I have a 2003 SAAB 9-3 2.0 Linear and just filled it up with gas and the gas gauge now reads empty and the engine light came on. I just got the car a week ago.


You may need a new fuel sender (sensor) is why car isn't reading your gas, and with the engine light now on that is cause your gas cap wasn't put on tight enough. I've had both of these happen to me with my car. Hope this helps.

Check engine light came on today on my 2002 Saab 9-5 2.3 Turbo. I have no clue why? Also, when I started it up this morning it said on the display [REAR LIGHT FAILURE]. Any solutions?


The simple one, you have a rear light blown. As for the check the engine light "you would need to get the code checked, that any Saab dealer can get by plugging a device into your car, and from there the problem will be narrowed down" sorry I cant be more specific but that light can come on for a multitude of reasons. :-(

I just bought a 1999 Saab 9-5 v6 and the check engine light came on yesterday and today on the way home from work my dash lights went out?????


Hi, this sounds like a voltage issue to me. Did all the lights go out on the dash, including the check engine light. Your best bet is to get the fault codes read at a local garage (not the main dealer unless you have money to burn). They should be able to give you indication of what caused the light to come on and you can take it from there.

there are two sensors on most cars a float on the pump assembly and a preasure guage on the top of the tank one of the two is faulty and will have to be replaced or the wiring checked at least either way the tank will have to be droped to see

It sounds like the timing chain self adjuster is not operating properly.
This unit is internal and is oil fed by engine oil pump.
Sometimes it can be remedied by replacing engine oil and filter, try 15x40 oil (for warm weather) or 5w30 (Cold climates)
