I had the same problem with my saab 93, and it turned out to be the air con pump which set me back £250 plus labour.

SOURCE: how do I replace my 2004 Saab 9 3 linear's water pump.

Re : the computer , they better cover it under warranty or they ****.
Re : the water pump , you have a leak and they say it is the water pump , I have no reason to doubt that they have honestly checked out the problem and determined that a new water pump is the only solution but , damn $ 1000 is pretty steep. I would look around for another mechanic for a second opinion and a quote. Avoid dealerships. Not sure what engine you have but i just looked in my saab with a 2.3 and hope I never have to do mine. I am pretty good with a wrench but I know there would be lots of swearing involved.

SOURCE: my 2003 SAAB 9-3 check engine light and

unfortunately this means you need to get yourself to a trusted transmission repair facility very quick. the torque convertor on your vehicle is not operating the way it should. this is going to be an expensive repair, i tell you this so your not suprised. but do your homework and find someone with a great reputation for their work. dont take your saab to just anyone. these cars can get really screwed up without the right people workin on it. the transmission will need to come out.

2005 montana sv6 sitting in traffic temp gauge goes up codes P0128 and P0481 present


DTC P0128 Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Below Thermostat Regulations Temperature
An engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor monitors the temperature of the coolant. This input is used by the powertrain control module (PCM) for engine control and as an enabling criteria for some diagnostics.
The air flow coming into the engine is accumulated and used to determine if the vehicle has been driven within the conditions that would allow the engine coolant to heat up normally to the thermostat regulating temperature. If the coolant temperature does not increase normally or does not reach the regulating temperature of the thermostat, the diagnostics that use ECT as enabling criteria may not run when expected.
If the PCM detects the calibrated amount of air flow and engine run time have been met, and the ECT has not met the minimum thermostat regulating temperature, DTC P0128 sets.

P0481
Cooling Fan Relay 2 Control Circuit
PCM
DTC P0480 or P0481

Have you changed the thermostat ?
Do you know how to test cooling fan relay (S)
Battery positive voltage is supplied to the cooling fan 1 relay from the COOL FAN #1 fuse. The powertrain control module (PCM) controls the cooling fan 1 relay by grounding the low speed cooling fan relay control circuit via an internal solid state device called a driver.
Battery positive voltage is supplied to the cooling fan 2 relay and the cooling fan 3 relay from the COOL FAN #2 fuse. The PCM controls the relays by grounding the high speed cooling fan relay control circuit.
When the PCM is commanding a relay on, the voltage potential of the control circuit should be low, near 0 volts. When the PCM is commanding the control circuit to a relay, the voltage potential of the circuit should be high, near battery voltage. If the fault detection circuit senses a voltage other than what is expected, the DTC will set.
The PCM will monitor the control circuit for the following conditions:
• A short to ground
• A short to voltage
• An open circuit
• An open relay coil
• An internally shorted or excessively low resistance relay coil
When the PCM detects any of the above conditions, the DTC will set and the affected driver will be disabled.

Engine codes 0700/0882/0882pd


The p0700 is a code set to make the engine control module turn the service engine light on because there are fault codes stored in the transmission control module. The p0882 is for power input low to t.c.m. Check fuses and power and grounds to the powertrain control module.

Po1682


Here is the definition for code 1682.
Problem could be with the ignition switch, the harness, or the computer.

P1682 CHEVROLET Description There are 2 ignition voltage circuits supplied to the Engine Control Module (ECM). The first ignition circuit is provided by the powertrain relay, through a fuse. This ignition 1 voltage circuit supplies power to all the internal ECM circuits associated with the throttle actuator control (TAC) operation. The second ignition 1 voltage circuit is supplied by the run/crank relay through a fuse, and is used to power the remaining internal ECM circuits. If the ECM detects a voltage difference between the 2 ignition 1 voltage circuits, DTC P1682 will set

TCM FAULT CODE PO888 CHECKE WIRING CAN NOT FIND FAULT ANY ONE HELP


DTCP0888 for All Makes
Category: Powertrain
Definition: TCM Power Relay Sense Circuit

Definetivelly you'll need visit your dealer... this code refers to the Transmission Control relay output circuit in the PCM (Power Control Module), when the relay is commanded to turn on the PCM is not seeing the relay power on, most of the time when we see this code, it can be cured by doing a re-flash on the Power Control Module.

Hope this helps.

A C compressor want come on, no fire to the compressor nor low pressure switch


Your A/C compressor clutch is controlled by the Electronic Climate Control Module (ECCM) via the compressor clutch relay. The low pressure switch only completes the circuit between fuse #A3 in the engine compartment fuse block to the high pressure switch, which in turn, completes the circuit to the control (or primary) side of the clutch relay. It does not provide direct power for your clutch. The primary ground side of the relay is controlled By the Powertrain Control Module (PCM).

If there is no power on either terminal of the low pressure switch, it can only be a blown 10 Amp fuse #A3 or a broken wire between the fuse and the low pressure switch. If the fuse is blown, replacing the fuse will not fix your car unless you find out and correct the reason why the fuse blew.

If this is not the problem, the only EFFECTIVE way to diagnose this system is to scan your computer system for fault codes and diagnose it accordingly.

What causes a p 0327 diagnostic code on a 95 contour


P0327 - Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Low Input Bank 1 or Single Sensor
First check the knock sensor connector. If the connector is clean and secure, replacing the knock sensor usually takes care of the problem.

- An excessively low voltage from the sensor is sent to Powertrain Control Module (ECM) or Engine Control Module (ECM)

The knock sensor is attached to the cylinder block. It senses engine knocking using a piezoelectric element. A knocking vibration from the cylinder block is sensed as vibrational pressure. This pressure is converted into a voltage signal and sent to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Engine Control Module (ECM).

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/Loss of Power

Possible causes
- Knock sensor circuit short to GND.
- Knock sensor circuit short to PWR.
- Knock sensor circuit open.
- Damaged knock sensor.
- Faulty Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Engine Control Module (ECM).


Test and check it. Hope helps.
