climate control

  1. Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    I recently went from an 03' 9-3 ARC to an 05' 9-3 Linear. I liked the look of the head unit on the ARC and want to go to the pick and pull and grab one out of a wrecked car. Does anyone know if you can just swap them out? or does it mess with the fiberoptic loop? Thanks in advance for any help!!

    The climate control on my '04 Arc works fine for the driver position, but the passenger side and back seat sometimes deliver heat when cooling is needed, and vice versa. I think it once briefly sent heat to the back seat and AC to the passenger seat, but I'm not sure. My dealer originally said...

    I recently purchased the Automated Climate Control Panel Button Kit (part# 12781996) to replace the peeling buttons on my 2005 9-3 climate panel. Replacing the buttons look a bit more complicated; I tried popping one out gently and they are really in the panel. Can anyone share any...

    Hey there SC I've done all the looking I can and can't seem to find an answer to my problem. The problem is the a/c works great for about ten minutes while I'm driving then it starts to blow warm air. It also has a funky smell that I can't really describe when it's working. The car is a 2000...

    The climate control works fine and the heat and a/c blow their proper temps but when i turn the wheel to the right when the heat is on it makes a funny whirring sounds and when i turn left the sound stops. Also, there is no heat "blowing" on the drivers feet. just the passengers.

    I have a 96 900s and it came with the turn knobs and was wondering if I could replace the knobby one with an automatic climate control and what all that would entail? Thanks

    Hello, After some particluarly heavy rain the ACC stopped working completely. A few weeks later (and after some good weather) the cabin fan same on and would not turn off. I have removed the fuse, but now need a perminant fix. There are some great details on how to solve this for the Manual...

    I have a 2008 97x. My A/C works fine in the rear but in the front it won't change between low and high. If it is blowing on low and I put it up to high and put it in neutral and restart the car, it sometimes starts blowing on high. Since the rear works I ruled out a compressor problem. I'm...

    I have a 2004 Saab 9-3 Linear with manual climate control. System was working fine up until last Sunday. It was cool out that day, maybe 55 degrees Fahrenheit and rainy. I went to turn the temperature knob to all the way cold (usually just leave it on that temp setting unless its really cold)...

    How can I set the climate controls on my facelift 9-5 so that on restart it will default at the manual settings I chose? If I remember correctly this involved pressing two buttons on the earlier version.;ol;

    Hi Guys, New poster and not the most mechanically inclined guy, but am willing to try. I have a 2004 Saab 9-5 Aero. Here's the issue: The temperature reading on the LCD panel usually starts off reading the correct temperature and my ACC reacts accordingly. However, in warm weather, the...

    HI, I have a 1998 9.3 convertible, and something is draining the battery. I have been through all the obvious possibilities (boot light, stereo, etc) and the only thing that stands out is a buzzing sound from around the lower left side of the climate control unit that goes on for about 5 mins...

    After warming up in freezing temperatures, I started to drive and the automatic climate control just stopped working. The display was lit with 00 and nothing was coming out of the vents, no matter what buttons were pushed. I tried to restart the vehicle and press auto + off to reset the ACC, but...

    Hi, my climate control system has gone haywire. the car is a 1999 9-3 Viggen 2 door. For example, it blows from the bottom and not out the top vents when the top vents are chosen. Also sometimes it will turn the heater on instead of the air conditioner, although this has only happened a...

    2000 9-3 Viggen So, I think there is a Fan that sucks in air from the Dashboard that lets the computer know what the inside temperature of the car is. Basically, I'm wondering what that part is called and if there is a way to fix it. It has started making a clicking / ticking sound and it...
