Question about 1996 Saab 9000

1 Answer

Head lights turn off when the car has been driven for about an ho

While driving the car for around an hour the head lights turn off for no reason. The Emergency flashers stop working. The High beams will not work intermittantly. These are all inconsistent but occur only after about an hour of driving the car. The lights are NEW. Is there a computer that controls these functions. The car has not been in accidents, the wiring harness under the hood appears to be in great shape for a 1996 9000. Any Ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

Radiator warning light flashed on and off several times on the way to work today. Tonight, did the same thing and then stayed on. I drove to an appointment several miles away. When I came back out...

if there is no noticable leaks might be head gasket. Check to see if a lot of vapour comming from exaust. You may have to get a pressure test on cooling system.

2002 Jeep Liberty headlights blink

I have the same problem. I had it when I turned on my Blinker and turned. When the switch in the steering wheel turn the blinker off it made my head lights blink sometimes. It has to do with the switch that controls the blinker and the head lights. It does not happen all the time.
