    Hi guys, On the M25 coming past Heathrow earlier today when ABS, TC, BRAKE warning lights all come on, fuel, temperature and rev counter all drop to zero and Speedo sticks at 55 ish which I presume is the speed that I was travelling at. Whilst still rolling, put it in neutral, turned off at...
  2. 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...

  5. Replacing the backlight bulbs on the manual climate control (MCC)

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Took on a small project this morning to replace a bulb behind the MCC on my 2005 9-3. It's pretty simple really, but sometimes pics are helpful so I thought I'd share the process. If you're taking this on I'll assume you've got the MCC removed already, but if not there is a great tutorial...
  6. cluster bulb mess

    9-5 Workshop
    I got t4 / t5 wedge leds for my saab 9-5 2000 wagon. The bulbs by themselves would NOT fit inside the sockets or even want to go directly into the board. I am sure there is something I am missing out here. I wondered if these kind with a socket would do the job ...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I do not know if they are related but instrument panel lights come on when i turn on the key but go out after a few seconds. Also it asks me to test break light. I tap the break and the request goes away. The instrument cluster lights do not come on during night driving. Almost like i'm running...
  8. Replacing Instrument Panel

    9-5 Workshop
    Hello I have bought a second hand instrument panel to replace mine as most of the lights on the right hand side do not work. The problem is I didn't notice that it was off an automatic. Should I send it back before spending an age swapping them around to find that they are not compatible or is...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi all, Forgive me in advance, I'm no master mechanic and electrical stuff tends to go over my head. I own a 1997 Saab 900S 2.3L. Over the summer my alternator locked up on a trip and I was towed the rest of the way there. I spent several days of that trip running back and forth to...

  12. No Tail Lights/Dash Lights

    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...

    So grateful to find this BUSY and thoughtful forum with so many people happy to give advice and ideas. Just bought a beautiful and low miles (about 78k) 2004 9-5 and it was perfect and fun for about three weeks. Occasionally the gas guage didn't move when started but would the next time. Then...

    Saab 9-2X, 9-4X & 9-7X Workshop
    Guys half of my dashboard lights are not working. Can I replace light bulbs or do I need to replace the whole cluster? If so, will my mileage remain the same on the dash or does it require reprogramming? Thank you. :lol:

    Well when I first bought my '87 spg it only had one dash light working (one of the two larger bulbs that light up the speedometer, boost gauge, tachometer, etc.). A few days later that last light stopped working so I removed the left speaker grill and replaced every damn bulb on the backside of...
