    install the ECT Sensor 12m the rear side where the old one was, and still having the same problem...no fan spinning. i check the fan itself and that wors...checked all the wires,fuses and relays and theyre fine. On my dash board it has the miles/mpg/battery ststus and outside temperature. Now the outside temp doesnt work, now i think it works with the fan. when it was working the fan does come on and the temp sits at 7 0`clock. ive tried everything to resolve the problem. and it costing me more money taking it here,there and everywhere just to get it look at. if it was a vauxhall or a ford i can easily solve a problem without looking on a service manual. Saabs are a very nice comfortable motor but a big pain for problems.

The thermoswitch, if there is one*, is located on the lower portion of the radiator just in front of the turbo outlet pipe. Here is a picture: http://quasimotors.com/fanswich.htm
The other "radiator" is probably your A/C condenser.
You have a 1997 which is T5 engine management (begun in 1995), so there is no thermoswitch because the fan is controlled directly by the ECU from the signal given by the coolant temperature sensor. I would suspect that one of the fan relays has bought the farm. (On some cars, there were two relays, one for low speed and one for high). Here is a picture: http://quasimotors.com/cooling_fan_relays.htm
For general diagnostics of the cooling system, go here: http://quasimotors.com/coolfan.htm
2 stage cooling fan wiring diagram here: http://www.thesaabsite.com/9000/9000-fan-wiring.pdf
This also will tell you where to find other components to check, like the fan speed resistor, and provide other diagnostic checks.

Fan under passenger headlight wont turn off--turbo fan??


This does not make sense. The turbo is driven by exhaust gasses. I think you are referring to the thermo switch on the radiator. The car can be switched of and the fan will still run till it reach temprature and then only will it switch off.

Hi turbo blown on saab 9- 5 2001 Y


The part number is on a plate which is normally situated on the side of the turbo or between the inlet and outlet where the oil feed pipe is so either you can get it cleaned and see it in a small mirroror you need to remove the turbo. Otherwise you can get a motor parts shop to check it for you from few softwares available to them.

Cooling fans on radiator will not run. Voltage in plug at block thermostat is 5.4.this therm provides an earth switch. Bypassed the thermo to earth and fan relay engages momentarily only. Relay is ok....


The fan control thermo switch should be either "off" or "on".
Voltage should measure either +12 or 0V, depending on coolant temperature.
Replacing it should fix your problem.
