Recently got this error message intermittent.

Diagnosed with Tech II, it shows B1000 fault code

The suggested solution is to replaced!!

Anyone face this issue before?

Advice needed, thanks.

The airbag control module may be the culprit. It is on the floor below the armwrest. I also had a light go off due to a faulty airbag pin connection. I squeezed the connector to regain full ohms. A dealer helped me pinpoint the failure with a Tech 2. It's worth the expense to know were to look.

Alright, perhaps I will need to remove the armrest and unplug, clean the pin before connect it back.

usually more likely a connector

first port of call is drivers side seat:D
Okay, I will also look into this connector and do the same process.


Thanks guys for the tips!

Airbag Warning Light

UPDATE: found this other thread: http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=165423&highlight=airbag and the suggested fix worked. I put some pics there to help if you run into the same thing.

Bottom Line Up Front: Light is on and telling me to go to the dealer. How do I do the simple checks before I take it to the clueless GM dealer? I think I may have messed with the connections around the seats today. Possibly the cause?

Background: So, I was messing around today trying to get all of the garbage, spare change, and such from around the seats. I thought I had done a good job of cleaning the car out after I bought it (had it three weeks now). Search started because one of my kids dropped a piece of candy down by the seat (spree if you're familiar with them). I was afraid it would degrade to a sticky, interior spoiling, metal corroding mess if I didn't get it right away. In the process, I found a lighter (not a good sign and probably why the interior has a bit of a smell), a potato chip (from before I owned the car), a receipt from a drugstore (including some Miralax and other things), some trash, a few leaves, a note, $1.35 (4 quarters, three dimes, and a nickel), and a key chain made out of a green stone and shaped like a shamrock (probably a lucky charm that I should have left in the car and will return it to the car first thing tomorrow). Could I have messed up a connection with all of the fiddling around and getting things out of the interior? How do I check? I noticed that some of the connections under both seats were pretty loose. I foolishly rattled them around to see if they were soundly connected (I'm sure now that this was a mistake). Thought all was well until I turned the car on and immediately got the airbag warning. Please help.

Recently I went to my saab specialist and told me it is due to internal fault.
By removing that is not going to help.

what he did was removing the airbag module using tech 2 (by doing that, maybe trying to clear cache memory or what) and add the module again.

The error is still persist.

From my experience, airbags control modules are plug n play. My circumstance: replaced 2 different modules - both were faulty probably due to prior airbag deployment. The modules are no good after bag deploys. The final module worked as evidenced by the light going out. No Tech 2 involved in installation - just investigation. The Tech 2 should report the actual sensor if one is at fault. If it is showing a module then just replace the unit. I also has a faulty sensor with low ohms. Pinched the connector together a little bit and the light went out.

Thanks for enlighten.
I have repeated diagnose the error code using tech 2 and still the same code
B1000.

The main control module unit need to be replace due to internal fault
