Question about Saab 9 3

Open Question

2004 Saab 9-3 - The power door lock doesnt work on the passenger side only. When I press the button I can hear it trying and then only the drivers side locks or unlocks - then I get a message on the car LED screen that reads "automatic lock failure." I can lock and unlock the door manually. Any ideas on what this may be? Thanks

SOURCE: Sliding door lock

If you check the doorlock actuator it is more than likely bad. On my caravan I had to replace actuators on both sliders. Cannot get correct actuators at autoparts stores. Either go to a salvage yard or to the dealer to get them.

Does the key still pop the trunk/hatch? That would also indicate whether or not it was the key remote. If that function works it's probably nothing on the car (i.e. "receiver") end.

There is a very good SAAB forum that would likely be the best place to find out if somebody has has this issue before and what they have done: www.saabcentral.com

you need to spend some time triing the best you can to get the top of the door panel open a bit to see what is broken inside, most likely a clip.The other thing to try is a slim jim to get the door open then repair the door lock.

SOURCE: 1998 Jetta Passenger Door Won't Unlock

I had a similar problem with my son's 1998 Jetta K2 4 door. I sprayed loads of WD40 into the locking area from the end of the door through the clip slot, worked the mechanism sprayed some more and finally it start working. My mechanic said these are very prone to moisture causing rusting on the moving parts.

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

Door locks not working


could be a wiring short, but if you hear the lock motor moving i believe the lock actuator has broken free. the rivets break free at times and i've used screws and washers the reattach the actuator in place without having to pull apart the door. try to see if you hear 1 doorlock at a time. if when you press the button, the motor sounds and theres movement thats your problem. if you press and theres no motor then you either have no power to the motor or its bad. current tester to the switch will tell you either way.

Check for a bad switch in the door.
Water leaking from the rag top-door seal joint often drains into the switch, causing a short or bad contact eventually.

I have a 2004 9-3 and the passenger side window,mirror and lock don't have power the fuse is good. Any ideas? thanks Kim


This is common. Try disconnecting the harness at the door connector (by the door check and hinges) and then reconnecting the connector. Test. Still and issue, disconnect the battery's negative battery connection. If that doesn't do it, you will have to go to a Saab dealership with a Tech II and have them update the software for the Passenger Door Module and re-add the Module in programming.

make sure than you have not split any fluids on the passenger front door most of the times is where the module to control the windows and doors is located, try by unpluging the batterie and the after a minute plug it back and see what happend but if any of your ft doors have been split with liquid or rain has gone inside then most likelly the module got moisture and not working
