  1. Plug n play ecu

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Being fairly new in here, I have a question about an ECU. I need to replace mine, per my Saab mechanic. It's throwing codes everywhere and exhibiting very erratic behavior.

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey, I just bought a 1995 Saab 900 SE convertible automatic, it has 78,000 miles on it. A problem I'm having is that the convertible top will go back but the hard tonneau cover needs assistance to go up. The motor just makes a thumping/ clicking noise. They're no lights that come on. Thanks

    Saab 9-2X, 9-4X & 9-7X Workshop
    I created this DIY when my wife's 2008 9-7x battery died. As it turns out, the blower motor didn't turnoff. Even with the key out and vehicle locked, the blower stayed on. Always! After doing a little research, it turns out that the culprit is a resistor behind the blower motor. I ended up...
