  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Today I refit the glove box, and dash panels that I removed when I recently fit a new fuel pump relay, and now the EML is on, the strange thing is, the engine is running perfectly, no limp home mode, no limitations on revs. I have ordered a correct fault code reader as the cheap one I got was...
  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Transmission Issues Hey scene I just picked up a 2003 Saab 9-3 a month ago and I am having a strange issue after fixing what I thought was just a bad input speed sensor on the trans. After I replaced the input sensor and cleared the codes she drove normal for about 20 minutes around some back...

    Hi all, My 57-plate Aero 2.0T has suddenly started getting louder and vibrating quite a bit at certain revs (about 1500-2000rpm, and then again just over 2500rpm for a bit) - initially I thought it might be the exhaust but standing outside the car it doesn't seem any louder. I can feel the...
  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, This is my first post on this forum, so please be gentle. I have recently bought a 9-3 1.8t. (85000 miles F.S.H) I decided it needed more power and so had it re-mapped. The car is running fine and pulling very well in every gear. However, the other day, I decided to open her up...
  6. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Looking for any help or advice!! The automatic shift lever is suddenly completely loose and ineffective. I drove my car home from work tonight without any problems. I went back out 30 minutes later to go to the store, started it up and shifted into drive, thought the shifter felt loose as I did...
  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I have been locking the car on the key as there has been a very intermittent alarm going off problem - "Service Theft Alarm" message. It's been fine until now. When I went back to the car this evening, the remote would not unlock the car and the alarm led was off, so I assume the alarm system...
  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Apologies for excessive alliteration in the title, it kind of crept up on me.;) Anyway...2002 9-5 2.3T, quite high mileage. Just noticed cloud of blue smoke on startup from cold. Couple of times today. Never seen that before. Seems to run ok but have not had time to drive it much since first...
  9. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    When I put the key in the ignition and turn for power everything comes on (head lights, dashboard, etc), I turn to start the engine and I get click click (pause for about 1 second) click and that's it. Any ideas what the source of the problem is? Thanks.
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys, Have been pushing my 9-3 SS 2.0T Aero around today for the first time :cool: . In freezing rain obviously. After driving for some time the engine lost power, then jerked and finally stalled and did not start again. Like I ran out of fuel. Although I had a quarter of tank full I still...
  11. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi all, new to the forum., but not new to Saabs. Currently I have a '98 9000 CSE with 95K. I've previously owned an '87 900T Conv and a '92 900S Conv. I really like the 9000. Anyway, the factory installed HK unit suddenly stopped having sound. I had removed it earlier to look at wiring a...
  12. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    The turbo goes into the yellow then stops for a little bit then proceeds into the red and holds perfectly. No smoke, no excess oil useage. I've had the R pipe blocked for a couple of years so it's not the BPC. I'm thinking is in the vacuum system, i.e the actuator isn't getting enough vac to...

  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, Any ideas on this one? A week ago I was getting my car ready for use as I haven't used it for a few months. The water in the screen washer reservoir looked a bit scummy on top so I thought I'd run down the reservoir a bit in order to add some screen washer additive. However, shortly...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Wonder if anyone can help. I have a MY04 (05 reg) 9-5 Estate and yesterday the remote central locking suddenly stopped operating from both keys. No warning on the SID. I now have to manually lock the doors using the key and the alarm does not set. The red dashboard led does not flash anymore...
  16. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    The car: Saab 93, MY08, 2.0t Vector Sport. 26K miles. (225/45/17 tyres) Some history: The car has always cornered like it was on rails. It had mismatched front tyres (Conti 2 and 3 IIRC) on the front, both at the wear markers. I recently replaced those tyres, then last week swapped the [half...
  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi all, I was wondering whether anyone can solve an intermittent problem I'm having at the moment with my 1997 9-5 SE (a 2.3t automatic). A couple of times now the engine has suddenly unexpectedly died. The first time was some weeks ago while I was sitting stationary at traffic lights. The...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    It could be caused by a fault that I experienced in my '97 2.3 CSE Auto. The brakes suddenly became innefective with a complete loss of servo assistance. It took a very hard push on the pedal to get any stopping power. When I looked into this problem, some sources suggested that the 9000 does...
  19. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    My 2.2 TiD 9-3 went to the local Saab dealer with the long-standing grey-smoke-on-start-up problem (I thought they would go for the injector seals). THey found a faulty sensor in the exhaust manifold and replaced it. Now the car has a loud tapping from the top end (tappety) , has lost...
  20. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi, I have a 9000 CSE on a 'N' plate and this morning the speedo just stopped working. Looking through the site some members who have had the same problem say that after a time their car goes into 'get home mode'. My question is - will this happen to my car and if so, how soon?
