  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I need to replace my Automatic Climate Control module. I read in the Haynes manual, "Note: If a new control unit is to be fitted, access to Saab's TECH2 diagnostic equipment is necessary to save various stored values, which will need to be transferred to the new unit. If necessary, entrust...
  3. 9-5 Workshop
    My A/C's been going out on my 2000 Aero for a time. Car is not regularly driven (especially in summer for that reason). Found some good help on other threads, but still have a question based on my background gathering trying to decide to try home charge or not. Status: No cold, no compressor...

    I cannot for the life of me find any information as to the location of the low pressure refrigerant port i am assuming that it is one of the three ports on the side of the compressor but i am not sure which one it actually is, none of them are labeled with letters like some people have said. Any...

    Recently purchased 99 9-3 and the ACC panel appears to be inop, as in no power going to the ACC box itself -no lights display, buttons don't do anything, unable to pull up error codes, no hot air, no cold air, no defrost, nothing. Fuses are fine, switched out with another ACC box and still...

    I have been trying to get my 1991 Saab 900 n/a up and running to get ready to sell. My main issue besides a dying alternator is a overheating problem. I have been trying to get both fans up and running as of now I have gotten the right side fan (the one that comes on when the car starts to...

    Hello, my saab has not been able to start up with it's radio, display or a/c. The battery is perfectly fine and the car drives with no problem. The key does not make a clicking noise anymore. Fuses seem to be fine but if there are any recommendations I will make changes necessary. The backlight...

    I have a European-market Lucas CU14 car. I live in America. I need an A/C relay. In Lucas CU14 cars, this relay is in position H of the fuse/relay box. It has a switching diagram like this: Could someone who has a Lucas CU14 car with air conditioning kindly take a look at their relay/fuse box...

    Any thoughts? Could it be the relay? Ice cold air comes out slightly when moving - no blow when stopped. Sometimes have to switch temp or recirc switch to start the slight blow...any thoughts appreciated.

    So I have a lovely, black, Saab 9-3 with mods here and there, but those aren't relevant. My problem is that the AC stops working at highway speeds, and as my title states, it's not what you think. If I keep the AC at fully-cold it stays cold and blows fine, but I get cold as a dead astronaut...
  12. C900 Workshop
    It's warming up here in the southern hemisphere, and I'm trying to see what's going on with the A/C on my 900. Basically, I turn on the A/C and the compressor clutch is not engaging. Initially I though it was just a bad clutch, however I checked for voltage at the little red connector that goes...
  13. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My Saab is an '01 9-3 SE Manual. Up until today I have had heat and relatively cold A/C in my car and the fan speed could have been whatever was set and it would perform with no issues. Today I turned on my car and the ACC said the fan was on full blast but no air was coming out. I tested the...
  14. 9000 Workshop
    Hello! I suspect that my heater core is leaking, because this winter I have had coolant getting to the inside of the windscreen of my 9000 and now the A/C won't work. It was hard to remove, and tasted sweet. So I guess it is coolant, which always disappears in my car (might have a blown head...

    I haven't used the AC that much in the past few years. Two summers ago, a shop said that the AC system was dry and needed a recharge. Costs hundred bucks or so, and when it came back from the shop, it worked. It wasn't a particularly hot summer, and my SAAB is a convertible, so I didn't use...

    2006 93 2.0T Cabrio (120,000+ miles on it) - We are getting a dried film type crap on the interior of the driver's and passenger side windows (front and back) (not so much on the windshield or back window) - it was occurring mostly with the A/C, but I cleaned the windows and ran the heat full...
  18. 9-5 Workshop
    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...

    Hi guys, I have a 2003 Saab 9-3 Arc. The A/C does not blow cold. The fan works and the air comes out but it doesn't blow out cold. I was wondering if any others had similar A/C problems and could post what the problem was on their individual car. Thanks!
