Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
Ok only just noticed that i might have another issue with my 93
When the indicators are on there is no noise, no seat belt warning noise, no noise from the computer to say my battery is low!
What could be the problem?
I will add that previous owner has changed the cd player!
After a few years away from Saabs, I've been back for 18 months now with a 1997 9000 Aero auto in Scarabe green (oh, those seats!). Strong but not full service history over the 128,000 it had done before I got it, now on 141,000.
All has been hunky dory apart from the usual niggles...
I know this topic occurs with "alarming" regularity so I would like to ask a few questions:-
Given that it is known that the batteries/capacitors in the alarm unit start to degrade after 5/6 years, when the car has depreciated to laughable values:
a) Who, other than p****d off neighbours...
Just done following Superswede's fix for the theft alarm, the alarm unit has been off the car for about two weeks while acquiring the bits and assembling. Put it back on today and the message is still there, so; does anyone know if the alarm will have to be "reset" with tech II for it...
Based on suggestions from other forum members I have finally fixed my siren. I thought I'd show how I did it so anybody else could do something similar if they wanted to.
Basically, the siren will sound on its own when the internal batteries drain below a certain level (seems to take around...
Ahh electrical gremlins!
Was summoned to carpark today to silence the alarm at work. The indicators were flashing also.
Reset on the fob but seconds later it went off again and wouldnt switch off, even with car open, key in ignition and engine running.
Managed to silence it by removing FUSE 5...

Can anyone tell me any reason for my alarm not sounding anymore. When you press the fob it clicks but doesn't sound as it used to. When you set the alarm off the indicators just flash prettily with no alarm sound
For the last 10k or so I have been experiencing a rattle from the front LHS of the car when accelerating from 1800 to 2500rpm, particularly in higher gears.
The noise diappears after 2500rpm and I initially thought some of the turbo pipe work was loose and the noise was air escaping.
Just done an oil change on my 99, using Valvoline 10W40. On start up there was an erratic knocking/clacking sound coming from within the crankcase, seemingly from the area around no. 3 or 4 piston, that wasn't there prior to the oil change. Noise goes as the revs rise and don't always come back...
