  1. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    9.3 Convertible Year 2001. Hi all. 10 days ago I had a headlight failure (passenger side) and I thought no more about it. Today took car to collect Mother-in-Law and as weather was good, I dropped the top down. When we got back, I left the key in the ignition (as I often do) and we had lunch...
  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I will be picking up a 1996 9000 CD next week. It has an issue with the automatic transmission. I know nothing about automatics as I only have manuals. The seller tells me that when the transmission gets hot it disengages the drive and won't re-engage until the transmission cools down. He...
  3. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi When I first bought this 56 plate 9-5 vector turbo there was a knocking noise from the engine. The car sales place had it fixed ! Saab has 73000 miles on clock. They said it had needed a new cambelt. What in esscence they had done was re tensioned the belt to temporariliy stop the banging...
  4. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi. Yup another transmission problem! Hoping someone can give me the definitive answer. P = P R = P N = D D = D 2 = 2 1 = 1 Its not the selector cable. There are no OBD2 codes. Nothing on the MIL. The oil is new and at the correct level. I have cleaned the selector wiring. There are...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi there. I have a 2005 saab 9-3 convertible 2.0t with a single disc cd player. All of a sudden the player will no longer swallow the discs and they get stuck halfway into the machine. I can hear the cd player trying to pull the disk in but just won't. I have tried different disks and tried to...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, My central locking stopped working for the 4 doors. The boot lid still pops open. I can only unlock/lock the drivers door with the key. The other three doors are locked and refuse to unlock. I've checked the fuses, tried the handles inside, pulled up the locks by hand, tried the...
  7. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Hi all! On this topic I wonder if anyone could advise about a wurring noise I have a 1995 saab 900, 110k. I have replaced both calipers and pads but the noise is still there and rises with the speed of the car up to around 30mph. I have uploaded a video on youtube...
  8. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, Planned a long journey so decided to burn a couple hundred MP3's to a CD. You can never guarantee decent radio reception, or decent music! Using the radio in my 2007 Saab 9-3 (I think the radio model is ES2) I popped in the MP3 CD and it started playing just fine, I stopped at a service...
  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just noticed that my drivers side headlamp wiper is at the 11o'clock positon instead of the parked 3 o'clock positon of its neighbour. there is no movement when the washers are operated. The passenger side works fine , the connector is in place and there is power to the plug. so that rules out...
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, I have a year 2000 2.0 Aero 9-3 convertible. There has been a problem with the Radio since i bought the car on Ebay - (got it cheap!) The radio switches on and the aerial goes up. The radio illumination works and the display shows the radio station etc. There is just no sound??? Oh...
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All... I've got the new style dash in my 9-3, with the 6 disc CD changer head unit. I've recently produced a few MP3 CD's and for the most part these work really well. However, today I've noticed in some cases it ignores entire albums on the CD. I'm burning the CD's from my home PC, and the...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My alarm is playing up - keeps going off radomly, and doesn't set the indicators off when it's sounding :confused: If I lock the car with the key as opposed to the fob, will this mean the alarm isn't set? I'd rather have the alarm off than it going off in the middle of the night!
  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have for a while now been having a problem with the radio in my 2002 9-3 FPT not showing what station I am listening to on the SID. When this happens (as its intermittent) I can change stations, and it can, for example, stay showing a different station on the SID, or sometimes show no station...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi & help. The ACC on my 9000(1996) is playing up, May just need a Re-gas but before handing over my £50 (is that about the going rate ?) I thought i check out what you all thought. ACC works fine when you first start off but after a while the air flow feels like non Air-con. Had a look under...

    I think Saab should have Bluetooth in the US offerings, primarily because there’s customer demand for it and the current situation has more to do with bowing before a service that few people can use in a Saab (OnStar) rather than technical problems. But….. Today I joined the 21st century and...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    As the de-facto amateur mechanic and goto guy for my buddy's '96 9K CSE, the central locking/ alarm unit from the remote sometimes will not activate, but sometimes will. This makes it challenging for his better-half with kids in tow. It had become confused and wouldn't do anything. I...

    1985 Gripen has sent this one to me, freshly returned from his drive of the 2008 Saab 9-3 (more on that later). There’s been a lot of noise about various electronic features such as iPod compatibility and especially Bluetooth. Personally, I think GM have it right on iPods, but I know...

    We have been setting up new cameras in our glass furnaces and i managed to get a video of the inside of the furnace, the furnace is the size of a football pitch and hold 800 ton of molten glass at around 1600° C, i just thought it might be of some interest to the folks on here as it is a unique...
