    So, my 2003 Saab 9-3 Arc 2.0T died with no pre-warning signs. I filled up my tank, pulled out of the gas station and she died. When checked, we are getting fuel and spark. I got to shock my fiancé 4 times to test that one out. J After researching, we thought maybe the CPS- we needed a new...

  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    On Saturday morning I set off with a friend to Cambridge.. The actual destination was The Imperial War museum at Duxford on Sunday. Thats a run of about 225 miles from where I live. My car didnt miss a beat and averaged 56.3mpg, which I am more than happy with. I kept to 70 - 75mph on the...

    I have a 2000 9-5 with 180K. Yesterday I was driving and the car shut down, when I tried starting it I had to feather the accelerator and it caught but sounded all wrong. I got it up to 2000 rpm and it quit again like it was starving for fuel or air. The sound it made was (bup bup bup bup bup)...
  4. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    New(est) owner of a non-turbo saab. Normally I'm pretty good ie. I fixed the vacuum leak within the first week I had it. Now I want to describe everything in detail. It was kinda rainy and wet, the heater was on high when I parked the car. When I came out to the car in the morning the blower fan...

    The radiator fan does not continue to run to cool a hot engine when I turn the ignition switch off -- occasionally resulting in boiling of the coolant. NOT GOOD -- I don't want overheating to warp the heads or overpressure the system and burst hoses! The fan DOES run after the engine has...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi all I posted the following a few weeks ago and was advised to change the ignition switch. I just have and the same fault happened again. Can anyone suggest my next move? I have a 2000 93 convertible 2.0 petrol with 95,000 miles. Whilst the car starts every morning without fail I am...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hello, I was so stoked when I found this forum and read the thread about my exact problem and the fix was so almost simple. Alas, my wife's midlife crisis car has no IAC valve to clean. Am I left with a bad computer or a blowed-up manual transmission as my only outcomes? Any guidance would be...

    After fitting a aftermarket headunit, it has rear USB cables and rear aux lead. How can I get them to run to the passenger footwell?

    Good evening, I got a 2004 Saab 9-5 2.3t and I take note of every penny I spend with it. I know it is not the cheapest car to run, but its my baby. I got it low mileage in like new condition and I expect to drive it for a few years. The sum of all costs (excluding buying it) comes to £...
  10. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Ive got a '91 C900 (without turbo) automatic. It's started a new and challenging problem. The engine cranks over and fires..... But as soon as I let go of the key, the engine dies....I've checked the voltage at the coil and that's fine so I'm not suspecting the hall effect sensor. Help please...

  13. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    any idea why? maybe i need to post a pick of the wiring on this new kenwood. it works fine when the headlights are on, but even when the key is out i can turn on the stereo by turning the parking lights on, somewhere there must be something crossing, but where?
  14. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Just purchased my first Saab, a 2004 9-3 Linear, automatic. It was a college student's car that has sat for the last six months because she didn't have the need for a car. Started and drove when I got it but it had some misc electrical gremlins - gas gauge doesn't work, tail light was out...

    So as of a few weeks ago I noticed my left low beam on my 2003 saab vector would occasionally say it was out and when Id check later it would be working again. I noticed a little flicker in the light when it was on, but wasnt sure what the problem was. Now when I start the car it initially...

  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    As above, fires but dies as soon as ignition is released. If the ignition is held on it will keep running (it is running, not just turning) but is this the starter motor keeping it running? The engine seems to start when cold but not when warm and will stall eventually during normal driving...
  18. Saabscene: Performance

They're willing to do a limited run if they can get a minimum of 50 orders. Price will be: £110.64, with £11.10 carriage. If you are interested could you PM...
  19. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, I have a problem with loosing boost when on a long run or when working the engine hard. There is no black smoke when this happens, just a loss of boost. If the engine is turned off and back on again, the car runs nornally again. Also when this fault happens, the engine management light...
