  1. CANBUS, bulb swaps, Bulb Test fuse

    9-5 Workshop
    I've searched and searched the forum and can't find an answer. Will pulling the fuse labeled "Bulb Test" on my 2007 9-5 Aero eliminate bulb out messages for LED bulbs? Will pulling that fuse also stop the LEDs from blinking while the car is off, which I've heard is common? Thanks in advance for...
  2. Aftermarket LED Flickering

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Aight, so from what I can find, pretty much every Saab has this flickering problem with LED replacement bulbs, even Opel and some GM models. I've started working on mods to make them compatible since... September I think. My prototype worked, but it was bulky and couldn't be shrunk down for T10...
  3. LED instead of Halogen?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey, I tried googling this, and searching the forum, and using the several facebook groups. I want my color of the light to match my LED light strip at the top. I don't care too much for super improved lumens, but just matching the output of normal H7s. I got the Silverstar ZXe now, and...
  4. 9-3 Bottom Barrel LED Headlight Bulb Journey

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Greetings! I got tired of burning through Sylvania filament bulbs in my low beams, and fancying myself a bit of an amateur EE, why not try putting in some cheap LED bulbs? I was aware of a few things going in: 1) Drop-in LED bulbs (especially cheap ones) have a reputation for quickly burning...
  5. Disabling exterior bulb health check

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I was just introduced to the "apparently common" problem with my 2006 9-3 in that the taillight module ground wires get too hot and melt the underrated connectors. Additionally, my rear turn signal lamps are too dim and I'd like to brighten them up. LEDs are the perfect solution because...
  6. Yet another LED question: reverse light

    9-5 Workshop
    06-09 9-5 if it matters... I saw this thread: http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=229812 but it doesn't mention whether there are errors/pulsing. I'm looking to replace the P21w reverse bulb, possibly with an LED bulb to help out the backup camera at night with something...
  7. LED Low Beams in '03 Possible, or Pipe Dream?

    9-5 Workshop
    Has anyone done this successfully? Really struggling to find a definitive answer since it appears the CANBus system may have changed depending on MY? There is a lot of back and forth. Has anyone found a bulb/decoder/resistor combo (H7) that works? Just looking for some H7 lowbeam LEDs that will...
  8. 2008 Saab 9-3 Aero Headlight LEDs

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have a 2008 Saab 9-3 Aero. The passenger side headlight LEDs (4 little bulbs) have gone out and it is preventing me from getting a Virginia inspection pass. I did some forum searching and found that there is a service bulletin out where the on-board computer is causing the LEDs to be shut off...
  9. Saab aftermarket LED won't stop blinking issue

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys, new to actually being a member of the forums, long-time user of their fountain of wealth, glad to be a part of the community. Long story short, I installed halo LEDs into the headlight assembly, they are inaccessible fairly permanently unless I decide to slice the RTV sealant, so...
  10. Brake lights!

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Where in the crap do you find new tail lights? None of the parts stores around me have tail lights for my 08 9-3. I ordered some LED ones from CARiD and they were not right, as I suspected might happen, even though they said they would fit my car. So where? Or did I just get the wrong ones from...

  12. NG900 LED Taillight Proejct

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I'm trying to replace stock taillight bulbs to LEDs on my 1997 NG900 Convertible to provide some slick look. There is a picture I attached to show the idea and concept of what I'm trying to establish. I've only done the passenger side taillight so far(ran out of led bulbs). Below is the list...
  13. (?!?!?!) No start with solid red LED and parking lights... Sigh.

    9000 Workshop
    Alright guys, I've lurked on here since before I bought the saab and I've clicked every google link 10 pages deep on this, so I figured it was time to throw my own query in to the mix. Here's the top to bottom: Car has a failing brake light switch, which does't-always-but-sometimes keeps the...
  14. cluster bulb mess

    9-5 Workshop
    I got t4 / t5 wedge leds for my saab 9-5 2000 wagon. The bulbs by themselves would NOT fit inside the sockets or even want to go directly into the board. I am sure there is something I am missing out here. I wondered if these kind with a socket would do the job ...

  16. Offroad style led light bar?

    C900 Workshop
    Hi, I am really new to the saab community, simply because it's my first car. I don't like how the headlights aren't bright enough, and a trending thing to do in the prerunner and offroad jeep and truck scenes are aluminum led flood/spot light combo bars. I really like the bars and I plan on...
  17. LEDGlow Footwell Wiring

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So I just got the interior kit from LEDGlow, and I have got power to 'em from the driver side fuse. My question is, what is the easiest/most direct way to run a cord from the driver side footwell to the passenger one? I'm trying to make the install as clean as possible. Thanks!
  18. Turbo X LED DRL Fogs

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    After recently getting some white led strips, I noticed they fit perfectly into a groove already in the fog light assembly, but hadn't gotten around to installing them, (it's currently -10 and I don't have a heated garage). After sliding into a snowbank and messing up my whole passenger...
  19. Instrument Cluster Color Change

    9-5 Workshop
    Question: How do I go about changing my instrument cluster from green to red? The green and orange combo are just not doing it for me I want to change it to red. Also some of the lights have gone out. I've been searching aimlessly and gotten mixed results. so far i have found that some of the...
  20. LED lights flashing 9-3SC

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    1 year I joined this site, first time posting :cheesy: so this summer I've changed all the lights on MY07 to leds cause they look awsome :D. I've read that I need resistors so I got them all installed myself and they look great, no error messages on the SID so no hyperflashing. but there is a...
