  1. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    When I try to lock my 1995 9000, with the remote or the key, central locking may or may not work - on all doors. The petrol cap lock works every time, the indicators flash, horn beeps, immobiliser immobiises. Just the locks don't move. They may grunt a bit. Next time they can snap shut or...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just replaced all ignition coils due because of missing in the engine on heavy acceleration. Coils fixed that problem but now the car will intermittently die. Will do this while idling or a while driving. No codes have been shown yet. Any ideas on what could cause his? Crank position sensor?
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Hi, this I my first thread on here. I hope someone can point me in the right direction as it's driving me mad! I have recently bought a 2005 9-3 vector sport 1.9. When buying it the seller told me he sometimes struggles to get the radio on. Now I have had the car few weeks, I realise that he...

    So my girlfriends' Saab 9-3, 2003 has a lowbeam headlight that just started to flicker off after a few bumps on the road as you're driving. This was happening with the left one, and when we brought the car in for some internal engine work, they had her replace the whole headlamp...

    Hi all. Just bought a 2004 9-3 Arc with 54K mi on it, and shortly after I brought it home, I had this problem. Either the SID & stereo both work . . . or they don't. It's hit or miss: sometimes they work when I turn the car on, some times not, and sometimes when it doesn't work and I'm...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hello - I drive a 2006 9-3 TiD Sport 63K. I had a noisy clutch so replaced the flywheel and slave at the same time. When it came back the bite point was quite low but seemed to get better after driving (pumping). On a long motorway trip from Manchester to Bath the clutch got progressively weaker...

    NG900S automatic...speedometer and fuel indicators along with everything else in cluster only works when it wants to. Used to be able to push mileage reset button and get it to come back on for a while but not now. I have removed the cluster and the wiring is clean tight and unharmed. I keep...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    MY98 900 2.0T 108K Bit weird this - intermittently takes ages to start -couple of seconds as opposed to almost instant usually. No CEL, drives fine, new battery, battery leads fine, new DI at 100K, just had correct spark plugs put in as old ones were looking a bit worn. It has happened when...

    Hi there, just fitted another engine (the previous one died completely due to damaged oil pump). Once started it idles normally for appr. 5 mins then dies suddenly (a click is heard in the relay board behing the glovebox at the same time). As though power feeding ignition was cut abruptly (rev...

    Hi guys, I've been having this issue with my 93 2.2 tid recently. On some journeys the ABS, Brake and TC Failure picture light up. The speedo and rev counter will freeze every time these lights come on. The light do usually go off within a few seconds but there have been occasions where they...

    Following on from this topic: http://www.saabscene.com/forum/index.php?s...1638775&hl= Which really ended up about the coolant leak, I have a problem with the heater blower not working. I have replaced the dodgy display, so now I can see what should be happening. I have done the OFF and AUTO...

  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I've been suffering from this problem on and off for the last few months and I've decided it's about time i did something about it... Occasionally when I start up my 9k (MY97, 2.3T Auto) it'll run very rich for the first few minutes (anywhere between 30 seconds and 10 minutes) before the...

  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I recently acquired a 1988 9000i which would not go into 1st or 2nd gear. With help from a friend and this forum we managed to locate the problem to the rubber bush in the gear selector linkage (many thanks to whoever was concerned). There now seems to be an intermittent brief (one second or...
