Auto Zone sells these at a reasonable cost. Anywhere else is very expensive I have found

Actron is a good brand to use for either engine OBD-II or separately the ABS Brake OBD-II.

Try Amazon.com or Ebay.com to search for a deal.

Also, try Walmart. They have an OBD II Scanner for under $100.

Good luck to you.

    I like the one I got from walmart because it has plain english code descriptions and can be hooked up to a computer for updates and for suggestions on how to fix things on the vehicles from 1996 and on up.

How hard is it to replace a engine on a 2002 Saab 9-3


It's really easy if you have enough money. You simply drop it off at the mechanic and pay a lot. When the car is done, you pick it up...

OTOH, if you're poor or broke, it depends on your tool set and skill set. If you have lots of tools and some skills or some tools and lots of skills, it's not too bad (just work). If you are short on both and/or money, the job becomes much more difficult. If this is your first engine swap, plan on at least 3 things going horribly wrong. Have a couple hundred extra dollars to throw at these horrible problems as they occur. Don't do it on Sunday!

Bruce, ur best bet would be to replace the main control switch. change that switch and most likely all will be good. find urself a used main control (window) switch in the front or between front seats. buying used will be a hard find but still u will save money on that.

I hope this work out for u.

Lost only key for Saab 93 2004aero 2litre turbo 210 bhp was quoted silly money to fix. Got used key ignition and cim unit from scrap car and swopped to mine remote opens closes doors etc but now have...


The doors work on a different system to the ignition. The doors will unlock but the ignition key immobiliser is specific to each car. That means the car won't recognise the key. Replacing the lost key would have been the easiest fix even though it costs a lot. All you need is the vehicle details for your car. I was quoted £200 for a replacement Vauxhall key. Cheaper than replacing steering columns and associated electronics.
Your only other option is to take it to a Saab Dealer/specialist and pay the 'silly money' for them to reset and link the replacement scrap car key to your car.

I have a 2000 9-5 saab 4 cylinder but the a/c doesnt always blow but it sometimes blows, the cruise control doesnt work, and the engine has a knocking noise.


Well, these are 3 issues and for the A/C have to check the coolant pressure, engine knock is not good and will have to have it checked out by someone who knows Saabs.

2004 saab 9-3 turbo won't accelerate


i am the owner of a 2004 saab 9-3 that had the same problem. the car could barely make it up a slight incline.

after diagnostics, they determined that it was a faulty "pedal travel sensor" (engine code P1238), which cost $590. after labor and taxes, my total came to $747.53. yikes.

sucked to pay that much, but it fixed the problem.

My saab 9.5 starts but doesnt run the engine!


The pump comes as a complete unit from autozone for about $470. You should be able to gain acess under the rear seat to replace the pump. What you can do is remove the rear seat(making sure there is in fact an acess panel) and the trun the key adn see if you can hear the feul pump prime the system. If not, turn the key again and "smack" the pump assembly and see if it kicks on. If it does, replace it. If not it would be a good idea to get someone to jump it with the harness disconnected and see if it comes on or you can take a chance and replace it. It could fix it.

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.

Saab 9-5 se, heater problem


yes the problem can be solved, costly repair the arm on the control link is broken common problem the whole dash have to come a part I used to work at SAAB as a service writer and just getting a tech on the side was to costly for me and we use to charge customer any where from $1200-$1800, there also could be a lease expensive repair some time there is this part which looks like a toilet paper roll which breaks it could be replace for less money, I'm no mechanic but I'm pretty sure you can find one to take a look at it, and if your economy is any thing like ours it should be no problem finding one and I'm assuming you are not American from the words petrol and wind screen.
