  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I was hoping to get some advice on the following. When I reach apron 55 in my Saab 93 2005 auto, I hear a beeping sound not unlike a warning beep for seatbelt unfastened. There are no lights coming on and as the car reaches about 65 the beeping stops. Any ideas anyone?

    Saab 9-3 2.2 TiD SE 2001. I have 3 fault codes coming up that light up the EM light on the dash. EGR, Boost Sensor and Glow Plug Circuit. A fourth comes up that doesn't affect the EM is the AC cabin temperature sensor circuit which is showing open or short circuit. I have replaced the Boost...

    The follow video shows the turbo needle bouncing about like mad. This video isn't actually too bad. Sometimes it is jumping left to right then back again really violently. The car jiggles a bit when it is happening then after about 2-3 minutes it all calms down. Any ideas...
  4. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Hi everyone, I was doing my monthly tire pressure checkup today, and when I screwed off the valve cap on one of the tires I saw that the tire valve was plugged with a strange wax-like substance! Does anyone know what this is? It's preventing me from pumping the tires. The car - a 2001 Saab 93 -...

    I must have the most fault riddled SAAB 9-5 going. Got in her to head for work, turned the key in the ignition and the CD/Cassette unit starts to give strange klicking noises for about 3 or 4 seconds and then went silent. I have not put a CD or tape in to see if the units work but I know the...

  9. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, Having recently gone through a turbo on my 9-5 2.2 TiD, I have a very bizarre problem. I replaced the turbo with a brand new one, and did all the usual servicing and draining the intercooler. What it is doing is when I put my foot on the throttle it will stick 2000rpm and not go any...

  11. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I’ve got a brake problem that is causing me a few headaches and I need your help. After a hard brake from high speed my front right brake seized on. I got the car home and stripped the caliper thinking that was the problem. The piston is moving freely and is in good condition as are the seals...
  12. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    My 2010 9-5NG 2.0 turbo diesel auto has developed a strange intermittent low frequency noise. It can occur during normal driving, and stop under deceleration. It can also be on or off when stationary. Any ideas would be appreciated.
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, Saab 9-5 Aero 250 Auto 2004. I have just plugged in a diagnostic machine, which was of use in spotting a thermostat sensor fault. I also played around with the dash part. However now when I am driving, I hear a faint beeping noise from somewhere under the dash every minute or so. It is...
  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have a 2000 93 SE conv. I have some odd intermittent electrical faults. The sound of the indicators will stop working for a while. The dashboard (green lights) for the indicators will stop working - but the indicators themselves still work. The radio will suddenly stop working and the SID will...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Morning all, been doing a few 'little' jobs on my wee 9-5, like reluctor ring, front torque arm etc etc, and thought I'd tackle a problem that has been thre for some time. When I lower drivers window, the glass seems to pull in towards the car, almost forcing the top out of the seal. Now short...

    Hello, I recently had my car serviced for a turbo issue and when I got home and wanted to fold the external electrical mirrors, it didn't work anymore. I mean it doesn't work when I push the "fold" button BUT .. very strange, it folds when I push the round "positioning" button direction left...
  17. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Help. I have a 1999 Saab 9-3 Convertible. Recently I found some type of sticky black substance on the rear seat. At first glance it looked like dirt, upon cleaning it up I found it very sticky. Seems to be coming from inside the top, between the liner and the outside. Have no idea what it...
  18. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My 9-3 saloon has a strange habit. The alarm triggers on a fairly frequent basis. The car generally spends evenings, overnight and weekends parked on my driveway at home, two hours a day being driven, and around 9 hours a day, five days a week parked in the works car park. Now the alarm never...
  19. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Conv/Combi/TurboX/AWD (2003+)
    Hi, the wife has a 2006 (pre-facelift) 9-3 Cabrio and told me that the indicators had stopped making a noise and that the radio had packed up. Having had a quick trawl on the web I went out to have look. The radio was dead and the CD wouldn't eject but the SID was alight and showing the...
  20. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    My 2003 9-3 has been acting weird: In cold weather, especially on the thruway, the temperature gauge on the dash falls to 0 and the heater fails to turn on to warm up the cabin. In warmer weather or around town, the gauge will rise slightly (though not to regular level) and the heat will come...
