    Over the years my 2006 2.8L 9-3 Aero-Combi has occasionally indicated a traction control failure. Usually goes away after shutting down and restarting, always in the winter. A few days ago I washed the car, and immediately had a multiple system failure that hasn't resolved. The nav froze and...

    So on my drive home one night my car gave me the "Stability Control Failure" warning. The only other warning (or tick) it has ever given me is "Left Turn Light Failure", it would just blink at a different speed than my other turn signal. The next day it started but after my first stop it...

    Hi, I have a 2006 9-3 2T wagon. I bought it for my son as a first car, and had nothing but trouble after about 4 months of owning it. My first problem was getting the codes P0204, P0203, P0202, P0201 & P0245, accompanied with the gas smell, white smoke and the other standard issues. I took it...

    I had the clutch in my 2006 9-3 2.0T replaced about a month and a half ago. Since then, the car was popping out of first and fifth gear fairly regularly. Today as I took off from a red light, there was a loud bang and first, third and fifth gear stopped working. When I tried to put it in first...

    So about 2 weeks ago I bought a 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T. Checking it about, everything ran great, it ran smooth, nice A/C, etc. Well not even 4 days after owning it the traction control failure warning came on twice and the clock reset itself and it was just acting weird. Upon research it sounded...

    2006 Saab 9-3. I'm having issues with the clutch pedal. Pedal is about an inch from the floor and will not depress far enough to put the car in gear. However, I can push (force) the car into first gear and then drive it while shifting gears without the use of the clutch. The clutch does not slip...
