SOURCE: How to sync phone with Saab 2003 / 9-3, with bluetooth device?

Sorry, the original Swedish version of the 9-3 had the bluetooth capability but GM removed it for cost reasons. GM has ruined Saab in many ways. There is no way to sync your phone with your 9-3.

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!

Saab's have very specific steps that you must follow when you change the batteries in your key fob. You might try these steps to re-sync your key fob to your security system....

If the battery has been changed outside the
car and the car is locked, proceed as follows:
1 Unlock the front left door with the traditional
key. If the car has a car alarm, this
will be tripped.
2 Open the door and insert the remote
control into the ignition switch. If the car
has a car alarm, this will be silenced.
The remote control and receiver unit are
now synchronized.

Hello.

There are two probable causes for this problem.

The first is the fan power relay is sticking in the closed position and drawing power even with the key off. When you disconnect the battery the relay resets itself and you are back to "normal" until you run the cycle over again.

You noted that your SAAB has manual climate controls. It still may be a good idea to check the BCM harness ground connections. BCM is the "Body Control Module". I do not have a wiring diagram available for your car so can offer no additional advice other than to say that millions of dlooars are spent in the USA every year due to dirty or loose ground connections on computer and module harnesses.

All the best.

Does the top go up and down now? If it doesn't, then it could be the cause of the problem. If the top does not work, then it could be pulling too much power and blew the fuse. Check all of the fuses. I am sure that it is just a blown fuse.

Water on any electrical part of the engine can cause problems. Even high humidity. The only parts you can easily check and dry out is the plug wires where they connect to the coils and any connections you can find where components are plugged into wiring a harness.

usually when the fan stays on is for a certain amount of time to allow cooling off the engine but if it goes on and not going off there has to be some kind of a short or another wire allowing that to happen without shutting off
