  1. ABS and TCS light with no speedo working

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Dash lights up like a Christmas tree, it's a 2001 9-3 viggen with the 2.3L. I've got ABS and TCS light on and of course the red caution light. Speedo doesn't work at all and neither does the cruise control. Thinking it's maybe the ABS module that needs to be sent in I hear it's a common...

  3. Speedometer inaccurate after 30mph

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey Everyone, Was just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same thing. On my 2001 9-3 SE, it appears that speeds between 0-30mph seems to be accurate according to a GPS. Any speed above 30-35mph, the speedometer appears to be reading higher speeds by a couple of mph according to the...
  4. Broken Odometer

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Hello, Just picked up my new 76 Combi Coupé (this is Europe :cheesy:) and among the "few" things I have to take care of is the following issue: Speedometer works fine (tested by "you're driving <flashing LED screen> kph" roadside police device) but odometer (both of them, total and partial)...
  5. Saab 9-5 Swap Cluster / Dash with one that has a turbo indicator

    9-5 Workshop
    I have a SAAB 9-5 5 speed 2000 wagon and I observed that they've got two types of clusters for the same year and model. One looks pretty basic ( attached pic # 1 ) and LACKS the TURBO needle (though its a 2.5 Turbo engine in both cases ) - that would be mine and in the another type that looks...
  6. Replacing/Rebuilding Speedo

    C900 Workshop
    My poor girl has been in and out of the shop far too frequently lately, seems she's getting a bit old. She's a 900 turbo, with 175k, and should have plenty of life left in her yet. After getting her back from a few back to back visits to the doc, the speedometer is no longer working. The cable...
  7. Tire size - speedometer error

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So I just bought a set of 18" x 7.5" Saab new style Inca wheels. I am currently running on 17" x 7" Double Evo's with 225/45-R17 tires. I know there was a recent thread on 18" tires but I have some questions: 1. On an 04 vert can I even select an 18 inch wheel for the speedometer calibration in...

  9. Speedometer problem

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I'm totally new as a SAAB owner ... just bought a very cheap SAAB 900S 1995-model, of course it has quite some problems. One of the worst is that there are problems with the speedometer. It was working - and while driving it just blacked out - speedometer and tachometer dropping to 0...
  10. Sluggish speedometer?

    C900 Workshop
    I've got an odd one here that I can't seem to figure out. I'm driving a 1990 900S and I've noticed that my speedometer tends to stick at zero until I've gotten up to about 15 mph. When I get there, it pops off the stop and works normally and is at least accurate at 60 mph (I've timed it...

  12. ABS light & Speedometer issue

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a '99 Saab 9-3. After I drive the car for about 10 minutes and it gets warmed up, the speedometer stops working and at the same time the ABS and brake light comes on. I took it to a dealer and they gave me a run around and asked for $600 just to find out the problem. A local auto...
  13. slow speedo

    C900 Workshop
    A little history first - when I bought my 'vert, the speedo needle was stuck behind that little pin that should normally keep it at zero when stopped. It looked like the tip of the needle had broken off (I found it at the bottom of the instrument cluster) but just enough of the needle was there...
  14. Dash Problems

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    For $700, I recently bought a '95 900SE with a V6 Automatic. It has some issues but for a few hundred, I thought I could make it a pretty decent car. The body and interior are nice. Most of my issues seem to be dash related. Every warning light is on (ABS, SRS, CEL and that large red...
