  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    1. Does anyone have any experience with the Aero convertible AC system? Specifically, when I turn on the car, the AC always comes on at full blast. I'd like it to come on at level 2 or 3, no more. Nothing in the SID AC system settings, so maybe a tech 2 issue? 2. I had to disconnect the...

    Hi All, I've got a 2004 Saab 9-3 Arc Convertible where the soft top recently got stuck in the down position where we manually had to raise the top. I could not secure the front, left latch and hydraulic fluid began to leak above the rear, driver's side wheel. I also could not open the trunk...

    Hi all, I bought a 2008 9-3 Combi TTID auto back in April as my first car and I love her, 192k km's and in really great condition. As you would expect for a 10 year old car there have been a few small niggles(needed some front springs replacing etc which seems to be standard issue) however...

    Hi all, My 2003 93 is due its MOT. My SID is constantly showing a left brakelight failure even though all rear lights are working fine. Question is will this be an MOT failure. Does the SID display even have to work? Davycc
  5. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Guys, Doing a bit of work on a friends '96 9000 Aero and have replaced the SID unit 'cause it was very faint. The replacement is just the same and I now notice that the dash display ( fuel consumption, auto gear lever indicator, etc. ) is also very faint. Any ideas ? Paul @ Kippen

    Hi folks...not been on in a while but I got another 93 (for my sins). It's a low mileage, full service history, receipts..blah, blah, blah. When I started it today a message came up on the SID of "immobiliser failure try to restart and contact dealer" or something very similar. Should I be...

  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    It doesn't work, I've bypassed the Amp1 and it still doesn't work so I'm going for the unit itself being faulty. Thinking that the centre speaker grill comes off and there might be screws under there?

    Hi recently picked up an old Saab 9 3 - lovely car, im a bit shocked at fuel consumption though. how accurate is the sid fuel readout- one minute it says 25mpg then seems to go lower Just put in 20 quid- reckon it will be good if I can get100 miles from that?
  11. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys, I used the car quite extensively this weekend and today after the last leg of my trip which was about 120 miles the low coolant level message came on on the SID. I stoped and checked the level. (It seemed around the reservoir line when the engine was hot. So I suppose then that it...
  12. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I'm looking for a replacement SID for my 2003 9-3ss and have noticed there are similar looking units out of the later cars which have different part numbers. Are they interchangable? If so is there a specific part number which is best to look for (a more durable unit for example)?
  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Could anyone give me some advice on removing the SID control panel from the dash please? The previous owner seems to have used a screwdriver or something to prise it out and it has damaged the plastic around the edge. Is there a way i can get it out without damaging it further? Thanks in...

    Hi all whilst I was fitting a new battery, I started up the 1.9tdi engine I heard a rattle. Took the engine cover off and had a look, I saw down by the heater plugs a shinny kinked bar that had 4 round posts on it at equal spaces. I could see it had come off 4 posts with pins on which could be...
