  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I purchased a 2008 9-3 convertible few weeks ago. It has these issues: 1- Sometimes does not start even if battery is fully charged. I then have to move around battery cables and it then starts 2- It has check engine and Airbag lights on all the time and sometimes ABS and Brake lights also...
  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Over the years, the lens on my top mounted stop light has degraded and cracked to the point that it's letting water in when it rains, and I get failure warnings until the light is removed and drained. At 140 bucks new, I decided to try getting an aftermarket light to work. I went with the Kaper...

    Hey all, Under hard acceleration or a very bumpy terrain, my "brake" light on the dash illuminated and a chime is heard from the SID. Then it'll flicker sporadically and disappear. It's obviously an electrical issue, maybe a short of some kind. But what does that light mean? I'm thinking a...

    What years are compatible to replace a 1998 900-s hatchback's third brake light? Mine fell out while driving (eye roll) and I have a piece of red plastic stuck over the hole. The light assembly fell inside the opening, the lens is somewhere on America's highway system. I'd like to know if...
  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi all, I have always had some interesting electrical issues with my SAAB. However the one that recently started happening concerns me. At first it seemed like whenever I made a sharp left turn the brake light on the dash would illuminate and eventually the center dash warning light with the...
  6. C900 Workshop
    So I noticed today that both my brake lights were out and only the one in the window works. I checked fuses (fine) and replaced the bulbs even though they weren't burnt out. Still nothing. According to the diagram i found here...

    2001 9-3 Convertible Hi Everyone, My first time posting, but I've been reading posts for a years. I have the Brake Light Failure Message on my SID, but when I look at all the lights, they seems to be working fine. My process: -I can't tell, but the "third" brake light on the spoiler might...
  8. 9-5 Workshop
    Over this past summer I bought my first car and first Saab! Let me say I have fallen in love with it. Its a black '02 9-5 and I have loved it every second no matter what goes wrong. However, I have had a series of error codes come on the SID. First was the SERVICE THEFT ALARM message that...

    Hello, I recently swapped the engine in my 1999 9-3 because it threw a few bearings. Got it back on the road a few weeks ago, and I have a CEL on due to a bad oxygen sensor. Recently, my ABS/Brake light combo has been on in my dash. When it first came on, my brake pedal would vibrate when I...
  10. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi Saab-Lovers, I have had my 1999 Saab 9-3 for about two years now. Up until recently, like 3 months ago, it has been running fine. I did have it parked through the winter as I live in a snowy area and could just walk to work. I had it smogged in March and the tires changed. Since the tires...
  11. 9-5 Workshop
    So I'm about to start doing a hybrid of exterior body parts with a First 1st gen style (98-01) and the Second 1st gen style (02-05) 9-5 Aero. And possibly something from a 9-3 (nothing crazy, I'll explain when I get to that point). I'm starting with the rear. What I want to do is keep the...
  12. 9000 Workshop
    I am a fairly new owner of a 1997 Saab 9000 Aero, which has been giving me trouble with the brake, tail, and dash lights. When I bought the car, the owner said that the "brake light out" indicator on the dash would not turn off, but that all of the rear lights were functional. A couple weeks...

    I was in an accident about 10 days ago (not my fault!!!). Sustained minor body damage, but I now have a problem with my brake pedal. When I take my foot off the pedal it it not returning enough to depress the relay and cut off the brake light. I have to put my toe behind the pedal and pull it...

  16. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a '99 Saab 9-3. After I drive the car for about 10 minutes and it gets warmed up, the speedometer stops working and at the same time the ABS and brake light comes on. I took it to a dealer and they gave me a run around and asked for $600 just to find out the problem. A local auto...

    Hi guys, I've searched all over Google for a definitive answer on this question, but I think I've got a new spin on a common problem. I've got problems with the rear lights on my '01 Saab 93. I think it's gremlins!! When in park or drive, the two running light bulbs (21/5s) on the left...
  18. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I bought my Saab yesterday, great car but there are a few minor problems with it: 1. When I press the auto up for the driver side window it will go all the way up then come back down about 1/4 of the way. I guess it's tripping some kind of hand sensor causing it to come back down. Is there a...
