  1. Revising Clone Tech2 Hardware, Why and How

    Tech II Workshop
    We need a Tech 2 or a different car. We prefer the former. From perusing the Tech2 Workshop, we understand there is a reboot problem with clones. Apparently, clones will reboot if you restart the car with the thing hooked up? But, a few electrical components can be replaced to fix this...
  2. 9-5 ARC Sporadic electronic system failure

    SAAB 9-5 ARC 2004: Sporadic electronic system failure. Christmas tree illumination of all sensor lights with key in position #3(on). Gas gauge spikes then falls to empty within 2 seconds. Will start but automatic transmission clangs into gear and requires high RPM to move (limp home?). Sometimes...
  3. 45 secs to go through electronics before starting

    9-5 Workshop
    Saab 95 2004 2.3 petrol. 130,000 miles. Love it but has a few foibles. The main one being that it is quite temperamental to start. Sometimes. Sometimes I turn the key and she starts immediately. Other times I can turn the key, hold it and it will be 45 secs before she starts. It goes in phases...
  4. Crazy Parasitic Loss

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So two days in a row I had to jump my car in the morning. I take a closer look day 2 and the battery is from 2012 so I got a new one simply due to age. Just to be sure, with the new battery I did a test for parasitic loss and it is drawing 4.85 amps over 5 fuses!:o:evil: Yes, this is after a...
  5. 2003 95 Aero Seats always hot

    9-5 Workshop
    A few weeks ago the driver's seat began toasting my hind end. Pulled fuse 38 to prevent being burnt to a crisp and now I wonder whether anyone has tried repairing the switch itself. I see lots of posts about replacing the switch or replacing the illumination bulb, but none about tearing the...

    9-5 Workshop
    I could really use this forum's help. I have own a 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero and think it's absolutely one of the best cars I've ever owned. It's also the fifth Saab I've owned, so I'm partial to the brand. I have recently started getting a dashboard warning, "shift to park," whenever I turn my car...

    Intermittent electronic error messages and behavior. My 2006 9-3 is suddenly having all kinds of electrical issues.
