Question about 1999 Saab 9-5
I drive a SAAB 93 and the headlights are not working i have replaced the bulbs and check both the interior and exterior fuses and they are fine. Why won't they work?
Strange headlamp problems on Saabs can often be attributed to a failing Headlamp relay. Here are a few common situations:
Issue1- Headlamp switch will work backwards: Turn on the switch andtheheadlights go off and turn off the switch and the headlights willgoon.
Issue 2 - High beams will disappear. You will havenohighbeams. Be sure to check the headlight bulbs PRIOR to orderingtherelay. Remember however that it is possible for both high beams burnout at the same time
Issue3 - High beams will not work only the low beams will.
Issue 4 - A single bulb setting (low or high) on either side will not work and bulb replacement will fix it.
Youcan sometimesfix these issues by removing the relay, taking off thecover andresoldering the connections on the relay bottom. To performthis repair, go to my illustrated tutorial at customsaab.com.
In some cases youwill have to replace the relay to effect a long term cure. The aftermarket replacement can be had at Eeuroparts.com for about $60.00:
