    Could also be a bad earth connection too as it doesn't make good contact on the circuit. Not sure about the Saab 9-5, but in the boot of the Saab 9-3, there are 2 earth (ground) connections which you can unscrew, clean, which may help, if this could be the problem. I had a similar problem, I just cleaned both ground connections and it worked for me, mind you on the Saab 9-3, although there shoudn't be that much of a difference as ground connections have the same effect..

Saabs are finicky here. Try replacing all your tail lights at once and use bulb grease to help insure a good connection between the bulb and the socket.

Try looking at the filament checker relay. This gave me the same problems + headlight main beam trouble on one side. Got it re-soldered = cured!

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.

On my 2003 model 2500HD Silverado, the right tail light doesn't illuminate, although the brake light actuates normally. I have the right blinker function and the back up light also works. I had power...


In those years of chevy trucks they have circuit board in the tail light assembly. You will need to replace the circuit board ( the thing the bulbs push into) you can perchase one at your local auto parts store.

Headlight - Xenon - on 2003 Saab 9.3. Is this something a handy owner can replace. Also the dealer wants $275.00 for the bulb. Is this really the price?


if that is for one bulb, that's crazy. you can get them much cheaper online. it's not difficult to replace the bulb yourself. the bulbs ususally cost roughly $117 USD each. If the dealer is suggesting they will change the bulbs for both, it's a deal to have them replaced for less than $250 USD. I won't lie, it's a pain in the ****.
