take the vehicle to your nearest saab dealer and ask for a diagnostic scan, yuo have a sensor failure, if left it could be expensive.

SOURCE: Adjust headlights on a 2004 Saab 9-3

Check the fuse box under the hood on drivers side, it will be number 17 and a 10 amp. this vehicle has automatic headlight adustment when you crank the car. If the fuse is blown the lights will point down to keep from blinding oncoming traffic.

Had same problem, in the boot right hand side, behind the removable panel there is :
1 - a hydraulic reservoir which must be at correct level.
2 - a black box (stc) this controls the roof system,
switch ignition off then pull the 2 connectors off for 30sec then reconnect.
This worked and hope this resolves your problem

SOURCE: how do I replace my 2004 Saab 9 3 linear's water pump.

Re : the computer , they better cover it under warranty or they ****.
Re : the water pump , you have a leak and they say it is the water pump , I have no reason to doubt that they have honestly checked out the problem and determined that a new water pump is the only solution but , damn $ 1000 is pretty steep. I would look around for another mechanic for a second opinion and a quote. Avoid dealerships. Not sure what engine you have but i just looked in my saab with a 2.3 and hope I never have to do mine. I am pretty good with a wrench but I know there would be lots of swearing involved.

I recently changed oil and filter on 2001 saab 9-3 how do you reset time for service indicator


Most vehicles can be done like this. Turn the key to run, press the fuel/gas pedal three time with in five seconds, slowly. The light will flash. When the light stops, turn the key off. Reset. Some others take a scanner to reset. Good luck.

2004 Hyundai Santa Fe loses exceleration


This is usually caused by failure of the accelerator pedal position sensor, but can also be caused by the throttle control motor. I would test the sensor first. If it fails, replace it. If it passes, che k the wiring and connectors for continuity to the pcm and throttle. If wiring is good, replace the throttle controller.

2004 saab 9-3 turbo won't accelerate


i am the owner of a 2004 saab 9-3 that had the same problem. the car could barely make it up a slight incline.

after diagnostics, they determined that it was a faulty "pedal travel sensor" (engine code P1238), which cost $590. after labor and taxes, my total came to $747.53. yikes.

sucked to pay that much, but it fixed the problem.

I ave acceleration problem with my saab 1.9tdi 150bhp i accelerate the car but it drives very slow and now the malfunction light has come on i need a lil help here thanks


could be a problem with the exhaust gas recirculation valve and it putting the car into a get you home mode which will reduce power best to get it onto a diagnostic machine to be sure as there are so many sensors that could fail but i have heard this is the most common one.

Wont shift out of 2nd gear but used to if you would let of the accelerator and let it idle down then it would shift but wont shift at all now


Check cable from throttle linkage to transmission that operates throttle valve on transmission. Not uncommon for the linkage at transmission to be pulled all the way when gas pedal pushed for quick acceleration, or passing, and stay stuck there. Engine off, wheels blocked for safety and/or park brake on, have someone depress gas pedal all the way to the floor slowly, while you watch linkage that cable is attached to on transmission. Then as they release pedal, it should move back in opposite direction. Spray it well, with WD-40 or similar lube and get it moving by hand if necessary to make sure it is fully returning. That may be all it is.

I have a 2001 nissan pathfinder 4w. The OBD system-readiness status: Says catalytic converters, NOT READY; oxygen sensors, NOT READY; evaporative system, NOT READY. So did not pass inspection, I was told...


You have to re-set the obd via using Nissan's approved drive-cycle which is;

1. Start the engine when the engine coolant

temperature gauge needle points to C. Allow

the engine to idle until the gauge needle

points between the C and H (normal operating

temperature).

2. Accelerate the vehicle to 55 MPH (88

km/h), then quickly release the accelerator

pedal completely and keep it released for at

least 6 seconds.

3. Quickly depress the accelerator pedal for a

moment, then drive the vehicle at a speed

of 53 to 60 MPH (86 to 96 km/h) for at least

5 minutes.

4. Stop the vehicle.

5. Accelerate the vehicle to 35 MPH (55 km/h)

and maintain the speed for 20 seconds.

6. Repeat steps 4 through 5 at least 3 times.

7. Accelerate the vehicle to 55 MPH (88 km/h)

and maintain the speed for at least 3 minutes.

8. Stop the vehicle and turn the engine off.

9. Repeat steps 1 through 8 at least one more

time.

If step 1 through 7 is interrupted, repeat the

preceding step. Any safe driving mode is acceptable

between steps. Do not stop the engine

until step 7 is completed. If you cannot or

do not want to perform the driving pattern, a
NISSAN dealer can conduct it for you.
