  1. 9-5 Workshop
    I have a P1230 code on my 2002 9-5 Aero -- dead throttle body. I opened up the electric motor side of the throttle body and all wiring insulation has crumbled to dust. Tried calling BBA Remain. (I've seen that recommended on some of the forums.) BBA said they currently have no rebuilds for...

    Just picked up a garage queen '03 Saab 9-5 Aero with 83K, silver w/tan interior. Have owned four other Saabs: '69 Sonett, '72 96, 1990s era 900 SE, '96 9000, all manuals but the last, a Sentronic 5-speed. Loved them all, and love the new drive so far, very fast and smooth, but... the lovely...

    Just bought a 2003 9-5 Aero sedan w/ about 116k on the odo. Really nice car with a few issues, but the price was right. I took it to a Saab specialist shop before the sale to get it checked out, and they quoted me some prices that seem kind of crazy, but then again, I don't know the ins and...

    EDIT: My sunroof opens and closes, but the sunroof doesn't seem to lift the back end up to make it level. There is a very load air current audible from within the vehicle when driving. I've tried manually closing the sunroof with a screwdriver but it will not go any farther than where it is at.

    Hello everyone, I just registered as we're having some problems with our 2001 9-5 Aero wagon, newly acquired as a gift from my mother. After some initial problems with the battery which required replacement, everything's been running smoothly enough since, although recently there's been a...

    Hi, I'm Casper, I recently bought a Saab 9-5 Aero Estate built in 2004 (MY05). I've driven about 1500 km now and I love the thing to bits. The odometer says 156.000. It's 170 Black and runs on ALU52's, which need a big overhaul to make them look pretty again. I'll be running them for two...

    Alright, so I have a 2001 Saab 9-5 Aero. Had ACC codes 08 and 13, blowing hot as hell on the drivers side, nice and cold on the passenger side. Had previously replaced just the lever on the drivers side, not the shaft/lever. Well the shaft had cracked and was causing issues. So I purchased the...

    I have a 2003 9-5 Aero. My front right tire sounds like hamsters spinning on a wheel. Almost positive I need a new front right tire wheel bearing. Does anyone know of an affordable priced dealer out there? Or anyone who sells on ebay? Called the official service center in my area and they...

    To all, I have an 05' 9-5 2.3 turbo that I have lost my only key for. I understand that in order to get a new key I must replace the TWICE module and pair it with a new key; which as we all know, is not cheap. I do want to make the investment but before I do, I would like to know if there...

Also...

    Hi folks! I received a code that told me my coolant sensor is bad. So I did the propers and replaced both the sensor and the thermostat. I've only restarted it a few times since the replace, but the engine light is still on (SID says check is ok). Any thoughts on this? It's happening on a...
