Your problem is either the relay falty and or shorting out and you will find it either in the fuse box or under the bonnet a box with about 6 or more in it put your hand on them and 1 will click thats you problem one pull out and replace it.
No 2 also check on the wiring on the back of the lights and see if any of the wires are loose/burnt/or getting hot when on and goes off.
Let me know how you get on Ron

My xenon headlight indicator comes on and the front light is out. I turn off the car, restart it, and the headlight indicator comes off. I have a 9.5 2003 SAAB.


check to see if the wire is connected to the bulb. also check you're fuse box and pull the headlight fuse to make sure it is still good. if all these are good try replacing the bulb.

This is probably a problem with the orange headlight relay under the hood in the relay black box. Take the relay out and clean contacts and put back in. If does not fix, try a new relay or swap with another 9-5 to troubleshoot.

Headlights are not working


Strange headlamp problems on Saabs can often be attributed to a failing Headlamp relay. Here are a few common situations:
Issue1- Headlamp switch will work backwards: Turn on the switch andtheheadlights go off and turn off the switch and the headlights willgoon.
Issue 2 - High beams will disappear. You will havenohighbeams. Be sure to check the headlight bulbs PRIOR to orderingtherelay. Remember however that it is possible for both high beams burnout at the same time
Issue3 - High beams will not work only the low beams will.
Issue 4 - A single bulb setting (low or high) on either side will not work and bulb replacement will fix it.
Youcan sometimesfix these issues by removing the relay, taking off thecover andresoldering the connections on the relay bottom. To performthis repair, go to my illustrated tutorial at customsaab.com.
In some cases youwill have to replace the relay to effect a long term cure. The aftermarket replacement can be had at Eeuroparts.com for about $60.00:

Instrument panel lights fail to come on when headlights switched on. Any clues? Fuse is OK, dimmer switch connections seem OK.


there may be a connector block vibrated off behind the panel or something could have blown bulbs but not fuse.
