  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Evening all! So, looks like the starter motor on my 9-3 is on its way out. The car would not start this morning, but was fixed this evening by hitting the solenoid with a hammer. But not sure how long it will last, so need to look at renewing it. Any tips / recommended brands? Furthermore, I...
  2. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi, Does anyone know if my '97 2.3 n/a 900 SE convertible is OBDII compliant? There's definitely a connector under the steering wheel above the brake pedal. If not how do I get the error codes? Cheers, Mark
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hey guys, I have a WiFi ELM327 module. On OBDII-compliant cars it works like a charm. I just telnet to it and send commands... With my Saab, no go: NO DATA, since it's a pre-2001 EU car. My question is: is it possible to use this device to communicate with a pre-OBD Saab 9-5? (MY98 V6...
  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys I've had the CEL light on for a couple of days, gone now and hopefully wont return. The garage put there OBD11 reader on and got code P0380. I've just had mine delivered and tested it, it pulled code P0670. Both codes have more or less the same description. Was wondering if anyone...

    Has anyone obtained a list or know of a source for this information? This is to do with the On Board Monitoring using an ELM327 scan tool. Tid stands for Test identification and Cid is Componant identification. Then it gets a bit confusing, as apparantly the numbers are not generic and each...

    is there a diagnostic port and subsequently a said Reader for a pre 2001 T7 9-3? I know from 2001 the 9-3s were OBII compliant. My 9-3 is a 2000 model. Cheers

    Hi all, Question about the obdII usb interface. Anyone know if these model specific, or will they all work on any vehicle? and, anyone know where there is a copy of suitable tech II software up for sale. I'm going to treat myself and want to be certain I get the right equipment for my99 9-5...

    I know a lot of members here have purchased an OBDII reader, with appropriate software, and I know some Saab dealerships charge an arm and a leg just to hook up TechII, so the question is a general one requesting examples of money saved by having the ability to read fault codes oneself. Neil

    Hello, I have recently run a generic OBDII reader (ELM 327) on my 2002 2.2TiD to pull the error codes, with the following results; AT AL OK >AT SP5 OK >AT SH8111F1 OK >81 BUS INIT: OK C1 EF 8F >1800FF00 58 03 04 00 24 03 80 34 03 80 2A Can anybody enlighten me on the message format and...

    My 9-5 developed a throttle body fault over the weekend. Here's info from the OBDII log, telling you exactly what was happening at the time!

    Can anyone tell me where it is please? (Guess what I bought when I was in the USA? ) Thanks, TB
  14. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    This has probably been asked several times before, so please accept my apologies if I ask again. Did a search couldn't find an answer! What is the difference between OBD II and Tech II? I appreciate that Tech II is a SAAB tool and OBD is an international protocol for all vehicles. My...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Does anyone know if our cars are OBD-II compliant. I have been told that the 9000's were, but apparently not sure if 9-5's are. I know they have the connector. Im trying to decide whether to take my motor to saab to diagnose or to buy a OBD-II fault finding gadget and sort it out myself. I know...
  16. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have noticed considerable comment on the forums about checking for various faults when the Check Engine Light (MIL) is lit and various posts where a number of components have been changed in order to try and eliminate specific fuel/ignition problems. Sometimes with success and sometimes...
  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi All, I'm working on diagnosing a nasty misfire and hesitation, and I got hold of an OBDII scanner that works in ISO mode. I hooked it up to my 96 900, and... nothing. It won't talk. Now I know the US spec cars were OBDII compliant in 96, but can anyone tell me whether the UK/Europe cars were...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, Have anyone of you guys tried to read the running values during the ride from the OBDII port? I gues that post '96 models should have it? I tried to search the inet and there is a lot of software to read the values. And there is also a quite cheap OBDII - COM adaptors (~45 Euros). Sometimes...

  20. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I have a 1998 2.0lpt. SAAB UK say it should be OBDII compliant but when I attached a code reader to the OBDII socket it would not read the fault code or communicate with the ECU(MIL light is on). My local Bosch tuner was able to read & reset the code using a generic reader (not Tech II) so...
