  1. Instrument Panel ESP switch issues

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have a question regarding my 2004 9-3 Aero. I have been having a big issue with the ESP switch and its knob and everytime I turn it one click it jumps like 10 clicks forward or back and it seems super random and its really frustrating. For reference in order to change the time on the clock I...

  6. Odometer and tripmeter working random (93, 2004)

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, I am a new Saab owner, and like the car a lot. However: the odometer, the ESP indicator and tripmeter seem to go on and off. Mostly off. This is the only issue / problem I seem to have with the car. Mostly this led / light panel is just a homogeneous dim light (green-yellow-green), but...
  7. Saab 9-5 ABS Problems

    9-5 Workshop
    I was changing my wheel bearing/hub assembly and while I was doing this a cog sprung out after I removed the hub. I'm pretty sure that was the cog the wheel speed sensor uses to measure the speed of the wheel. I also noticed it was split in one place. Not sure if that is supposed to be like...

Here's what happened: car has new tires, now has Stage 2 BCB, and I had it in for an alignment today at the indy. Left the indy, and from a stop in Sport...
  9. ABS only works when ABS light comes ON??

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've been getting the triple threat (ABS, Traction Control, and ESP failure) for a while now and I've had my mechanic look at the wiring (commonly gets eaten at from how its held up inside the car apparently) but he says it checks out. Must need a new sensor i guess, but I'm not really worried...
