Hey I bought a SAAB 1.9tid sport 06 a few weeks ago but I stupidly forgot to do the number 1 rule before buying a car.... check the EML comes on and goes off.... It turns out the guy I got it from stuck some bits of black tape under the EML light blocking the light to come through.... *bangs head on wall*


I have a code that just won't go away..... the code number is P1180 (04) according to my opcom scan tool this is the "Fuel Filter Heater Circuit Open" but from what I have read online this can also be "Fuel Delivery System Malfunction – Low". The car seems to have a hard time starting I would say 30% of the time sometimes I need to crank it for about 30secs before she takes.

Just looking for any advice, cheers :)
