  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Re: Stability & Traction Control Failures and ele trical gremilins My 2006 93 2.8 aero drop top has the same warning. It doesn't show until I move the steering wheel a few degrees one way or the other. I also have an issue with the electrics in that when I put the HRW on the who electrical...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Re: Stability & Traction Control Failures Yes, I'm anxious to know this also. 2010 9-3 2.0T w/ 72k (original battery). I just go this error this morning for the first time ever. I recently replaced rear brake pads and bled the brake lines. Perhaps I just need more fluid...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hey guys, I have read several posts from drivers having intermittent dipped beam failures. I have not however been able to find a fix. I drive a 2005 9-3 and every couple of months I get a right dipped beam failure advisory on my SID. After a week or so that fault clears and everything works...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have four separate concerns I need some help with for my 2005 Saab 9-3 Arc Convertible. I will put them in the order they occurred because I am not sure if one issue cause the other. Issue #1: After filling my car up with gas the gas gauge needle goes all the way to bottom. Any suggestions...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Went to start the car this morning. Let it go through it's check first. Started it and on the SID I get a message similar to "High Level Brake Light Failure". I had my foot on the brake at the time and could see the reflection of the light in the car behind, so it was definitely working...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have a late 2006 model Sportwagon, and two days ago I went to start my car and it reported Stability control failure, and went into Limp-Home mode. I turned off the engine restarted and the car ran fine apart from the EML being on because of the stored fault code (I assume). I dropped it off...
  7. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    This topic may have been discussed before, but any information available will be appreciated. About six months ago, I was told there have been significant numbers of engine failures on both 9-3's and 9-5's because of sludge build-up in the engine oil circulation system and that a modification...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    As per the title really, what did it have, or what did it not have really?! Anything that has a good probability of breaking, or needing replaced? I've searched everywhere for an online brochure or spec list, or anything really, but I have turned up nothing. :( Cheers BB
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi I have a Saab 93 2002 SE which I love. However the air conditioning compressor is failing. My Dealer in Watford is quoting me 900 pounds to sort this out (this seems excessive!!!!!!!!). I read on Honist Johns web page that a"Spate of air conditioning compressor failures on 2001/2002 models...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I am on my third set of springs and shocks at about 68,000 miles. I have had the rear subframe (aka rear axle) changed once. My ‘03 9-5 Aero Estate cannot handle the loads that Saab claims it can without tire, suspension, and subframe failures. Any significant loading results in sag, camber...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi I have a '98 9000 CSE and there is an intermittent problem with the windows and door locks. Alot of the time, the door locks will not lock or unlock from the central button or the key fob. Doesn't even try to work. The windows (all of them including sunroof) work intermittenly as well...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've had my 95 2.3SE (98) for 18 months now. A few months after I got the car a headlight bulb failed and within 2 weeks the 2nd one failed. Now a year later the samething has happened again. I don't ever remeber a bulb failing on any of the previous cars I've owned. Seeing as both sets of...
  13. Saabscene: Performance
    Quick straw poll... How many of you have suffered component failures after fitting an ECU upgrade (or MBC)? In my case, a few weeks later, it showed up a bunch of vacuum lines that needed replacing. What about you?
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just wondering if anyone else has had the experience I've had of having their T7 upgrade fail - twice so far. When returned to the car the Tech II is unable to programme and restore ABS,TCS and ESP. I've had to buy a new T7 just to keep the car running. Needless to say, with the cost of a new...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Does anyone know anything about a Tech Bulletin warning dealers about Harmonic balancer bearing failures in 4cyl 2.3L engines?? I have a '95 that may be having this problem. Please advise. My email is [email protected]
