I also have this code..from what I've read the DIC can cause this code, even though the code says something is wrong with your throttle body. The DIC may be under recall (mine is and I'm having it replaced ASAP). Hopefully this helps.

Hi my Saab 2001 93 2.0 turbo convertible has lost power get into limp home mode I reset it every few weeks codes come up p1105 p1260 p1251 p 1264 what do u think is wrong ?


code p1105 refers to manifold absolute pressure(MAP) sensor, TC system-leak detected. causes ---intake leak, ---hoses There are to references to p1105 The second response is still map sensor but the causes are---TC system--mechanical fault--air leak between throttle body-TC,map sensor---TC system--exhaust blockage
code p1260 refers to throttle return spring--weak spring force. causes ---mechanical fault,--,throttle control unit
code p1264 refers to throttle valve opening-accelerator released causes ---throttle control unit---mechanical fault

Hi,If you press and hold the reset button on the SID unit the message will go out ,however it might come back on a few times so you may have to repeat this for a couple of days till it stays out.
