Saab 1996 900s electrical problem

Hi Jeff
I have not pull the panel out yet. Will do son though.
Drove today and every thing was working ok. Then on my way home the same thing happened. Then left the car sitting like last night. And every thing is working again.
Do you know if maybe there is some sort of circuit breaker. Or maybe the onboard computer has some sort of auto cut out if maybe a short or something and resets.

Cheers from
Len.

SOURCE: Replacing ignition switch on Saab 1996 900s 2.3 I 5 speed

You take all the center console and plastic ducts from between the seats. There are 4 10mm bolts holding the shifter mechanism to the floor. Take these off and do your best to flip the whole housing to where you can access the bottom side. The ignition switch is attached under there. As I recall there are 2 T20 screws holding it on.

I'm afraid if you don't have the code, you will have to take it to a local dealer or specialist radio store to have it re-coded.

Fortunately, it's not expensive.

Saab has no power/electricity


Assuming the battery is ok, no electricity is reaching the car circuits. First thing I would check is to make sure that your battery connections are good and tight. Next item is the battery properly grounded to chassis? If so, they you will have to get a schematic to trace the wiring and see just where the flow of electricity can be interrupted.

Hi Jeff, I'm glad to help!

Jeff, what we find all the time at the dealership mostly is the spray nozzles are stopped up. But on the other hand if you do not hear the pump motor running, then check power and ground. If you have both the replace the pump motor. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Jeff.

Check engine and check gearbox lights


As Saab is in relation to Subaru.....the first thing I would check is the spark plugs, ignition coil and spark plug wires. Have a technician check them for carbon tracking as if you are getting some hesitation and is inconsistant you may very well have a missfire. Minor problem but could be costly depending upon if it's got a single coil or one for each cylinder.

Hi I have a '92 saab 9000cd fuel injected 4 cyl car. recently I have had problems with cold start..car would start ok but run rough like it was missing on one cylinder..then after it got warm about...


Hi! I believe that the problem remains in the backelite. You know, when it breaks, all the electrical properties go bad. My advice is that you change it for a new one.
Best regards.
Hope it helps you.

Battery not holding charge


Hi,

From initial indications, your analysis is correct. Pls replace the battery. Of course the only way to validate this is with a new battery.

The electrical system of most vehicles could be divided into two, the charging system and the load. The load would be from the headlights, to the computer and all the electrical consumer of the car. If there is anything wrong with any of the load, the fuse would be blown. On the other hand, the charging system is as its name implies, restores the electrical energy of the battery once the engine is running. If something is wrong (battery not charging), then there would be a warning indicator in the dashboard.

Since you have not reported any of the fuses blown or any of your electrical devices not functioning nor any warning lights, then in all likelihood, it is just the battery.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
