I am replacing several light bulbs and brakelight switch for my 97 900 - brake lights, turn signals...
Nothing wrong but I think it's safe to replace them before they fail while the car is on the road.

I find this spec is useful to find all the replacement bulbs spec on the one page.

Just watch out for the 90/100 W 9004 headlight bulb that some have tried. Too much "W" which heats and ruins the wire insulation and connectors...

These numbers agree with the owners manual (11 years old) but updated..
Probably good to run off a copy...

Just remember that Saab vehicles are sold globally and North American catalogues aren’t the same across the pond, nor are the bulb numbers. This is a current bulb listing from the European GE website. These bulbs are available in North America for purchase also, but cost twice as much as their equivalent North American counterpart. Considering that our cars originated from the EU, I’d recommend using the bulb table below.

This table sounds more accurate. Thanks!

no pain no $train...

i bought some new brake lights to replace the passenger side bulb and discovered it was not in fact the bulb which was broken... i can't afford to run the codes through a computer, and there are no warning lights or messages associated with the problem so maybe the comp. would have nothing to find anyway? what could be causing this problem??

Use your test light to check the current flow to that spot; if no glow, then back track, but examine the contacts carefully - these can be bent a little much....

Did you use your meter on the bulb ?
7528 is now specified, but the original was a 1157 which replaced the old 1034. There are very slight differences.
