SOURCE: my '99 93 saab conert top wont go down. i hear the

most likely the top pistons start to leak and the motor can create enough pressure to actually lift the top back to go in the storage area... i would let the tonuea cover lift open then get out the car and look around to see for fluid residue.. if not and there are no leaks.. possible the seals in the pump it self has gone out.. and the motor is still trying to pump... the pump and motor is located behind the rear seat under the small plastic panel/.

SOURCE: 1999 saab convertible. The top goes up and 90% of

I had the same problem last summer. I fixed it by replacing the microswitches (kind of tricky to get to). BUT NOW I have this problem (I am going to copy/paste from another saab site I posted on) :

"Last summer, I had to replace one of the microswitches for the top & it finally worked fine.

Just a few weeks later, I replaced the car battery. MINUTES after I replaced battery, the top went back to doing what it was doing before I replaced the microswitch (when putting top back up, the cycle would stop when the back windshield was supposed to go down & lock down - it stays stuck up inthe air. Also, when top is down after several minutes it beeps 'check soft top' - The top was actually being put DOWN when the battery/car died. Then I went got a battery (in my 2nd car), replaced it, went to put top back UP & here I am...)

So I checked both the microswitches again & replaced the one I hadn't before - but it still won't work.

A friend who has a '05 convertibel said she thought the electrical system had to be 're-calibrated' or re-set when battery is changed.

Motor fuid is full. Propellar is new.

Car has been parked in my garage since NOV w/top down. Any advice? "



I posted that on saabsite.com - haven't heard back except for someone else having other electrical problems.

Did you find the solution to your? PLEASE let me know what you found out.

THANK YOU!! SK 9 FEB 10

The central lock system won't exactly lock the fuel "cap" but it does have an actuator that extends to prevent the fuel door from opening when the doors are locked. Easy to test, as long as that's working then you're lucky enough to not have to bother with a locking gas cap & more keys!

Convertible top acting up


There are a number of known issues affecting the 9-3 convertible top. TSB 811-1989 describes a problem and fix for the cables to the lock for the top cover.
TSB 811-2101 refers to the jamming of the top cover due to a deformed hinge and provides the fix for this.
TSB 811-2160 deals with instances where the first bow hits the top cover while the top is opening, due to a deformed shear pin, and provides that repair procedure.
Where the soft top cannot be operated or it stops in mid-operation, the SID displays the message CHECK
SOFT TOP COVER, and the following diagnostic trouble codes are be generated: B2025, B2026, B2030, B2031, refer to TSB 811-2236.
Any of these four problems can result in the top cover failing to open and close properly, and can interrupt the smooth operation of the opening and closing of the top.
Finally, the top may somehow have otherwise become out of sync and this does indeed require a Tech 2 diagnostic scan and programming tool to correct. All Saab dealerships have this tool, and an increasing number of independent shops that do appreciable work on Saabs are so equipped now.

'99 9-3 SE Conv. Top Issue...


R-
The 99 9-3 uses a hydraulic top system with a single pump and different solenoids which open and close at points to operate different pistons for the top operation. From your description, it sounds like one of the many microswitches for the system is defective, bent, or broken. This is usually more the problem with these tops than other real mechanical issues. I suggest taking it to an indy saab repair shop or saab dealer. In order to test what switch is failing you need to have the Tech 2 computer to communicate with the soft top ecu when the fault occurs.
