  1. 1999 9-3 Faulty 3rd Injector

    Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello! I have a 99 9-3 SE. I've determined that there's an issue with the wiring to my 3rd Injector, similar to the issue described here (https://www.saabscene.com/forum/threads/130362-cylinder-injector-3-open-circuit-error). However, that thread is for a later model, as well as for TiD, which...

  3. Faulty A/C

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a 1991 9000i, with the standard AC (the three rotary dials, not ACC), with an air conditioning system that doesn't work. The system went out about 3 or 4 years ago, but I would like to have it running again! Whenever I press the snowflake button (the on/off button for AC) the engine...
  4. Can faulty thermostat mean loss of power?

    Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello again gents, I have a question about the thermostat. Mine is clearly in need of replacement as my car is currently not getting and staying at the correct temperature and I am getting the 'check engine' light popping on for a few moments after a long downhill stretch. What I really want to...
  5. Faulty Hirsch Suspension

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Has anyone else had this problem or am I just unlucky? Bought the Hirsch Spring and Damper upgrade from Elkparts for my MY99 9-5 3.3LPT Estate and had them fitted at a local indie, including new Top Mounts. Great improvement, much less roll and handled like a dream. 3 weeks and about 700 miles...
  6. Faulty ECU?

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have an '02 model 3.0TiD Vector and very nice it is indeed. I have had it for 10mths and I have had 3 problems worth noting in that time: 1. 'Orrible black smoke (so bad I stopped overtaking people and started crawling out of junctions ) 2. Poor fuel consumption (can't get over 38mpg even...
  7. WTD: Faulty Saab remote

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Right my dogs decided the black Saab remote looked a bit tasty and set about munching it. Now I caught them before they destoyed the PCB inside so that should still work, but one button on the PCB which locks the doors has been broken off and the plastic casing is totaled Does anyone have a...
  8. Faulty wheel bearing?

    Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    The ruby has a rotating noise from the front n/s wheel when on r/h lock or when accellerating hard. I can't find any play at all in the wheel bearings but know the inner bearings are double race so maybe this is why there's no evident play. Has anybody else had this happen to them? Brake...

  14. Turbo bypass valve: faulty?

    Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Took the outlet hose off the bypass valve today ( to plug it and enter boy-racer mode for the evening ), and noticed that all the time the engine is running air is coming out of the valve (but not as much as when the engine is revved and throttle closed abruptly). Disconnecting the vacuum...
  15. Faulty regulator / alternator

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Wonder if anyone can help. I think my alternator is shot. The car turns over fine but won't start. It starts of a jump and on a rolling start no problem. With the ignition on the voltage reads 6.6 and sometimes creaps up to 8.8. It's got new plugs, battery and DCI cart. Could it just be...

    Today I have been accepted into your community and I am proud to announce my first query - I recently bought my first ever Saab (9-5 2.3 se estate 2001)and I'm very pleased with it so far. One niggle is the Temperature display does not work - all I get is 3 dashed lines. Not a major problem I...
  19. Faulty Thermostat - Fails out of spec

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    For info...: Following an earlier thread where someone reporting engine coolant temp needle running just above cold/blue bar (instead of level at the midpoint of gauge), I took the advice of one contributant and changed my thermostat with standard Saab 89C replacement (alternative 82C not...
