    Hello everyone! I'm pretty new to this forum and I have a question regarding my power windows.

  3. No power in passenger door

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi all, After storing my 2006 Saab 9-3 Convertible Arc for about 3 months, my passenger door doesn't always receives power. When I start the car, the passenger door has power (lights in panel turn on), but after a second or so, the lights go out indicating the door lost power. If the door...

    New Member Introductions
    I just bought my first Saab - a 2004 9-3 ARC Convertible, or at least it says ARC on the door opening. I do not know what ARC means, and I do not know why the car started giving me the Lock System Failure message, and I do not know why my passenger door window, which went down, will not go up...
  5. 2009 9-3 Rear Left Window Failure

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I went to use my rear window for probably the 10th time ever this weekend and heard a crack followed by a clicking noise. Afterwards, my window fell down to about halfway and would not go back up. I taped it up for the time being but I'm pretty sure from similar posts on this forum that I have a...

    Hello Everyone, I'm having some issues with my passenger side window on my 1999 9-3 SE Hatchback. It recently started malfunctioning. It used to go up and down but at the moment it won't go up. Yesterday it did the same thing but after a few minutes it started working again, I don't hear the...
  7. Front passenger window stuck down

    Saab 9-2X, 9-4X & 9-7X Workshop
    Hey all, just picked up a 9-4x premium on Friday and all was good until yesterday :( We rolled the front passenger window down, but it didn't go back up. I can here the motor running and a "crunchy" sound from inside the door panel so I think the motor and switch is good. I looked at the...
  8. Driver Window Problems

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have an '04 9-3 Arc. I'm having an issue with my window on the driver side. I have searched for days for a similar discussion with no luck. Initially, I think that I got some water in the door panel. When that happened, nothing on the door panel worked (power mirrors, trunk release...

  10. Window off track in 1999 9-3

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey everyone, Sorry - first off, I'm really dumb with cars. I don't even know if I'm posting in the right forum, so I apologize if I'm not. My car is a 1999 9-3 SE and has been giving me lots of problems lately, but today I rolled one of my back windows down and the thing would not go back...
  11. Help! Passenger Door Electronics Failed

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm extremely new to the Saab world, but I love my car! I just bought it under 2 months ago and everything worked when I drove it off the lot. About a week after I bought it I noticed the passenger door didn't lock with the key fab or with the driver side door. The window also wont roll down...
  12. 9-3 convertible passenger window

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi all! I'm new to the message boards and looked everywhere for the answer to this. The passenger window will not go up all the way. It's not the pinch protection as it seems to go very slowly and then stop about 1/4 of the way up. I can pull it about 1/2 way up but then no more. It doesn't...
  13. Front Passenger Side Window Will Not Go Down

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey, a couple weeks ago I noticed that the front passenger side window in my 2004 9-3 Aero no longer goes down. The lock still works and the side mirror still moves around when I try to control it. I've done a bit of searching in these forums but so far I've been unable to fix it. I've tried the...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have absolutely loved my new used 2004 9-3 Arc convertible, for almost a year with no problems. I thought to myself , This is an awesome Saab when it comes to reliability. I have had a 1999 9-3 Saab convertible and a 2000 Saab 9-5 that were loaded with problems, both those cars I had sense...
  16. Rear window doesn't roll up!

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    1999 Saab 9-3 SE So i had some friends in my car two nights ago and (i guess) one of them put too much weight on the right rear window when it was down. Now, the window sits lower than the normal height of the other one when it is all the way down. It doesn't roll up or down but NOTE: i can...
  17. rear lamp failure/driver window

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I bought my Saab yesterday, great car but there are a few minor problems with it: 1. When I press the auto up for the driver side window it will go all the way up then come back down about 1/4 of the way. I guess it's tripping some kind of hand sensor causing it to come back down. Is there a...
  18. Crap, we made it worse, help! (soft top clutch)

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Our convertible was recently struck with a broken soft top hydraulic clutch. I didn't know the problem at first so we grudgingly took it to the stealership and they told us what they thought was wrong. They put the top up (it was stuck down) and we said no to the 500+ quote. They stuck us...
