    It seems the power to of my rear door locks suddenly doesn't work, but I can still manually lock it by pulling/pushing it. I'm thinking it could be due to cold weather, but I'm not sure. Any ideas? Thanks!

    The passenger-side door lock does not function currently unless manually locked/unlocked. I'm assuming this is a problem with the actuator itself and not a fuse since it is only on the one lock. Is replacing the actuator an easy process? Is this a common failure? Thanks!

    Hi everyone! I've got an issue with driver's door lock. When I try to lock the door by remote, every door locks except driver's one. I can hear that it tries to lock but unsuccessfully. I saw that when lock fails there's no indicator flash on locking the car. Yesterday I disassembled the door...

    I thought I would post my repair as I have not found on the forum a detailed description of how to disassemble the 9-5 door lock actuator. My rear left door would open intermittently and less and less frequently. When finally it was unlocked and I could manage to undo the lock I found a sealed...

    Hi all, After storing my 2006 Saab 9-3 Convertible Arc for about 3 months, my passenger door doesn't always receives power. When I start the car, the passenger door has power (lights in panel turn on), but after a second or so, the lights go out indicating the door lost power. If the door...

    So I turn to the forum for another Fix. I have a 2006 saab 9-3 aero V6. So basically my car sat (2-3 weeks) for a little while, while I was waiting for a repair part to come in (12847287 and 12588555) after they cracked while changing out the ignition coils and spark plugs. After that I tried...

    Hi, my driver's door is stuck in the locked position, it refuses to open. I'm getting tired of climbing in/out through the passenger door :-( The tab pops up/down, but neither the inside/outside handle will open the door. I've tried hitting it with an open hand at the same time as I hit the...

    I have a 2003 9-3 SE convertible. This past weekend, I clicked the key fob to unlock the drivers door, then clicked it a second time to unlock the passenger door. I could hear the mechanism in the passenger door move and the door lock went half way up then went back down, staying locked...

    I am having door locking/unlocking issues. Cannot use the key fab or the button in the centre console. I can lock and unlock the drivers door with the key. Hopefully someone has a clue as to what problem the sound is alluding to. Thanks.

    So yeah, I'm having a bit of a conundrum here. I LOVE fixing my car. I find myself tinkering with it constantly just to learn more. I find it addictive, and my car is oh so much better now than when I originally bought it. To the point, my rear driver's side door automatic lock sometimes...
