Saab 9-3 Aero Fuel Pump Fuse Problem

My 20 amp fuel pump fuse keeps blowing. I've had the fuel pump replaced, but the fuse keeps blowing. Also, my passenger side fog light keeps going out. Not sure if these are connected or not. PLEASE HELP! Car keeps dying in rush hour traffic

    This would sounds like some sort of wiring / shorting issue. I don't have the wiring schematic in front of me, but almost for sure this is it. To be 100% sure you could replace your fuel filter. Did you replace the pump or was it done for you? Also, did you get the replaced pump back from the person that did the job? It still may be good. The odds of 2 bad pumps are very rare.

SOURCE: key replacement cost 2008 Saab 7x aero

Is it just a "physical" fit problem?
Because if it is merely this and not your electronics you could always buy another key on ebay like this
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310130782609

.......then all you would have to do is pop open the casing like you were going to remove the battery, instead pulling the little circuit board also and replacing it with your own one in your damaged fob!!

Most thermostats are located at the engine end of the upper rad hose. Rarely some thermostats are at the engine end of the lower rad hose but unlikely. Certain VW's have that distinction.Let me know if this helps.Moe

SOURCE: fault with saab 9-3 aero

Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.

- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all
- windscreen washers don't work, at all
- "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers
freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the
control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position
- same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)

The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself,
partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above.
also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.

Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple"
worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine.
Good luck.

2004 pt cruiser keeps blowing fuel pump fuse,replaced fuel pump, no change.runs rough at idle and stalls,blows fp fuse,also replaced ign.coil,plug wires and plugs also changed relays


There are two fuses for the fuel pump relay. One fuse is load side of relay, that fuse also sends voltage to load side of asd relay, the asd relay sends voltage to several systems, two of which are the fuel injectors and ignition coil. I'm not telling you to replace, anything, but, you need to do some testing.
The other fuse goes to control side of relay, smaller amp fuse. I don't know the amp rating of the fuse that keeps blowing.
See that fuse, it supplies voltage to load side of fuel pump relay and also to asd relay.

Does a 1994 Chevrolet Silverado c1500 have a fuel pump


Yes, it has an electrical fuel pump located in the gas tank. First check the fuel pump fuse located in the fuse panel on the left outer side of the dash. You can only access this panel with the driver's door open. It is located near the black button for the dome lights and chime.

It is a 20-amp fuse. Replace it if it is blown, but ONLY with a 20-amp fuse. The wire harness for the fuel pump sometimes goes bad, or the pump motor, or the wire harness inside the tank to the pump motor. If the blown fuse is replaced with a larger-amp fuse, you could cause a fire or explosion.

If it blows the replacement fuse, stop. Fuses blow for a reason, 9 times out of 10. Call a tow truck to remove the truck to a qualified repair shop.

that gray wire is the fuel pump power supply . You cut the wire were an positive tested it ??? An what does that mean . you positive tested it ? Wish you people would learn to talk like a mechanic would ! If you cut the wire near the relay an checked with a ohm meter or a test light with B+ volt , of couse it going to show ground ! It's going through the fuel pump windings to ground on the other side . What fuse keeps blowing ?ECM B - 20 amp ? This powers the fuel pump as well . May not even be the fuel pump circuit blowing the fuse . You need to find everything that fuse powers and isolate the different circuits . Videos on youtube showing how to find a short .

1998 jeep grand cherokee limited fog lights don't work.


This means you have a short. I am assuming you are talking about the fog light fuse. Does this fuse blow whether the fog lights are off? or just when turned on?

If the fuse blows when the switch is off the switch is bad too. If the fuses only blows when the switch is turned on you have a short in the wiring or bulb.

I don't know if you have test equipment so first I would say to remove both driving bulbs from their sockets and see if there is corrosion. Fix that problem if there is corrosion.

Then install a fuse without the bulbs and see if the fuse blows. If you have a test light you can bridge the fuse panel without putting a fuse in. If there is a connection you have a hot wire grounding. If there is no problem install one light, fuse or bridge the fuse holder and see if 1 light works. Try each side. This way you can isolate the problem. Then visibly inspect wiring.
