  1. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello, I'm driving 2003 9-5 Aero. She drives cool and everything is fine except shitty brakes. When I brake hard(hard enough to activate ABS), suddenly front RH brake locks up. Even I pull the brake pedal off, brake is keeping locked up for a sec, and then released. It seems like rear LH brake...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello everyone!!! I newly acquired my 2002 Saab 9-5 vector 2.0t 185 and I absolutely love it. When buying the car, I knew it had an oil leak which my mechanic told me came from the oil pressure relief valve. When I first got the car I replaced all filters and did an oil change along with new...

    Trying to find the closest longest lasting cassette to stock, and came up with two options. eSaabParts has one for sale but it's not SEM. Link here. Second option is Rock Auto's NGK. From what I've been seeing, some have said NGK made the original cassettes. Link here. I want the closest...

    I noticed my side dashboard fuse panel only has 7.5amp - 30amp, where all online information recommends 5amps, and some say 1-30 on generic forums. (Not specific to my camera). The dash cam is a Viofo A119 V3, and it comes with a fuse tap for “always on fuses” and one for “on when car is on”...

    Hi, My 2003 9-5 with paddle shifters was all good until I sent away my SiD to be repaired. The guy had all sorts of personal issues and it was delayed so he just sent me another one. It is throwing a transmission light on the dash and the paddle shifters no longer work. I've read this can be...

    Just had a CEL come about then immediately disappear. According to another forum it could just be the DIC acting up? The car is a 2006 9-5 Wagon. Anywho it was raining pretty hard for whatever that’s worth. I was sitting at a stop sign and did a power slide, riding out first gear until it...
  7. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello! Recently had a DIC hard failure at 110,000 miles. I was pulling a trailer up a hill on old plugs... don't do that. Put in a spare DIC and it worked fine, went 500 miles before changing plugs when the new DIC arrived. Within 100 miles of the new DIC ($$OEM$$) and plugs (NGK BCPR6ES) the...

    I know, I know. There's a bunch of great threads on this. However, I have a small twist to my problem. 1) It's the same thing that lots of other guys on the forum have had — you can still adjust the cabin fan speed, but the output is severely reduced. Maybe 60-70% less. The fan itself still...

    Hello, has anyone done a OEM navigation retrofit into a 2006-2009 9-5? I'm interested in possibly doing it to my 2008 9-5 Aero (My 9-5 has every option apart from navigation and figure I'd finish it off) and was wondering if anyone has done it. Curious what parts are necessary and how much work...

    Hi everyone, After changing a coolant hose and refilling the system with coolant, the engine light came up a few days later. I imagine that it might be something else, but has anyone had this issue? When I get out of the car, the engine "smells" even with the hood down. I assume it's because...

    Hello All! I'm seeking guidance on diagnosing my car's intermittent starting issues. On the first start attempt, the car will start, stumble, and quickly stall; only to be restarted and run completely fine. It only seems happen when the car is cold and has been sitting overnight, so I don't...

    Hello folks! I'm back with another issue with my beloved Saab here. I've cross posted this to a few FB groups, if you've seen me on there :D. My 01 9-5 failed my local OBD2 emissions inspections, but not for any actual emissions related stuff. They claim they can't hook up via OBD2 port to...

    Does anyone have experience with the Standard Motor Products throttle bodies? I haven't been able to find much information on them, I think Hella is the OE manufacturer but SMP throttle bodies are $100 less.

It's been raining past two days here, and I noticed my alarm kept going off so I unplugged the battery and let...
