    As I posted on here before, I'm dealing w/a SAAB 9-3 Aero V6 wagon that infrequently goes into limp home mode with SID messages saying: Traction control failure, Stability control failure, and Gearbox limited functionality (get to SAAB dealership). I've taken it to a SAAB exclusive mechanic...
  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've owned my 2006 SAAB 9-3 Combi Aero for a year this summer. About 1.5 months ago my battery died (it was 14 years old according to the date stickers that were on the battery :o). So I quickly replaced the battery & drove off to work. I didn't do anything special when replacing the battery...

    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...

    I've been getting the triple threat (ABS, Traction Control, and ESP failure) for a while now and I've had my mechanic look at the wiring (commonly gets eaten at from how its held up inside the car apparently) but he says it checks out. Must need a new sensor i guess, but I'm not really worried...

    Sometimes the engine just cranks and cranks before starting 10 minutes later. Sometimes it won't start at all when the weather is really hot, or if car is parked on a hill. warnings that pop up on the SID are gearbox malfunction, and sometimes it says traction control failure. this only...

  9. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi everyone, I'm new to the site and am hoping someone has some experience with this issue and can point me in the right direction. I have searched the old posts and haven't found anything on this. I have a 2002 9-5 Linear that I bought used. It was a single owner car and appears to be in...

    OK, I need some help diagnoising a problem. Overview: 1999, 9-5 Wagon, V6, 293,000 miles. I was accelerating to about 45 mph, when I heard what sounded like air escaping a tire for about 3 seconds. I assumed I had hit something and was losing a tire. Within about 10 more seconds I could feel the...
