  1. ABS fault = base boost?

    9000 Workshop
    Hi everyone, the 1995 Aero (manual) I just bought had the ABS relay pulled by the previous owner when he had ABS issues and couldn't figure out a fix. I dont need or want ABS, or certainly not enough to fix it. is it true that no ABS relay / ABS system fault will keep me in base boost? (the...
  2. Wanted: 9-5 ABS Control Unit and Hydraulic Pump from Same Car

    Parts for Sale/Wanted - North America
    My current situation is that my ABS unit went out. Sent it to BBA for a reman and it still didn't work - TCS, ABS lights and no speedo. Bought a new unit off of ebay and I cannot reprogram it to my car with TechII. It is the same issue as in this video: I called my old mechanic who told me on...
  3. MAF, ABS, and Coolant What do they have in Common?

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi Guys, I've got a 2005 9-5 Arc that's been giving me some weird issues. I've been having the coolant gauge turn itself from operating temp to 0 for about 4 years now. No real pattern to it, hot outside the car, cold outside, doesn't seem to effect it other than it gets up to operating temp...

    9-5 Workshop
    Within the last few months my son's 2002 9-5 Aero started showing the "trifecta" of warning lights. That is a term that us BMW owners refer to the ABS / Traction control / DSC warning lights. On my BMW it indicates that the ABS module is bad, and it's common knowledge that you remove the ABS...
  5. Before I refurbish ABS module

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello All, Here is how my panel looks like:My panel. It does not stay this way always, it just flashes occasionally. I know that common fix is to refurbish ABS module, but I wonder if there something else I should check before I mail our my ABS module for refurbishment? Also, I am not...
  6. Another ABS Issue

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I just picked up a 2002 9-3 SE to replace my daily driver which is about to die. I've been able to fix everything with the exception of the dreaded ABS / Warning / TCS off lights. Since the ABS module itself is the common culprit, I sent mine off to BBA Reman. They tested it, and it's ok. Aside...
  7. 9k carlsson had a shake down run, but has ABS light on continuously when driving

    9000 Workshop
    Finally had the chance to get the 9k out on the road properly for a shake-down run. Tested the clutch and gear changing and all good. Tested the front brakes since I replaced rotors last time I was at the car in Feb, and that's all good too. Did about 50 km round trip with about 20 km on 110 kph...

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi, i am needing some help here as i don't know who to turn to! I have a 2002 9-5 Aero which suddenly had ABS failure. It showed an "open solenoid" message, so i was advised it was likely the ABS module was faulty. I duly sent the module away and the technician said there were faults showing...
  10. Seemingly unsolvable brake issue

    9000 Workshop
    Hi good ladies and gentlemen! First post here. So I have 1995 9000 Aero, which I love. A couple of months ago, I started to see problems going WOT, where the clutch would be slipping a lot unless I applied only gentle force on the throttle. Clutch hadn't been changed in 5 years or so, I thought...
  11. Saab 9-5 ABS Problems

    9-5 Workshop
    I was changing my wheel bearing/hub assembly and while I was doing this a cog sprung out after I removed the hub. I'm pretty sure that was the cog the wheel speed sensor uses to measure the speed of the wheel. I also noticed it was split in one place. Not sure if that is supposed to be like...
  12. ABS Error Light

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My 2003 Arc 2.0t auto sedan just got a new tranny and heat exchanger installed, I flushed the coolant and went for a drive: ABS warning light came on. I think this pic below shows the problem: AFAIK that is the ABS module and I am guessing there should be a little rubber nipple covering that...

    Hello, Just got hold of my soon-to-be winter car: a white '93 5dr 900 LPT. Good body, some cosmetic work to do but overall an excellent buy at 300 EUR... It's the first 900 with ABS I have to deal with and I'm looking for some preliminary advice on the issue I'm facing as it's slightly...
  14. Still Have Christmas Tree After Module Rebuild - ABS TCS BRAKE /!\

    9-5 Workshop
    Hey Guys, Looking for a little advice. I bought a 2003 9-5 Aero about 2 weeks ago and I'm still working on an issue with the ABS. I need to clear up the issue so I can pass Virginia inspection, or the car is dead in the water. Previous owner stated that the module needed to be rebuilt. I...
  15. ABS Question- New here!

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I just bought a 1999 9-3 2.0L 5 speed, 4 dr hatch, for a run around/gas mileage car. So I noticed that when I hit the brakes it does the famous abs sound and feels like abs kicking in. However, I pulled the 50A abs fuse, abs light, cel, and Brake! lights came on, but the noise and feel went...

    Good Morning, If anyone can help me out with a link to the WIS for a 2003 9-5 Aero showing how to remove the pressure sensor from the back of the ABS hydraulic sending unit (the aluminium block with the green brake lines) just behind the fuse box, I would appreciate it. I downloaded a copy of...

    9-5 Workshop
    Good Morning Everyone, I purchased a 2003 9-5 Aero about 2 weeks ago. The previous owner had done some damage to the back end, so he sold it to me for next to nothing. My intent was to do some work on it and have a decent car to run errands in that gets better mileage than my truck. I took...

  19. ABS only works when ABS light comes ON??

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've been getting the triple threat (ABS, Traction Control, and ESP failure) for a while now and I've had my mechanic look at the wiring (commonly gets eaten at from how its held up inside the car apparently) but he says it checks out. Must need a new sensor i guess, but I'm not really worried...
  20. ABS Reluctor Rings

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, I have a 2002 Saab 9-5 Aero, Manual trans @ 160k miles. When I press the brakes at low speed, more often than not, the ABS goes off. I have been told by many Saab veterans that one or both of my ABS rings are bad. I found this site, which has the rings...
