  1. 2004 Saab 9-3 2.0t Delayed or non functioning horn.

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have an issue with my car horn. It either doesn't work some times when I press or it works with a delay. It's like the signal goes through the cars ECU, has a 20-30 ms delay after pressing and sometimes it doesn't register at all. Shouldn't the horn be connected directly?!? The contacts in...

    My electric mirrors stopped responding to the memory settings :(. If i hold 1,2,3 the seats change to the saved position but the mirrors don't. I can adjust them manually no problem but they don't go back to the saved position. I also have the button that makes the right mirror look down for...
  4. How do I diagnose an AC system?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I haven't used the AC that much in the past few years. Two summers ago, a shop said that the AC system was dry and needed a recharge. Costs hundred bucks or so, and when it came back from the shop, it worked. It wasn't a particularly hot summer, and my SAAB is a convertible, so I didn't use...
  5. Only Third Brake Light Working??

    C900 Workshop
    So I noticed today that both my brake lights were out and only the one in the window works. I checked fuses (fine) and replaced the bulbs even though they weren't burnt out. Still nothing. According to the diagram i found here...
  6. Heater on with top down?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    When I'm driving with the top up the heater comes on fine and it stays on the temperature degrees settings on the screen. When I put the top down the temperature settings changed to a 1 to 10 scale and the heater never seems to work with the top it just blows outside air. I only have ever had...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My wife was driving her 1999 Saab 9-3 Convertible (which has been plagued with problems) home in a storm. It seems that the windshield wipers, turn signals, and power windows all are not functioning. The engine is also making a whining sound as a result of this so it seems something else has a...
