  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi! Recently I have noticed that in lower gears (2 and 3) the car sometimes pulls strongly to the right while driving. Anyone else experience something similar? I have had the wheels balanced and tested - all fine. The car has been to the garage/mechanics twice and they can't identify the...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi everyone! Yesterday I bought my first Saab, a Saab 9-5 2.0t from 2006 (facelift). When I bought it yesterday everything worked as it should. But today I took the car on a long journey, around 300km (185mi). When I got home from the journey, I waited for around 1 hour before I was gonna drive...

    So my saab missfires when idling while warm. And missfires when hitting full boost in any gear under 3000rpm. But when you floor it it's fine. And has full power. There isn't any engine lights. No codes being thrown. And also recently my call will loose all power and completely shut off and I...
  4. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Recently the engine has started randomly turning off while driving. Electrical keeps running but I have to coast off the road. After a second or so the car will report "traction control failure" and "stability control failure". After turning off there is a fan running, I am guessing the...

    Hi, I've recently purchased a 2008 Saab 9-3. I've noticed that the first time I start it everyday, it's very slow to actually start. It cranks several times and almost seems like it's going to fail. This hasn't actually happened in the short time i've owned it. What is odd though is that after...

  8. C900 Workshop
    I drive a Saab 900T from 1991. When driving I frequently experience problems getting into and out of 1st and 2nd gear. If I then lift my foot off the clutch pedal once, and press it down again it works fine. The longer I drive the car the more frequent the problem gets. I would appreciate any...
  9. 9-5 Workshop
    Good morning all. Reaching out to see if there are any updates on how to repair/replace the buttons that chip and peel for our radios. Last update on here was 2015 from what I found in a search and there wasn’t a resolution. I can’t figure out what buttons they used from GM to put together the...

    Hi all, I have a problem with my manual tranny. I was driving pretty normally down the street and when I pulled up to a stop sign and tried to put it into first... nothing... I could not move the shifter at all side to side. It would go into third and fourth(didn't feel like normal though). I'm...

    I have a 2005 SAAB 9-3 Convertible ... and have been having turbo problems. Seem to lose power when you accelerate, and starts very slowly. Once it moves, it is OK. Found that a part was cracked, and some compression was being released. Can you help me identify what this is ... so I can try to...
  13. C900 Workshop
    So the wires leading to the throttle position sensor have corroded to the point that I can't even solder the wires reliably. The three prong plug connecting to the throttle position sensor works fine but the wires need to be replaced or fixed some how. The attached picture shows where the...

    Sorry if this is not the correct place for this post but here goes... Yesterday i folded my rear view mirror via electric button. When i unfolded them my drivers side mirror unfolds way too far out, like 180 degrees. That is not even the main problem i don't want to use the function anyway. So i...
  15. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I am having a problem with my '04 vert which started recently (possibly with correlation to a recent heavy rain storm). When driving the car the SID message "open/close soft top completely before driving" appears constantly. It will come on and go off on its own with intervals of a few seconds...

    A friend of mine has just bought a 2000 9-5SE Automatic 2.3L (which is the same model I own) and when he turns the car off there is a Vibrating/Humming sound coming from the bonnet on the passenger side. It is coming from this unit (see attachment) The first time he turned the car off the...

    Hola! I recently bought a 2008 9-3 2.0T. I've been trying to learn all of the quirks with the car, but it's proving to be pretty good. This morning I went to warm it up before work (it's about 5°C in the morning lately). I came back out to the car around 10 minutes later and noticed that I...
  18. 9000 Workshop
    Hey guys! I know, there are plenty of other threads out there, with a lot of things to try. However, I have tried the most things I've read on forums and tips I get from the Saab community (Absolutely love it, by the way :cheesy: ), without solving my problem. Long text, but please bare with...
  19. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So, I recently bought 55w 6k HIDS for my 03 Linear Saab 9-3. Prior to that ive already had 35w 6k, but i wanted to get brighter results so i upgraded. Problem is that once i turn the car on they flicker and turn off. So after doing a bit of re search i found out i might need a harness. so i...
