I have a '02 9-3 SE and couldn't pass inspection because left bright light is not working even with new bulb? Can I get some opinions what could be wrong?

the orange light monitor relay in the engine fuse box is your most likely culprit. You can resolder flow the joints or buy a new one.

You are dead on it, thats exactly what it was! And in my case basically wasted $97 because needed to get inspection quick. But I could have virtually got it for free if I had asked earlier by having buddy working in junk yard who surely would had a few that were working.

By the way would the relay in the NG900 (1994 to 1998) would have worked in the OG9-3 (1999-2002) & '03 Convertible???
And would the relay from Saab 9-3 SportSedan, Cabrio ('04+), Combi & 9-3X, 2003-2012 work in the OG9-3 (1999-2002) & '03 Convertible???

It is the same part and same part no., so yes. It fits in the 9000, (1992-1998), the NG 900 (1994 - 1998), the OG 9-3 (1999-2002 + 2003 convertible), and the OG 9-5 (1999 - 2009).
This solid state lamp control unit is not used in the NG 9-3 cars, which use actual relays to control the headlights.

Thanks Saaboheme, sure wished I had asked earlier, could save that money and used it elsewhere.
Wow, you say even works on 9000, (1992-1998) and OG 9-5 (1999 - 2009) even more models!

An easy way to check vehicle compatibility is to identify the part no. and find it on eeuroparts. The foregoing link will take you to the lamp control unit on eeuroparts. Once there, scroll down the page to "Vehicle Fitment & Notes" and click on that. That will give you this:
Click a year range, make, and model below for additional information.
+ SAAB 9-3 1999-2003
+ SAAB 9-5 1999-2009
+ SAAB 900 1994-1998
+ SAAB 9000 1992-1998
You can then expand each model year range to get this:

if you ended up picking up a used one from the junk yard, reflow the soldier joints on your old one and you'll never have to buy a new one. There are threads here that explain it , but basically you pull the cover off and if you look with a magnifier you will see cracked joints near the base pins. A little heat and good as new.
