  1. Tech II Workshop
    Hey guys, I am losing my mind over here. I have tried multiple times to add my new CIM to the car (with belonging key) but it fails everytime. I get past all the checks and questions but after that, when it's saying "Writing Configuration", it then tells me to remove key, place key, remove key...

    Last week we (me and my father) bought a used Saab 9-3 2.0t cabrio 2007 model with a faulty ecu. We have a used car part store but we don't have any working ecu just a bunch of faulty ones. Buying a working used ecu will cost us around 700€. I saw This vid online and I have an ecu with the same...

    My 9-3 (2008) ECU feels very hot, I believe the reason it went dead last week when I got stuck in a very slow moving traffic jam for 3 hours. (I'm in a warm climate country in equator). If heat is the enemy of the 9-3 ECU, has anyone thought of insulation the whole ECU (leaving the connector...

    I recently had the ECU of my 04 9-3 sent out to be reprogrammed and when it came back and i put it back in the car, it wouldn't start. The starter does not spin at all. I can turn the key, although there is no "click" when you put it in, which there used to be before. The steering wheel lock is...

    Hey all, I’ve been trying to nail down a parasitic drain but the amp reading jumps from 1.4A down to .2A when hooked up between battery negative and ground cable so no luck with checking fuses. Battery drains below 12V within 2 days. My tech2 says there is no communication in the O bus after...

    2002 SAAB 9-3 manual I was driving and then my car started to jerk as though it was getting no gas. It shutdown, I’d start it up and it would drive another 20 feet and stall again. I ran the codes and got P1300. A mechanic told me I needed a new MAF sensor. I got a new one, off brand, and...
