    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi all, My ECU is gone out (car shutting down, won't start, throwing indicative codes), so I'm on the lookout for a used one as there is apparently an international backorder to get them with no end in sight. After searching the forums, I'm still left wondering if a T8 ECU from a previous year...
  6. Multiple ECU faults suddenly appearing - can I clean the ECU contacts?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me! My Saab 9-3 2005 1.9TiD is flashing up more and more errors by the day, all looking sensor based so I'm thinking ECU failure of some kind. Can anyone advise how I might clean the terminals? It seems pointless to clean the ones that lead to each component...

  11. What would happen if I put an aero tubro in a B235E Engine without replacing ECU?

    9-5 Workshop
    My turbo is most likely bad and can't be saved. I'll find out if it can be saved with a rebuild kit this week. But if it can't be saved, I was wondering what would happen if I installed the aero turbo, the Mitsubishi TD-04, instead of the garrett turbo and didn't replace the ecu or tune it...
  12. Plug n play ecu

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Being fairly new in here, I have a question about an ECU. I need to replace mine, per my Saab mechanic. It's throwing codes everywhere and exhibiting very erratic behavior. (But only on an inconsistent basis. :D) I see that there are "plug n play" units available, but I've also read that ECU's...

    Hello - any & all help is much appreciated! None of the threads I have seen Anywhere (here, youtube, other Saab sites, etc) show pictures that look like my engine. They all say to 'Reset the throttle Body' - but mine doesn't look like what they show. I have attached pictures. I would also...
  15. Will my ecu unmarry if I disconnect it?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, recently my 2003 9-3 went back into limp mode after not doing so for about a year. I started to look for a solution and found out that there's a defect where the seals on the ecu plugs will contract in cold weather (which would make sense as it's been in the snow lately) and the solution is...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So, I have a 2003 9-3 Linear 2.0L Saab and the ECU has started making the car run finicky: loss of acceleration until I get above 30 MPH then if it comes down, say stop at a red light, it will sputter and die unless I keep my foot on the gas. A couple of codes were ran on the check engine light...
