    I have a 2006 saab 93 vector sport and now the weather has gone a bit colder starting getting stability control failure. This happened a couple of times last year when we had the bad snow but then stopped. Its quiet specifc in that it only happens when turning right and then stays on until...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    As above, fires but dies as soon as ignition is released. If the ignition is held on it will keep running (it is running, not just turning) but is this the starter motor keeping it running? The engine seems to start when cold but not when warm and will stall eventually during normal driving...

    Hi All - I'm stumped, and am looking for some friendly advice. I've got a 2001 9-5 SE (V6, unfortunately), and it's been a care-free ride since I bought it back in 2004. A week ago, in stop and go traffic, the car died (simply turned off) as it came to a stop. It the failed to turn-over, and...

    Yet another abs problem :rolleyes: When starting the engine, abs light goes out as it should so all checks seems to finish ok. But at 20 mph it lights up again and stays on for the rest of the trip. Happens every time at exactly the same speed. I can drive for hours at 19 mph but as soon as I...

    Hi All, I'm currently taking my GM900 apart because it looks very much like it has bulkhead separation. This will ultimately lead to the car being fixed or being towed to the scrapyard. (But either way, it's a good exercise :) ) Anyway... after I had the front of the car on axle stands, I...

    Hi Folks, my 9000 has is developing a nasty shudder when accellerating round roundabouts, it goes away if I lift my right foot and doesn't happen round left hand bends. New tyres didn't do anything, I've had the front jacked up and nothing seems loose, bushes are all there and look...
