Question about 2006 Saab 9-7X

Open Question

Saab 97x headlights go out when driving

I have a 9.7x Saab and while driving late the other night. All my headlights went black and I couldn't turn them back on. The only lights that worked were the high beams and if I turned them off then I had no lights at all. Very dangerous and very disturbing. Have not had the problem but once since that night- have you heard of this problem before?

Saab 97x headlights turn off all of a sudden, sometimes coming back on, but tonight they didn't. had to use my brights


Some vehicles use a circuit breaker in the headlight circuit so that when there is a short then the breaker opens and then closes so that night vision is not totally lost from a blown fuse . Check out the system for a blown fuse or faulty breaker or faulty light module.

Headlights not working on Saab 97x


Sounds like the main headlamp relay. Located in the fuse panel. You may be able to swap it over with an identical one that powers another system to test it. Note - make a note of the position of any relays you remove, It can be confusing when there are lots of empty slots.

2004 trailblazer. Low beam headlights go out while driving at night for no apparent reason. Saw other posts like this on other sites. How do I fix it and are they doing a recall for this? Thanks


I read over the recalls and they do have recalls on brake and turn signal lights but not the low beam headlights while driving at night.

Sounds like the relay or headlamp driver module relay 46, for the headlights is going bad, though.
Or, it could alternatively be bad grounding of wire somewhere or bad wiring in general.

I would check in the underhood fuse box for the relay and see if wiggling it to ensure a good connection helps matters.
