    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop

    Once again the saab got its panties up in a bunch. Now looking at 2 codes, the notorious/ most obnoxious infamous P0300 and then theres P0507. Also got a pending code (P0116).

  3. Potential 9-5 Purchase

    9-5 Workshop
    Hello everyone, longtime lurker and Saab owner here. I've recently been given the chance to purchase an 07 9-5 Aero, but the owner describes the car as "the car jerks when you go to accelerate and the engine light starts blinking". My first instinct would be either the throttle body or the DIC...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi. I have three CEL codes P0444, P1312, and P1334 on my car. I have a 2001 9-3 SE. The 1312 and 1334 I have seen as being misfires in cylinders 1+2 and 3+4. I have also been told these two codes can be fixed by getting a new DIC. I have replaced my DIC 4 times with this car and these codes...
  6. Check engine light for knocking, misfire, and csp sensor, but car runs good

    9-5 Workshop
    Occasionally, my check engine light will come on in my 2000 saab 9-5. The codes are for misfire and knock in some or all cylinders. And sometimes, a code for the crankshaft position sensor comes up. I've replaced the sensor and it still gives that code. Even with all of those codes, it runs...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi, I have a 20019-3 SE. I have had problems with the DIC unit ever since I got my car. Each time the check engine light comes on and I receive codes saying that there are cylinder misfires (codes such as P0304 and P1334). I have replaced the DIC 4 separate times. Each replacement unit has been...
  8. P0563 : Ghost in the machine

    9-5 Workshop
    Friends, my 2005 Saab Aero wagon has recently (and more frequently) been acting erratic. 1) The red triangle and battery lights go on intermittently, almost always coinciding with acceleration (up, down, sideways). 2) Often, all dash lights will come on. Sometimes this is shortlived, sometimes...

  11. Flashing Check Engine + White Sparkplugs

    9-5 Workshop
    About 8 months ago, I was driving on the highway and CEL began flashing. It flashed for about 10 seconds and went away. When I scanned the ecu, no error codes came up. Same thing happened about three months ago and once more this past week. While CEL is flashing, there is nothing wrong with the...

    Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a great start to 2015! :) My 2006 9-3 Aero recently threw a P0496/P2187 code and figured it was time to change the EVAP purge valve. I live in a place where there aren't many shops that work with European cars (there's one a little drive away, but they charge...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I just completed a clutch replacement this month and replaced engine oil while I was down there. Car's driving wonderfully but every once in awhile when idling it will turn off. It doesn't really stutter or stumble (maybe the tiniest bit). It'll be idling right below 1k (I don't know where...

    I'm wondering if anyone has any insight to this issue. My 2003 9-5 Arc wagon started throwing a code for the front oxygen sensor shortly after I bought it. I installed a Bosch replacement and the code did not go away. Even after resetting the computer and clearing the codes, the check engine...
