Take the car to Autozone, they will read the codes via OBD II for free.  Other parts stores may have the same policy ... call first.   My VW dealer charges $40 to pull the codes!!   I bought a low-end OBD II reader for $50, as the wife and I  both have VWs.

White smoke is usually antifreeze, the most frequent cause of this is head gasket blown or cracked head ... big bucks.  Hopefully this is not you.  Unless the car had a dramatic overheating incident, for most makes of cars, this should not happen until you have over 100K miles, probably closer to 200K.   
White smoke could also be break fluid sucked in from power brake booster.  If it's brake fluid, it will smell very bad.  
On cold days, when the car first starts, white smoke can just be normal condensation in the tailpipe ... if it happens after the car is warmed up ... it's something else.
Check your coolant overflow tank level ... if it's very low or empty ... put water in (don't bother with antifreeze yet in case you are burning it up in the engine).  
Good luck, ..ajm

Had same problem, in the boot right hand side, behind the removable panel there is :
1 - a hydraulic reservoir which must be at correct level.
2 - a black box (stc) this controls the roof system,
switch ignition off then pull the 2 connectors off for 30sec then reconnect.
This worked and hope this resolves your problem

LOL, take it down to pretty much any parts store, most can diagnose engine lights for free. Its possible the Evap isn't working right, or the EGR isn't working right. As the light says, check the engine. Just means there's a small problem, doesn't mean its broken. My sister has an 02 Pontiac, She drove for months with the check engine light on. I had her stop by an Advance Auto Parts that checked it for free, and it just showed the Evap purge solenoid wasn't working. I sprayed some carb cleaner on it worked it a bit by hand and it works fine now. Get it checked for sure if you live in a place that still does emissions checks for new tags.

unfortunately this means you need to get yourself to a trusted transmission repair facility very quick. the torque convertor on your vehicle is not operating the way it should. this is going to be an expensive repair, i tell you this so your not suprised. but do your homework and find someone with a great reputation for their work. dont take your saab to just anyone. these cars can get really screwed up without the right people workin on it. the transmission will need to come out.

SOURCE: I have a Saab 9-3 TDi 2001. The engine warning

Hi
If your engine warning light has come on this is indicating there in a serious problem and the limp mode has been switched on to safe guard the engine. It could be a number things, but I'll give you some basic things to look at which may help you.

  1. Check all fluids are are the correct levels - engine oil, radiator water level in overflow tank usual beside the radiator.
  2. Also check transmission fluid level if it is an automatic, from the dipstick.
If all these are ok then check these areas:
  1. Air Filter and housing has no blockage.
  2. Fuel filter may need replacing or water separator is filled with water, loosen valve at the bottom of fuel filter and drain the excess water. Fuel should not come out just water if there is any.
If all these are ok then there is a problem regarding sensor faults, fuel pump timing, and further in depth diagnosis will be needed. Hope this is helpful, let me know how you get on.

Engine malfunction indicator light


you will have to check and see If the bulb is burnt out as you say there are no codes in the system therefore what they are checking for is a bulb check for the light to come on when the key is turned on.

Check engine light came on today on my 2002 Saab 9-5 2.3 Turbo. I have no clue why? Also, when I started it up this morning it said on the display [REAR LIGHT FAILURE]. Any solutions?


The simple one, you have a rear light blown. As for the check the engine light "you would need to get the code checked, that any Saab dealer can get by plugging a device into your car, and from there the problem will be narrowed down" sorry I cant be more specific but that light can come on for a multitude of reasons. :-(

You will need to have your car's ECM (Computer) read by a OBD II scanner to determine what Trouble Code your ECM is giving so a mechanic can properly diagnose the problem. You can go to your local AutoZone store and they can pull the codes out of your ECM for no charge.

I just bought a 1999 Saab 9-5 v6 and the check engine light came on yesterday and today on the way home from work my dash lights went out?????


Hi, this sounds like a voltage issue to me. Did all the lights go out on the dash, including the check engine light. Your best bet is to get the fault codes read at a local garage (not the main dealer unless you have money to burn). They should be able to give you indication of what caused the light to come on and you can take it from there.

not sure, run a code scanner on it and post the trouble code that would help to diagnose. Your local auto parts store can probably scan it for you.

2002 saab 9-5 with 95,500 miles has check engine ligt on. oil was changed 3 weeks ago. I drove the car Saturday morning w/o any problems for 20 minutes. 2 hours later when I was leaving again the light...


The message light does not check all internal systems.

Have someone at a local parts store do a free code scan for you, this will tell you what code is making the light come on, and what that code indicates is wrong.
