Hi I have just purchased a 9000s 1990 and when i turn on the ignition there is a whihing sound from the rear passenger side it sounds like a motor running. it remains constant in pitch weather i am driving or at a standstill has anyone out there got any ideas as its rather annoying.

Also there is a bit of play in the stearing is there anything I can look at or for to check what the problem might be

many thanks

If it's the fans, you can turn them off on the ACC controls.

(My nearside one whirs a bit. It gets a bit annoying. I suppose I should fix it

hi thanks but I havent got acc just the normal heating switches. I have just been poking around and it seems to be loudest near the rear box of the exhaust somewhere around the back axle?? think it night be the fuel pump. also any clues on how to fix the seabelt sign I tried the bulb looked at the wiring still no joy but all the other internal lights work except for the lights inset into the doors the redand white ones just annoying niggles really gotta say i wish i had bought a saab 9000 years ago. cant wait till I lose some of my points and get a better speced version or a turbo.

lift up the flap in the boot well and stick yer head down there!(with engine running of course!) .as the fuel pump is in the tank right under the spare wheel.if its comming from there,i would say fuel pump.
