    Hi ,i have just fitted some aftermarket xenons to my saab 9-3 convertible which i purchased some months ago and when fitted they keep flickering like a strobe light even when the lights are switched off,any ideas why this is happening?
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys, I do think the light is poor on the standard xenons supplied on the 9-3. Is there any way to improve them? I did not feel comfortable driving in the pitch dark compared to the BMW we also own...

    Had changed my bulbs to 6000k, which were basically an aqua blue colour (see pic) But a couple of nights ago i had a prefacelift Aero convertible come up behind me and the xenons looked awesome, they were purple, but i knew they were oem standard as they had a slight pink/orange tinge of them...

    My first problem has materialised today 3 days into ownership of my 54 plate aero after a run with the xenon headlamps on. When I pulled in the path and turned off the lights they flickered madly like a police car and continued to do so. Instrument lights were flashing too. I turned off the...

    Hi, I have a Saab 9-3 saloon auto 07 plate and I am looking for some help/advice on changing the front speakers (maybe back 1s as well). I am not looking to change the head unit or add a subwoofer, just wish to change the speakers and get some half decent sound quality at least. Put it this...

    New to SAAB. Do the silver door trims (2007 9-5) remove and repaint. Mine are scratched and looking tatty. I would like to have them ' looking as new'. What mpg should I expect from Auto 1.9 D around town, on m'ways? Do the xenons change from rhd to lhd for driving abroad? Can the fog / rev...
  8. Help, Advice, Saabs and Motoring
    Just wondered whether anyone had any experience or thoughts on whether the xenon-discharge lamps as fitted to the 9-5 in my case, suffer a reduction in light output with age? I have never been impressed with the dip on mine, I think that the ordinary headlights fitted with the brighter bulbs...

    The laws of several countries require one to carry a spare set of light bulbs - if one has Bi Xenon headlights fitted as standard - which cost many hundreds of pounds and require a specialist wearing protective clothing to change them - it appears to be unfeasible to carry a spare with one...
  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Well the Xenon warning light came on today. Having had the front sub-frame bushes replaced on Wednesday I suspected the problem was likely to be the front sensor or wiring to it. Tried disconnecting and reconnection cable to the sensor without making a difference. So this afternoon I jacked up...

    Hi guys - can you help My 9-3 ss will be going in for the third time in the next few days for the dealer to try and repair my cornering xenons which no longer 'corner'. They have replaced the control module (after making me remove my Kenwood HU and re-fit the SAAB nav unit) and had many...

    I noticed the other evening that the dash lights flicker in time with the xenons strobing as I shut them off. Is this normal, and if so, does anyone know why do they do this? Come to think of it, even if not normal, same question..... BOF
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi I have a problem with the xenons on my 05 vector sport. I've searched the forum for various clues but am still confused. Yesterday the xenon warning light came on as I switched the lights on. After 10 mins on so the warning disappeared. Same happened again later on - ignition off/on it...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    investigating the cause of an odd engine noise last sunday, i finally traced it to the xenon unit in the n/s headlamp. the unit had come adrift and was rattling about, half-in, half-out the hole in which it should be mounted. reading a recent xenon thread, someone mentioned it's possible to...

    What exactly is the Bi in BiXenon? Low and high beam?

  17. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Does anyone know whether it's possible to properly convert the xenons in RHD cars to LHD giving a proper LHD beam pattern, so that to all intents and purposes they are identical to original fit on LHD cars? I believe that it's something to do with changing the internal adjustment of the lights -...

    I've had my M05 9-5 Vector Sport Estate 2.2 TiD for three years and absolutely love it. I've got two problems with the headlights though:- <blockquote>1) The Xenons flicker all the time when turned off</blockquote> <blockquote>2) Auto levelling malfunctioning with warning light on dash...
