  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Today I refit the glove box, and dash panels that I removed when I recently fit a new fuel pump relay, and now the EML is on, the strange thing is, the engine is running perfectly, no limp home mode, no limitations on revs. I have ordered a correct fault code reader as the cheap one I got was...

    I am facing an issue with my Saab 9-3 SS 2005 Automatic 1.8T. After not using it for a few months the airco does not function any more. When I enable or disable it through the ACC (216), then the relais doesn't receive the current to open and hence the compressor does not start. After doing some...

    Just wanted to gather any experienced folks thoughts on this- Engine management light has come on on my 2001 Saab 95 2.0T. I have reset it a few times using fuse 17. I have replaced the spark plugs (was the only thing I have changed on the car recently so just changed them to see if that was the...

    Retuning back from Cornwall yesterday, car started fine and ran for 20 mins or so then I thought It had gone into limp mode. (but it was worse) Have sorted a number of egr and sensor problems out over the past four years with this car but this one is different. I will not go into why it took...

    I have recently return from holiday (2 weeks away) and have come back to a dead car, my nephew who was house sitting said my alarm activated but sounded tired and slow, not the normal sounding alarm, he managed to turn this off and thought all was ok. Ive gone to use the car and its completely...

    Hello... long time listener, first time caller. I have an '02 Saab 9-5 2.3t that drives and runs perfectly except for one thing: when I go to start the car after it has sitting for thirty minutes or so and has been driven and is warmed up, it tends to immediately die once or twice (sometimes...

    Wierd one. Driving the 9-5 a couple of weeks ago and all of a sudden steam starts coming out of the bonnet. Temp gauge stays normal. Pull over, shutdown, massive amount of steam and water jetting out in the engine compartment. Call the RAC - to cut a long story short, refilled it with water...

    I need to the power source to make my CDkonnect unit work correctly. I've got the problem narrowed down to no power at the 12 V plug that goes into the cig lighter socket. I've tried it with the stock lighter and it doesn't get hot. I'm also getting infinite resistance on the 12v plug that goes...

    Hey Guys, I have a 52 plate ARC 2.0t with 70k on the clock. Ive had it for about 4000 miles and it has always since ive had it had 2 strange faults. I had the car remapped after 1000 miles of ownership and both faults are present even after the remap. The first problem is intermittent and...

    My 54-plate Aero has developed a rough, stuttery idle in the last day or so. Absolutely no issues over approx. 1000rpm, or under load etc. Just at tickover. With previous cars, this was likely down to Idle Control Valve or similar, and - on my Omega - involved a squirt of Wyns or similar and all...

    I've an x reg 9-5 2.3 Aero estate which runs like its on rails, even after 140k. But the thing that bothers me is that after a while (probably 10-15k) the EML light comes on and stays on until I pull fuse 17 (20amp) and that seems to clear it until the next time. As I say, the light coming on...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Morning all... Well as the title says, my 2001 2.2 Tid says check oil level when going through it's pre-start checks, I've checked the level when cold and it's fine. Is it time to look at the oil pressure sensor? Is it safe to drive if the oil pressure sensors duff? Surely that just misreports...
  13. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    So, my wife parked her car up the other day and now it has no sign of life. Even the clock, interior lights and 4 way hazards are lifeless let along the ignition and starter motor. I can see the main chassis earth from the battery has an awful looking connection to the chassis so I'll clean...

    Hi, The check engine light has been illuminated full time in my 2001 TiD 2.2 for about a week now. For the last 6 months or so it has stayed on for about 30 seconds after start up and then gone out. The car is running fine, bags of power and not in limp-home mode, cruise control works, etc...

    I know there's lot of threads about the cd player breaking but I think most mean the whole radio/cd unit... single cd player in vector 9-3 radio is fine but if I play a cd it plays for about ten seconds and then I hear (a circuit breaker?) somewhere below the stering wheel, going click click...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello all, I am a new member and this is my first post so I hope you don't mind me asking for some help. I was recently given a '93 2.3L 9000CD (not a turbo). I had intermittent problems with the air conditioning blowing warm, which is not fun as I live in Bangkok. I noticed that three of the...

    1987 9000s automatic When I start the car in the morning (or anytime it has been sitting for a few hours), it will almost always stall once or twice when I shift to D or R unless I hit the gas and accelerate quickly. Before stalling, it will rev unnecessarily up and down, almost stalling, then...

    Hi everyone, I am new to the Saab scene- bought my 2004 9-3 aero in Jan- got to love the post xmas lull in car sales and the credit crunch for eager beaver salesmen who are desparate to sell cars and will drop prices for you. Anyway, I had a rattle which sounded like it was coming from inside...

    Afternoon All, I have a 9-5 2.2 turbo diesel, 2002. If I travel at a constant 70 mph the car is fine. If I up it to 80mph, after a short period the turbo cuts out. Stop the car and restart and everthing is fine. Any ideas? Thanks Chris
