  1. Tech II Workshop
    I just got a techII clone and used it to disable the continuous seatbelt chime - sometimes I have a cooler or other heavy items in the passenger seat and this way I wouldn’t have to “buckle up” my lunch or other items… Never had an issue with the seatbelt sensor before. I’ve seen the threads on...

  3. 9000 Workshop
    Hi Recently discovered my 1997 9000 2.3 CSE hasn't got a level sensor fitted to the expansion bottle. Having had a bit of a root around the engine bay in this location I have not been able to locate the wiring / plug either. Before I remove the wheel arch liner to see if it was removed by the...
  4. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello all, Still pretty new here but enjoying my Saab quite a bit :). I bought it knowing that the temperature gauge was slow to rise, but the seller said he had had it verified from his mechanic that the car was getting up to temperature and he replaced the thermostat in that same visit (I have...
  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    2000 9-3 SE, about 170k miles. About to do this job for the second time. First time was what, 10 years ago? I recall doing it from the top and side, mostly blind, fingering my way through, probably rigged some odd wrench combination. Anyhow the replacement sender is leaking. Likely has been...
  6. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi, I am changing the crashbar on my Saab 9-5 2008 vector because it is bent and it has airbag sensors on it. I was wondering if anyone knew how I could remove the sensors without accidently activating the airbag. Is it just safe to disconnect the battery and wait a few minutes or do I need to...
  7. 9000 Workshop
    I was turning the jamb switch to turn off the door lamp to change the bulb, then the switch just popped and broke inside. I lost the connector and its contact, only the outside part is left, the housing inside and the contact is gone somwhere in there. I need to know how I can access it, I tried...
  8. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have an odd dilemma, my wife's 2007 9-3 Aero had some sort of plastic assembly dangling out of the forward part of the driver side wheel well. It appeared to have some sort of sensor attached to it. I pushed it back up in front of the wheel well shroud and planned to take the shroud apart and...

    Seems the Brake fluid reservoir cap with sensor is hard to find. There are caps without the sensor available. Anyone have a link or part number ?
  10. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    This is for a 2004 convertible. So I had an Airbag System Error pop up on the SID today. I connected my Mongoose Cable and got the code above - ACM B0097 05 - Driver Seat Belt Sensor. This is apparently related to the buckle sensor or its wiring. I do not move my drivers seat very often so I...
  11. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My starter decided to go kaput over the weekend after I changed the headlight bulbs out. But when I took out the starter, I noticed a wire that doesn't look in good condition. I have no clue what this wire connects to or what it does, and It doesn't seem possible to find a good wiring diagram. I...

    Can anyone identify the part number for the sensor attached to the intake manifold? I have gone through every category in WIS for the engine with no luck. It is shown in illustrations but never specifically identified. Thank you.
  13. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey folks, So I replaced my control arms last night and as I'm sure some of you know, one of the leveling sensors sits partially attached to the driver's side lower control arm. Not 10 seconds go by and I get the Headlight leveling malfunction on the SID. I didn't disconnect it, all I did...
  14. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So ive done as much research as i could stand to do and havent found a solution. I lowered my 9-3 Aero about a month ago and ever since the right headlight sounds like its getting stuck on something when I first start the car, you know when you start the car and the headlight goes up and down...
  15. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I am finally going to fix my sensor after using my tripometer as my gas gauge for a while now. I just wanted to hear some tips and tricks that people have learned after doing it. I was thinking I would go ahead and pick up some new bolts and straps for the gas tank to replace since they are...
  16. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey everybody. Last week when I was driving on the hwy, I saw the CEL go on, and watched the temperature gauge quickly fall to the bottom. I pulled over and checked the code. It was a P0116 which is something like "temperature sensor circuit failure". So, I ordered a new thermostat and a new...
  17. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi, I just wanted to canvas some thoughts on a problem I'm having with my 04 Saab 9-5 Arc Wagon. So I had the shop look for a solution to the low coolant message that began all this and they couldn't find any leaks so recommended changing the reservoir cap. Did that and couple weeks later the...
  18. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, A friend turned up today after virtually ripping the front bumper off his 2009 9-3 convertible. I managed to reattach the bumper but have a problem with the outside temperature wiring. The cable was ripped off somewhere behind the wheel well - behind where the optional fog lamps would...
  19. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    It sits on the passenger side at the bottom where one part of the seatbelt hooks on. I can't find any information on it other than that my seat which I pulled from a 2006 Aero, connects to it. My seat also happens to get that passenger error. I thought having this would solve it. What is it...
  20. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello everyone! I'm new to this forum and I'm proud to own my first Saab! :cheesy: I purchased a 2000 9-5 V6 Turbo w/137k miles last couple weeks ago and I found out three lights on my dashboard started lighting up as I reach high speeds. - ABS Light - Brake Light - Warning Light - TCS Off...
