  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hey Playmates. I'm getting an occasional interruption in my enjoyment of the old Ragtop. Once a week or so, the code appears and triggers the EML. I've done some research, but before I proceed with the costly stuff - better check here! I've cleaned the MAF sensor, but I still get the EML...

    Hi, this question has probably been asked a few times, but you can put the roof down by holding the unlock key on the remote, but i dont believe it has been designed to be remotely closed why not? you can push the button on the dash so the car can do it "manually" so is there anyway to program...

    Hi. My bike rack fouls the rear wiper, anyone know how I can stop the auto rear wiper; either physically removing the arm or pulling a cable or 2? I can train myself not to use the rear wiper but the auto feature is most frustrating and likely to burn the motor I guess. Thanks. Simon.

    As part of solving what is going on with my car , I now want to establish if the swirl valves are operating correctly. According to WIS, "The purpose of the swirl throttle is to close the tumble duct at light engine loads, forcing all the air to take the longer swirl duct. This increases...

    My 1996 Saab 900SE non-turbo runs fine until I park for, say, an hour. The car will stall and/or sputter for the first 5 min on the road, then it runs fine. This is terrible if I'm in town driving at low speeds and frequent stops. This is a new problem for me. Could it be the CPS, the...
  6. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have recently installed some front foglights on my 1997 Saab 9000 CS. The handbook indicates that these should work with the sidelights or headlights, but when I turn them on with the sidelights, the headlamp dipped beam comes on. Is this the normal operation, or does it indicate a problem?

  8. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi everyone.... I was wondering if anyone can give me specific details on how to manually open the top on my '88 900 vert. I've been finding a lot of mixed information about how to do it. When I press the button, all I hear is a click from under the back seat. So I'm looking to be able to put...
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I'm experiencing several electrical issues at the moment (more on that later!) but right now I need to check for the correct function of the On/Off switch (Part#4411864) for the TCS in the dash. Pulled the switch out and noted that only 4 pins ( #1,2,5,7) have connections. Checked things with an...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a '98 93 & my roof has stopped working after a few months of intermittent problems, 3/4 open. I have done a manual closing proceedure but the locking pins at the rear will not close so the rear of the roof remains sitting just above the tonneau without sealing. I have topped up the...
  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All, Just picked up my '05 (62K) 9-5 2.2TiD Linear Sport at the weekend, pretty impressed so far!! Forum is great plenty of useful info. Only minor problem is with the handbrake, I'm finding that when I engage it the car seems to dip lower on at the rear on the offside. Fells a bit...

    Can anyone tell me if this is normal operation.....not got the user book to hand... Was getting a warning on SID that brake light was out on drivers side....so with the rear towards a wall I watch in the mirror can can see lights are on and working as they should... SID still says bulb...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Just thought I would post to see if anyone had easy suggestions before getting out the meter and stripping the car. Yesterday the girfriend, with the usual female manual dexterity that only recognises fully on/open or fully off/closed, was using the passenger door window. Having wound it...
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I made a discovery yesterday, which I cannot believe I had not noticed before! If you press the wiper stalk down, it gives 1 sweep of the windscreen, or hold it down to carry on etc.. I used to toggle it up to do this, but not as easy if you see what I mean. I thought I'd share this in case...

    I have a 2004 MY 9-5 Aero with 20K Km on the clock. I have a question on the stability control operation - when I floor the accelerator in second gear on a wet and/or slippery road. The motor seems to stall momentarily as the wheels begin to slip. The motor then picks up and the car...

    I have previously received some great advice on how to adjust the headlights of my MY1996 V6 Griffin in this fgrum (which s ok I know what to aim for, I just can't seem to adjust them though). I just changed my globes after one of them failed (put in some Philips H7 Blue Vision Bulbs, much...

    Can any one out their tell me if this is normal for a Saab 9-3 manual handbrake operation. When I come to a stop using the foot brake on a hill then apply the handbrake the car rolls forward slightly before the handbrake takes over fully. The handbrake has been applied fully. Its as if there is...
  19. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    900S 1996, 115k miles Even after 6 months of use, I find it difficult to pull away and change gear smoothly. The engine judders as I lift the clutch, even if I use more revs. It doesn't seem to be slipping though. Grateful for your ideas and help.
