    Wrapping up the day we spotted another lighting deal, this time on LED light bars designed with the off-road enthusiast in mind. the 31" curved bar has an output of 180W, and is designed with some serious heat sink fins to keep the LED nodes cool and extend their lifespan. Learn more at the...

    Was driving along on Sunday in my 2006 9-3 1.9 TDi when my SID display went mental. It informed me that ALL of the Rear Right-side lights had failed (tail light, indicator, brake light, reverse light...the lot). Took it to local (very trusted) garage who said it needs a new Lighting Board but...

    Has anyone out there changed their interior lighting completely, from filament to LED? If so, is there a list of parts to do this? Also, by changing to LED lamps, do you need to solder in a resistor to compensate for the lack of the filament, to prevent errors showing on the display??? Am...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I am wondering if the audio controls on the steering wheel are supposed illuminate? If so, how do you access the bulbs to change them. Also, the courtesy lights in the lower portion of the rear doors and trunk are working perfectly, yet the front doors are not. Bulbs are in working order. Any...

    Evening all. Not posted much on here but thought I would share a quick and easy mod that i did tonight. Wired up the centre fog lights to my side lights to get a fuller light effect at the back. Just needed some electrical wire, couple of scotchloks and its good to go. No SID errors, and the...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hello Saabscene, I am looking to make the interior lights fade in and out when I open and shut the doors, as well as when I turn the switches in the car on and off. I have seen many analogue and digital DIY circuits online; but firstly, my brother thinks that our old (and now knackered) '89 9000...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hey guys, I have read several posts from drivers having intermittent dipped beam failures. I have not however been able to find a fix. I drive a 2005 9-3 and every couple of months I get a right dipped beam failure advisory on my SID. After a week or so that fault clears and everything works...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Firstly has anyone taken the front or rear lenses apart? Looking at modifying the tail light mainly and possibly modding the head lights tried the oven method 200°c for 5 mins and the bit that goes to a point on the side warped so looking for a different method the black parts are also tinted...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I think I must be going barmy. I’m sure that the buttons on my overhead panel (that operate the interior and map reading lights) used to glow green when the headlights were on. Today I thought I would replace the bulb but when I took the panel apart there isn’t one and I can’t see any way that...

    Hey peoples Any chance of some help? Reversed into a girder sticking out the back of a parked truck earlier today and managed to bork my nearside rear lighting cluster. It's a 2005 Sportwagon with the "ice" lights. Certainly the outer plastic guard (?) is destroyed and it looks like there...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Apologies all but a few more questions re my "new" '52 2.0t; One of my main beam headlights (the ones nearest centre of grille) isn't working but replacing the bulb didn't fix it. Can't believe they're on separate fuses are they? Any ideas? The heating controls don't light up at night...

    Hi I've got a couple of problems with my 2005 9-5 Linear 2.2TiD Estate (116k miles) which I hope someone can help with. 1) An annoyance has just started last week, when I go under power lines (not the big pylon type bit, but the "local distribution" ones, on telegraph poles) the dashboard...

    Yup, I know this will divide opinion, but has anyone got or attempted to fit aftermarket daytime LED lights to their car (similar to the Audi design). If so, do they look good/bad, how easy were they to fit and what ones are recommended? Fancy doing a few bits and bobs to my car,mainly out of...

    Hi there, In my '94 9000 cs the lighting on the EDU in the dash went dim so I bought globes, pulled off the dash top, disconnected the instrument cluster and changed them. While it was out I decided to change all of the globes. All the globes were bought from SAAB dealer so are the correct...

  17. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    As I go to knock-off on a Friday night I reverse my 1991 900i towards the office's floor-to-ceiling, darkened windows and check my rear lights in them. Last night my brakelights worked when all other lights were off; but not when on. Hmm. I had to drive home, anyway: car would've spent the...
  18. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi to all. I'm in the process of buying a Saab Aero 9-3 (2005). When I viewed the car, I noticed that there was a small cable/fibre optic wire pointing out of the interior roof lighting console area, where the interior mirror is located. Any idea what this is, should it have a clear cover over...
