    My mystery, and choose your own adventure, if you choose to aceept. The story starts one morning, a warm 12 degrees in Melbourne. Turn the car over it starts but only gets to about 800 revs and dies, repeat times 5 and the bus becomes the next option. At this point i did have approx 50km in...

    Is it possible somehow to store speed camera settings into my sat nav system, which is installed in my newly aquired 9-5 Hirsch'd Aero. The system is the Kenwood KNA-DV2200, I noticed that there is a smart memory slot in the player.

    Anyone know where the SID gets its speed signal from ? My speedo is functioning correctly but the SID isn't registering speed at all. DTE remains constant no matter how far you drive and the fuel consumption and distance travelled are also affected. Does it have a separate sensor to the main...
  6. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Just done a long trip involving a lot of open road and motorway driving. The car (2.0 LPT, V reg) has a tendency to wander on the motorway, such that I have to do quite a bit of correcting the steering. I thought it was down to just cross winds, but it is quite poor if it is just down to that...

  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    For past 6 months (and 10,000 km) the ignition momentarily cuts out on occasion, sometimes only evidenced by radio cutting out, often the engine stumbles, several times while idling has stalled but always re-starts. Not related to wires coming loose on rough roads as often happens while stopped...

    I have the auto aircon system and I've just noticed that the speed controlled recirculation option has stopped working and no matter what I do I can't reset it. Recirc was coming on in slow traffic and going off once we were moving. The SID does come up with the apprropiate info when I reset it...

    I'm sure this has been touched on before, but I can't find it now. Does anyone have any knowledge or experience about this:- Can you put a lower speed rating tyre on your car if:- 1 The rated speed is higher than your car's maximum 2 70mph is the fastest your can legally drive in UK anyway...

    I checked a few posts and tried to search for similar problems and found a couple things to check but would like to know if anyone has experienced this. I was driving the car yesterday and decelerating and all of a sudden 2nd gear became very hard to get into gear, weird, clutch was in and what...

Santa pod state that if i expect greater than 100mph terminal speed i need to have a crash helmet. I havnt got...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Recently the cars been losing speed really easily, that is, when in gear and coasting. If I drop the clutch the car coasts freely. Also, when trying to make sharp exits from exit roads (especially left hand turns) I'm having trouble keeping the car "composed", it's embarassing as other road...

    I've seen a very nice 1999 aero auto on ebay, they claim it has a 5 speed auto box. I'm sure the 5 speed auto's came much later than that. Am I right?

    My 02 Vector has started to creak when going over speed humps - seems to come from the front. Could this just be dry anti roll bar rubbers that need to be lubed in some way. Any ideas please?
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, I've noticed over the past couple of days that my idle speed seems to be sitting around 1500rpm while the engine is cold. As I'm only doing 4miles into my work at the moment the engine isn't heating up so I don't know how it is while warm. Apart from driving around for a while to see if...

    Having a weird problem with a C900 soft-top: at high speeds, on long, sweeping turns, the car feels slightly unstable at the rear, as if the back is too light. Tyres are new Goodyear F1s, and the suspension seems ok. I thought it might be an aerodynamic problem - previous 3-doors did not have...

    This morning I went out and started the K reg 2.3FPT - the engine revs went straight to 2000 and sat there. If I blipped the accelerator they just went higher and sat there Turned off the ignition and then turned it back on and it started fine with the revs doing their normal little surge...
