Yes, It would be. You might be able to take the Switches out and Clean them up But, There is no Guarantee that they will work. You may need to Replace them with new ones. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

    On those Saab's, When the Heaters go like that, You are Better off taking it to a Mechanic for Repair. There is a LOT Involved in Repairing it and I don't Type that Fast! LOL! I Personally Can't Stand even Lookin at a Saab. Drove one for a Customer once and Hated it. Just too European for me I guess. Drop me an Email and I will show ya My Hot Rods! Can't send Pics on here.

I have a 2004 Titan 2 WD Crew cab. The drivers window has stopped working and the passengers window will roll down but may not roll back up.

have you tried both the switches on pass side as well as the drivers. does the pass side work but not the drivers? do you like to drive and drink coffee if so your spilling coffee on the switches and coffee makes a film on the electric contacts and makes em not work. you need to remove the switch cluster and pop the buttons off and clean it , you tube it, or the drivers door wires from the door to the car frame are broken you will see a lumpy looking rubber boot from the door to the car when the door is open. if you carefully cut the boot open you might find broken wires

Saab window

something is stopping it movement thinks there is somthing it in the way and will go back down. same on the down. there is a control switch in the motor at fault. its more easyer just to change the motor to fix it as the motor has to come apart to get to the switch.

I was rolling down a window when all of a sudden the follow 4 things STOPPED WORKING and haven't worked since: - All power windows - Heater blower - Horn - Wipers All of the relays I've found seem in tact...

Is the car a convertible? If so the window controls operate through the convertible top computer.
By ignition switch module are you talking about the part under the lock cylinder? They do fail a lot.
What do you mean by the relays are intact? Have you checked for power at each fuse with the key on?

I have a 97 Saab 900 and randomly, when I rolled down the windows: All of the power windows stopped working, the heater blower won't turn on, the horn doesn't work, and the wipers won't come on. All at...

Used ignition switches are just as likely to be junk as the one you are replacing. Check for power at both sides of the each fuse for each affected circuit. IF the car has an ignition lock relay swap it, and make sure the it has power, ground, and is being turned on by the key. I can't remember if it is under the dash or hood, or if it even has one.

My 2004 SAAB 9-3 one touch windows don't work properly.

I'm not positive on Saab, but I know this works for Audi and it's worth a try: Roll the window down. Then close it as you did, holding the button. Once the window is closed, release the button and then quickly tap it in the same direction. That may be all you have to do. It works for Audi and BMW so it's at least worth a try.

Saab 93 2001 front windows blow a fuse putting windows down

The window motor is working too hard go to Napa and ask for the silicon lube made for windows and lube up the window rims and guides this should allow the motor to work less hard.

PWR Windows keep blowing fuse.

You have a short somewhere. Was the car ever in deep water?

What's a short? a short means electricity that flows thru a wire is also in contact with a ground or part of the chassis somewhere. This then blows the fuse.

It's an intermittent problem like you said...sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
Intermittent problems like this could mean that 1 or more BARE wires are or is moving while driving.

Have you ever spilled any liquids on the the keypads or buttons of the power window?

If you have spilled liquids or rain got on the buttons then this can cause your intermittent problems and would need to be taken apart, relubricated and tested for proper operation, OR replaced.

After replacing the gem module does it has to be programed

You definitely have a wiring problem. Fuses are blowing because DC (direct current) power is being short circuited by touching a grounded surface area or a negative wire. If its affecting two interior car functions while on the same fuse circuit, then check where the wires from both functions could or would intersect. In your case the windows roll down and the interior lights come on....they could intersect somewhere near the front door jamb or farther forward towards the fuse panel.
