    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...

  4. Another radiator fan resistor question

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Our 2002 9-3 SE was in a fender bender recently, and I am trying to address some problems it seemed to pick up during its holiday at the body shop. One problem is that the low-speed fan is gone. Based on the usual relay-jumpering test I've ordered a new resistor, but I have a couple of...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys, I noticed recently that the radiator fans are not turning on my 08 2.0T combi. I'm not over heating, but with the weather getting warmer it is slightly concerning. Lol. No codes are being thrown. I was looking at the manual and I don't see a fuse for the radiator fan. Is it inline with...

  8. DIY: 9-7x Blower Motor Resistor Replacement

    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...
  9. 2005 Saab 9-3 Manual Fan Control Resistor

    9-5 Workshop
    Thanks in advance for the help. My 2005 Saab 9-3 Linear has been having an issue with the fan speed. I have the manual (knob) to control the fan speed, but it doesn't respond, or if it does, it is late and then the air stays on, even after the car has been shut off. This problem leads to a dead...

    Saab 9-2X, 9-4X & 9-7X Workshop

  11. Confusion about ACC on first Saab

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I purchased a 1999 9-3SE which runs quite well, but the blower motor in the acc does not work. I pulled the whole system apart and tested the blower and it works fine, and the only logical reasoning I can come up with is that there are missing wires leading into the resistor. The connection I'm...
  12. 2003 9-3 Linear - ACC Blower Motor Resistor

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My car has the VERY common issue of the A/C running at full speed when the car is turned off and the key removed. I currently have to pull the orange fuse to keep my battery from draining. Most of the threads I am reading (i have very limited connectivity at the moment) only pertain to cars...

    Hope everyone is doing awesome today! I have a problem, that is my blower motor just went on my 1995 900s. I've gone over some of the threads here, and need to know if this would be a good idea.

    Hey guys, maybe someone can help me on this. Soon after I bought my car when it would rain, water would leak inside my car beneath my glove box onto the front passenger floor mat.
