Question about 2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen

1 Answer

Security SystemProblem. My 2000 Saab 9 5 has a problem with the Car Disabled from starting after a short trip. I have a New Battery and Changed the Fob Battery already. I Synced the Fob to the Car Following the Instructions in Owner's Manual. Here is what happens. I deactivate Alarm in My Driveway. Drive 20 blocks to market. Shop 15 min and when I turn key, everything but Starter. Usually I have to wait about 30 min and then like nothing happened, starts. This only happens sometimes. If I drive a distance, the car starts as many times as I have stops. No one can figure this out. One day My wife went out and got stuck for 30 minutes or more at 3 places she stopped in a row. Car unusable like this. Please Help. Thanks

    I dont know a permanent fix, but mine does this often ours is an 01 9-5...we keep a small wrench in the glove box...when it happens, disconnect the battery cable for one minute to reset the syetem... reconnect it and your car will start...let me know if you find a better fix! good luck

Clarify me(my home languege is not english),starter is not turning(work)!?and you have a good battery so the TWICE(imobiliser) is the problem!
But if the starter turns,can be crankshaft sensor,fuel pump,fuel pump relay.
Connecting the TECH2 is the best to start diagnostic

Saab 2003 key not recognized how to by pass to get it started


There's an antenna for the transponder receiver built into the key surround on the 9-5, it could have had a knock or be faulty.

On the 9-5 if the transponder stops working and you get a key not accepted message then you can override it by pushing the unlock button on the key remote with the ignition turned to on and it should let you start the car.

Help! Changed battery but still don't work for a long time


you probably have a short in the amplifier under the driver's seat. I had the same problem. Bought mine used, but the amp had water damage due to the vents for it on the left side of the driver's seat letting in water, probably snow or something that fell in there. Was $1200 to replace. Basically your car will be fine for a couple weeks, maybe a month then the battery will die.

Intermitent car starting problem with my 200 Saab


Hello
Could be nothing more then dirt and corrosion on the battery cable ends.

Look at the cable ends where they connect to the battery if there dirty or corroded you will need to clean them off with a wire brush.

Another possibility is the starter has a dead spot and will need to be replaced.

Key thob has stopped working, I have changed the battery but still broke, I am looking for the fuse for the central locking but cannot find it, saab 9-3 linear 2003


Saab's have very specific steps that you must follow when you change the batteries in your key fob. You might try these steps to re-sync your key fob to your security system....

If the battery has been changed outside the
car and the car is locked, proceed as follows:
1 Unlock the front left door with the traditional
key. If the car has a car alarm, this
will be tripped.
2 Open the door and insert the remote
control into the ignition switch. If the car
has a car alarm, this will be silenced.
The remote control and receiver unit are
now synchronized.

Is your SAAB automatic? If so, it is most likely the Neutral Safety Switch. I have had the same problem, it is very common in automatic Saab 9-3 models made in 1999-2002.
