Check the filament checker relay. It sometimes suffers a break in the solder between the circuit and the 'legs'. I had this problem and it was cured when re-soldered.

Have a 1999 9-3 saab. Low beam headlights work, but not the high beam. Replaced bulb, but have the same problem. Can someone help resolve this issue?


If it is anything like the 9-5 Saab it is probably the relay in the black relay box under the hood. It is a large orange one on the 9-5. Should be able to locate from diagram on relay box lid if yours is not orange. Real cheap fix. Can get relays on eBay.

Both lowbeams not working, changed bulb and checked relay and fuses, still nothing


Does high beam work.
This could be a faulty flash (high beam switch)
It is unusual for both sides to fail.
Also you could check the actual lightswitch has no lose connections

Driver's side high beam on my 2001 Saab CV won't work. Passenger side is okay. This was an intermittent problem for a while, and now has gone permanent. I've replaced the bulb. I've...


No, you haven't missed anything I can think of, but the fact that it was intermittent, then permanent tells me that somewhere therein lies the answer. I admittedly don't know anything at all about "the orange light control relay", but it seems that if that's the problem it would probably affect both sides. Sorry I can't be more help. . .

The drivers side headlight on my 2002 Saab won't


This is probably a problem with the orange headlight relay under the hood in the relay black box. Take the relay out and clean contacts and put back in. If does not fix, try a new relay or swap with another 9-5 to troubleshoot.

2007 Saab Convertable, how to change driver side headlight?


How do I replace the left Xenon low beam bulb on my 2007 9-3 4dr 2.0 turbo SAAB?. The battery box , fuse box and windshield washer resivour practically a **** upto the back of the bulb area.
Do I have to remove the entire headlight assembly? if so will that ruin the auto light adjustment for the lowbeam.

Headlight main beam not working


Strange headlamp problems on Saabs can often be attributed to a failing Headlamp relay. Here are a few common situations:
Issue1 - Headlamp switch will work backwards: Turn on the switch and theheadlights go off and turn off the switch and the headlights will goon.
Issue 2 - High beams will disappear. You will have nohighbeams. Be sure to check the headlight bulbs PRIOR to ordering therelay. Remember however that it is possible for both high beams burn out at the same time
Issue3 - High beams will not work only the low beams will.
Issue 4 - A single bulb setting (low or high) on either side will not work and bulb replacement will fix it.
You can sometimesfix these issues by removing the relay, taking off the cover andresoldering the connections on the relay bottom. To perform this repair, go to my illustrated tutorial at customsaab.com.
In some cases youwill have to replace the relay to effect a long term cure. The aftermarket replacement can be had at Eeuroparts.com for about $60.00:
