1998 Saab 900 Convertible turbo. Mirrors, lighter, and heated seats do not work. I have checked the fuses and don't see any blown. I believe that it needs front struts. Don't have alot of money to spend on repairs any suggestions?

Mirrors you can adjust by hand(press left side or right side to move)
heated seats you can live without.
cigarette lighter ...no comment.
push one front corner down hard and let it bounce up,it should only bounce up then back to normal height.then do other side if either corner continues to bounce then you need to replace BOTH struts.

Just bought a 1998 Saab and the lighter may need replacing. As a nonsmoker I need this for charging my iPhone. How may I do so as I do not see a way into the lighter for replacing. I bought some generic fuses that seem not to work either.

Check your fuses, even fuses not associated with lighting. If all ok it is probably the muti-funtion switch on the steering column, It is the switch that your turn signal lever connects to.

How do i put the top down manually on 98 900 saab


There's a red lever behind the rear passenger seat, fold down the rear seats to the trunk and you'll see it. Pull the lever down, and this should disengage the convertible motor. You should now be able to move the top up or down with some resistance against the hydraulic fluid left in the lines.

Hi David:

First, check the fuses for the hydraulic motor; if they're blown, replace and monitor (why did they blow? Perhaps an overload, or ...) These fuses are located in the engine bay on top of the fender by the front right wheel housing.

Next check the voltage supply to the top switch, possibly a loose connection or broken wire.

Also check relays C (raising top) and D (lowering top) under the rear seat.

Lastly check for voltage at the pump, also under the rear seat, when the switch is actuated, and that the voltage polarity reverses when the switch is actuated the other way (up or down).

After that, it's a hydraulic/mechanical problem. Check the fluid level in the pump reservoir (use SAAB fluid to top up if low) Fluid level should be at the upper marker with top down, and at the lower marker with top up.

Check behind the rear seat side panels that the piston shaft is still properly attached to the roof mechanism bracket at one end, and the piston itself is still firmly attached to the body. Look for any leakage from the system.

If all tests out OK and looks good under the rear seat and behind the side panels, then there is the possibility that the piston seals have failed and the fluid is just circulating around without activating the piston. Pistons are available (http://www.convertibletopguys.com/cgi-local/displaycat.cgi?cat=584 - scroll down) but the entire system should be removed to avoid getting hydraulic fluid on the interior.

However, that fact that you can operate the hood using the bypass valve (manually) would indicate that the hydraulics are likely OK, and that it's probably an electrical or mechanical problem.

Good luck!

89 Saab Turbo convertible top problem


Check for power at the motor.
If you have it there and it doesn't run, you have a bad motor.
If you have no power, check at the relay.
If the realay has power in and not out, yoou have a bad relay.
If the relay has no power in, check the switch.
