Saab 9 3 fuse box

Which fuse protects the hydraulic roof pump on a 2011 9-3.I have recently changed a leaking hose and whilst the fluid level was low I think a fuse has blown as SID now says "manual operation only"

The box is labled.
but on many fuses, there are 10 loads. or more (park lights)
only the FSM shows what is really connected in the wiring.
are you in the USA> yes, then read the schematics pages.
at alldata.com
if not in USA< im clueless. our cars are different here USA export SAAB , a var rare car here.
good luck finding free SAAB schematics.

SOURCE: hydraulic pump automatic roof

I've done it 2 ways:
1st - loosen the pump assy - nuts on either end, then unscrew the plastic bottle. This is a pain unless your hands are the size of a baby's!
2nd - undo the nut on the side of the pump assy. (looks brass, from memory and is about a 13mm) and this uncovers a hole which leads into the top of the bottle. Then use a small hose and syringe to refill. This can get messy but was slightly easier than the first method.

Had same problem, in the boot right hand side, behind the removable panel there is :
1 - a hydraulic reservoir which must be at correct level.
2 - a black box (stc) this controls the roof system,
switch ignition off then pull the 2 connectors off for 30sec then reconnect.
This worked and hope this resolves your problem

SOURCE: Saab 93 convertible 1999, how do you refill hydraulic roof

To check the oil level open the boot - at the very back remove the 4 plastic clips that hold the carpet in place. Slightly to the left of the center there are 2 holes - shine a light in the bottom and look through the top one to check the level.
To add oil - fold down the seat backrest. Remove the plastic trim - held on by 4 screws and 2 pop out plastic cllips. Undo the 8 large bolts that hold the cover in place - 2 on top and 3 on front and back.Then lift up the cover from the front edge. You will then be able to get to the resevoir - you will need a funnel to poor fluid in.

SOURCE: 2001 saab 93 convertible top problem

If you lower the back seat you will see a plastic cover on the botom of the opening. Remove the cover (6 appolstry fasteners) to reveal a metal box. The box is not actually a box but a cover for the hydrolic pump. Remove the fscrews from the lid and lift. The resevouar is clear and easy to check against the two fill lines on the side.

I have a 54 saab 9-5 that has lost pressure on the brake pedal, fluid level keeps dropping to very low and there is a whoosh sound from around the servo, does anyone have any idea as to the problem.


If you have checked round the rest of the vehicle for brake fluid leaks and you are unable to pinpoint a leak. Eg calipers, brake flexible hoses, brake pipes. The next step would be to check the brake master cylinder by removing from the servo to check the rear seals.

My saab 93 convertible 1998.roof is not working proparely the motor is working but it seems that i have a problem with the hydraulic are at fault can you tell me how to top up the fluid for it thanks


there should be a alan key port on the drive motor/pump side that if you remove will allow you to put fluid into keep in mind that this is a closed system. The fluid should not need to be topped up unless there is a leak... good luck

Green hydralic liquid coming from convertible top saab 2004 9-3


You are probably leaking hydraulic (ATF) fluid.
Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. Replace any leaking lines or cylinders. Always replace them in pairs.
When the leak is fixed...
Behind the rear seat is the motor/pump/reservoir.
With the top down, fill the reservoir with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times.
Repeat till the reservoir will accept no more fluid.
You can change it to a manual top by removing the bolt at the top of the cylinders and lowering the both shafts down into the cylinders.

19886 saab 900 convertible roof not working.


Hi David:

First, check the fuses for the hydraulic motor; if they're blown, replace and monitor (why did they blow? Perhaps an overload, or ...) These fuses are located in the engine bay on top of the fender by the front right wheel housing.

Next check the voltage supply to the top switch, possibly a loose connection or broken wire.

Also check relays C (raising top) and D (lowering top) under the rear seat.

Lastly check for voltage at the pump, also under the rear seat, when the switch is actuated, and that the voltage polarity reverses when the switch is actuated the other way (up or down).

After that, it's a hydraulic/mechanical problem. Check the fluid level in the pump reservoir (use SAAB fluid to top up if low) Fluid level should be at the upper marker with top down, and at the lower marker with top up.

Check behind the rear seat side panels that the piston shaft is still properly attached to the roof mechanism bracket at one end, and the piston itself is still firmly attached to the body. Look for any leakage from the system.

If all tests out OK and looks good under the rear seat and behind the side panels, then there is the possibility that the piston seals have failed and the fluid is just circulating around without activating the piston. Pistons are available (http://www.convertibletopguys.com/cgi-local/displaycat.cgi?cat=584 - scroll down) but the entire system should be removed to avoid getting hydraulic fluid on the interior.

However, that fact that you can operate the hood using the bypass valve (manually) would indicate that the hydraulics are likely OK, and that it's probably an electrical or mechanical problem.

Good luck!

93 convertible top wont go down


This happenrd to me the first few times after filling the tank. When the roof stops push the switch to up then back until movement stops then go back to down, eventually it will get rid of all the air in the system and the roof should start to work.
