SOURCE: 2003 Saab 9-5 Check Engine Light

Take the car to Autozone, they will read the codes via OBD II for free.  Other parts stores may have the same policy ... call first.   My VW dealer charges $40 to pull the codes!!   I bought a low-end OBD II reader for $50, as the wife and I  both have VWs.

White smoke is usually antifreeze, the most frequent cause of this is head gasket blown or cracked head ... big bucks.  Hopefully this is not you.  Unless the car had a dramatic overheating incident, for most makes of cars, this should not happen until you have over 100K miles, probably closer to 200K.   
White smoke could also be break fluid sucked in from power brake booster.  If it's brake fluid, it will smell very bad.  
On cold days, when the car first starts, white smoke can just be normal condensation in the tailpipe ... if it happens after the car is warmed up ... it's something else.
Check your coolant overflow tank level ... if it's very low or empty ... put water in (don't bother with antifreeze yet in case you are burning it up in the engine).  
Good luck, ..ajm

SOURCE: I need an engine diagram for a 1995 saab 900 se V6

A SAAB dealer should be able to print one out for you. BTW that engine is practically identical to the V6 used in a caddy Catera, and Saturn Ion. Those diagrams would be the same, so you might want to search that also.

SOURCE: my 2003 SAAB 9-3 check engine light and

unfortunately this means you need to get yourself to a trusted transmission repair facility very quick. the torque convertor on your vehicle is not operating the way it should. this is going to be an expensive repair, i tell you this so your not suprised. but do your homework and find someone with a great reputation for their work. dont take your saab to just anyone. these cars can get really screwed up without the right people workin on it. the transmission will need to come out.

SOURCE: Saab 9-3 SE won't start!!!

My boyfriend was having the same problem with his 2002 9-3 and in reading the user manual i found the following...when the car wouldn't start this morning he tried it and instead of having to wait 15 minutes for it to start, it started right up. Oh and his screen didn't give an error.

Electronic starting interlock
(immobilizer)
When the key is inserted in the ignition, a
signal is sent to the receiver. If the signal is
verified, the engine can be started.
Each time the key is removed from the ignition,
the electronic immobilizer is activated.
If a fault is detected (e.g. in the transmitter)
”KEY NOT ACCEPTED” will appear on the
SID.
In this case, you can still start the car if you
turn the ignition key to ON and press one of
the buttons on the key.
Take the car to an authorized Saab dealer to
have the system checked.

If the car does not start
If the text "KEY NOT ACCEPTED" appears
on the SID when the engine refuses to start,
the trouble may be a fault in the transponder
of the key or in the receiver of the ignition
switch. Proceed as follows:
• Turn the key back to the LOCK position.
• Turn the key to the ON position.
• Press one of the buttons on the remote
control (the LED on top of the dash stops
flashing).
• Start the engine.
Try the other key. If it works, the trouble is in
the first key.
Call on an authorized Saab dealer for
inspection and correction

SOURCE: speedometer not working and check engine light is

ONLY APPLIES TO CONDITION OCCURING AFTER WORKING ON BRAKES
My son's 1998 9-5 had similar issues after we had rebuilt the callipers and had a general refurbishment of the front hub. No amount of bleeding the brakes or checking components resolved the problem. We were resigned to taking it in for a diagnostic report but found that after driving a short distance the warning lights disappeared despite having previously run the car in drive with the front wheels raised which was when we noticed the lack of speedo.
My guess, and had been a bit of hope, is that the system needed to recalibrate after all the work we had done. Perhaps it hadn't liked the front wheels turning whilst the back remained stationary - whatever.

Engine knocking noise in 2000 saab 9-3 SE?


It's a common problem with these cars i am actually fixing mine as of now. That car is all about oil pressure and when it is low you'll start to get a tap and or what sounds like a knock due to the lifters not having enough pressure. Try taking your oil pan off and check your oil pick up line going from the oil pan to the turbo. A lot of times it gets a lot of sludge build up and makes the pressure little to none. If that looks clear check the slump inside the oil pan and see if that has sludge build up. Well hope this helped

1999 Saab 9-5 SE


I own a  99' 9-5 V6 turbo SE.  Had the same thing.  Started smelling gas in the car, sometimes.  Instead of not starting it died (as in the engine stopped) on a barren stretch of road at night.  Towed to the Saab dealer: Conclusion?  Replaced the fuel pump and sending unit. Don't ask how much.
