  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    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...

    Hi, My saab has lost the ability to rev much over 2k rpm.

    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...
