2000 Saab 9-5 non-turbo; driving at road speeds, no problem, had a sudden lose of power and a smoke screen coming from the exhaust. Stopped, checked the cooling fluid, OK, checked the oil it was barely registering, maybe a quart left, what could cause this.

Take it back to the Dealer........Their Problem not yours.
It is possible that a plug was removed during the service and at some stage the ignition was switched on before the plug was reconnected , this would cause a check light and the computer would store this until the light was reset.
Hope this helps.

I have a 1997 Saab se turbo 2.0 the check gearbox light comes on then a week or so later will go out any help would be great thanks keith


Check engine and check gearbox on an automatic...neutral safety switch is going out. First couple starts like that and it seems like it's in limp home mode...it is. A few more starts and it will reset itself. Mine did so reliably at the 5th restart until I changed it.

Get a used on if you can, they are not really rebuildable reliably. Pain to change, it's under the battery tray and miserable to get to.

My 2003 Saab 9-5 Aero 4-cyl Turbo Won't start. However, I have power in car, lights windows and radio works. But it won't turn-over. It could be Starter or Starter Relay. I can't find out


Ok, those systems might still work because the not require as much energy as the starter. Check the Battery Voltage with a good Voltmeter. If below 12, there might be your problem!

I have a Gearbox malfunction linited performance signal on my 2004 Saab 9-3 2.0 turbo and i'm wondering what may have cased this problem.


9 time out of 10 it is either (1) computer glitch; (2) the input speed sensor; (3) a wiring short; or (4) neutral safety switch. If your tranny operates fine even with the message (the message may disappear after a few starts), that means the problem is most likely with one of the above, rather than the tranny itself. Your car generates error codes that a Saab deal with a Tech 2 Scanner can read. That will pinppoint the error source. Good luck.

Check Engine Light!


Sounds like you will need to have the codes read at SAAB dealer to confirm no fautly sensors have caused this to happen.
There may still be a bad component that is triggering lamp.
