  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So basically, the other day I tried to start my Saab to go to work. Completely dead. The model is a 2004 9-3 arc, automatic, 108,000 on motor and unknown mileage on body. Front headlight does not work (despite replacing bulb) and the radio doesn’t work either. One other thing that might affect...

    This issue might be similar to what Triac is experiencing (see separate thread). 2002 Viggen four door with 216,000 miles (Steel Grey, very important to know that). Everything worked, up until recently. The master door lock switch no longer locks or unlocks all four doors. It did actuate the...
  4. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    For several weeks now, when I turn the engine off and remove the key from the ignition, the daytime running lights (DRLs) remain on. This problem happens sporadically, about one out of every two times that I park and turn the car off. About half of the time that the problem occurs, I can get...

    Hey all, first time posting here, but I've gotten some invaluable advice so far from lurking, so thanks to all for your expertise! The SID (the one which shows the temperature, radio station, etc) on my 2006 9-3 Aero Sedan (Automatic) flickers on and off intermittently while driving. It...
  6. 9-5 Workshop
    2008 9-5 destroys batteries at the rate of one a year. Located in upper Midwest, garaged at night, driven about 8,000 miles per year. Electrical system checks out ok every year when battery fails. No known drain, heat or other issues. I find it hard to believe that every Walmart battery is...
  7. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Sorry if this has been discussed, but I have been searching diligently and coming up blank. About one month ago, I turned off the ignition and instead of the usual "pull the key out and the steering wheel lock clicks", the engine shuddered as it turned off and the car lost all electrical power...
  8. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have a 2004 Saab 9-3 Linear that in early May 2017 died while I was driving. The engine cut while I was accelerating and would not turn back on. It had happened before where the engine died while I was driving, but it usually would just turn back on after a few minutes or even resetting the...
  9. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi guys, my ICM 2 and SID on my saab 93 arc don't power on. I found out that my AC motor connector melted from electricity. Could this mean my ICM was fried? Also, does the ICM lead power to the SID? Thanks
  10. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi all, I have always had some interesting electrical issues with my SAAB. However the one that recently started happening concerns me. At first it seemed like whenever I made a sharp left turn the brake light on the dash would illuminate and eventually the center dash warning light with the...
  11. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So I just got a really nice 2006 9-3 Aero, but I noticed something odd. When I started the car the first few times it was fine, but now I am getting no noise from the turn signals. Also, on the screen where you turn the selector and press in to turn the radio on, well it just wont go on at all...
  12. 9000 Workshop
    Hello, I am extremely new to the Saab world, so forgive me if I sound ignorant, but I read through the faq and didn't find my issue. I am so new to the Saab world in fact, that on the way home from purchasing my new/first Saab I stopped to get gas and upon leaving the station my car will not...

  17. C900 Workshop
    A fun and fantastic two weeks of driving my 1994 SAAB 900 Turbo Convertible, and I've hit my first real problem. The battery died on me. I got a jump from a friendly passerby, then half way home the battery died on me while driving. Damn. Sounds like the alternator. Ok, I dissect the problem...
