If it is anything like the 9-5 Saab it is probably the relay in the black relay box under the hood. It is a large orange one on the 9-5. Should be able to locate from diagram on relay box lid if yours is not orange. Real cheap fix. Can get relays on eBay.
open the hood, reach in behind headlight. there will be a black or gray plastic ring. Unscrew the ring counter-clockwise and pull it back out of the way. Then take the bulb and socket, turn it counter-clockwise just a little bit and it will pull out and you can change the bulb.
The following steps were for a 99 95 but should apply to all cars with slight variations. Unlike with some other types of cars... the wiring to your burnt-out headlamp (not to the Head...light Assembly) is hidden. First, find the large dome-like black plastic cover on the back of the headlight assembly. Rotate it slightly to unlock, and it should fall away.
Grasp the plastic connector that is now revealed, and wiggle it from side to side while pulling toward the rear of the car.
Depress the upper part of the metal restraining clip so that it can swing down and out of the way.
Gently pull, or rotate and pull, the headlamp out of the headlight assembly.
Being careful not to touch the glass on your new headlamp... (use a clean cloth)...grasp the lamp by the two metal tabs and gently insert it into the hole in the assembly.
Replace the connector.
Replace the black plastic cover, rotating slightly to lock. Check to make sure it is locked in place.
To check the oil level open the boot - at the very back remove the 4 plastic clips that hold the carpet in place. Slightly to the left of the center there are 2 holes - shine a light in the bottom and look through the top one to check the level.
To add oil - fold down the seat backrest. Remove the plastic trim - held on by 4 screws and 2 pop out plastic cllips.
Undo the 8 large bolts that hold the cover in place - 2 on top and 3 on front and back.Then lift up the cover from the front edge. You will then be able to get to the resevoir - you will need a funnel to poor fluid in.
Generally, these parts are car specific and rarely interchangeable, body parts especially; however check on the Saab Depot website as they do show what parts will fit alternate vehicles : http://www.saabdepot.com/
Hope this helps, if it does, please give it a "thumbs up"!
The dip stick end should have a plastic square piece with two roundish bulbs on each end. The oil level should read just at the bottom of the top bulb (the bulb nearest the yellow cap at the top end of the dip stick). This indicates full. A level reading anywhere between the two bulbs is adequate but not optimal. Oil below the top end of the bottom bulb, means 1 quart low, and no oil at all on the bottom bulb means get some oil in there double quick.
To replace the headlamp on a Saab 9-3, open the hood. Behind the
headlamp there is a round black plastic cover; screw clockwise and pull
back; there is a metal clip holding headlamp in place (9003 i believe
is the halogen number). locate top of clip and move very slightly
clockwise; the top will pivot down on a hinge; release the wire harness
and pull out bulb. Retrace these steps to introduce the new bulb to
