  2. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello again. This time my 2004 9-5 Arc wagon recently died on the road. I was coasting down a hill and when I started to climb up the other side the car had lost basically all power. I would press the accelerator and the rpms would go down. So I coasted to the side of the road and sat, and as...
  3. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    As of recently I had my transmission rebuilt because I lost 4th and 5th gear. Before bringing it to the shop the motor was fine it ran and sounds perfectly normal, fresh oil. It occasionally threw a p0018 code but ran fine and I know that these saabs will throw that faulty code. But I would...
  4. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I do have a Tech 2 and I’m not afraid to use it along with an old laptop with XP that runs globaltis. i’m not trying to get the car to start and run perfectly because it’s probably going to go to the junkyard or be parted. The car needs to be moved and I prefer to do it under its own power...

    Hello everyone, I have a 1990 Saab 900s. When I try to start the car it will turn over without firing up, but when I turn the key back, it will sputter a bit sometimes.

  7. 9-5 Workshop
    I purchased a 2004 Saab 9-5 Aero (113K miles) in August (love it) and drove it for a couple of months with no issues. It died while driving about a month ago and would not restart, so I had it towed home. After some research and being a DIY guy, I purchased a Tech 2 clone and spent a few weeks...
  8. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi guys, I’m trying to find out what is wrong with my car. I have to say that the inner spring in the ignition switch was broke (didn’t return to the start position) so I always have to turn it manually to avoid burning the starter. Also, the barrel were the key is inserted is very loose, you...
