  3. Got the dreaded "Gearbox Malfunction" warning on the '04

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    It has since cleared after about 6 cycles. I checked with my OBD2 reader and the only code is P0826 which seems to indicate needing to re-add the SLM and possibly a software update. The transmission never has shifted "funny" even when displaying the error message. The car has 123K miles Just...

    While driving over the weekend (2003 arc) I got the following three messages "abs brake", "traction control" and "Stability control", followed shortly by "gearbox malfunction" (with no apparent loss of any of the functions), then the radio and SID went out (as well as turn singal sounds).

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    We recently purchased a showroom quality 03' with only 45k. Been told numerous times by Saab geeks and dealers that it is the nicest 03' they have ever seen. It was a 1 owner car, owned by an older woman who lived in a luxury house with like a 5 bay garage. All work had been done on time by a...

    C900 Workshop
    Hi there, I seem to be experiencing a weird issue with engaging any gears in my 900 turbo.
