  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Yesterday I had a terrible experience: The car stood in sun, it had almost 50 Celsius inside when I came back from shopping. Opened the door, put the key into the ignition switch (barrel) and wanted to start the engine. When I turned the switch to put the gear lever to idle I heard only "CLOCK"...

    Hi, I wonder if anyone can advise me? I have a 9-3 convertible that I would like to sell soon and I thought I would try and fix any current issues. I occassionally get a "Steering Lock Malfunction" message on the display. I believe that the suggested possible fix is to replace the ignition...

    hello, i have a 2000 saab 9/5 (american). I had an issue with the cruise control going out while driving on the highway. The car restrted right away, but then stalled again about 2 miles down the road. I was able to restart, and get home in limp home mode, but there was smoke coming out of the...

    Hi, can anyone offer any suggestions as to what might be happening....when I remove the ignition key the xenon headlights come on even if the light switch is in the off position. If I reinsert the key and then remove it, they go off. Thanks

    I'm still trying to bring this '03 9-3 (133k miles, automatic) that I bought at an auction back to life. I couldn't get it to start until I replaced some relays and fuses near the battery, and then replaced the ICM. It started and the engine sounded great. But then a few seconds later, I got...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Guys, 2004 2.3 9-5 Vector with auto transmission. It's not starting, was intermittent for the last week but has failed completely now. The key turns in the barrel but no dash/warning lights come on at all. Battery is fine at 12.7 volts, headlights and interior lights work fine, boosting off...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    This is a weird one. I know it's not the starter because there is no sound whatsoever. There is no reaction whatsoever like you get when a starter is bad and there's all kinds of nasty noises. :confused: Battery is fine and tested. It's exactly like when you stall the car and you have to jump...

    I recently bought a 2006 9-3 . I don't know if there was an issue before or not. Last week I bought and fitted a Witter towbar, with the plug and play socket and the plug in trailer unit. When I turned on the ignition to test the wiring the back lights came on immediately. Everything else...

    Hi Folks, Has anybody experienced a clunk sound after pulling away? My car does it i.e. about a second after pulling away when clutch is fully released, although it only does it the first time you pull away after starting ignition. Pulling away at junctions etc, produces no sound. However...

    Hello All, I have 2006 9-3 Aero with the 2.8 V6 and was wondering which ignition coils to buy. I can't really afford the Saab ome ones but maybe the next ones down, the Bosch would work fine. I have 106k on the car with a small misfire. It is a 6 speed manual shift. any help would be...
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a 99 SAAB 9-3 4 door hatchback. It appears that maybe a tumble is stuck in my ignition. The door that closes when you pull the key out is stuck open and my key will not turn. I have tried jiggling it and tapping it with a hammer, I've tried canned air, I tried a drop of motor oil, It...
  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, We have had our lovely Saab 9-3 convertible for 3 years now and have had the ignition coil blow out twice ( to our knowledge - we bought it at 40k with full service history but obviously it might have not been mentioned!). The first time was at around 50,000 miles and it cut out with no...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I'm going to replace the ignition switch on my 2005 9-5 2.2 Tid auto, but before I remove the old one, I'd like to have a new one ready to go in. I'm not sure which switch to buy though, as there are 2 listed. One has spade connections & one has bullet connections & without removing mine first...

    Hi. I've just got a 2011 9-3 Linear convertible. It starts first time but if you stall or park up for a short time the ignition immobilises. The 'foot on the brake' warning light comes on, even though I've got my foot on both the clutch and brake. So far it's cleared after 5 minutes or so but if...
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I am not sure whether they are related or not but a week earlier I could smell a burning rubber / plastic smell from the front passenger side from either console side or under the seat (saab 9-3 2.0t petrol) after I had driven it. I could not work out exactly where it was coming from...

    My ignition switch (6 months old) is quite notchy & somtimes sticks just short of the start position...... Is it a full disassembly job to oil it or could I get away with a general squirting with WD40?......

    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?

    Apologies in advance if this is a repeated questions but I have used the search facility here and on google itself and cannot seem to find what I need. I have a MY02 9-3 Aero 3 door hatchback. I only bought it recently and found both remote fobs inop. I tried batteries - still not working. I...
