Question about 1999 Saab 9-5
On my SAAB 95 year 2000 the left hand full beam does not work. I think it is one of two things. Either the headlight control box is kaput (the orange box looking like the relays but twice the height). Or there is a cable failure between the relay and the headlight control box. I believe it is the latter. Reason being that I can identify the in-feed to the control box for the right hand side full beam but not for the left hand side. So can someone tell me which of the positions on the headlight control box is the in-feed from the full beam relay for the left hand full beam head light? I can then determine exactly what the problem is. I need to MOT on Saturday (16th of May) and I can not afford to leave the car at a mechanic. Your help is highly appreciated. Thanks, Martin.
Might as well check the orange headlight control unit first, as it is an extremely common issue, and will only take you 20 minutes. Here is a step by step tutorial with pictures to examine and repair it. The tutorial is from a 1995 900 but is fully applicable to your car.
