1997 Saab 900 SE Stalls With Full Tank

My 1997 Saab 900 SE will sometimes stall when I'm at a stoplight. But whats weird is that it will only do this after I fill it up with gas. I have also noticed sometimes it will make a 'klunking" noise when I'm stopped at a light and the gas guage is about 1/4 lower then it shoud be (i.e. after I fill it up it says 3/4 full). I asked a mechanic friend and they said it was probably something wrong with wiring and it could turn into a big problem if I let it go on. Anyone else have this problem?

My 1999 saab 9-5 se (2.3 turbo) cuts off when I turn the ac or heat on. It stalls at traffic lights,stop signs etc, but does fine on the open road.


Have the altenator checked out. when you turn these on it puts an extra load on the altenator. Could be loosing voltage or amperage, And the ECM could be shutting you down because of this drop.

1996 SAAB 900 SE Brakelight Failure SID info
- stalls in reverse etc.

The problem lies with the grounding point in the left rear body cavity on the floor, see the diagram.
Rust eventually destorys the ground and the car will not run in reverse nor do the backup lignts or the rear hatch defroster work amongst other things
Re-attach the grounding wire to an existing welded stud on the side body panel and the problem is solved.

Stalling engine when lights are turned on/erratic idling


It sounds like you have a short somewhere in your electrical system going to your lights. I would check for and wires being accidentally cut or even perhaps melted through. If you have no luck there, you may end up having to take the vehicle to a shop that specializes in electrical troubleshooting. I'd lay odds on a short in the wiring going to the headlights, though. Hope this helps and have a great day!

Check Engine Light!


Sounds like you will need to have the codes read at SAAB dealer to confirm no fautly sensors have caused this to happen.
There may still be a bad component that is triggering lamp.
