  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi there, A little history, have had this car since 2000 and have taken care of it. Did the PCV change, cleaned the sump 3 times. A couple of weeks ago had the oil pressure light come on. Cleaned the sump again (about 30% clogged with bits but not sludge and nothing metallic) and changed...

    I've never seen anything like this so not really sure how to even describe it. I've noticed that when I insert the key, there's no regular click. I've tried different keys with no luck. Once I turn the key, the console and the screen start flashing, there's some weird clicking happening and some...

    An ebay item 2006 9-5 Aero has the above fault It appears to run well for approx 15/20 mins before trouble arises. Stutters quite badly and usually stalls then wait till it goes cold again before starting. Any ideas on what this might be ? Looks quite clean for its age so was thinking of...

    Hi everyone. My 2004 93 2.2tdi has developed an annoying problem. Whenever the mood takes upon starting the car it will run for a couple of seconds then cut out. It will do this a few times before refusing to start at all. After half an hr all will be fine. This could happen every couple of days...

    I see on the other Saab forum that someone solved a similar problem as on my 2011 TTiD. I'm not a member on that so figured I'd put the link here and ask the question. http://www.uksaabs.co.uk/UKS/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=126107&start=120 Given that I don't want to remove the sump etc, what do...

    Hey all, my car has been having some problems since I bought it. Essentially would only start 1/2 the time and was random when it decided to start. Didn't matter on weather or length of sitting. I got lucky enough to find a neutral safety switch on ebay and replaced it. Worked great for a day...

    Hi I have owned my 2001 9-3 for a couple of months now and as you know the gearstick is locked in reverse when removing key. I have been guilty of forgetting this a couple of times and car has lurched backwards when starting, although not far because of handbrake being on. My question is wether...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My Saab 9-5 will only start for a few seconds and will not start again unless I disconnect the battery for 15 minutes or so. It will start once again, but stop after a few seconds. The central locking is not working using the key fob button, or by using the rocker switch inside the car. The...
