  1. 9-5 Workshop
    I hope I'm not breaking a rule here, this is my first post on a car forum, and I need some help. My car is, as the title says, 2003 9-5, Turbo wagon, trying to replace the CPS and NSS to hopefully keep it from dying on my parents every time they drive anywhere in town. Found the CPS but can't...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi everyone, A few months ago I bought a 1998 turbo engine automatic 9-5 with 150,000km on it. Been loving it since then. A couple days ago I was parked on my lunch break and the car wouldn't start back up again. I suspected it was the neutral safety switch because I had been having a few...

    Does anyone know where I can source the bolt or an equivalent that secures the neutral safety switch in place?
  4. 9000 Workshop
    Recently the starter on my 9000 quit. It had been going for a while. And finally quit. I tried to start it and it cranked but didn't start. I tried again and then as it was cranking it just stopped. NOTHING. I tried to start it again and there wasn't even a click. So I hired someone to install...

    Hello Everyone: I hope there is someone out there that can help me with a frustrating issue I am running into with my mother's 2002 9-3 2.0T conv. Symptoms: When car warms up to normal operating temperature the engine and gearbox warning lights will illuminate and the car will eventually go...
  7. 9-5 Workshop
    My 2000 95 wagon's transmission has a mind of its own. While driving with the selector in D, the dash transmission indicator light moves to "N" and at the next stop, the trans shifts itself into neutral. When I try to accelerate, the car doesn't respond for a couple of seconds, but then will...
  8. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    2003 9.3 Convertible. Usual complaint. Won't start, lights etc come on. Cycle the selector and hope it starts. Replaced the NSS (used part). Having same problems again. Before I go and buy a NEW NSS, is there anything else that could be causing this? Is there some adjustment on the...
  9. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Running fine with no issues and one day my 2003 Saab 9-3 Linear 2.0t will not start. Ignition gives one click when the key is turned (it is coming from the starter solenoid). Battery is good. Jumping from another vehicle will not turn the engine over, just get one click. Voltage to starter from...
  10. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have done my homework to put this in but just realized that all my homework is based on 9-3 hatchbacks. I pulled apart my car to do the neutral safety switch and once I get to the frame of the battery it is welded to the fender of the vehicle! I have no idea how to get around this. I can...

    My darling 2002 Saab 9-3 SE just got a used (new to me) neutral safety switch installed 2 weeks ago, plus an alternator (with new battery) replacement, and a transmission flush about 2 months ago. I turned my heater on yesterday full blast as it was cold in California, then today I started my...

    Looking for a new or good used neutral safety switch for a 97 Saab 900s. Do these go bad frequently, and should I buy used with confidence, or is it better to just buy a new one? Saab Part No. 5256052 Thanks, TL
  15. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I'm a little naive in the Saab area, as this is my first time buying this brand. Previously I had owned a 95 850 Volvo with a great deal of issues * warped head = oil leaking + burned valves* and I'm trying to avoid the whole high pay fixing scenario all over again. My girlfriend and I had just...

    The Neutral Safety Switch or Gear Position Sensor costs about $277 at the time of this article and before dropping the bucks I decided to see if the switch could be repaired. I got the idea from a brief description written up on another site and decided to try the technique BEFORE dropping...
  18. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi, I have a 2000 Saab 9-3 which was in storage all summer. I recently resumed driving it but had to take it to a local Saab dealer last week to get looked at for an issue I was having. Basically, when driving the vehicle the car will shutter/ hesitate randomly with the tachometer dropping...
