What kind of electrical repairs would need to be done for code P0410 2000 Saab 9-5? The air injection pump was checked out and there were no issues so they recommend I take it to a place that does el

I drove the car from Cincinatti to Denver. The car has 83,000 miles on it now. It did fine all the way to Denver, but 1 week after driving around the town (interstate and standard roads) the tailpipe started producing a thick whiteish smoke. I had checked the oil level and the coolant and all seemed fine. Any ideas on what the electrical problem is and how much it would normally cost to fix?

I really can't give you an idea of what the cost would be. I would call an electrician and see what they would tell you. You can call multiple places to see if their answers are different at all. Just make sure that you check online reviews on whoever you chose to go to.

There is a PIP on this concern that states that you're vehicule may have a pcv system problem. Simply take off you're air intake tube (the tube between the trottle body and air filter) and check to see if the trottle body or air intake tube are oily inside (like realy wet). If so i'd recomend going to you're dealer, they got a special procedure for this problem.

SOURCE: 2001 Saab 93 was having battery issues and EVERY warning is on!

First check all of your fuses with a test light. When you hooked the cables up backwards something shorted and a fuse is blown. Once you replace the bad fuses the lights and everythinmg should go back to normal operation.

Code p2445 - how to repair or bypass

P2445 code definition

Secondary Air Injection System Pump Stuck Off Bank 1

What the P2445 code means

The secondary air injection system is designed to pump outside air into the exhaust in order to help reduce harmful emissions. This trouble code indicates that the powertrain control module has detected a malfunction with this system on the bank 1 side of the engine.

What are the causes of the P2445 code?

The most common cause of this trouble code is a failed air injection pump. The air injection pump is designed with a check valve inside which only allows air to flow in one direction, preventing exhaust gases from escaping through the air pump and only allowing air to enter. When this check valve fails, moisture is able to get inside the air pump. During the winter months this moisture can freeze, causing the air pump to seize up and possibly break. Other possible causes of this issue would include damaged wiring or connectors associated with the air pump, blown fuses, or a broken serpentine belt

Air lock in saab fuel injector

I've never really heard of an air lock in a fuel injection system.
The computer opens the injectors and the electric pump in the tank pushes the fuel to the engine.
Have you checked fuel pressure at the injectors with a gauge to see if it is normal ?

I have the following codes po410 and po491.......can u please tell me what they are so I can get my car fixed asap


Secondary air injection (trademarked as Air Injection Reactor) is a process where fresh air is injected into the exhaust system to allow for a fuller combustion of exhaust gasses.

The possible causes are:
SAIR pump low or now air flow
SAIR bypass solenoid leaking/blocked or stuck open/closed
SAIR diverter valve leaking/blocked or stuck open/closed
SAIR air hose restriction
SAIR vacuum hose restriction or leaking

Check to make sure your air filter isn't dirty - and replace if needed. Otherwise I would suggest having your local trusted auto repair facility diagnose and repair the issue. A scan tool will be needed to properly diagnose the issue.

Code P0411 is showing Secondary Air Flow problem

The P0411 code you are getting with that SAAB is the SECONDARY AIR INJECTION CHECKVALVE 95% of the time. This sometimes will allow condensation to build up in the air lines
that run to the air pump and air filter. Its part of the emmisions BS that they put on these cars. The check valve is costly, its usually about $100 or more depending on where you live I guess but its
much cheaper than $600+ dollars plus labor for a new air pump.

In some uncommon instances this may not be the problem, but this is a known issue with the SAAB Q93 and some other models. Once replaced it should be ok for another 100,000 miles +/-.

Hope this helps as late as I am finding your issue!

1996 saab 900-s

There's a black plastic valve below the battery that fails frequently on these cars. It has a vacuum line and 2 thumb-sized hoses going to it. A lot of times the valve will be broken in half and obviously bad. This will cause a secondary air injection code. Also the vacuum hose to it needs to be intact. Check this stuff first.
