  1. 9000 Workshop
    After over a year of being partly disassembled I'm getting my 9k carlsson ready to relocate away from my ex's place to where I'm renting (about 5 km away). I want the car drivable so I've put the motor all back together with the AC/ACC gear all still removed (except the heater core). Went to...

    2008 9-3 Here's my story: battery was dead yesterday afternoon, so I jumped it but wouldn't hold a charge. I noticed the radio will turn off when I pull the key, but if after a few minutes I hit the On bottom for the radio it turns on. No key inserted. I hear the steering lock click when I...

    My dashboard occasionally lights up and all gauges drop. My mechanic did diagnostics and did not find any codes, but guessed that this is ignition switch issue. I agree with him, since my running daylight do not turn off if I turn off ignition key to quickly. So I am planning to replace...

    Hello Saab people, i'm new to Saab central and in need of some help. My 91 900s automatic was stolen the day I registered it just a few days ago, and found intact by the police. it doesn't lock and the automatic shifter was broken off in which i'm assuming was to bypass the electric shift lock...

    1999 Saab 9-3 SE 5 Speed 2.0T. Been having an issue starting. Everything turns on, but the starter doesn't engage. I've been able to previously stick the shifter between 4th and R, then apply pressure and the car's starter would begin to kick over and start. I think whatever the issue is has...

    All, Thought I had fixed the electrical/charging issue... but this morning my gf reported that her car would not start. When she turned the key "nothing happened" I'm already at work, but I had her check some things: -battery voltage (taken at battery with multimeter) = 12.5V (battery is...

    Hi everyone, I've done a whole lot of searching as a lurker but can't seem to find the answer to my problem. This is for a 2005 9-3. One morning, wife is driving her car to work. She gets the low battery for key fob message. I thought it was weird since I had just changed those out on...

  12. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I was driving my '97 900S this weekend and noticed for the first time that the key had not sprung back to the "on" position from "start." I arrived home and parked, and now the car won't crank. I'm not much of a DIYer, but I'd welcome suggestions on where to start; am I looking at replacing the...
  13. 9-5 Workshop
    A few months ago I noticed some odd electrical things happening with my 9-5. The AC on the drivers side stopped blowing hot/cold air, the central locking buttons stopped working, the radio control buttons on the steering wheel stopped working, and the radio would stay on after I removed the key...
  14. C900 Workshop
    I have a '93 900t manual, I posted a month or so back asking for help diagnosing and replacing a dead starter. The gist of it was that sticky stuff spilled around the ignition, which led to the starter staying on while driving the car, burning out the starter. I cleaned the ignition and got it...

    I have continually run into the same issue and it is one that leaves me stranded. Perhaps this forum will assist me with my issue. I run into a local grocery store or turn off my Saab to pump my gas. When it's go time, I place my key in the ignition and turn. Nothing happens. I get the...

    So our 2007 9-3 would start the other day. We had it towed to the Saab dealer and they say its the ignition switch. They tell us its on backorder for 2 1/2 months. This is crazy!!! We cannot go without a car for that long. My company get their vehicles fixed in Lakeland (we are in Orlando)...
  19. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Alright, here's how it is... when I've started my car, occasionally the day lights, the blinkers, the power windows, the air, and the window wipers wont work. Strange right?... The car starts, but none of the electricals seem to work, except the radio and that's about it... The only way...
