Question about 2001 Saab 9-3

1 Answer

Speedometer, check engine, hazara and tcs lights stay on,

While I was driving my speedometer gauge quit working, the hazard light, tcs light, abs light, check light are all on and won't go off. While the care is running, everything runs smoothly with the engine, when I get to a red light and idle, it idles a lot harder than it ever had, then when I accelerate it is fine. When I go from Drive to park, the rough idling stops and is fine. Please help!

    I have similar problem. 2000 Saab 9-5 SE wagon- first the TCS, ABS, Brake, and Hazard lights all came on at same time (no check engine light), but car ran OK. This happens intermittently. Now, the Check Engine light comes on by itself (no other lights), I drive for a while, then all the above lights come on and speedometer and Odometer don't work. The group of lights come on and off intermittently, but the check engine light pretty much stays on now, independently. What is it? The ABS unit? are these symptoms related?

    Do you have a check engine light on? The idling issue sounds like the classic throttle body. The issues of all the lights could be a ignition switch. Do the lights stay on?

I have a 1998 Cadillac catera in which both the tcs and abs warning lights come. When they do the speedometer quits working. This is an intermittent problem.


There should be a vehicle speed sensor that is tied into your abs and tcs systems. I would recommend getting this changed. Also have your wheel bearings checked.

My speedometer stopped working ,my abs light stays on and my check engine light stays on and the brake light stays on


Check the "tone wheel" and magnetic pickup that sends the signal to the speedo, also to the ABS, and possibly integrated into the brakes for brake light.

It is one magnetic pickup that controls these three lights. As far as Engine goes, get the car to an Autozone (if it is safe to drive) and they will check all your codes, including check engine, with their scanner for free and identify the location of the problem for you for FREE!.

Hope this helps.

I have a 1999 ford ranger 2 wheel drive automatic


Sometimes this works, ABS light on, check engine light on, speedometer not working, and the automatics start shifting hard or not shifting at all? One bolt and the part is cheap, its weird how one part controls so much.

Intermittent Speedometer Operation


Replace the speed sensor on the transmission. This controls the speedometer.
