  2. OG 9-3 ACC Blowing Hot Air Only

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So my acc was working a few months ago (tested it during spring to see if it need anything, worked fine). Right now, it only blows hot air. The compressor kicks in, so that's working, and if i turn the temp all the way down low - i can feel it blowing a bit cool (not cold at all, but not hot)...
  3. AC Only Blowing On Feet?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    The AC in my car only blows out of the lower vents no matter what setting the manual climate control panel is set to. The air blows cold and increases and decreases when adjusted but when I change the settings for which vents I want it to come out of, no luck. Any ideas on what could be causing...

  5. AC/Heater Blower Motor

    9-5 Workshop
    Recently acquired a 2006 9-5 wagon. I was told the AC did not work but upon inspection it is the blower motor not working. Does not work on any settings whether heater or AC related. My question is what is the most common reason for blower motor not to work on a Saab 9-5?
  6. A/C Problems with my 1998 900 SE

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi Friends. My A/C stopped working. I checked all relays, fuses and connections. Then I checked the flap motor behind the ACC unit and it is good. Then I checked the flap motor next to the audio amp, and the flap mechanism was stuck. I unstuck it, and the A/C seems better. But that motor moved...
  7. 2007 9-3 AC compressor cuts out when it rains

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've been having a weird AC issue for the last year or so that's been too intermittent to pin down. I've looked through other threads and gotten some hints, but haven't found this same problem. I was hoping I could list the symptoms and see if anyone can help. AC blows super cold when it's...

  9. 2006 AC Compressor

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello! So, my mechanic says my AC compressor is weak, and that is what is making it blow warm air instead of cold. He also said he couldn't do any better than $1235 to fix it, and I that should either find cheaper parts than he can or find a new car! Anyway, I found a few outlets selling a...
  10. Saab 9-5 AC blows only hot air

    9-5 Workshop
    Hello! I have a 9-5 that blows mostly hot air to passenger side. If temperature is set to lowest possible, it may sometimes blow also colder air, but mostly warm independent on the setpoint temperature on the panel. I read the fault codes by pressing OFF+AUTO, that showed error codes 1 and 10...

    So, my 2008 9-3 Aero fuel pump was going and I went to my local mechanic here as I couldn't get to the SAAB specialist we like up in Woodstock, VT Autobarn. These mechanics replaced the pump, I pick the car up yesterday and the climate system thermometer wasn't working. It just read --.. I was...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a manual transmission 98 900s Turbo. The problem I'm having is that when I turn on the air conditioner or heater, the engine revs up to about 3k and then drops back down to 2k and back up and down like that until I turn the A/C off. The interval of the revs is fairly momentary, almost...

    9000 Workshop
    The air conditioning on my 1996 9000 CS has not worked since I bought it 5 years ago. I moved to California and the past weekend it was 105 degrees so I've decided to look into fixing the AC. I checked all of the fuses and all of the relays and they are all working. The compressor does not kick...
  15. voltage fluctuation at idle rpm with new alternator and AC on

    9-5 Workshop
    The alternator in my 2002 9-5 died, so I replaced by a refurbished one. This is the hardest job imaginable on a SAAB. Very difficult. I do not want to go there again. All was OK in winter, but now it's summer; when I turn on the AC, if I stop at a traffic light, the lights and displays start...
  16. 2003 Saab 9-3 Arc Sedan A/C Problem

    Hi guys, I've searched several forums and all over the internet for an answer to my question. I bought my 2003 Saab 9-3 Sport Sedan used. When I bought it, the A/C would blow out hot air. I figured it only needed a recharge but I was wrong. The A/C Compressor won't turn on. I have tried taking...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Last year my ac would kick on for a bit and cause a rough idle. It would blow semi cool air for a little bit and then stop. Now I turn it on and the fan just blows hot air, ac condenser does not kick on at all. So I said eh, gotta be the system needing a recharge. Come to find out, the system is...
  19. Air conditioning resets settings to default

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have a 2005 Saab 9-3. It is probably the 2006 model(made in November). Just purchased it couple of weeks ago. When I start the car the A/C starts immediately. I didn't really like it so wanted to get rid of this feature. I checked the user manual which says: Hit Customize, go to Climate...
  20. Perfectly good A/C system

    C900 Workshop
    Out of curiosity, would you remove your A/C system when it is in perfect working condition? I will hopefully be completing the timing chain job along with a new crank pulley over the winter (in two months). I have maybe used the A/C twice when I purchased the 86 SPG 9 months ago, I just dont...
