  1. heating vent problems

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello all, I have an '05 Saab 9-3t 2.0 that is giving me problems with the heating system. First of all the fan won't turn off so I have to remove the 40 amp fuse so my battery doesn't die overnight. Secondly I have heat coming out of the defrost vent near the windshield even with the fan OFF...
  2. ACC Inop

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Recently purchased 99 9-3 and the ACC panel appears to be inop, as in no power going to the ACC box itself -no lights display, buttons don't do anything, unable to pull up error codes, no hot air, no cold air, no defrost, nothing. Fuses are fine, switched out with another ACC box and still...
  3. Left rear brake dragging

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So my left rear brake is dragging and getting quite hot. Not sure when I will get to take a look as the weather here will be kind of sub optimal over this weekend. I thought I would pose the following question as a poll to see what people think is the most likely possibility and after I get it...
  4. ACC issues again.

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Replaced a bad fan regulator (or what I thought was) back in August. All was well and good/great when it was installed, after it had stopped blowing consistently. The weather here in VT has been disgusting, then freezing, so it's an immediate issue. Bought a new Valeo off ebay. Looked...
  5. HELP - Saab 1998 95 2.3 - power not applying through to wheels - engine warms fast

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi, Just bought a 1998 SAAB 95 - have had a great week of driving - although there was a little "power slippage" but I have just bought it as a cruiser. This morning i noticed the temp gauge gets up to half quite quickly, and the power doesnt seem to be applying through to the drive train - it...
  6. cabin heat

    9-5 Workshop
    First off I'm very sceptical of all mechanics. My daughters 2003 saab 95 linaer heat will not enter cabin all piping hot. In june mechanic changed out thermostat because car was overheating, when recently attempted to put on heat no heat. I assumed he replaced wrong thermostat, and i had him...
  7. '99 9-3 - Air only out of dash vents

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I got my '99 9-3 from someone in pretty poor shape. I have been trying to get it back to its former glory and it's taking time and money. Most of the mechanical stuff is done by the Dealer, but I a perfectly capable of dismantling and reassembling interior items. One of the issues I recently...
  8. Just Another Blend Door

    9-5 Workshop
    Alright, so I have a 2001 Saab 9-5 Aero. Had ACC codes 08 and 13, blowing hot as hell on the drivers side, nice and cold on the passenger side. Had previously replaced just the lever on the drivers side, not the shaft/lever. Well the shaft had cracked and was causing issues. So I purchased the...

  11. Feels like misfire with no codes?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have a 2003 9-3 linear and lately I've been getting what feels like a misfire only after the engine heats up all the way. Like I'll take a 20 minute highway drive and when I get back on regular roads I'll put some gas on it and it will feel like a misfire when switching gears. It is an...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So here we go. The video pretty much explains everything. The video is of the final product. The pictures are NOT the final product. Its the one before the final product. I wanted to see how it looked. Only real difference between them are the hole locations. I cheaply dressed it up to see what...
  13. 2004 9-3 Heat issue

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello and thanks for reading. Here's my issue: I had a bad blower motor resistor which was probably caused by my blower motor that had seized. I have replaced the blower motor resistor, and put some WD-40 on the spline of the blower motor and it now works fine, i think. Here's where it gets...
  14. ACC works backwards or not at all

    9-5 Workshop
    I have a 2001 9-5 Aero with a weird glitch. I've replaced the blender arm, the heat bypass valve and I'm still left with no heat. In the summer, if I want a/c I have to set the temp to 85 and icy cool air comes out. When outdoor temps are mild, I can generate heat by turning the temp down to...
  15. High Temp

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi all, Long time no problems! Until now... haha I have done some searching about a high temp issue I am having and most results seem to point to having a problem thermostat. The temp in my 03 9-3 (2.0t) started to climb the other day. I didn't notice it until I got a warming on the CID that...
