  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...

    Parts for Sale/Wanted - North America
    My current situation is that my ABS unit went out. Sent it to BBA for a reman and it still didn't work - TCS, ABS lights and no speedo.

  4. Seemingly unsolvable brake issue

    9000 Workshop
    Hi good ladies and gentlemen! First post here. So I have 1995 9000 Aero, which I love. A couple of months ago, I started to see problems going WOT, where the clutch would be slipping a lot unless I applied only gentle force on the throttle. Clutch hadn't been changed in 5 years or so, I thought...
  5. Saab 9-5 ABS Problems

    9-5 Workshop
    I was changing my wheel bearing/hub assembly and while I was doing this a cog sprung out after I removed the hub. I'm pretty sure that was the cog the wheel speed sensor uses to measure the speed of the wheel. I also noticed it was split in one place. Not sure if that is supposed to be like...
  6. 04 9-5 Aero TCS/ABS warning lights

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi folks, My dashboard is a Christmas tree, all of the ABS/TCS warning lights are on. I replaced the "slide-out" piece on the ABS module, but the lights stayed on. Now, I have no idea whether that could be because the replacement is not the right part (it looks the same, it smells the same...
  7. Traction control (ESP) kicked in at 50 MPH

    9-5 Workshop
    OK, so I did search for this because I am sure someone wrote about a similar situation, but I can't find it. Apologies for the duplication. Here's what happened: car has new tires, now has Stage 2 BCB, and I had it in for an alignment today at the indy. Left the indy, and from a stop in Sport...
  8. Theft Alarm Problem and TCS question

    9-5 Workshop
    Hello people A couple of questions concerning my 9-5 Aero 2.3t stage 1 noobtune 1. I am occasionally hearing my alarm going off in short bursts. There is no message on the SID though. Is there any easy way to find the problem? 2. When driving up a steep winding hill, if I change in to 2nd...

    9-5 Workshop
    so I've got the dreaded wonky abs module issues popping up now. Its intermittent and a bit unpredictable. I'll start the car with about a 50% chance i get a warning. sometimes it will go away while I'm driving and my speedo will kick back on, sometimes not. Before I go about sending it off...
  10. TSC limp home mode

    9000 Workshop
    I'm looking at a 9000 (92) that is reportedly in limp home mode - with TSC failure. I found some info here, sort of looks like running the other way from this car is the best bet. True? Or are there relatively easy ways to diagnose the exact component failure without the SAAB Tech2? Please...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Both my TCS OFF light and my ABS light are on in my 2001 Saab 9-3 convertible and my odometer has stopped working (however my speedometer IS working). I had the car garaged for 4 years and when I went to pull it out I found someone had sliced through the top of my otherwise impeccable car. I had...
  14. TCS Button Doesn't Work

    9-5 Workshop
    I have a 2000 Saab 9-5. I purchased it used at the beginning of the summer and absolutely love the car. There's only one thing I don't like though. The car was rebuilt after an accident by the previous owner and everything looks and works good as new, except the TCS button doesn't do anything...

  19. P1260 & TCS off relationship?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Yesterday my wife's 2002 9-3 SE 2.0 Auto had the "Check Engine" light illuminate in addition to the "TCS off" light as well. I pulled the code and it read P1260. I believe that code indicates a weak throttle return spring which I think is adjustable. I am wondering why the TCS off light would...
