    Other than crawling under the car and seeing what comes out of its exhaust pipe, is there another way to confirm that the heater is actually working? Can't hear or feel it when the engine's running. I'm talking about the coffee-jar sized one mounted on the bulkhead. Cheers - Musang. No "t".

    My Pal's '01 9-3 Aero convertable has recently developed a fault with the heater fan. The fan remains on at all times, even with the ignition off. There are no fault codes showing on a diagnostic check. To stop the fan requires the fuse to be pulled. It seems like a relay has fused with the...

    The heater on the driver side and central region is constantly blowing hot air through the vents regardless of set temperature. The fault code on the ACC control panel is 11. The passenger side seems to be normal. Any way of fixing the problem? Al

    Saab Folk, Anyone replaced a bad heater core on a Saab classic 900? I'm going to have to do the job. Can't find any instruction on the web. Actually,the hose connection on the fire wall are melted. Maybe a heater control valve is all needed to be replaced. Anyone care to inform me? Thanks, S.Medic

    Hi all, A friend at work has a 53 reg 9-3 Vector 2.2 TiD Saloon and the heater seems to have stopped working. The display still illuminates (fan speed, temp, direction etc.) but the fan doesn't appear to be kicking in. Does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be? Thanks, Gavin

    Hello, I have a 2000 9-5 with a heater fan/blower problem. When the car is started cold, the heater works fine. When I go somewhere and turn the car off for a few minutes to a few hours, the fan will not come on for 15-30 minutes after I start driving again. The heater controller appears to...

    Well chaps lets hope this is the low spot of 2007 for me and my beloved MY96 9k cse! I had noticed the tell-tale dreaded white smoke on start-up just prior to christmas and fully intended to have it checked out asap. Unfortunately asap was not asap enough as coolant started forcing its way out...

    Hi and welcome back, I thought if I waited long enough that I would be blessed with this fault, my 95 SE estate MY2001 seems to have had everything else from big ends, sid, turbo etc etc. The heater has stopped working on the passenger side and the fault code on the SID says code 8. The link on...

    After standing for four days my heater fan stopped working. Phoned the dealer and he said water gets in thefan and it just stops it. Obviously a known problem. You'dthinksomething designed in Sweden could cope with a bit of rain!!

    My wife has just come home and asked me "what the strange noise is". Sounds like the heater motor is running at a very slow speed and making a noise as it does so. It won't pick up any speed and the noise goes away when ACC set to off. I have recalibrated the ACC but no fault codes show. My...

    Hello Everyone, I own a 95 Saab 9000CS 2.3 turbo. I have had it for two years and have always had problems with the ACC and was wondering if anyone here could help. Here's the situation: The heater and air conditioner only work sometimes. Many times the heat seems to blow in the summer...

    Hi My 98 9-5 2.3se has developed a puzzling pair of possibly connected faults, it has the ACC system. 1. The SID permanently shows the outside temp on the SID display as 50c, which is a bit high for the South of England in Nov. As I understand this is connected to the air temp sensor for the...

    I've got a bit of dampness in the passenger footwell - i presume the heater matrix is leaking as there is a slight tinge of antifreeze to it. Its not serious at the moment ( nothing is steaming up etc ). I am loath to spend any more money on the car than I have to - would putting in Radweld (...

    A huge thanks to all who helped out with my wet, ponging Aero recently. Just replaced the heater matrix (all by myself ) So no more wet carpets, bad smells, check radiator signs etc. Took me just over 3 hours. But I did it. And with only one plaster needed on my fingers. So thanks again...

    I've searched and found a mention of it, but no procedures. Is it tricky? Anyone done it and taken pics? How long would it take? Any special tools? What do you do with the power supply going to the plate? Will I need a new gasket before I start? etc, etc. Sorry if I sound useless, but without...

    As the subject says when I started my vehicle after work I had a 0 on the lower left hand side of the heater unit display. I shut the vehicle off, removed the key and restarted it, same message. After going into reverse to back up it went away. I can't locate the message in my book, anyone know...
