  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a Saab 9-5 2.3 on a 2006 plate. I have noticed that the steering wheel illumination isn't working. Not sure if it consided with the air bag light coming on. I will be investigating the airbag light at the weekend but just wanted to see if anyone had an idea or not if they're linked. Jack

    I noticed last night that the SID & radio buttons are remaining lit when the key is out & the lights are off...... Anyone come across this before?...... More to the point anyone know what I should do?
  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    2001 9-3 (with air con) i have no illumination on the left hand side of the heater control panel,having took the panel out to inspect i could not see an actual bulb holder.Is this because the bulb is built into the circuit board internally ??. Any help is very much appreciated.:thumbsup:

    All of sudden, the interior lights on my 92 900s are wonky. The forward position of the switch turns on the interior lights and they stay on until you change the switch setting (this is working as expected). But the rear position that is supposed to turn on the interior lights when the door is...

    Got the new media centre and have been working on the install. The steering interface should arrive tomorrow with the aerial adapter so I can finalise it. One thing I do need to find is a pick up for the illumination (i.e 12V when the lights are on) Does anybody know of a good source near to...

    My 9-5 auto has yet another niggly little problem - namely there's no backlight for the gear shift. Is this likely to be a blown fuse? If not, is it something a simpleton can fix?

    OK First it was the 'key not accepted error' and random steerling lock malfunctions when locking car then hvin to use the 'key' to get in the car as key fob wouldnt deactivate alarm (looks like ignition switch) Secondly it was the front offside spring snapping (2 days ago) Then today I got...
  9. Saab 99, 90 (1969 - 1984)
    Hi there. I am trying to find the bulb that illuminates the switches on the bottom of the dash, as mine is blown. So the headlight, hazard warning, extra switch, demist, heater fan etc. Each switch has a little window above it and the original service manual says there is a light tube with a...

    Just wondered, should the S button on the top of gear stick (auto box) be backlighted? W is. Also the gear letters: P, R, N, D 3, 2, 1 are not backlighted on mine - should they? I thought I'd better ask before taking anything to bits in search of tiny little bulbs...
  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Another question. I recently fixed the pixel problem on my SID using the idea suggested in the Cheap Bodges thread and it is working fine. However today I noticed one side is not illuminating and if I recall correctly there were some kind of twist in bulbs fitted in the back of the unit. Where...

    I sent this email to Saab USA (where I live) a few days ago; still no news from them! Do you think you could help out? Any ideas? "Dear all at Saab USA Customer Support Team, I recently purchased a (used) Saab 9.3 Aero. I noticed, about a week ago, that after exiting and locking the car, the...

  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    The back illumination on the headlight dash control on my 05 9-3 is out . How do I get to the bulb to replace it? Can I pry and pop out the assembly from the dash or do I need to go underneath/behind the dash to pull the bulb? Thanx

    Could anyone tell me how to change or inspect the bulb for the ashtray and lighter in 9-3 SS. Thanks
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Does anyone know if the CD, the ashtray and the lettering around the ignition key should be illuminated? I would have thought the cd and ashtray should be but not sure on the ignition. If so could any one of you Saab experts tell me how to investigate and rectify. Thanks guys

    Hi All My car is a '92 2.0 CS turbo with no ACC or aircon, just prehistoric standard heater/blower. There is no illumination for the temp selector knob, but fan speed and airflow selecors light up ok. Is there a seperate bulb in the back of the heater control panel, or is it a panel fault? For...

    This is my third Saab and the third one where the headlight switch doesn't light up. I took the unit out the other day but can't easily see how to change the bulbs. Anyone done it and can advise?
