Automatic climate control module has gone bad. Pull your fuse to turn off. be careful, it may get hot and melt in a couple of different areas due to the faulty module not regulating draw. Take off the left kick plate in the front passenger compartment and replace the module. go on line, you can find one fairly cheap. hope this helps.

Do not do what I did and control with pulling the fuse, I melted the wires going into the motor and had to pull the blower motor and repair the connector due to it melting.

As a temporary fix, find the fuse/relay for the blower and remove it.

This sounds like a problem with the control unit on the dashboard (the unit is fairl easily removable). Replacements are not too expensive but it would be worth getting a diagnostic check by a reliable SAAB agent first before you spend any money or blow yourself up.

Blowers constantly blowing even without key in the ignition


You definitely have a short somewhere in the circuit. I dont know if its in the air speed control knob, the fan motor, the key switch, or a relay somewhere. If the fan kept blowing even after you removed the fuse, my first guess would be somewhere under the hood in a relay, or the key switch. Because everything usually turns off when you turn off the ignition key. But I am no Saab expert and electrical issues are a real pain, no matter what the make of car.
I have had that problem with a car before and ended up, putting a on/off switch in the blower motor power wire and just turned it off and on that way when I needed it. Not really the true solution, but it worked for my 25 year old car at the time. Good Luck!

I also have a 2004 saab 9-3 with the inside blower motor that wont turn off with key out of the car and even when the car is locked,It has manually air con panel. When i disconnet the battery and reconnect...


Hello.

There are two probable causes for this problem.

The first is the fan power relay is sticking in the closed position and drawing power even with the key off. When you disconnect the battery the relay resets itself and you are back to "normal" until you run the cycle over again.

You noted that your SAAB has manual climate controls. It still may be a good idea to check the BCM harness ground connections. BCM is the "Body Control Module". I do not have a wiring diagram available for your car so can offer no additional advice other than to say that millions of dlooars are spent in the USA every year due to dirty or loose ground connections on computer and module harnesses.

All the best.

Saab 93 convertable, Rain water fills the drivers footwell when the car is parked downhill.


I am not sure if it is the same problem I had with my '04 93 SS, but there is a cabin air filter that has a drain next to it that allows the rain water to run down to the ground. Mine was clogged up with leaves and other junk which caused the rain water to leak through the filter into the cabin. Being that yours is a different body style, your filter may be on the drivers side which would cause this. I would try to look up where your Cabin Air Filter is and try to clean the drain.

Saab 93 convertible roof won't open


Your tonneau motor is probably bad, though reprogramming the limits may fix it. You will need the factory tool, unfortunately. There is a lot of information on this webpage. Be sure to read the information relating to updates on 1995 models.

SAAB convertible roof wont open


I managed to sort the problem, turns out there's a shear pin. I found this pin sitting in the bag in the back (the one the roof folds into) Now i just have to replace that and hopefully it should work
