  1. NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    (refer to WIS Radiator Fan System- 2 speeds, list of components) Background: I have a 1999 2.0 93 (FPT,LHD). Before recently changing thermostats (Saab or Wahler or better please** see footnote), I didn't realize the old one was just wide open and likely had been for years before I got the car...
  2. C900 Workshop
    en route to yellowstone by Jon Wall, on Flickr Hey everyone, been a while. Well, the Saab made it from Wyoming to Massachusetts with a broken motor mount and blown bypass valve but it did amazing - cruising regularly at 85, and then made the trip back west doing it all over again about a...
  3. C900 Workshop
    Hi all, I'm looking for some advice as I'm really lost on what to do at this point. The back story is this: I had the old AC lines on my car replaced along with the evaporator, etc to update the system to R134a from the original R12 freon by my usual Saab specialist mechanic. He is a...
  4. 9000 Workshop
    Hi all. The cooling fan on my 97 9000 is not coming on. I''ve researched here and other sites and have replaced the thermostat and coolant temp sensor at the back of the head, but still the temp gauge in the car reads just above low, and the fan does not turn on. I've jumped the low and high...
  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So I was driving back from a 6 mile commute visiting friends. My car starts to make strange noises (it sounded like a hose came loose), and the dash displays the battery symbol along with the triangle with (!). Although the engine never stalled, it literally sounded like I was dumping parts...
  6. C900 Workshop
    Hi all, I am recommissioning a 91 900s which has been in the garage for seven years and all going well. One small problem though is the cooling fan remains on after the car has been switched off; I need to pull the relay out to shut it off. I've changed the relay and cleaned the connections but...
  7. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Something has been killing my battery. I believe it's my cooling fan because sometimes the car will be sitting for 20 mins and the cooling fan will still be running. Where is the relay for the cooling fan located? I'd like to try and change that out first to see if it fixes the problem. I...

  9. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    The other day while parked for an hour or so running the engine/AC the AC started blowing warm air. The whole drive home the AC refused to blow cool air. After that I decided the AC was broken and would have to take it to a shop... then my wife cut it on while driving on the interstate and...
