  1. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Folks, I'd appreciate a bit of advice, please, re my 10-reg 9-3X SportCombi petrol auto with 64K on the clock. I've had this code thrown up now 3 times in the last few months, the last one last night. I hope it's not a failing cat and even a new sensor could be troublesome given how they...

    Hi guys. My battery is dying after 2 years and 8 months. Actually this is expected because i don't drive the car everyday, and sits outside during the entire year and some trips are very short (5 to 10 minutes). My replacement is already in standby Lately I had a well known (for me) speedometer...

    Hi all. I've just had my TTid remapped with DPF removed as well. Was running fine if a little smokey on initial push on the throttle with 56mpg on a run to Heathrow from Cambridge etc. However it dropped a cylinder on Sunday while driving slowly in town. The garage have told me there is very low...

    Hi guys..and girls, I tried to find a similar problem on this forum (and others alike) but my searches were in vain. This can only mean two things, that either I'm a bad Sherlock Holmes or my Saab is the 'most unique' car in the whole Saab history of unique cars (which by the way was ruined by...

    Just purchased my first Saab, a 2004 9-3 Linear, automatic. It was a college student's car that has sat for the last six months because she didn't have the need for a car. Started and drove when I got it but it had some misc electrical gremlins - gas gauge doesn't work, tail light was out...

    '99 9-5, I've had it for about 9 months now. Been a great car, first thing I did was the sump drop, oil pressure switch that had a leak, etc. minor maintenance since then. About 5 months ago had an issue with misfiring and lean condition which turned out to be one of the o2's, replaced and...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi All - I have a possible problem. On startup the voltage reading is anything from 8.8 to 10.2, but it reverts to around 13.5 to 14.5 when driving. I have noticed a couple of times a flashing green arrow just to the right of the voltage reading. Any ideas what this means? Also will a low...
  9. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Can someone clue me in on where the voltage regulator plays into the charging system? Is it inline after the battery? I am aware that the alternator charges the battery, and the battery supplies power to all the components...but where does the voltage regulator play into the electrical system. I...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi All, I'm from an automotive background in terms of electronics, I wondered if anyone here knew the appropriate voltage levels / wave form of the oxygen sensors when they are operating at idle- previously I've worked with Jags and Land Rovers where there are pre-and post-catalyst sensors-...
  11. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hey everyone, As a follow up to my voltage regulator question last week - how do i get it out in the first place? Two screws hold it on, one of which is easily accessible, the other is proving awkward. Too many pipes and gubbins in the way, from the contorted and unnatural position i have to...
  12. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    hey gang! My altenator has given up, reading this forum, methinks replacing the regulator is a good start. I ordered it from Scan-tech over three weeks ago, but they have been waiting on its delivey from Sweden. Does anyone know where else i could find one. I've tried all the popular Saab...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi Everyone! I have a quick question about the voltage on the infamous siren unit.. I have just been done on ..ay,but ,that is another story.. I did however take the "nearly new" alarm to a battery shop. They put a voltmeter on it...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Given the weakness of the CSE single reversing light, the availability of high output LEDs and the onset of darkness in the northern hemisphere, I bought a LED and stuck it in the reversing light. It was nice and bright. I turned off the ignition and was amazed to see the LED glowing quietly...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    does anyone know what the correct voltage reading should be and why mine reads anywhere from 9.something upto 12.something is this usual for saabs or is it a dodgy reading,she never struggles to start so its not a major isue just dont want it to become one cheers

    Hello, I am going to fit my CK3100 Parrot kit tomorrow. I bought an ISO cable from here : http://www.fonejunkie.com/Autoleads-SOT-10...om-p-16987.html Do I need to use the voltage converter that came supplied? Car is a 55 plate 9-3 Vector Sport Saloon. TIA

    When I start my 2l 9000 eco MY97, about a minute later the cooling fan kicks in and can run for any amount of time(not timed it), also at the same the dash guages (temp and fuel) dip, the headlights dip, and other lights. Question is (with not having alot of investigative time or skills and...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    How low is safe for the voltage to drop on startup? Mine goes as low as 7.5 volts. Will things lose their memory settings? How close is it to not starting? It comes back to 13.5 after a minute or so. Is the battery on its last legs and should I change it out before I get caught out? Maybe its...
  19. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Reinstalled engine after changing from auto to 5 speed. No ignition voltage or fuel. Is there an ignition switch wire common to both? What color and what ignition switch number please? Thank you.
  20. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hej! My 92 2,0 CS broke down a week ago, the voltage meter slowly dropped and dropped until at 7.5 the car died. Towed to a garage and they diagnosed a dead generator which they changed (doubled the valued of the car ). The voltage had been at 13.9-14.1 since then, until today. the last few...
