  1. 1988 non turbo gauge fix

    C900 Workshop
    I have a 1988 900s non turbo manual trans 222k miles. I’ve had the car for half a year and I’ve been fixing it for some time now. It has a salvaged title which I think is due to flood damage so of course the electrical is now messed up. Runs solid besides a air fuel ratio learning fault but...
  2. Strange Electrical/Charging Issue

    C900 Workshop
    All, Not sure what to do here... having a very strange electrical issue. This is happening with my girlfriend's 1992 900 Turbo. It all began when she was driving to work and she reported that various system quit functioning: the turn signals the tachometer the radio she was able to keep...
  3. Tachometer gets stuck on my 03 2.0T Vector SS

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    My tach will on occasion get stuck at 2000-2500 rpm and stops reacting to acceleration and deceleration. (I typically notice this on the highway.) Once I come to a complete stop for more than 30 seconds the tach will slowly go to the normal idling rpm; once that happens the tach will act...
  4. Cruise, Tach, Turn Signals Stopped Working... Why?

    C900 Workshop
    Hi all, My gf's 1992 900 Turbo sedan normally works fine. I've worked on enough of these to be suspicious of the miles and miles of wire in that thing though, and finally it's thrown me a curveball. :( Today the cruise control, turn signals, and tachometer all stopped functioning. It's...
  5. Very high idle, tach needle not working

    9000 Workshop
    1997 9000 Aero 2.3 5spd. Just happened earlier this evening - about 3 hours after a normal work commute. I had some idle trouble a few weeks ago, removed and cleaned the IAC with carb cleaner and that seemed to fix the problem. Tonight, upon startup, the RPMs were a little shaky -...
  6. 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...
  7. Couple quick questions

    9000 Workshop
    I have a '94 9000 areo turbo and have a couple questions. My turbo is not functioning properly. As you stand facing the engine, at the back there are 2 small nipples side by side toward the left hand side. The one on the left has a white hose on it. The one on the right does not, but has vacuum...
  8. Tachometer fail :(

    9000 Workshop
    Hey guys, Picked up a Saab 9000CD last week. Going well but yesterday after work I hopped in and the tach just stopped working all together. This weekend I am going to pull the dash cluster out and look for any bad connections. But two questions, is a bad connection behind the cluster the...
