    05 arc Okay so I’m just double checking everything I can before I replace my CIM I’m reading all the DTC codes on my tech 2 and I got the cim code “b1445 01 trigger circuit open/short to B+” what’s the exact issue that code represents? I can’t find out what that means anywhere
  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, I have a 2005 9-3 sedan with ~80k miles. Occasionally, the check engine light will turn on and the car will enter limp mode without warning. The last time this happened, I was on a highway and the car suddenly stalled, with no way to move again until I reset the check engine light (which...

    Howdy, first time on a forum so excuse me if I somehow mess this up. I’m having an issue where the radio, A.C, and all the lights inside/outside work fine when I turn the ignition on, but there’s no crank or start. The battery is good at 12.4v (also load tested it). The starter is new (just...

    First post, Excited to see what people have to say. Ok, so I've had my 9-3 Arc for a few months, and I know I'm going to keep this car basically forever. It came red, but I decided to paint it satin black. Got to be the best car I've driven. On my many cruises I find myself wanting more from the...

    2005 Saab 9-3 2.0t sedan So I was looking in my trunk and noticed that there are, what appears to be, empty slots for 6x9 speakers back there. Are there wires installed to put speakers in? Or any info on wiring them myself? Also, I have heard that there is a aux cord under the center console...

    This fell out from under the dash on the driver's side of my 2005 9-3. Drivability does not seem effected. I took the plastic off and looked up under there, but can't see where it might be missing from. Any ideas?

    Hi all, Out of nowhere I started getting a 'steering wheel lock malfunction' message from my 2005 Saab 9-3 when the key was inserted. The key won't turn, and obviously car won't start. Have tried disconnecting battery, fuses, etc. etc. Finally got it towed to a local shop, and they say there...

    Hello, I have a 2005 Saab 9-3 Linear. About 2 months ago it suddenly died on the highway. The car acted like the alternator was dead, and was running off of the battery. Jump cables would not help. I figured the battery might have been damaged by the dying alternator. I went back to get the...

    Wondering if anyone knows of any good Saab body shops around the Denver area that do quality cosmetic work and/or performance mod's. At this point, primarily pursuing initial cosmetic work on 2005 9-3 Linear, i.e. debadge, chrome tips, new Griffin emblems etc.
  12. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm new to the forum and to cars/mods. I apologize in advance for stupid questions and horribly inaccurate terminology. I have a 2005 9-3 Linear and I'm interested in adding chrome tips to the stock exhaust system. I would assume I need to cut the bumper lip, or buy an aftermarket rear skirt...
