1999 9-3 Turbo front light failure--will not start

I have a 1999 9-3 Turbo Saab. When I started the car, the message board displayed that there was a "front light failure." I took out the manual, researched what bulb I needed, and went to the nearest auto place to pick the bulb up. I carefully followed every direction when replacing the bulb, and when i tested it, it came on, however, the car did not come on. . it did some weird thing and now the automatic locks will not lock or even start up. Has a fuse been blown?

Where do you find the engine numberon a 1999 saab 95 wagon with a 2.3t. the turbo is shot and the parts store needs the engine number to be sure they order have the right one.


Looking from the front of the car, the engine number is on the right side, down low near the gearbox. See the (unfortunately rather unclear) diagram below:

1999 saab 9-5 while driving it is jerking, at times it does not start without a jump


If the battery cable are not corroded, replace the battery. The battery is a very important component of an electrical system. Any check engine lights? 99 models often have a hole burned into the turbo hose on the right side of the car.

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. :-(

Just changed my motor and I am now having trouble with the car once I start to drive it. it i get a blinking check engine light and nothing else lots of smoke in exaust and I noticed that the turbo boost...


well to start, the blinking check engine light means it has a catalyst damaging misfire. is it a 4 cyl or v-6? possible ignition cassette failure. all the smoke and turbo issue could be faulty turbo.

1999 SAAB 9-5 Does blow some smoke when you first start the car. This just started last week. Stops after it runs.


it sounds like it's either over loading on fuel or one of the valve seals has started to leak.

Refitting Saab 9-5 Turbo


The turbo is located on the front cylinder bank, under the engine cover and heat shield. The exhaust turbine housing is integrated into the exhaust manifold so this entire piece must be removed. Contact me via email and I will provide information on where to get your turbo rebuilt.
