SOURCE: Battery not holding charge

Hi,

From initial indications, your analysis is correct. Pls replace the battery. Of course the only way to validate this is with a new battery.

The electrical system of most vehicles could be divided into two, the charging system and the load. The load would be from the headlights, to the computer and all the electrical consumer of the car. If there is anything wrong with any of the load, the fuse would be blown. On the other hand, the charging system is as its name implies, restores the electrical energy of the battery once the engine is running. If something is wrong (battery not charging), then there would be a warning indicator in the dashboard.

Since you have not reported any of the fuses blown or any of your electrical devices not functioning nor any warning lights, then in all likelihood, it is just the battery.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 1999 Saab 900 radio reset code

whenever the battery is removed (or car experiences any loss of power) you must type in security code for  radio (this is the case with BMWs and Volvos as well).  Go to any saab dealership and they can remove the radio and get your radio's 4 digit code, they all have one.  Yes, I have done this before ` they didn't charge me and I was in and out in ten minutes.

SOURCE: 2003 Saab 9-3 won't start. Battery appears to be fine.

You could try tapping the starter and/or having it checked by a mechanic. If the vehicle is starting once in a while, have a mechanic check the Crank Shaft Position Sensor located on the Intake Manifold under an aluminum bracket. The wire to the sensor leads towards the throttle body. the connector at the throttle body is blue. This sensor is notorious for giving out gradually. If this is the problem, seriously replace it as the vehicle could die when driving (i've heard, but don't quote me on that). I owned a 2001 9-3 turbo and the same thing would happen until it no longer cranked. I replaced it when i researched the issue on the internet. The car turned on as soon as i replaced it 8) and did not have the same problem again.

Good luck!

SOURCE: fault with saab 9-3 aero

Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.

- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all
- windscreen washers don't work, at all
- "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers
freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the
control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position
- same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)

The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself,
partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above.
also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.

Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple"
worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine.
Good luck.

SOURCE: saab 9-3 trip computer SID with only partial display, fixable?

TRY THIS: http://www.saab9-5.com/howto/sidrepair.htm
That shows Step by Step info how to do it, and it looks promising, Im going to try that on my 9-5 Trip computer and Im sure the 9-3 has the same since Saab models from 1998 - 2003 have the same common problem, save yourself the money on a refurbished one, I got quoted $300 for a new one, why bother if I can fix it myself, and if I scew it up, then buy a refurb one,

How to enter the radio code in 1995 saab 900s.


When you start the car the display should ask you for the code....Code In.....you should be able to simply enter the code and the radio should come back on. If 'Code In' does not display when you turn on the radio press and hold the 'band' button and 'code in' should come up on the screen.....let me know if that helps....if not I will go out and re-do mine on my 1997 Saab 900S to double check.....good luck

HI, my renault clio radio and clock display are dead


Hi All, the very same thing happened to me. Cold weather broke my radio and the display screen stayed on with the time and temperature but the radio wouldn't work. I rang Renault & they said I need to come in an get a new radio but I put it off. In the end the problem started affecting my battery and the car wouldn't start. But then when I jump started it, it also started the radio again perfectly. Problem solved!
Hope this helps. Good luck!

2000 Jetta Radio is dead after a dead battery jump start


Did you check the fuse that is behind the radio ? There is a fuse which might of blown, but you will need to remove the radio from the dash and you need special tools for this.
