  1. 89 9000 - No brake lights

    9000 Workshop
    Thanks for the help @chengny and @davide c ; really appreciate it.
  2. 89 9000 - No brake lights

    9000 Workshop
    Yep, idiot. After finally finding the actual brake switch (there are two switches, the top one is the culprit, the bottom/easier one is for cruise control), I verified 12v on the red(!) wire. Pulled the switch and it's obvious this has been an issue before as it's been pulled apart before me...
  3. 89 9000 - No brake lights

    9000 Workshop
    As I should have suspected, I might be an idiot... On closer inspection, there are two switches on the brake pedal. Pretty darn sure I've been checking the cruise control switch... Gussing it's been the brake switch all along; will confirm shortly...
  4. 89 9000 - No brake lights

    9000 Workshop
    First off, thanks a lot for the replies (email notifications didn't seem to work); really great info. I just got home from work and am going out now to do some more troubleshooting. While I did check continuity on the fuse itself (it's good) as well as temporarily replacing with a new one, one...
  5. 89 9000 - No brake lights

    9000 Workshop
    Hi all, Trying to figure out my no-brake-lights issue that just started. None of the brake lights work, including the third brake light; all other rear lights (tail lights, reverse, turn signals) are operable. Initially checked the fuse which was fine and the bulbs are all good. Multimeter at...
  6. 1989 9000 sunroof drain exit locations?

    9000 Workshop
    OK, though I'm still interested where, exactly, the exits are, Ive gotten at least the front ones cleared. I really didn't want to but went ahead and took the air compressor to them. I was afraid of blowing off a tube in the A pillar but I think I got lucky. Once they started draining, I still...
  7. 1989 9000 sunroof drain exit locations?

    9000 Workshop
    Hi all, anyone know where the four drains for the sunroof exit the vehicle (89 9000 hatch)? Mine are plugged and I've not had luck clearing them from the top. I opened up the aquarium/false firewall lid hoping to find the exits for the front drains without finding anything promising...
  8. Stolen 1984 Saab 900 Turbo Sedan - Seattle

    C900 Workshop
    Really sorry to hear about your car Ryan. To answer your question, my car was found two houses north of 80th on 31st Ave NW in N. Ballard and, according to the crap I found inside, seems to have been run around north of the Ship Canal quite a bit. I don't think I posted about this but, in...
  9. Remove Rear Seat Back? 1984 900 4-Door

    C900 Workshop
    Thanks a lot for the reply but I got impatient and used the brute force method. One big screwdriver and some leverage and I was able to pop them out; the white bushings survived. Getting the black protective washers off each of the posts proved to be a little uglier though; one didn't make it to...

  11. Remove Rear Seat Back? 1984 900 4-Door

    C900 Workshop
    Hi all, I got my hands on a rear seatback that's in much better shape that the one in the car (middle top is completely ripped up from POs not being careful when folding down for cargo) but having trouble getting the old one out. Specifically, I've removed the steel 'snap tensioners' (or...
  12. Oxygen senser

    C900 Workshop
    In my 84 Turbo, the sensor connects to the harness at a connector clipped right at the top of the engine bay on the passenger side, maybe a foot south of the battery.
  13. Stolen 1984 Saab 900 Turbo Sedan - Seattle

    C900 Workshop
    OK, I've removed the guy's name found on the receipt in my car from my post; I'm a pretty firm believer in 'presumed innocent until...'. I haven't given the info to the police yet nor have I contacted him; I should have done at least one or the other before posting his name here... heat of the...
  14. Stolen 1984 Saab 900 Turbo Sedan - Seattle

    C900 Workshop
    kuponut, I completely agree with you. I found the same info you've mentioned late last night and, while crazy stories were brewing in my head about the adventurous web designer and what he's capable of when down on his luck, a lousy night's sleep and a day of work has brought me to my senses...
  15. Stolen 1984 Saab 900 Turbo Sedan - Seattle

    C900 Workshop
    So, after the cop left, I instantly wished I wouldn't have had him take the crap that was left in the car since he didn't look at it for more than 30 seconds, wasn't taking it as 'evidence', and it was obvious that the cops weren't going to do anything but dump it. For my own peace of mind and...
  16. Stolen 1984 Saab 900 Turbo Sedan - Seattle

    C900 Workshop
    So I got a call from Seattle PD around 11am this morning saying they found it on 80th and 31st NW - seven blocks west of my house... For fear of it getting moved again, I left work early to go check it out and get it home. When I got to my car, the first thing I noticed was a (I'm assuming...

    Seattle PD found my car. More updates later.

    C900 Workshop
    Gah, just checked the thread for the first time in a bit. Yep, I'm at 80th and 24th NW; I'm going to do a sweep today between here and Home Depot, I think. Thanks a lot for the continued comments and tips. Jil that's a great idea of scraping CL; I've been watching Seattle's but never thought...
  19. Stolen 1984 Saab 900 Turbo Sedan - Seattle

    C900 Workshop
    Thanks a lot for the sticky. I've filed a stolen vehicle report and called around to the major tow places; still nothing. I'm pretty skeptical that I'll see it again; it'll be parted out so make more money than the car itself is worth... Thanks for the concern and yes, if anyone sees...
  20. Stolen 1984 Saab 900 Turbo Sedan - Seattle

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Yeah, I've filed a stolen vehicle report and called around to the major tow places; still nothing. I'm pretty skeptical that I'll see it again; it'll be parted out so make more money than the car itself is worth... Thanks for the concern and yes, if anyone sees something around that just may...
