My saab stalls out when the engine gets warm

May mean you have a bad crank sensor or throttle body. Have the crank sensor and throttle body checked. Replace if needed.

Saab 9-5 need to give alittle throttle for cold engine start

the idle air control valve may be bad or just needs cleaned out. idle air control valve acts the same as a choke. if it is messing up it will cause engine not to run right.

I have a 1999 Saab 9-3. The driver side electric seat will move but only at jumpy intervals.

The motor is dieing... needs to be replaced.

Same thing is happening to my 99 9-3.

Saab 9-5 air conditioner is out

Totally depends what is wrong. If it simply a leak somewhere, it could cost under $200: find the leak, replace the hose or fitting, done. If the A/C compressor has gone bad, it could be around $1200: new compressor, accumulator, labor to install.

Good Luck!

Why do i have to take my remotes to a saab dealer for them to program them for $99.oo. i have 2 remotes for my saab. but they need to be programed.. any help on programming these myself? its a 99 Saab 9-3...

They need to be set to the computer in your car. The remotes are generic...

BUT Maybe it is in your Owners Manual... But otherwise... You are gonna have to pay to have them reset!

Windows will not stay up, they need reseting ?

Sounds like you may have broken so-called window glide rollers (aka window regulator bushings) which are the green plastic and metal clips that secure the window glass to the scissors lifts. Each window has two.
Window regulator bushings:

Part no. 4493433, $7.14 USD, at saabsite:

Part Code: 4493433
Part Name: Window Roller
Part Brand: Genuine Saab
Part Cost: $5.92 USD
Part Description: Window roller for any 94-98 900, 9-3 99-02 (and 03 convert), 9-5 all. 2 per window regulator.

Or aftermarket (Scantech)
Part Code: 4493433A
Part Name: Window Roller
Part Brand: ScanTech
Part Cost: $2.99 USD
Part Description: Window roller for any 94-98 900, 9-3 99-02 (and 03 convert), 9-5 all. 2 per window regulator.

Remove the inside door panel to expose them and replace any that are broken.

Saab 9-3 engine into 9-5

the engines are different model engines since they run off the computer im thinking that you need to set the computer to the 9.3 since the specs run the 9-5 at different frequency the enigine modules still think its a 9-5 in which you want the computer to run it at 9-3 this gives the high throttle reving

you need a laptop and your cars software to set the idle control for vehicle and possibily the proper idle control module for engine
