Question about 2002 Saab 9-5

3 Answers

Hello I am having a problem getting my 2003 Saab 9-5 Aero to start. There is no check engine light on at this time. It all started literally when at random times it would fail to start after driving for awhile. I would let it sit and cool down and then eventually it would start again. Now it will not start at all. I replaced the fuel pump and it didn't solve the problem. I noticed no spark to the cassette and it appears to not be getting gas to fire. So I tryed a used cassette to see if this would work and once again nothing. I really am not sure where to go next? I appreciate any insight you can give me on this frustrating problem. By the way the car has 181k on it. Thanks again.

Might be a neutral safety switch problem. I had the same issues. good luck.

1. Removed positive lead on battery.
2. Removed panel below steering wheel.
3. Located Fuse 36 and removed the fuse.
4. Located the Relay box and located the starter relay.
5. Using electrical pliers I removed the insulation from the green/black wire coming from the bottom side of fuse #36.
6. Using 18 Gauge wire, I wrapped a piece of wire (jumper) around the exposed section of the green/black wire. The wrapped the splice with electrical tape.
7. I then removed the starter relay and located the #86 contact.
8. I connected the jumper wire to the #86 contact.
9. I then reconnected starter relay.
10. I placed the car in "Drive", turned the key (slightly), and the starter turned.

Also, check that it is a CPS sensor. Sounds like it might be that.

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!

Hello I am having a problem getting my 2002 Saab 9-5 to start. There is no check engine light on at this time. It all started literally when at random times it would fail to start after driving for awhile....


Almost for sure this is the CPS sensor that is on the front of the ENGINE under the heat shield to the right. It's a bit tricky to replace, but not bad if you have small fingers, etc....

2004 Saab 9-3 Aero. Coolant tank and car beginning to not start.


coolant is what makes the car keep cool. it wouldnt keep it from running. sounds like a gas problem. check the fuel pressure and check all the fuel compartments. take it to a mechanic.. not Saab. they will do it for cheap maybe nothing.

When i start the engine make noise for few seconds


It sounds like you need to check and replace your engine oil and oil filter. This will happen when it is cold and dirty and it takes time to get to the oil ports in the engine. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. Thanks.

Fault with saab 9-3 aero


Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.

- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all
- windscreen washers don't work, at all
- "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers
freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the
control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position
- same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)

The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself,
partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above.
also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.

Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple"
worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine.
Good luck.
