  1. 2008 Saab Turbo X Battery Problem?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys, new user as I just bought a 08 Saab turbo X a few weeks back. Love the car and drives like a dream, however, this morning the car wouldn't start, had some sort of clicking noise. There was power to the radio, and navi. Worked fine after a boost. When I turned it on again after a 5...
  2. (?!?!?!) No start with solid red LED and parking lights... Sigh.

    9000 Workshop
    Alright guys, I've lurked on here since before I bought the saab and I've clicked every google link 10 pages deep on this, so I figured it was time to throw my own query in to the mix. Here's the top to bottom: Car has a failing brake light switch, which does't-always-but-sometimes keeps the...
  3. Best Battery - also sub/electrical issues

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Well I'm sure, "what's the best battery" threads pop up every few months, but I figure a new one wouldn't hurt for the most current pricing. I'm getting results for size 47 and size 90? Best place to get one? And to add to my thread, I also have a subwoofer (Rockford F. P5) that has stopped...

  6. Turns over...But not starting!!!

    9000 Workshop
    My battery died in my '96 Saab 9000 CS. I put a new battery in it, and tried to turn it over. The engine kept turning over but wouldn't start. My Check engine light was on prior to changing the battery, so I had a buddy hook up his scan tool, but no codes were read. Did the computer get...
