SOURCE: 2003 Saab 9-5 Check Engine Light

Take the car to Autozone, they will read the codes via OBD II for free.  Other parts stores may have the same policy ... call first.   My VW dealer charges $40 to pull the codes!!   I bought a low-end OBD II reader for $50, as the wife and I  both have VWs.

White smoke is usually antifreeze, the most frequent cause of this is head gasket blown or cracked head ... big bucks.  Hopefully this is not you.  Unless the car had a dramatic overheating incident, for most makes of cars, this should not happen until you have over 100K miles, probably closer to 200K.   
White smoke could also be break fluid sucked in from power brake booster.  If it's brake fluid, it will smell very bad.  
On cold days, when the car first starts, white smoke can just be normal condensation in the tailpipe ... if it happens after the car is warmed up ... it's something else.
Check your coolant overflow tank level ... if it's very low or empty ... put water in (don't bother with antifreeze yet in case you are burning it up in the engine).  
Good luck, ..ajm

SOURCE: Check Engine light and traction control light stay

there is nothing to do here but have the dealer run a scanner test to see what trouble codes were set with the lights coming on, until then there is no way to tell what the problem might be as there are over 200 possibilities.

P1260 code


It's gone into "limp home mode"

There is a diagnostic code P1625 for 2001 Saab 9-3 convertible with 88,115 miles. Is this an expensive fix?


P1625 means that the engine computer has lost communication with the antilock brake and/or traction control computer for at least 3 seconds. How expensive this is depends on why it has lost communication, It could be something as simple as a loose connection at a wiring connector or a broken or shorted wire in the PCI bus circuit inside the wiring harness. (Which may require considerable diagnostic time to find) or it could be an internally failed ABS module.

Recommendation:
If you are NOT experiencing ANY of the symptoms below, I would simply clear the code and move on.... It is an intermittent fault that you will most likely not find very easily. If you ARE experiencing ONE OR MORE of these symptoms, then the problem needs to be diagnosed by checking the ABS module's ability to communicate with a scanner while testing the PCI Bus circuits.

Other possible symptoms of Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P1625
• Speedometer malfunctioning
• Traction Control malfunctioning
• Antilock Brake System malfunctioning or ABS light on
• Cruise Control malfunctioning

Abs and traction lights stay on saab 9 3 2005 1.9 vector sport


The abs light , when on turns off the traction control thats why that light is on,once the abs is repaired the traction light will go out, you need to first have the computer scanned for codes, the codes for the abs are stored in the abs computer, these codes will tell you what part of the system is not working. most of the time its a wheel speed sensor but scanning the codes is needed to find out,

Check engine light came on today on my 2002 Saab 9-5 2.3 Turbo. I have no clue why? Also, when I started it up this morning it said on the display [REAR LIGHT FAILURE]. Any solutions?


The simple one, you have a rear light blown. As for the check the engine light "you would need to get the code checked, that any Saab dealer can get by plugging a device into your car, and from there the problem will be narrowed down" sorry I cant be more specific but that light can come on for a multitude of reasons. :-(

I have a 2000 9-5 saab 4 cylinder but the a/c doesnt always blow but it sometimes blows, the cruise control doesnt work, and the engine has a knocking noise.


Well, these are 3 issues and for the A/C have to check the coolant pressure, engine knock is not good and will have to have it checked out by someone who knows Saabs.

My 2002 saab 9-5 shakes and sputters for about


Water on any electrical part of the engine can cause problems. Even high humidity. The only parts you can easily check and dry out is the plug wires where they connect to the coils and any connections you can find where components are plugged into wiring a harness.

2002 saab 9-5 with 95,500 miles has check engine ligt on. oil was changed 3 weeks ago. I drove the car Saturday morning w/o any problems for 20 minutes. 2 hours later when I was leaving again the light...


The message light does not check all internal systems.

Have someone at a local parts store do a free code scan for you, this will tell you what code is making the light come on, and what that code indicates is wrong.

I have a 2003 Saab convertable and the traction control light comes on from time to time. When it does it causes the engine to stall a low idle


That same thing happened to my 2002 Saab convertable and I believe it ended up being a failed throttle body sensor. It was quite the pricy part, I think after everything was said and done it was around $1,000. Good luck!

Check engine & traction control lights on


It might be the water temperature sensor for the brain not reading the right temperature, causes wrong parametres in the warming up periode, and then the diagnostic lamp will show.
