  3. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Yup, another day, and another request for help. Ever since getting our Saab 9-3 2.0i petrol, 1999, the drivers door doesn't turn on the interior light, nor does the dash make the audible sound when door open. I guess this is related to the door pin switch?

    Hi all, About a year ago my 2006 Saab 9-3 convertible started jumping into limp mode. Reading the error code with an OBDII I found the error code P2138. This code suggest that there is something wrong with the gas pedal sensor. As I have no experience with doing any repairs myself, I...
  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I've just recently purchased this car and there is a high pitched noise, I think to do with the brakes, the symptoms are: When the brakes are cold there is no isuue, no noise, nothing. After a approx 20 miles the brakes work perfectly but after applying the brakes and releasing the pedal, at...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    This has happened twice now. During a journey I wanted to lower the volume level on my radio to find I had no control of it from either direct buttons or remote/steering wheel. I could not change to cd/tape or make any of the radio related buttons work. So I pulled over and removed the fuse and...

    When I wash my car .... My brake discs seem to surface rust up within minutes ....... Could this be because the previous owner has fitted el'-cheepo disks ? or no ? Recently I managed to cut my finger on a shard of metal sticking out of the outer edge of one of the disks, so I was thinking...

    So I have done some reading on dpf's and as I understand the Airflow model or 2005 car did not have a dpf filter fitted, am I correct? Well mine is a 56 plate vector (on the v5 document it says Vector sport) but made in 2007 and I am pretty sure that there is no dpf fitted ( Which I am so happy...

  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Over the past two months I have had my car (2003 Saab 9-3 linear) in the shop 5 times in three different shops and spent almost a grand on trying to get the emissions system fixed so that it can pass inspection. I've had the purge and vent valves replaced, all the wiring looked over, and then...

  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My 2007 9-3 1.9Tid Conv has just started making a rather strange noise. Approx 2 seconds after the engine is started, a deep engine speed related whirr starts. Blipping the throttle results in the noise increasing with the engine speed. I'm not seeing any variation to the economy, but as it...
  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi all, Just looking to see if anyone else has encountered a similar problem as I am having! A couple of times now I have entered the car, started the engine and driven off only to discover the SID isn’t working at all. The SID display shows nothing at all, no time, no text, nothing. The...

    First post to the forum having joined a while ago when I had my first 93. I now have the 1.9tid 150 Auto on an 06 reg with 50k. Having found the EGR to be completely clogged last week I took the plunge and bought a brand new one. Fitting was straightforward but has reulted in the dreaded engine...
  17. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    The factory radio/cassette died on my 1996 9000, bought a new Pioneer head unit and connected it up via the correct ISO connectors. Everything works ok except the electric aerial. Anyone know which cable in the Saab wiring loom is for the activation (up/down) of the aerial? Thanks, Craig

    Someone I was talking to said his shogun does 60 miles for £15. What’s that in MPG? Seems like it might be low. Mike
  19. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I am trying to find a suitable towbar to fit to my 1996 V6 Griffin saloon. Found one company who can supply everything I need but they are asking if the Griffin rear bumper is any different from the standard bumper? I have no idea, we do have another 9000 but that's a hatchback so that's...
