Question about 1988 Saab 900

2 Answers

Saab 900 Desperate! When applying my brakes the lights shut off and the turn signals turn on continuously. However, the light in the rear window does work. I have spent many days in the rain tracking wires and have found nothing irregular about the segments that I could get to with out any tools.

I had an 88 900 Turbo Convertible with the same problem. I changed out the turn signal and hazard "clickers" and it fixed my problem. Not sure if it would help you, but it's cheap to try.

Third eye works no rear signal or brake lights


The high mount brake light gets its own signal from the brake light switch (on the brake pedal). Or at least the wire leaving the brake light switch will splice, one wire to the high mount brake light, and the other for the rear brake lights is routed through the turn signal switch, and coordinated there with the turn signal wires to the rear brake lights. The brake wires and turn signal wires share the same wire, and same filament in the bulbs. It is kind of complicated, but brakes applied with no turn signal, brake light wire goes from brake light switch through the turn switch and out to the bulbs. If brakes applied with turning signal, non blinking brake light wire goes from turn switch to rear light, while the turning signal wire will go through the flasher relay, and then to the rear light to cause blinking.

I hope that makes sense. It appears the problem may be in the turn signal switch for both the turn signals and the rear brake lights.

Check your fuses, even fuses not associated with lighting. If all ok it is probably the muti-funtion switch on the steering column, It is the switch that your turn signal lever connects to.

Left rear turn signal and brake light dont work


You have a broken wire to the turn/brake light portion of the light as they use the same wire. Or where the plug goes into the light assy could be bad. Torsion mount lights are horrible and you should think about replacing with a universal light that you can wire direct.

If there is no brake lite switch on the arm of the brake pedal then look to see if there are two wires hanging down with a plug on them, as perhaps the previous owner removed the brake lite switch with the intentions of replacing it and just never got around to it.
