  1. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    The other day, returning to car after parking, 'Service steering lock' message comes up - steering locked & won't allow me to start. Locked, walked away, came back again. No joy. After about an hour got started, no idea how I got rid of it! after [unsuccessful] lengthy call to RAC telling me to...
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I always thought there was something inalienably 1970s about joining a car club, particularly one for a quirky make like Saab. Yet here I am because I need some help with mine. Incredibly, a garage couldn't sell the 2000 93 convertible I found, so I bought it for not very much at all and apart...

    Guys, I'm sure I've read it here somewhere but can't seem to find the procedure for clearing the aforesaid message. I thought it was something like pressing the clear button then pressing and holding it again until it 'beeps. Doesn't seem to work. Any tips ? Paul @ Kippen

    Hi folks...not been on in a while but I got another 93 (for my sins). It's a low mileage, full service history, receipts..blah, blah, blah. When I started it today a message came up on the SID of "immobiliser failure try to restart and contact dealer" or something very similar. Should I be...

    Hi guys, I used the car quite extensively this weekend and today after the last leg of my trip which was about 120 miles the low coolant level message came on on the SID. I stoped and checked the level. (It seemed around the reservoir line when the engine was hot. So I suppose then that it...

    Pretty daft but since topping up my washer fluid, the warning message still comes up each time I start the car. Obviously I can clear it with the steering wheel controls, but anyone else have an idea what could be causing it? Or better still how to resolve? Thanks

    I have the message 'theft protection failure - contact service' and have browsed the net to discover that it is the rechargeable batteries in the alarm module that need replacing. I have sourced the genuine sanyos from the US and also the capacitors with the intention of swapping them on the pcb...

    My Saab 93 1.9tdi 2005 had been suffering with a very noisey alternator and the occasional 'battery not charging' message. I took it to a local garage and they informed me the alternator was faulty and replaced it. I now have a very quiet alternator but every time in drive the car, after...

    Hi folks, Just as the title says, I've been getting this error for the passed week on my 93 Aero TTID but when I check the bulb it's working fine. I've read elsewhere that this can happen when the bulb is close to going. Is this the case? I'm just a bit concerned that with the weather being...
