Default 1991 Saab Fuse Diagram

Does anyone have this scanned? I just bought a 1991 Saab convertible Turbo 900 It came with no manuals and the convertible top just stopped working. Does this have a fuse? Hope this isnít a stupid question.... but truth be told I am a chic... (Women mechanics donít get mad that I am using my being a girl as ignorance in the car dept.) But bottom line is I am a total wimp and hate to get my hands dirty!



THANKS!!!

Renae

There is a fuse on a panel under the rear seat (three or four bolts to remove the seat - easy). On a 1991, the fuse is #1 for the convertible top.

Don't forget to look in the engine compartment (passenger/right side, I believe) for an in-line fuse. It should be clearly labled as such.

I really belive that the problem is more likely to be the switch. It should be removed and cleaned. You may find that the contacts are just dirty, or maybe a simple reseating will help. This was the case when I first bought my convertible.

When I cleaned all of my switches (a good idea) the switch illumination stopped working. There are plenty of posts on this forum and here (under slow window syndrome) on the switch-cleaning subject.

Good luck.

Also the handbrake must be on for the top to work. If you don't get a brake light on in the dash, it won't go...

As for getting your hands dirty, there are these brilliant vinyl gloves you can get... And you'll save a stack of money doing your own repairs. Lots of good advice and help to be had on here and even one or two girly-girl mechanics!

Oh, and welcome.

Hehe, "ok well to raise or lower the top you have to pull the handbrake, honk the horn three times and jump up and down in the seat".

Hi Renae, another girl mech who don't like getting her hands dirty! However, it would help a bit if you could let us know

1) did it work when you got it? If so, any noises when operating, if so, what!

2) is there any noise when operating the roof switch, such as a clicking, or is it completely dead; you can test this without the engine running as long as the handbrake is on, and the cars in P (with ignition on )

3) getting the seat is up is straight forward, may just be held in situ by two lugs, in this case its a pull up from the bottom of the seat (I actually start it off by pulling from the back of the seat where the seat meets the backrest). It MAY have two bolts where the lugs could be, so check carefully as Ursatz said.

4) whilst you're there you may as well check the hydraulic fluid level in the motor on the opposite side of the seat well to the fuse box - you can't miss it. A mirror and torch would be handy as it'll be a bit dark with the hood on. Should be at the LOWER mark level with the top up. Mine stopped working completely when the fluid had dropped too low but I could hear it trying to work hence earlier question.

Good luck Ez

Thanks guys and ladies . I turned off the Hydraulic so I can lower it by hand. It worked when I bought it. A little slow but no major noises. Now it makes no noise, no clicks, no nada.

Thanks for the tranny fluid answer, guess I have to invest in a funnel...since that is one tiny hole....hehe

are we sure she's not talking about the motor oil dipstick? Some of those year models (like my moms old car) didn't have a tranny dipstick.... so we might want to check up on that.

Is this dipstick you're talking about on the passenger or drivers side of the car?

... as it has the "tiny" hole I'd have to presume it's for the gearbox and not the crankcase ....

This is in the front of the car. The motor oil dipstick is marked pretty clearly. (Thank Goodness)

Thanks though for double checking.

Renae

Is there any instructions on this site for how to change the Spedometer cable?

Thanks!!!!!
