  1. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    Hi Anybody got any advice on obtaining a secondary remote key? I have the original but thought I really should have a spare. I'm also interested in having the remote start option, but just not sure if this is a straight forward upgrade (tech2 change) and new fob or a complete re-wire! any ideas...

    I only have 1 key and this would seem to be an accident waiting to happen.......Is Dealer + Tech2 the only option or can it be done with op-cam on a Saab?

    Can anyone tell me what the deal is with the rear cd changer in the 2003-2006 Saab 9-3. Neobros say that saab didn't ever make one but you can install an aftermarket one, which is why there is a provision for it in the computer. So if its able to accept an aftermarket cd changer then surely I...
  6. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Can anyone tell me what it does (or is meant to do) I'm just curious.....Really hoping someone will say it opens up word and allows you to type up documents using the number-text-pad, because there would be nothing more ridicules(ly cool) than that :D
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys, this is my 1st post. Just got my 1st Saab, it's a 2006 1.9 TD linear sport. Didn't like the head unit which came with the car so I found the 'satnav' infotainment unit, it looks great but satnav and Bluetooth don't work. I'm not bothered about nav but would love the Bluetooth. Is there...

    My wife has a 2006 9.3 convertible with the integrated phone system and blue tooth, but whenever I try to get her phone (a Nokia 6700) to work via the system I get a message 'Insert Sim Card'. Happy to do this but what sim do I need - any old pay as you go ? a dual sim for her current number ...
  9. Saab News
    Autoblog Green has recently reported that the Saab 9-2 (pronounced “Nine Two”), a historical reconnection to Saab Automobile’s original 92 (pronounced “Ninety Two”), rounding out the production lineup, will have a hybrid option. This is good news as this vehicle must have a hybrid, but also...

    I have an 05 Saab 95 2.2 TiD Linear estate and I would dearly love to be able to play music from my mp3 player. Is there an AUX IN to the system as standard? If so is there an accessory to allow a standard 3.5m lead attachment? If there is no AUX-IN, any other suggestions? Thanks, Johnbysea

    Had a softwareupdate on my 2006 06 plate 1.9tdi, was to get the voice control working fully, but I notice that the customize option to turn the scale from 0-90 or 0-160 MPH is no longer having any effect. The MPH&KPH or MPH only is working fine, and everything else too. Also at the same time...

    I was wondering what people's experiences are with the redesigned EGR valve. Are they any more reliable or is the best option to clean on a regular basis? I know some people have posted here to say that they had the new valve and it made little difference but have others had the valve replaced...

    Hi, Just been playing with the SID ('09 93) and noticed that the option for turning on/off the TCS doesn't seem to exist, though it's supposed to be present according to the manual. Probably not important unless car is bogged... but just wondering. Many thanks!!
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi All Ages ago I asked about suspension upgrades for my MY05 2.0 Auto Vector estate as I don't like the excessive body rolling and wallowy feel, and someone (sorry can't remember who) suggested putting on Abbott racing springs and replacing the standard dampers with Aero ones. I'm now in the...

    I didn’t see this one coming! Not only will the Saab 9-3 range here in Australia be boosted by the addition of BioPower models, buyers in Sydney and Melbourne are going to get E85 pumps to fill them with the high octane juice as well. E85 on it’s way in Australia Saab Oz used the launch of...

    Hi All, I've put a deposit down on a rather nice pre-reg Saab 9-3 Vector Sport Sportwagon and am due to pick it up at the weekend. The only thing it's missing which I would like is the convenience pack - auto dimming door and rear view mirrors, electric folding door mirrors and rain sensing...

    Hi all, The fuse box in my J plate 9k has a 'cooling fan high speed' position for the relay and for the fuse. Does this mean that by default the cooling fan is driven at a reduced speed? And if so, would simply moving the relay and fuse into the corresponding sockets make the fan run harder...
