...

    I have a 95 3.0 V6 deisel estate with 93.5K. Bought 2 days ago after not been driven much (serviced regularily by Saab dealers - last one at 92K 10 months ago - 1500 miles in 10 months). When driving at speed for a period the clutch fails. The pedal hits the floor and has no resistance...

    I just thought I'd report on a couple of non-related faults that were both cured by fitting a new battery. Firstly, on our C900 vert, it had been plagued by ABS fault lights for a long time. I'd tried everything- new ECU, new master cylinder/pump assembly but it still continued. Then, the other...
  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I often read on Saabscene about cat failures especially after a DI cartridge has been replaced. Something about unburnt fuel getting in there and taking out the cat. I have recently bought a 2.3 litre 9-5 which needed a new DI cartridge and the seller was told by a former Saab mechanic that it...
