  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    TLDR; 2005 9-3 Convertible 2.0t is intermittently going into limp mode and even stalling. I've tried replacing the throttle body and cleaning MAF and the H42-2 connector, but the problem persists. I will be taking it to an auto shop soon, unless anyone has other ideas. I plan to post back once...
  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi all. I was hoping someone could help me understand what I'm seeing here when I run the Throttle Position sensor test from the Tech 2. Here is a video of the full test running on my car: My questions are: Is that buzzing noise it is making normal? And I also noticed that the movement...
  3. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello All! I'm seeking guidance on diagnosing my car's intermittent starting issues. On the first start attempt, the car will start, stumble, and quickly stall; only to be restarted and run completely fine. It only seems happen when the car is cold and has been sitting overnight, so I don't...

    Hi, I have a 2005 9-3 sedan with ~80k miles. Occasionally, the check engine light will turn on and the car will enter limp mode without warning. The last time this happened, I was on a highway and the car suddenly stalled, with no way to move again until I reset the check engine light (which...

  9. 9-5 Workshop
    We've taken our 2001 saab 9-5 SE 3.0T (lol) V6 on a seattle-to-LA road trip every year for a few years (2) perfectly fine. The third year, the car made it about 6-8 hours into oregon, started misfiring, and died shortly after. To make the story short, we rented a car to get to LA and I picked up...

    I have a P1230 code on my 2002 9-5 Aero -- dead throttle body. I opened up the electric motor side of the throttle body and all wiring insulation has crumbled to dust. Tried calling BBA Remain. (I've seen that recommended on some of the forums.) BBA said they currently have no rebuilds for...
  11. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I was in the middle of making my way back home when my gas pedal became extremely stiff out of nowhere and very slow acceleration at the top end of the rpm range. It will still go up to the top of the rpm range but it takes alot of force on the gas pedal. T7 9-3. What do you guys think? Throttle...
  12. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi All, I have a 2001 9-3 which had a throttle body problem, intermittent jerking on acceleration, loss of power, stalling at idle etc. I replaced it with an old one from a 9-5 (that I knew wasn't perfect but it ran fine for a while) I opened up the old one and the wires all had the insulation...
  13. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi all, I have replaced the throttle body on my 9-3 with an old one I had hanging around. It works but not perfect. I started to pull the old one apart to see if I could fix it and found that the wires inside have nearly all got their insulation gone. Almost as though it had burned off but not...
  14. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello all, I just replaced the turbo in my 2002 9-3 2.0 which was no small feat for someone with a limited experience level btw. Anyway, I ran the car for about 15 mins and watched the smoke from the exhaust continue to pour out and check for any leaks. I noticed oil dripping from parts of the...
  15. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So I've been trying to get my CEL to turn off (P0101 - MAF sensor performance) for a good while. I changed out the MAF sensor, throttle body, and vacuum lines but it just won't turn off. The other day while I was entering the freeway, it suddenly started bucking at about 2100 RPM. I could...

    Hi new member here:) A 9000 Aero (Manual) I have been looking at starts and idles fine but won't rev. The car has been sat a couple years now and was apparently running fine not to long ago.

    2009 9-3 Sedan, 2.0T Two weeks ago while accelerating from about 40mph, my engine light came on and the engine switched into Limp-home Mode. No response to throttle, and very bad idle.

  20. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello everyone! I just replaced my throttle body. Had to reset it and no CEL right now. Something seems to be triggering the limp home mode setting on throttle body and making it need reset... Any ideas what could be making the throttle body go into that mode? Thank you and glad to be back!
