My 9 5 saab driver side heater provides no heat and fan works randomly. now it has gotten to the point where the fan never works.

You fan sound like it neeed to be changed. On the ACC control press AUTO and OFF simultaneously. and record any codes shown/if any and go from there chances are your blend door mechanism needs to be repaired.

My 99 saab 9-3 led screen is not readable anymore where can igo to have this repaired. also my led screen keepssaying that i need to tighten my gas cap, i bought a new cap, but the problem didn't go away,...

As for the LED screen, there is a way to fix this. The problem is the ribbon that connects the screen to the main board. It's glued on. After time the plastic in the ribbon shrinks causing it to ripple up, losing contact in spots.

open the cup holder, and reach in underneath and pull on the LED unit. You can pull it out by hand at this point. Unplug it.

take a torx bit and remove the black plastic cover around the unit.

locate the white ribbon and carefully press down at each connection point with a bic ballpoint pen.

then take some adhesive weather stripping (3/8" wide) and build up 3 layers of this ontop of the ribbon.

When you renstall the black cover, you will have to squeeze the stripping the down and work the cover over it. It should be a tight fit.

The stripping will expand against the black cover and keep the ribbon pressed against the board.

Use the black stuff that squeezes and slowly 'puffs' back up.

As for the fuel cap, you have a leak somewhere in the venting system. Try looking at the hoses attached to the charcoal canister inder the hood. All the fumes from the system vent thru that, and the pressure is also sensed from that canister.

2001 SAAB 9-3 SE won't send signal to start

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.

Could be 2 things...
THe nipple on the hood can be adjusted higher and lower to make a looser or tighter fit...
or the release cable can be tighted but a small clamp on the radiator core support check those 2 things first...

Windows will not stay up, they need reseting ?

Sounds like you may have broken so-called window glide rollers (aka window regulator bushings) which are the green plastic and metal clips that secure the window glass to the scissors lifts. Each window has two.
