I would remove the for voltage on the input leg socket with test light. Then find the output leg socket and jump it out if this works then you know it is the regulator. This doesn't explain why your rear windows do not work unless they run off the same regulator. Buy a Chilton's manual on your car to guide you.

Most likely you have a bad TWICE unit. it is located under the driver's seat, at a low point in the floor and often gets wet.

SOURCE: I have a 2004 9-3 and the passenger side window,mirror and lock don't have power the fuse is good. Any ideas? thanks Kim

This is common. Try disconnecting the harness at the door connector (by the door check and hinges) and then reconnecting the connector. Test. Still and issue, disconnect the battery's negative battery connection. If that doesn't do it, you will have to go to a Saab dealership with a Tech II and have them update the software for the Passenger Door Module and re-add the Module in programming.

You may need to adjust the shift linkage. As far as the roof check the fuse; if the fuse is good; it could be the switch or the convertible motor.

I have a 2004 Saab Aero 9-3 vert. Got a new battery over the winter and now the top does not work. Help?


The "top"? Convertible top? I would check the fuses first as it is always possible to blow a fuse when a battery is connected (or disconnected).

Bruce, ur best bet would be to replace the main control switch. change that switch and most likely all will be good. find urself a used main control (window) switch in the front or between front seats. buying used will be a hard find but still u will save money on that.

I hope this work out for u.

Well my battery of my mustang wint down and i had to chage the battery and my drivers window when it goes up it bouces bacj down to a 1/5 down and i want to know how to restore it.


NOTICE: Make sure no obstructions are present in the window system when carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: A battery disconnect does not require this procedure to be carried out unless the battery was disconnected while the window was operating.
NOTE: Excessive bounce-back (bounce-back that occurs with no obstructions present) may indicate a non-initialized window motor.
NOTE: Carry-out the de-initialization of the motor before initializing the motor.
NOTE: The motor will only operate in the 9-16 volt range. If the voltage drops below 9 volts, the window will not function correctly or may stop moving. If the voltage drops below 9 volts while the motor is operating, the motor will become de-initialized and will need to be initialized.
NOTE: The front window motors must be initialized whenever: a new window regulator and motor is installed, a new window glass is installed, a glass top run removal and installation or when carrying out any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the window system. A new front window motor is in a proportional up/down mode until initialized.
NOTE: The convertible rear window motors do NOT need to be initialized as they do not have one-touch up or one-touch down functions.
NOTE: All front window components (window glass, window regulator, window motor and glass top run) must be installed/tightened and adjusted to specification before carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: If this procedure is only partially completed, the front window motor remains non-initialized and only the proportional up/down functions operate. A non-initialized window motor may allow one-touch down operation, but does NOT allow one-touch up operation.

De-initialization then re-initialization

The motor can be de-initialized in 2 ways:

Disconnect the battery cable from the battery while the window is operating.

Remove the window motor fuse while the window is operating.

After the motor has been de-initialized, the initialization procedure must be carried out.

Make sure there are no obstructions present in the window system when carrying out this procedure. The door MUST be closed during this procedure (for convertibles, the top and quarter glass must be in the closed and up position), in order for the door window motor to initialize.

The windows must be in the full open position for this procedure to operate correctly.

Press and hold the window control switch in the UP position at the second detent until the window glass stalls into the glass top run for at least 2 seconds.

Once the top run is reached, hold the window control switch in the DOWN position at the second detent until the window glass stalls at the bottom of its travel for at least 2 seconds.

Cycle the window glass an additional 5 times to set the window soft stop for the down position.

Test for correct window operation by carrying one-touch up feature.

Good luck, if for any reason you can't give four thumbs up, please ask for more information. Thanks!

Convertbile top will not work it does not make any noise or respond in any way whats the problem


The convertible top is controlled by 2 electric motors. One for each side, located in the back corners near the rear 1/4 windows. Check 30A PWR ACC fuse in the panel left end dash panel. Convertible top switch located in center overhead by rear\view mirror. Make sure BYPASS switch L/R trunk is in NORMAL position. There is also a RELAY for the conv top in the R/R trunk. Hope this helps.

Power windows


First off does the window switch on the passenger side? if it does then you may just need the drivers side window switch. The front and the back windows work seperate from each other.
