Question about 2004 Saab 9-3
Hi i have a saab 93 convertible 54 plate and the windscren washer for the windscreen keeps blowing a 30 amp fuse it works for approx 3 seconds and then the fuse blows. change the fuse and it does the same again. any ideas is it the pump
OK guys. How cold is it where you are, and do you have
1. headlight washers as well
2. The right mix of screenwash/ water for your system
If not, check that you washer bottle has not frozen, blocking the pump and causing a system overload.
Also, check that the headlight washers (if they pop up from the bumper) are not frozen to the bumper body (it doesn't take much - try warming them with a hairdryer).

I have the same problem but with a twist, when filling the bottle it leaks out of the wheel arch so i then top back up only to find that it only takes about 300ml before its overflowing again.
Add to this mix the 30amp fuse blowing, could this also be the pump causing this problem, how easy is it to change and where is it.
Any help would be appreciated.

I have sorted my problem by fitting a new pump (around £15) from main dealer (Southampton Saab)
It was easy to fit - just needed a few tools. I have since refilled the washer bottle with neat screen wash - which I will use until the summer when there is no cance of it freezing.

Hi, Small Island was on the right line. For me, the issue was that the water had frozen in the water reservoir. I boiled a kettle and poured it into the water reservoir, left for a few mins and the issue was resolved. I spoke to someone from Saab who suggested that when it's really cold he actually uses the whole 5 litre screen wash tubs neat in the washers. He adds no water and thus no-longer has the issue.

I belive you have a short circuit i that pump or on ane of the cables to it, as soon as you put it on it blow the fuse coz the power takes the wrong way.
Good luck to you
