Speedo and rev counter reading even when engine is off!


I have a similar problems on my 2005 9-3. It has developed a number of minor electical issues. including dial and false warning light triggers. I have fixed most of them by simply going round the car disconnecting the electical connectors and spraying "switch cleaner" (Maplin or Radio Shack).
The only problem I have left is the rev counter occasionally starts reading high, removing the fuse (end of dash panel - 4th fuse down) for about 30s with engine off normally resets everything back to normal.
Hope that helps.

SAAB 9-5 LINEAR TID DIESEL SALOON 3.0 DIESEL THE FOLLOWING DEFECT: THE CAR STARTS, RUNS AND DRIVES SWEETLY,THE TEMPERATURE GAUGE NEVER GOES ABOVE THE HALFWAY MARK AND THE HEATER BLOWS CONSTANT HOT AIR....


I had the same problem on my 9-5 vector 3.0 TiD with the top up coolant warning. Nearly became bankrupt trying to diagnose the problem and trips to Saab. Header tank, sensors, pressure tested etc. The Saab squaddies couldn't figure it out until it got worse. It's a head gasket failure despite passing pressure tests initially...sounds like it's still early days on yours. Had to replace the engine for near £5000.but under warranty :-) Reckon 2.5-3k at a good specialists.

93 Vector Sport. Turbo keeps cutting out


very common issue with post 2001 turbos. the fault is usualy down to the air flow meter (mounted on the airbox or induction pipe). you will find its at its worst when warm. do not fall for a garage telling you the turbo has failed.

I suspect you have a problem in the security system receiver module, which in most cars must be programmed by the dealer.

Stiff gearchange on 93 vector diesel


A few things can cause your symptoms. Check the slave cylinder, see if the res. is full, any leaks, or if the pedal changes if you pump it. If it checks out then you may need a new pilot bearing, throw-out bearing, and/or clutch assembly.
