  1. 9-3 Aero (V6) won't even try to start after plugs & ignition coil change

    Finally, maybe check the airbag switch on the positive side of the battery terminal connector if your car is so equipped. Other than that, sounds P-BUS related since you're getting the transmission malfunction message.

    Also, you can double check condition of pins for the ECU connectors. Perhaps one or more got bent or damaged? And double check the ground connections to the ECU again.

    Also, with the failing ABS module possibility, that typically occurs under a warm restart and gives lots of warning before total failure but there's always a first I guess. Not very likely I would say.

    What was the condition of the wire loom that goes through that little black channel near the turbo shield? One of our aeros had badly melted wiring there where it was very close, possibly touching up against the heat shield. Perhaps moving it around exacerbated that issue for you if yours was...
  5. 1989 c900 turbo won’t crank

    C900 Workshop
    Out of curiosity what are the chances that a 1990 convertible manufactured in 02/90 has the 90 ECM you mentioned jvanabra? Easy way to tell? Is it located in the passenger footwell area behind carpet?
  6. 2.8t Vtuner, anyone else get boost spikes?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I don't have that but I paid attention to it tonight and it goes all the way to the end of the third red hash mark under full throttle third gear and higher (basically all the way to the end of the marks)
  7. Traction Control Failure Warning

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Can do weird stuff on first start after battery has been disconnected for a bit. If it has returned since then, then something else is up.

    If no luck here, you can get these on ebay for relatively cheap.

    Well into the red, enough that it illuminates the turbo gauge when night panel is activated. Vtuner stage 0
  10. Clarion OEM Radio - any way to determine if similar part# would work?

    Thanks jvanbra & PablowRock!
  11. Clarion OEM Radio - any way to determine if similar part# would work?

    C900 Workshop
    Is there a cross reference available someplace for the OEM Clarion radios for C900 (1990, turbo with separate factory equalizer, US Market)? Specifically, I'm trying to determine if a 02 47 007 (additional # on clarion tag PU-9206B) will work for a replacement to existing 02 47 098 (additional...

    Haha yes. Do keep us posted on reliability of the Alfa, it's on my short list for next addition. I don't say replacement because the 9-3 Aero will always have more value to me than what I could sell it for so I'll probably just keep it until the wheels fall off. Need more garage bays.

    When my fuel pump was failing it would cause hesitation issues (but I didn't know it was the fuel pump at the time). Luckily in all Saabs that we've ever had the fuel pumps failed the same way. Not while being driven. They all created a no-start issue after having been parked. Beat on the bottom...

    Right! My OCD was put at ease with all the spray bottles equally spaced and oriented in the same direction. lol

    Generally speaking, for 4-cyl Aero 05/06 is better as electrical and early model issues were worked out of the cars and this was before the intake valve issue surfaced on 07+ models (GM inferior part change around model year 07). If looking at 07+ models, you want to make sure the seller has...

    Are you looking for 4-cylinder or 6-cylinder? I personally would avoid AWD but I'm sure others would disagree with me.
  17. 06 Aero no start no crank advice what to try next needed

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I second abs module. Had same issue, replaced and fixed all issues with dash lights, freezing gauges, a/c kicking off, and hot restart issue. You can try tapping on the abs module plug firmly, or jiggle the plug and see if it starts. That worked for nearly a year (progressively got worse) until...

    Sonnax is supposed to be good, don't have any first hand experience. Search for threads with that name. Have you tried a fluid flush/fill?
