    My wife reported the 9.3 1.9 TID vector sport wouldn't rev above 2000 rpm when she went out today - no smoke, warning lights or anything to say what was wrong. I came home and it drives just as great as always - What could have caused the limp mode to engage?

    Hey guys!! I have a 2005 9-3 and for the past 2 years, my car has been unable to rev beyond a certain rpm when the fault code of P2176 & P0638 appears, thus it drives at a very slow speed and unable to drive over any steep hills in town. My technician has tried diagnosing the problem but long...

    2 weeks ago I was sitting in a drive thru line and my car just quit. I had just purchased it 1 week prior. Was able to get started and have the codes read one of them suggested to replace the crank shaft position sensor. the others suggested to replace the DIC and spark plugs. I new about the...
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all Recently ive been having a little trouble during acceleration with the 1991 saab 9000 carlsson. During heavy, sustained acceleration the engine bangs out and goes rough as toast and I'm unable to rev (peddle goes hard) and goes to a rough idle. Has anyone else had this? Ive stripped all...

    Hi, My saab has lost the ability to rev much over 2k rpm. This happened on and off to my wife over the last couple of weeks in the form of suddenly losing power, then fixing itself again a couple of seconds later, but I didn't find out about it until last week when I was in the car with her. I...

    I have a 9-3 TDI 150 08 plate, and I have been having major issues with the car going into limp mode revs fixed at just under 2K no throttle response, shows traction control error on the dash, but the ECU reports throttle voltage out of range. The ECU has been sent away and tested all fine, the...

    Hi all, the 9-3 is at it again. really sluggish when accelerating...then bang on the motorway all aceleration disappears and limp home mode appears but not EML and no codes what so ever. reseting with obd or turning off and on takes this away and sometimes it comes back sometimes it stays gone...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I've had this problem a few times this winter and only today did it strike me that it is temperature related. Up to now I had assumed it was a blocked DPF and a combination of fuel cleaner and hard driving had been clearing it. However today, the temp was 1 - 2 degrees and straight away light...

    Retuning back from Cornwall yesterday, car started fine and ran for 20 mins or so then I thought It had gone into limp mode. (but it was worse) Have sorted a number of egr and sensor problems out over the past four years with this car but this one is different. I will not go into why it took...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, Had to bring the car back from France for Christmas, so was giving it a clean, wash etc which took couple of hours. Went to restart and battery pretty flat and wouldn't start. Charged the battery and finally restarted only to have multiple error codes - P1109 x 2, P0703, P0070. I managed to...

    I have had the same problem twice now in my 2001 9-3 sedan. I will get in the car, start it and the idle will shoot miles high, 3000 plus. The first time, I disconnected the battery for thirty minutes, reconnected it and all was well. A few days later, driving the car at a steady 55 mph when...

    Hi Guys, Got a strange issue with my 2003 9-3 Arc, 2.0T petrol auto, 160,000Kms. When I got the car a short while ago it ran fine, although it always felt like a dead spot at the bottom end of the accelerator - made for great smooth pulloffs but when storming out of a junction you made sure you...

    Gents, Apologies if I've mis-posted. I'd be grateful for ideas about my 9-5's problem. I'm not an expert and won't be looking to self-fix, but I'm keen to get some ideas to avoid a protracted diagnosis, and I'm very anxious to find a Saab technician near Chesham (or High Wycombe, Watford...

    My 2000 9-5 has for the last few years gone the Auto Box occasionally goes into limp home mode and the nice little gear light comes on! A restart and limp home is cancelled and a few restarts later the gear light goes and the box position indicator works correctly. I finally got my garage to...
  20. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I might be being slightly jumping the gun here and jinxing it all... but I've replaced a sensor on the wife's '06 1.9 TiD 120 and it seems to have solved the running problems we were experiencing. Every now and again, the Engine Management light would come on and we'd lose turbo pressure and...
