This code has come up after scanning the engine code. I have tried throttle body cleaner sprayed in after the mass air flow sensor, which put the light out two days later, but it is back on. I saw one thread that mentioned an air inlet temperature sensor on a 93, but where is it on a 2000 95?? Any help would be appreciated.

Any chance you can give me a better location/ID on the dump valve? Do you think the problem is the sensor?

Open the hood, the dump valve is behind the radiator on the right hand side. Its connected to the delivery pipe that runs vertically to the throttle body.

P1110 - Charge Air Bypass Valve - performance problems.
Either a fault with the bypass valve itself, the solenoid valve or the connecting hoses.

First thing I would do is the check the hoses connected to the valve and go from there. If your hoses are still original that could solve the problem.

Thanks pab95, but I just changed that valve about 3weeks ago. The only thing I've done recently(this weekend) was to change the turbo and MAF. I did disconnect the DI and left the connector pointing upwards and sprayed a electric connector cleaner on the connections. I also cleaned the tube and replaced the O-ring.
Right now, I have those 3codes and the car is driving at about 40-50mph.
How about codes p1410 and p0004??

Changing the air intake sensor should just be a matter of unscrewing it after disconnecting the electrical? Any other words of wisdom? Thanks

I ran those codes through the SAAB WIS and neither came up as being valid.
Did a quick search online and the P1410 came up as an EGR valve position sensor malfunction. That was for a Toyota though. Not sure if it is a generic code or not. P0004 does not come up as being valid at all!

Assuming the electrical connector comes apart easy and you can get a wrench on the base of the sensor, you know all the stuff they make look easy on tv.

Pull the ECU fuse, think it's 17 but double check, for 10 minutes to clear the codes. See if they come back as valid codes.

Also, if the car is lacking in power, I'd be willing to bet your in "Limp Home Mode." Do a forum search on it, and how to reset it.

Actually, the codes are p1310 and p1103, my mistake. I don't think i'm in 'Limp Home' mode, but something is really wrong now cuz I'm spewing a trail of white smoke and hearing a clanking sound from the turbo area.


I'm just thinking about taking the car to the deal now and get it done with.

Code P1310 - DI Cassette is not powered in bank 1. Either the wiring harness is not connected properly or there is a short in the wiring.

Code P1103 - Invalid code

Hope this helps!!

Sounds almost like coolant is getting into your exhaust. Turbo may have failed. Not sure why your car would run at all with a P1310 code. Strange that you'd be getting a false code too.

Turbo failed. Seals blown and leaking oil into the exhaust. Just took a look and saw the oil leak down and into the exhaust. And it's a fresh rebuild, just like the one Wulf has, just installed on Saturday.

And thanks for checking the codes.

Changing the sensor made the code disappear in a couple of days and it has stayed off. Thanks for the help and saving me a bunch of $$$$$$$
